The Express Entry system immigration process is completed in three parts – where interested applications must first submit an online Express Entry form. After submitting the application online, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will review the application to assess whether the applicant is considered eligible. If the applicant is eligible, they will be placed into a pool with other eligible candidates. Among these candidates, those whose profiles meet the criteria set out by Canadian employers, as well as the Government of Canada, will receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence.
Express entry is not an Immigration program but rather a system used by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to select candidates for immigration to Canada under one of the following Economic immigration program. The system is all electronic which involves dealings with the federal government, provincial government as well as Canadian employers.
- Federal Skilled Worker
- Federal Skilled Trades Worker
- Canadian Experience Class
- A portion of the Provincial Nominee Program
Express Entry allows applicants a faster entry into Canada, puts you in touch with potential employers as well as eliminates mountains of paper work that was traditionally required for these types of visas. There are also benefits for employers as well who wish to use this system where it allows an employer to have access to many skilled international candidates and allows you to get your employees into Canada quicker as well.
