Express Entry Program

The Canadian government has established a new computerized system to manage Canadian permanent residency applications for completing labour criteria under specific economic immigration programmes, which was launched in January 2015. The Government of Canada selects qualified employees who can demonstrate their ability to contribute to Canada’s economy.

Express Entry Immigration is the quickest method to immigrate to Canada for qualified applicants. The eligible applicant can make their profile on Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s portal to receive a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The core factors like Work experience, age, education, language, and other variables are used to gain the assign points. The IRCC can select the profiles from the pool and the top CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) scorers are then asked to apply for permanent residency in Canada. This system is used to select the qualified skilled applicants who meet the minimum requirement of Canadian experience class, Federal skilled worker, Federal skilled trade program and related Provincial nominee program.
