Canadian Express Entry Functioning

The Canadian Express Entry program has been implemented in January 2015 for managing immigration applications for numerous of the country’s economic immigrant programs, including Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker and Federal Skilled Trades. People who desire to migrate to Canada for living and working can officially express their interest in becoming a permanent resident of Canada by creating an Express Entry profile. They have to meet the criteria for at least one of these immigration programs under Express Entry. Once added to the Express Entry pool, applicants are scored according to the program’s point-based Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), and the CRS score will determine the applicant’s rank within the pool. Then, applicants with the highest scores will be invited by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to apply to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents.

A candidate’s Express Entry profile are accessed and ranked by the program’s CRS according to main predictors of economic success, factoring in their education, work experience, skills, language abilities, and a range of other elements that are recognized to help immigrants flourish in Canada. Eligible employers as well as Provinces and territories in Canada, can also directly take on potential immigrants from the Express Entry pool, and applicants who receive an eligible job offer or a provincial nomination are rewarded with a significant number of points which give their Express Entry score a major boost.
