Express Entry


Express Entry is a system used by the Canadian government to manage applications for permanent residence under certain economic immigration programs. It is designed to select candidates based on their skills, work experience, language proficiency, education, and other factors that contribute to their ability to settle in Canada and contribute to the Canadian economy.

Here are the key components of the Express Entry system:

  1. Programs Managed by Express Entry:
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
    • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
    • Some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs)
  1. Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS):
    • Express Entry candidates are assigned a score based on various factors using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Points are awarded for factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and others.
  2. Express Entry Draws:
    • Regular draws are conducted from the Express Entry pool, and candidates with the highest CRS scores are invited to apply for permanent residence.
    • Invited candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and have a limited time to submit their application.
  3. Profiles in the Express Entry Pool:
    • Candidates interested in applying for permanent residence through Express Entry need to create an online profile. The profile includes details about their education, work experience, language proficiency, and other factors.
    • Once the profile is submitted, it enters the Express Entry pool.
  4. Job Bank (Optional):
    1. Candidates can register with the Job Bank, which allows them to connect with potential employers in Canada. However, it is not mandatory.
  5. Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs):
    • Many provinces and territories in Canada have their own immigration programs aligned with Express Entry. If a candidate receives a nomination from a province, it adds additional points to their CRS score.
  6. Express Entry Draws and Minimum CRS Scores:
      • Periodically, the Canadian government conducts Express Entry draws, setting a minimum CRS score required for candidates to receive an ITA.
      • The minimum CRS score is determined based on the number of candidates in the pool and the immigration targets set by the government.


Express Entry is a competitive system, and candidates need to actively manage their profiles, improve their CRS scores, and stay informed about immigration policies and draw trends. The system aims to attract skilled immigrants who can contribute to Canada’s economy and fill labor market gaps.
