EXPRESS ENTRY

A Quicker Way to Become Part of Canada

CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY PROGRAM

Canada Express Entry is a selection system designed for immigrants with the work skills and attributes needed to benefit the country and succeed in Canada. These immigrants have skills that are sought-after, they receive faster processing times (six months or less) by going through the programs that make use of the Express Entry system:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

This allows you to make the move to Canada faster.

How to Start Your Canada Express Entry (EE Profile)?

The first step is for potential immigrants to complete an Express Entry profile online. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) tool also known as a CRS calculator, gives score based on the answers you provide in your profile about:

  • Job skills
  • Education
  • Language ability
  • Work experience
  • Other factors related to immigration success.

Once you submit the completed profile and are found to meet the criteria, you will be included in the Canada immigration pool the federal and provincial programs draw.

Candidates in the Express Entry pool can advance their chances of being hired by contacting employers directly as well as by using Canada’s job bank.

About Canada Express Entry Invitation and PR Process

  • Periodically, the government of Canada, as well as provincial and territory governments, will invite applications for one or more of the programs from those in the pool who meet or exceed a certain point level.
  • Those with the right point level, a valid job offer from a Canadian employer or a nomination by a province or territory will receive an Invitation to Apply through Express Entry – depending upon the program(s) seeking new applicants.
  • The Invitation to apply is also an online process and gives candidates 90 days to submit their application through that program for permanent residence.

Important Factors Affecting Canada Express Entry Profile

  • Express Entry provides a quicker application processing time for those eligible in one of the three national programs (Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades and Canadian Experience Class) and many of the Provincial Nominee programs (PNP).
  • Express Entry is not valid for those seeking to immigrate to the province of Quebec.
  • In the case of legally married or common-law partners where one or both meet one of the three program’s criteria, either spouse can be the principal applicant and obviously it’s best to choose the person with the highest CRS score.
