Express Entry – Permanent Residence


Express Entry was launched by the Canadian Government on January 1, 2015 as a way to choose skilled immigrants as Permanent Residents to Canada based on their ability to settle in Canada successfully. Those who have one year of skilled work experience are eligible to apply to migrate to Canada under this program. It is a great opportunity for those looking to work & settle in Canada. We encourage applicants to apply immediately as we anticipate this to become one of the world’s most popular immigration programs.

Benefits of applying for an Canada PR Visa:

  • Earn in dollars.
  • Healthcare & retirement benefits.
  • Sponsor your relatives to join you in Canada.
  • Live, work and study in any Canadian province or territory.
  • Canadian passport allows you to travel visa free to a number of countries.

Express Entry is used to manage applications for Permanent Residence under three federal economic immigration programs:

(i) Federal Skilled Worker Program

(ii) Canadian Experience Class

(iii) Federal Skilled Trades Program

Provinces and territories can also recruit candidates from the Express Entry system through their Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) to meet local labor market needs. To apply through PNP candidates must choose a province or territory. The province of Quebec does not have a provincial nominee program

  • Step 1 – Potential Candidates must complete an Online Express Entry Profile
  • Step 2 – The highest-ranking candidates in the pool will be invited to apply for Permanent Residence

Candidates will be ranked against others in the pool using a point-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Points are awarded using the information in their profile. The CRS is a points-based system that we use to assess and score your profile and rank it in the Express Entry pool-

  • Skills
  • Education
  • Language ability
  • Work experience
  • Other factors

Candidates with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply. A new Express Entry draw held August 22 has issued a total of 3,750 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score in this draw was 440. This is the third draw in 2018 to feature a minimum score of 440, which is the lowest CRS score drawn in 2018. Candidates will be awarded points for:

  • A job offer, with or without LMIA, or
  • Skills and experience factors.

A candidate can get additional points for:

  • A nomination by a province or territory, or
  • A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate

A candidate can get further additional points by June 6, 2017, for:

  • Having strong French language skills, with more additional points going to candidates who also have English language skills, or
  • Having siblings in Canada

Here are some ways to improve your CRS score:

  1. Improve language scores. One of the easiest ways to raise your CRS score is to focus on the language scores.
  2. Apply through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
  3. Secure a LMIA-approved job offer.

These additional points will make a candidate rank high enough to be invited to apply at the next eligible round of invitations. If someone is invited to apply, they will have 60 days to submit an online application for Permanent Residence. Citizenship and Immigration Canada will process the majority of complete applications (meaning, those with all the necessary supporting documents) in six months or less. Candidates can stay in the pool for up to 18 months.
