Express Entry

Express Entry Program is a point-based Canadian immigration program used by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to offer visa opportunities to skillful professionals looking to settle in Canada.

All immigration programs managed under the Express Entry system have different eligibility criteria.

The Programs Are

  • Federal Skilled Worker (FSW)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FST)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Two Steps For Express Entry

  1. Complete an online Express Entry profile, be placed in pool of candidates and
  2.  Receive invitation to apply for permanent residence from IRCC.

Candidates in the pool are ranked using a point-based system (CRS).

Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS)

The CRS ranks eligible candidates for immigration to Canada through Express Entry.  The CRS ranks candidates based of the following factors:
  • Core human factors
  • Accompanying spouse or common-law partner factors
  • Skill transferability factors
  • Factors relating to a provincial nomination or a qualifying offer of arranged employment.

How long does Express Entry take?

Express Entry can take as little as six months to process, from submission of the Express Entry profile to the issuance of a permanent resident visa. However, not all cases will proceed this quickly. Your Express Entry profile will remain active in the pool of candidates for 12 months if you do not receive an invitation to apply. If after 12 months you have not received an invitation, you are welcome to resubmit your profile and remain in the pool. To break it down further:
  • Your profile will remain valid for 12 months in the pool of candidates
  • Upon issuance of the ITA, you will have 60 days to provide the requested full application of documents
  • Once the immigration authorities receive your complete application, your permanent resident visa, IRCC may process your application in about six months
