Express Entry

Express Entry Canada

In January 2015, the Canadian government launched a new electronic immigration system that allows skilled and qualified immigrants to come to Canada via express entry. 

It enables people from all over the world to apply for permanent residency in Canada based on their specific skills. The Express Entry Program was created primarily to recruit competent persons who could work in a range of trades across Canada.

What is Canada Express Entry Program?

For those who wish to settle in Canada, the Canada Express Entry Scheme allows them to fulfill their dreams. It is a point-based immigration scheme where the individuals are given points based on their abilities, experience, Canadian employment status, and nomination from a province or a territory.

Once a candidate submits an online profile, the federal government determines whether or not they are eligible for an Express Entry program. Candidates who meet the requirements are allowed into the Express Entry pool and ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS is a point-based system used by the government to rank and evaluate Express Entry applicants. The CRS score is determined by a number of elements, including a candidate’s age, education, work experience, language skills, and other considerations.

Every two weeks, the Canadian government selects the highest-scoring applicants from the Express Entry pool and issues them an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency.

Once the application for permanent residence is approved, the applicant will be able to migrate to Canada and enjoy all of the benefits that legal residents enjoy, including the ability to apply for Canadian citizenship once they are eligible.

Thus, Canada Express Entry is a great way to immigrate to Canada. 

Types of Express Entry Program

Because there are different levels of skilled workers, the Government of Canada designed four different Express Entry programs. The following are the programs:

  • Federal Skilled Trades Training Program (FSTP)
  • Skilled Worker Program (Federal) (FSWP)
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

The programs differ in terms of the qualifications required to participate such as language skills, qualified occupation, and work experience.

Eligibility Criteria for Express Entry Profile

To be qualified for any of the Express Entry programmes, an applicant must:

  • have at least one year of experience in a skilled occupation, which can be full-time or equivalent part-time.
  • The candidate must have a CLB (Canadian Language Benchmark) score of seven in either English or French.
  • Should have completed post-secondary education that meets or exceeds Canadian standards, as determined by ECA (Educational Credential Assessment)

These are the prerequisites for applying to the Express Entry Program for immigration to Canada. In addition to these qualifications, the candidate must have a higher CRS (Comprehensive Ranking Score).
