Sneak Peek Into Canada Express Entry

Willing to live and work in Canada? Do you have a gist about Canada Express Entry?

Canada Express Entry is the unique point-based Immigration program that utilizes certain federal economic programs and lets skilled workers acquire Permanent Residency in Maple Leaf Country.

Launched in the year 2015 by the Government of Canada, the Express Entry System aims at accelerating the application processing time to help the qualified and eligible candidates immigrate to Canada.

The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) use the Express Entry system to categorize the profiles of Immigrants into four main categories. This includes The Federal Skilled Worker Class, The Federal Skilled Trade Class, the Specific Provincial Nominee Program, and The Canadian Experience Class.


How Express Entry System Works?

In the Express Entry System, the eligibility of the candidate is determined by the points obtained in the Comprehensive Ranking System. A few predefined factors that determine the eligibility of a candidate include:

  • Skills and Experience
  • Age
  • Skills, Education, and Work
  • Degrees, Diplomas, or Certificates
  • A valid job offer
  • A nomination from a province or territory
  • English or French language skills

After the evaluation, the candidates who obtain the highest scores get an Invitation to Apply (ITA). However, it is important to note that the ITA doesn’t give an acceptance of the candidate’s application.

The application can be accepted only when the candidate fills out the application for Permanent Residency and submit it within 60 days of receiving an ITA.

Candidates with the highest scores exceed those with the lowest scores. The IRCC is using a tie-breaking rule for Express Entry applicants with the same lowest score in any profile. However, this rule doesn’t apply to applicants with a score higher than the lowest score selected.
