Express Entry System

Launched by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) way back in the year 2015, federal Express Entry System is today most popular online, point-based program to apply for Permanent Resident (PR) Visa in Canada. 

In last few months, government of Canada is consistently taking measures to ease the immigration system and welcome more and more new immigrants in the country. Improved immigration system, reduction of application backlog and easing the immigration rules are few such steps.

The EE system is in the process of normalcy after global pandemic, and constant all-program Express Entry System draws and falling CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score requirement are some of the indications of EE system is well on track of its earlier routine. Hence, if you are an aspirant of Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) Visa, this is the perfect time to apply for the same.
