Since 2015, the Express Entry program to Canada has been the main and
most prevalent way to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker.
The Express Entry program was established to facilitate foreign skilled workers relocation to Canada as a permanent resident. Canada welcomes over 100,000 Express Entry immigrants per year, and this number is only growing. In a nutshell, candidates are required to submit a profile through the IRCC website. Several steps must be taken before submitting a profile.
Language tests (IELTS or TEF)
Diploma equivalencies (WES)
Work experience (minimum 1 year)
Once your profile has been submitted, your application will be given a CRS score based on the government’s ranking system. Every two weeks or so, IRCC invites candidates with the highest CRS scores to apply for permanent residency. The profiles that receive the highest CRS scores typically depend on the candidate’s level of education, age, and language proficiency. Keep in mind that French speakers receive extra points.
Regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, Canada just recently released historic plans to welcome more than 400,000 new immigrants per year for the next 3 years through this program.
Processing times vary. A candidates express entry profile is valid for up to one year. If the candidate received an invitation to apply for permanent residency, they can expect their application to be processed within 6 months of the submission of their documents.
Getting a job offer before submitting an application for Express Entry is not mandatory. Although, having a valid job offer would increase one’s chances of being accepted as a valid job offer increases one’s CRS score by 50 or 200 additional points.
Your best bet to be eligible under Express Entry is to meet the requirements of either the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
The Express Entry program allows a candidate to include their wife, husband or common-law partner and dependent children in their application. These relatives will also receive permanent residency if you are approved at the end of the process.
