What is Canada Express Entry System?

Express Entry 2022 Results and Review

Canada uses the Express Entry system to process temporary and permanent immigration applications. It is the most popular way to immigrate to Canada. Typically, IRCC conducts Express Entry immigration pool draws approximately every two weeks.

In each draw, IRCC issues candidates from the Express Entry immigration pool an Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence status.

Importantly, only a limited number of candidates with the highest points in the pool get ITAs. You can check any Express Entry draw here at Canada Express Entry draws – Latest Report.

After IRCC approves your application and you complete the landing process, you will officially become a Canadian permanent resident.

Eligibility for Express Entry immigration pool draws

In order to enter Express Entry immigration pool, you must first create an Express Entry pool draws profile on IRCC website.

As well, you must meet the eligibility requirements for one of three programs. These are: the Federal Skilled Worker Class; the Federal Skilled Trades Class; and the Canadian Experience Class.

You dont need a Canadian job offer to enter the Express Entry immigration pool. However, you get additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score points if you already have a Canadian job offer.

A total of 1,200 CRS points is available. Out of that, 600 points are available for a job offer or a nomination under any of Canada’s Provincial Immigrant Nomination Programs (PNPs).

A candidate’s CRS score is based on factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.

Individual applicant or a couple may get CRS points. Candidates do not need to have any experience in Canada in order to get ITA for permanent residence.

Your CRS is a numerical value, out of a possible 1,200, determined by your core human capital. This is essentially your age, work experience, educational background, ability to adapt and language skills.
