The PNP is only one of the many programs open to foreign nationals who want to immigrate to Canada. Other than government policy, immigration trends also reflect international developments. According to the Express Entry Year-End Report of 2020, the IRCC started to focus on Canadian Experience Class after the COVID-19 pandemic began. In 2019, about half of all Invitations To Apply (ITA) were issued to candidates from the Federal Skilled Worker category. In 2020, that number dropped to 32 per cent.

This includes popular immigration streams such as Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades and Canadian Experience Class.
