What is Express Entry?

When you decide to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker, Express Entry is one of the best selection systems set up by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The system has been designed to make the lives of those beginning the process of immigration so much easier.

Immigrating to any country can be a lengthy and challenging process, but if you have the right tools at your disposal, it can be one of the best experiences of your life.

The IRCC will select candidates based on the following immigration programs:

Who is Eligible For Express Entry?

You may enter the Express Entry Pool based on your history as a skilled worker in one of the four Canadian Express Entry programs (FSWC, FSTC, CEC, PNP).

This process has (2) steps:

Step 1: Determine your eligibility for one of the (4) skilled worker programs.

Step 2: Once eligibility is established, be ready to submit your documents and create an Express Entry Profile.

You must meet the minimum requirements to qualify for the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Because selections are made according to a point-based system, you need to meet the minimum requirements to qualify.

Remember that the more points you have, the better chances you will have to become approved. The system determines your eligibility for the program, as follows:

Confirm your eligibility

It is important to remember that you may not need to upload entire documents when submitting an Express Entry profile. Instead, you might only need to plug in relevant information. 

Here is a list of the most important documents:

  • passport or travel documents
  • language test results
  • education credential assessment report; only if
  • provincial nomination (if available)
  • written job offer from an employer in Canada (if available)

Once you are finally ready to submit your profile, your information will be collected to determine your final score in the CRS calculator. As mentioned earlier, you will be ranked based on how many points you accumulate (via comprehensive Ranking System – CRS) in the Express Entry pool.

Individuals with the highest scores in the pool will receive an invitation directly from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). You will have 60 days to submit your application for permanent residence (PR). 

The process of reviewing your documents, granting and issuing Permanent Residency generally occurs within (6) months or less.

Advantages of Express Entry

Thankfully the days of wasting time on lost or misplaced mail are over! Now that this program has become fully electronic, so much of the applicant’s time is being saved. From the moment you submit your application, you can obtain your Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) status in just six months or less. 

Maintain your anonymity. The new electronic system has made the process so much easier and accessible. But one of the most important achievements of this system is moving towards completely eliminating discriminations. Remember, selecting candidates is based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores, so it is very important that you become familiar with the Express Entry calculator. 

With Canada welcoming more (skilled) immigrants to the country, the IRCC may reduce the minimum CRS score required to be selected in the Express Entry draws. This is great news! 

Since the Express Entry Program is a federal immigration system, applicants who receive an invitation from the program can apply directly for Canadian Permanent Residence (PR). 

Once you receive your Canada Express Entry visa, you can settle anywhere in Canada. The greatest advantage of applying  for permanent residence under this program is that you are not required to prove your proficiency in French!
