Express Entry is a system adopted by the Canadian Government to manage applications for Canadian permanent residence through three economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades.
The system boasts efficient processing time, with the majority of applications being processed between six to eight months.
How does it work?
In brief, candidates are required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) by creating a profile in the Express Entry portal summarizing their skills and credentials including age, education, language, work experience, and others.
Following the submission, eligible candidates are entered into a pool of applicants, where the Comprehensive Ranking System will be automatically applicable and applicants will be ranked on a scale of 1200 points.
The highly ranked candidates will then be invited to apply for permanent residency as skilled immigrants through regular draws from the pool by IRCC.
