Canada recently announced the 2021-2023 immigration plan which has a strong focus on economic immigration programs, with 58% of expected immigrants being admitted under economic class programs. Express Entry is one of the economic programs under which Canada will be inviting individuals for Canadian permanent residency. Canada is expecting to welcome over 400,000 new permanent residents every year, and more than 100,000 of these new immigrants will be through the Express-Entry managed programs.
What is Express Entry?
The Express Entry system is an application system that manages the pool of candidates applying for Canadian economic immigration. The Express Entry system facilitates economic immigration through the following three programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Express Entry is a two stage process, which starts with the creation of an express entry profile. A CRS Score is calculated for candidates which determines their rank in the pool. Periodic Express Entry draws are held by IRCC to invite candidates with certain scores. If you meet the express entry draw score, you are issued an invitation to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency.
