Express entry is a new system implemented by the IRCC that is used to select Skilled Immigrants as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in Canada and take part in the economy. 

The express entry system was designed and implemented to help simplify and expedite the immigration process for potential candidates. To be eligible for Express Entry, candidates must meet the requirements and apply through the following programs: 

Federal Skilled Workers Program

Federal Skilled Trades Program

Canadian Experience Class

Potential candidates can apply through the Express Entry System at any time. There is no deadline to apply, and there are no caps on the number of candidates that can apply. When you apply, you are placed into a group of applications for express entry. Each candidate is then ranked against everyone else in the pool of applications based on the number of points you have accumulated. If you are placed in the top rankings within the pool, your application will be selected and invited to apply for Permanent Residence to Canada, which can then be processed within 6 months of the application. 

Each candidate is provided points based on information regarding their skills, work experience, language ability, education, as well as other details. To see if your application has a good chance of making it within the top rank of the Express Entry pool,fill out our free assessment form and one of our representatives will get back to you within 48 hours. ​
