Express Entry Canada
Express Entry is a digital platform that streamlines the application process for skilled workers seeking permanent residency in Canada.
Canada's Express Entry system manages immigration applications for the Federal Skilled Worker, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades programs, among others. By creating an Express Entry profile, individuals who wish to live and work full-time in Canada and meet the eligibility criteria for at least one of these immigration programs can express their interest in becoming permanent residents of Canada. Once a candidate is included in the Express Entry pool, they receive a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), a points-based system. This score determines the candidate's position in the pool, with those who have the highest scores being invited to submit an application for permanent residency in Canada.
The CRS score takes into account factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other criteria. Every two weeks, the Canadian government conducts a draw, during which the top-ranking candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency in Canada.
