In addition to the immigration categories under the Federal and Quebec programs, Canada has entered into bilateral agreements with all of its provinces and territories to allow the provinces and territories to select immigrants in accordance with their specific needs. Each province and territory has its own immigration departments with the objective of attracting immigrants to fill their specific needs. The programs vary from province to province. Most of the provinces have very attractive skilled workers and business programs.
