Express Entry is an online system used by IRCC to manage applications for permanent residence for 3 federal programs in the Economic Immigration Category:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
- Federal Skilled Trades Program
- Canadian Experience Class
All applicants who have submitted a profile in the Express Entry System are placed in a pool of candidates.
IRCC uses a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to evaluate, score and select candidates in the Express Entry pool. The CRS attributes points to candidates based on:
- English and/or French Skills (Canada’s two official languages)
- Work experience
- Whether the candidate has a valid job offer, and
- Adaptability (how well you are likely to settle in Canada)
Candidates in the Express Entry Pool can also be nominated by one of the Canadian provinces and be invited to apply for permanent residency.
Express Entry draws can be whether for all program or for one specific program. Candidates in the pool who achieved the minimum score set for a draw will be issued an ITA – Invitation to Apply, being invited to apply for permanent residency.
When applying for permanent residency, you must also show that you have enough funds to support yourself and your dependents after you arrive in Canada, as well as provide proof of a clean police record in all countries in which you have resided and medical record for all family members.
Cando Canadian Immigration Services can help to make the process as easy as possible for you and your family. We ensure your profile is fully completed to maximize your points and the potential of getting an invitation to apply for permanent residency.
