Express Entry

Canada admits a large number of educated people from around the world as permanent residents annually.

The express Entry is an online application management system which was established in January 2015. The system is designed to select the best skilled workers who want to immigrate permanently to Canada.

Potential candidates express their interest in immigrating to Canada by first completing a profile online that is then pre-assessed to see if they meet criteria of one of the three below immigration programs.

- Federal Skilled Worker Program

- Federal Skilled Trades Program

- Canadian Experience Class,


- a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program

Using the created profile information, candidates are given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. They are then placed in the Express Entry pool and ranked relative to each other based on their CRS scores. Every 2 weeks (roughly) a draw is conducted and

Only the candidates with top scores get an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence.

The lowest CRS points which received ITA was at 413 which was drawn on May 31, 2017 for the federal skilled worker and the lowest CRS points so far which received ITA for the Trade Skilled program was 288 which was drawn on May 30, 2018.
