Major Pathway for direct Permanent Resident
EXPRESS ENTRY (EE)
Express Entry system allows Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to proactively assess, recruit and select immigrants who are skilled and/or possessed the qualifications under federal economic immigration programs:
Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP).
The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
The Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
The Express Entry program will also allow individual provinces and territories to use the system in order to recruit suitable candidates as part of the Provincial Nominee Programs so that labour market demands are met.
How Express Entry Works:
Step 1: Find out if you're eligible
Candidates who are eligible for the Express Entry program can complete an online profile which will include various details about themselves, including their skills, their language ability, education and previous work experience, amongst others
Step 2: Get your documents ready
Step 3: Submit your profile
After you have successfully completed your Express Entry profile, you have to submit your profile to the Express Entry pool. If you are eligible, the system gives you a score and ranks you using several factors.
Keep in mind that completing an online Express Entry profile or entering the pool doesn't guarantee that you will be invited
to apply for permanent residency.
Foreigners will wait to receive an ITA. Each draw whether it is through a PNP or Express Entry will have a minimum CRS score and those with a ranking CRS score higher than the published one, will receive an invitation. Once one has received an ITA, there is a 60 day period where you must apply and submit all the required supporting documents to a permanent resident.
Step 4: Receive an invitation and apply for permanent residence
When IRCC conducts a draw from the pool, candidates who meet the cut-off threshold are invited to apply for permanent Resident.
