How Federal Express Entry System?

The Express Entry system is designed with an objective to electronically streamline permanent residence applications from skilled overseas applicants. Applicants who create an online EE account enter the pool of candidates under following economic immigration programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program?
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program?
  • Canada Experience Class?

Changes Introduced in Express Entry System

With the approval of Bill C-19 in Parliament in June, IRCC is now inviting Express Entry candidates based on their specific work experience, language abilities, and education, instead of the current system where ITAs are issued solely based on an applicant s CRS scores.

For instance, IRCC may conduct a round of invitations only for French-speakers, or to applicants with work experience in any particular in-demand occupation.
