Canada needs people with qualified skills to fill its vacancy of labor market. From January 2015, the Express Entry came into effect, and the traditional 3 programs (the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trade Program and the Canadian Experience Class) had been installed into this one system.
Other than the 3 skilled programs in Express Entry, each province or territory has its own skilled worker immigration streams. Among these streams, there are some that are independent from the Express Entry system, and there are some others that are connected with the Express Entry system.
The skilled worker programs, either the Express Entry, or the PNP, always provide a scoring system. If one candidate reaches the base line of the program, then he/she has the qualification to apply.
If one intends to apply through Express Entry system, he/she must also have acquired cut-off score of the Comprehensive Ranking System, which will be announced regularly.

If a foreign national may find a job in some of the Canadian provinces, the person might be eligible of applying for a provincial or federal SKILLED immigration program.
For most employers, if they intend to hire a foreign national instead of a PR or Canadian citizen, they will have to obtain a LMIA first. However, AIPP and some of the other provincial or regional programs exempt this requirement.
