Express  Entry Program

Immigration Refugee Citizenship Canada has developed Employer Job Offer streams, Human Capital Priorities and Express Entry Program Streams. It is the Express Entry Program that is designed to give the first screening and approval of applications from foreign nationals who are able to apply to enter Canada through the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and the Canadian Experience Class programs.

You can register an IRCC Express Entry profile online to have your adaptability rated on the IRCC’s Comprehensive Ranking System. Your eligibility is based on criteria including your work experience, skill set, education and training, the level of you language skills, age and other factors. You must score a minimum of 65 on the Express Entry assessment grid to be entered into the Express Entry pool of candidates and have your Express Entry I.D. number.

Once in the pool of the Express Entry Program, you can be fast tracked into possibly being selected by one of the Provincial Nominee Program officers who is able to access your profile from the pool. They will assess your suitability to settle in the province permanently, establishing that you have sufficient funds to move, find a home get started on contributing to the province on a community basis, while filling a position with your skills that can’t be filled by a Canadian or permanent resident with similar education, training, licensing, work experience, language skills, etc.

The number of programs and criteria for each program is different for each province. If a particular province that you have requested to settle in, by submitting a ‘letter of expression’ online, finds that you will be asset to the province’s workforce and community by meeting the adaptability criteria, the Provincial Nominee Program may nominate you to have the applications of you, and your immediate family members, submitted to be entered into the pool of successful candidates applying for permanent resident status in Canada. The Federal government is the final decision in deciding who may become a Canadian citizen and not the provinces.

Let the experts at 123Visa help you make sure that you increase your chances of nomination by scoring as well as you can on the adaptability grid and showing every detail that will garner you points when you submit your application.

“Comprehensive Ranking System formula”

All Express Entry candidates are given a score out of 1,200, based on the four parts of the Comprehensive Ranking System formula:

  • Skills and experience factors (that we know are key to economic success for immigrants once in Canada)
  • Spouse or common-law partner factors (such as their language skills and education – these are known to result in better economic success for both the spouse or common-law partner and the candidate)
  • Skills transferability (including education and work experience – factors that when combined, result in better chances of being employed, and higher earnings)
  • Additional points for those with a nomination from a province or territory, a valid job offer or a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate.
A. Single candidates B. Candidates spouses or common-law partners that will come with them to Canada
