Canada Express Entry

Canada’s Express Entry system was introduced in 2015 to organize immigration applications for various immigration programs managed by the Express Entry System. To be considered for these programs, candidates must first submit an Express Entry profile to the pool of candidates. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) then ranks all the profiles against each other and assigns each candidate a CRS score out of a total of 1200 points.
In order to submit a profile through the Express Entry system, candidates must meet the eligibility requirements for one of the three federal programs.

Eligibility and requirements for Express Entry

Based on your profile, you will receive a score and become a part of the pool of candidates who have created their Express Entry profile. Once you receive your score and join the candidate pool, it is essential to keep your information up to date and look for opportunities to improve your score. This will increase your chances of receiving an invitation for Canadian permanent residence. Finally, If you are selected, you will be issued an invitation to apply, and you will need to submit a comprehensive set of documents supporting the information you provided. These documents will include reference letters, additional identity documents, police clearance certificates, and the results of a medical examination.

Express Entry candidates should have a university or college degree, skilled work experience, and proficiency in English and/or French.
