Express Entry

Express Entry is the fastest and most popular pathway to permanent residence for immigrants seeking a new life in Canada. Canada welcomes around 110,000 skilled workers through the Express Entry system each year.
Express Entry is an online system used by the Canadian government to organize and process applications for skilled workers who wish to immigrate to Canada and acquire Canadian permanent residence status.

The system manages three main federal economic programs:
1.Federal Skilled Worker (FSW)
2.Federal Skilled Trades (FST)
3.Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

How it Works ?

Once an interested candidate submits an online profile, the federal government determines if the candidate is eligible for a program managed by Express Entry. Eligible candidates are accepted into the Express Entry pool and are ranked according to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).The CRS is a points-based system used by the government to assess and rank candidates in the Express Entry pool.

The CRS score is calculated based on a candidate’s age, education, work experience, language skills, as well as other factors.

The eligibility criteria for the express Entry are:
  • Have at least one year, in the last 10 years of continuous full-time (or equivalent part-time) work experience in a skilled occupation
  • Be able to demonstrate on an approved language test a minimum of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) seven in either English or French
