what is Canadian express entry system

Here is everything you need to know about getting Permanent Residency through Canadian Express Entry! 

General info

Canada Express Entry is the most popular immigration system offering Canadian permanent residence, introduced by the federal government in January 2015 to replace the old “first come, first served” process. 

Express Entry is a regulatory system that manages the application of skilled foreign workers applying for Canada permanent residence.

CRS points are awarded on the basis of experience, skills, provincial/ territorial nomination and other criteria.

Express Entry is not an immigration program in itself, it is actually an online system created to manage Canada’s immigration applications intake. 

xpress Entry is not an immigration program in itself, it is actually an online system created to manage Canada’s immigration applications intake. Applicants who meet eligibility criteria submit an online profile known as an Expression of interest (EOI), under one of 3 federal Canada immigration programs or a participating provincial immigration program, to the Express Entry Pool.

Your profile scored by CRS must be eligible under one of Canada’s three federal streams:

  • Federal Skilled Worker(FSW) 
  • Federal Skilled Trades(FST) 
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

The processing time for PR applications usually take anywhere between 6-12 months.

All skilled immigration applicants that are eligible for the Express Entry System will be placed into the pool of candidates. Candidates in the pool are then ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS is used to determine which applicants in the pool will be invited to apply for permanent residence.. Candidates’ profiles are ranked against each other according to a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The highest-ranked candidates will be considered for an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Those receiving an ITA must quickly submit a full application and pay processing fees, within a delay of 90-days.

The CRS is a points-based system that gives a score to a candidate based on the information in the candidate’s profile. These scores allow candidates in the pool to be ranked against each other. Using below factors, applicants will be given a score out of a maximum of 1,200 points. The highest ranked applicants will be offered an invitation to apply for permanent residence (ITA) during period draws.

  • Skills
  • Work experience
  • Language ability
  • Language ability and education of the applicant’s spouse or common law partner
  • Possession of a job offer supported by a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment
  • Possession of a provincial government nomination for permanent residence
  • Certain combinations of language skills, education and work experience that result in a higher chance of the applicant becoming employed (skill transferability).

Only applicants with the following types of work experience may apply for immigration under the Express Entry System.

  • Skill Type 0 (Management Jobs)
  • Skill Level A (Professional Jobs)
  • Skill Level B (Technical Jobs and Skilled Trades)

The CRS prioritizes applicants who are likely to successfully settle and have a positive economic impact within Canada. For this reason, having an approved job offer or a provincial nomination for permanent residence will have a very positive impact on an applicant’s score.

Having an approved job offer in a managerial field (National Occupation Classification 00) is worth 200 points, while all other job offers (NOC O, A, B) is worth 50 points. Both points allocations will serve to significantly strengthen a candidate’s profile.

A provincial nomination will automatically result in 600 points being given to an applicant. This allocation of points will almost always guarantee that a candidate will receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence.
