Canada Express Entry is the most prominent Canada immigration system introduced by the Federal government in January 2015. Its purpose is to offer the Canada Permanent Residence for individuals willing to migrate to Canada.
The Express Entry has marketed a significant departure as it overcomes the pitfalls of old Canada Permanent Residence process “first come, first served”. Also, it manages the applications to its main economic class immigration programs.
However, Express Entry itself is not an immigration program, but an online system created especially to manage Canada’s immigration application intake.
Moreover, this approach is meant that all applicants were guaranteed to have their applications reviewed and met all the requirements of permanent residence. Furthermore, it also ensures that the applicant passed an admissibility check for health, criminality, and security.
The eligible candidates under this Express Entry are based on their CRS score in several categories including FSWC, FSTC, CEC, and PNP (position of Canada).
The applicants who meet the eligibility criteria can submit an online profile known as an Express of Interest (EOI), under among one of the three federal Canada immigration programs or any other participating provincial immigration program to the Express Entry Pool.
The CRS considers the factors including age, education, English or French proficiency and work experience. Furthermore, the applicants who achieve higher scores are invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada through regular draws.
Candidate’s profiles are ranked against each other based on a CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) – a point-based system. Moreover, the applicants with the highest ranks will be considered for an Invitation To Apply (ITA) for Canadian Permanent Residence. Those who receive an ITA must submit a full application quickly and pay processing fees within two months. Click Here for Canada Permanent Residency Eligibility Check.
