It is a points-based system used by the Canadian government to rank immigration candidates in the Express Entry pool. Here, candidates receive points based on factors like age, education, work experience, language skills and adaptability.

What is The Work Procedure for Express Entry?

The Express Entry System oversees three main programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FST) and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Following submission of an application, candidate profiles are scored by the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) based on a variety of criteria, including age, educational attainment, specialised work experience and fluency in both English and French. Their standing in the Express Entry pool is decided by these factors.

In keeping with Canada’s immigration objectives, this strategy guarantees a simple and transparent selection procedure.

If you’re aiming for Canadian immigration through Express Entry, make sure you understand the CRS point system and its various factors to optimise your chances of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA).
