Understanding the Express Entry

On January 2015 Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will open a new electronic system to manage permanent resident Visa applications for some of their economic programs called the "Express Entry".

Through this program, the government of Canada will be able to actively recruit, assess and select new immigrants.

This program will be applicable to those who will apply for the Federal Skilled Worker program, the Federal Skilled Trades program, the Canadian Experience Class and some of the Provincial Nominee program.

There are two steps in applying for the Express Entry.

1) Potential candidates complete an online Express Entry profile  

Potential candidates must make an online Express Entry profile where they will provide information about their skills, work experience, language ability, education and other details about themselves. Those who will qualify in the criteria set, will be placed in a pool of candidates. Candidates who apply will be assessed and ranked against each other.  Only those who are ranked the highest-who can prove that they will become economically stable in Canada and those with qualified offers of employment or those nominated under the participating Provincial Nominee programs will be given an invitation to apply for Permanent Resident Visa in Canada.

If an applicant does not have a valid job offer or a nomination from a particular province or territory, he or she can register in the Government of Canada's Job Bank which will connect him or her to eligible Canadian Employer.
