The Canada immigration revolution is in full swing. Every year Canada adds about 250,000 immigrants to its populace. In fact, according to the Canadian government, by 2031 about half of Canada’s working population will probably be immigrants. And with the immigration process to the United States going through turmoil, Canada has reinforced its status as the most popular country to immigrate to. More people are moving to Canada than ever before. Canada provides many benefits to immigrants, such as the myriad of health benefits, pollution free environments, the wonderful standard of living, and almost universally friendly neighbors. It also welcomes them with open arms and gives them the opportunity to immigrate through various pathways.
Compared to most other countries, yes. Canada runs multiple Federal and state-run immigration programs to invite prospective immigrants to its shore. Programs like the Express entry program, the Quebec immigration program, the provincial nomination programs etc make the process of immigration quite streamlined.
Out of all these (among others) programs, the best way to enter Canada is undoubtedly the Express entry. Since its establishment in 2015, the express entry has helped thousands of immigration hopefuls obtain permanent residency in Canada.
As the name suggests, it is a fast track to live in Canada as a permanent resident. For a candidate to be eligible for express entry, the candidate must satisfy the criteria under one of its three programs-
1. Federal Skilled Worker Program: For the skilled worker from a foreign country looking to move to Canada. This program judges the applicant on a 100 point system where the applicant has to attain at least 67 marks to qualify. Many factors are judged in this system, such as education, work experience, age etc.
2. Federal Skilled Trades Program: FSTP is for tradespersons with experience who wish to work their trade in Canada.
3. Canadian Experience Class: Any applicant for the Canadian PR who has at least 1 year of experience of working in Canada can apply through the CEC.
Applicants are then assigned a score out of 1200 based on their credentials. This is called the Comprehensive Ranking System score or the CRS score. This score ranks the applicants for the express entry system, with the higher score getting the Invitation to apply earlier. Draws are held twice every month to determine a minimum cut off the score with applicants with scores higher than this cut off invited to apply for immigration.
Express entry is the fastest way to immigrate to Canada. On an average, it only takes about 6 to 7 months to receive Permanent residency through one of the programs under the express entry. While programs like PNP do increase the applicant’s chances of getting a PR, they tend to take about double the time. For the well-prepared applicant, Express entry provides a highway straight to their dream destination in Canada.
