Immigrate through Canada Express Entry

Before the Express Entry System was introduced in Canada, immigrants were invited on a “first come, first served” basis. Then, in 2015, Canada launched the Express Entry system that made immigration possible on the basis of eligibility rather than the stacking order.

There are 2 major factors that make Express Entry a smooth and flexible system for economic immigration:

  • The Comprehensive Ranking System ranks immigration candidates on the basis of factors like age, education, work experience, and proficiency in English/French.
  • The adaptability of rounds of invitation for immigration whereby specific and precise requirements of federal or provincial labor markets can be met by customizing the eligibility criteria of candidates.
How it works

Check out whether you are eligible

There are 2 ways in which you can figure whether you have Canada PR eligibility which starts with your eligibility to enter the Express Entry system.

  • Try answering the questions that will help you find out whether you meet the minimum immigration requirements
  • Educate yourself on the details of requirements for each immigration program

Get all the necessary documents ready for submission

Among the documents necessary for applying to Express Entry are essential ones like language test results.

Documents required for submitting profile include:

  • Proof of funds
  • Language test results
  • A passport/travel document
  • A proof of education done in Canada or a report of Educational Credential Assessment. The latter is necessary if:
    • The candidate is applying via FSWP, or
    • The candidate wants to earn points for the education you had outside Canada
  • A job offer in writing from a Canadian employer (if available)
