What is “Express Entry” to Canada?
The points-based Express Entry Canadian immigration system was launched in 2015, as a faster and more efficient way to select the most qualified skilled foreign workers to be approved for a Permanent Resident Visa to Canada.
An Express Entry profile containing a skilled foreign worker relevant details is submitted online, and if the Canadian immigration officials assess that an applicant seems to meet the criteria for one of the “economic immigration” programs that qualify for Express Entry, the applicant’s file may then be placed in the pool of potential candidates.
An Invitation to Apply may be issued to candidates who get a qualifying job offer, receive a provincial nomination, or are among the highest-scoring candidates in the pool.
