Canada’s Federal Express Entry System
Canada’s Express Entry system for permanent residence selects the highest scoring applicants from a pool of qualified applicants according to the Comprehensive Ranking System. Approximately every two weeks, the top scoring applicants are invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence. Once you submit the required supporting documents, it can be possible to get Canadian permanent residence within six months.
Applicants must first qualify for one of the three Federal Immigration Programs:
- The Federal Skilled Worker Program: Requires a score of 67 points on the point grid
- The Canadian Experience Class: Requires one year of qualifying Canadian work experience
- The Federal Skilled Trades Program: Requires two years of related experience in the past five years and an approved job offer or trade certification
Building an Express Entry Profile and Entering the Express Entry Pool
Applicants create an online application and are scored according to the Comprehensive Ranking System. The Express Entry Point System Factors are as follows:
- Age: Young people are favoured
- Education: Credentials must be assessed by a certified organization
- Language Ability (English and/or French): Language tests (IELTS, CELPIP, TCF and TEF) determine points
- Canadian Work Experience: Low-skilled work does not qualify
- Foreign Work Experience: Low-skilled work does not qualify
- Canadian Job Offer: A positive LMIA or, in some circumstances, a qualifying LMIA-exempt work permit and job offer
- Canadian Education: Points for Canadian post–secondary credentials
- Canadian Siblings: Points for Canadian siblings older than 18 living inside Canada
- Marital Status: Single and married applicants receive different points
Provincial Immigration Programs for Skilled Workers
Applicants supported by provincial immigration programs must intend to settle in the province of application. Provincial nominees must still meet the minimum requirements of the IRCC stream under which they are applying, including language requirements, available settlement funds, and in some cases have an Express Entry profile.
