About Express Entry
Express Entry is a points-based application management system. It’s used by the federal government to manage applications for immigration. These applications are filed for 3 federal high-skilled immigration programs namely CEC, FSTP, and FSWP.
The applicants to Express Entry have their profiles added to a candidate pool. It’s accessible to both federal and provincial governments. Every candidate profile is ranked by CRS with scores assigned. Factors like age, education, work experience, and skills in Canada’s official language are considered to decide the scores.
Provincial governments choose and nominate Express Entry candidates through PNP draws. They automatically add 600 extra points to their original CRS scores. This way, the candidates get a higher score. The high score will increase their chances to get an ITA to the near surety in a forthcoming federal immigration draw.
For a provincial nomination, these candidates need to create an EOI profile with the provincial PNP involved. The EOI profiles are given scores on the province’s unique points grid.
The highest-scoring Express Entry candidates are invited by IRCC. They are invited to apply for Canada PR when they take part in regular invitation rounds. Those who are invited can officially apply for Canada immigration.
