ย Major Pathway for direct Permanent Resident


Express Entry system allows Citizenship and Immigrationย Canada (CIC) to proactively assess, recruit and selectย immigrants who are skilled and/or possessed theย  qualificationsย  under federal economic immigrationย  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 provincesย and territories to use the system in order to recruit suitableย candidates as part of the Provincial Nominee Programs soย 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 detailsย about themselves, including their skills, their language ability,ย 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 Entryย profile, you have to submit your profile to the Express Entryย pool. If you are eligible, the system gives you a score and ranksย you using several factors.

Keep in mind that completing an online Express Entry profileย 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 itย is through a PNP or Express Entry will have a minimum CRSย score and those with a ranking CRS score higher than theย published one, will receive an invitation. Once one hasย  receivedย an ITA, there is a 60 day period where you must apply andย submit all the required supporting documentsย ย toย  aย permanent resident.

Step 4: Receive an invitation and apply for permanentย residence

When IRCC conducts a draw from the pool, candidates whoย meet the cut-off threshold are invited to apply for permanent Resident.
