Express Entry

Express Entry offers express entry to qualified, skilled immigrants who want to become Canadian permanent residents to fill jobs where no Canadian workers are available.

This is one of the fastest and easiest routes for immigrants looking for a new life in Canada. The Express Entry immigration program awards point to professionals based on: 

  - Skills 
  - Experience
  - Employment Status in Canada

The higher your score, the more likely you are to receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence (PR).

Who is eligible for Express Entry?

Approximately every two weeks, the Canadian government conducts an Express Entry draw. Each draw has a CRS cut-off score, which represents the CRS score of the lowest-ranking candidate to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Once a candidate receives an ITA, they are given 60 days to complete and submit an official electronic Application for Permanent Residence (eAPR).
