About Canada s Federal Express Entry System

The Express Entry system was introduced in January 2015 by the IRCC (Immigration, Refugee, Citizenship Canada) to manage and process permanent residence applications from skilled foreign nationals.

All the interested skilled applicants create and submit their EE profiles and enter the pool of candidates based on their skills. Later on, after a detailed profile assessment, only high-scoring candidates are invited to apply for Canadian PR under any one of the three federal economic immigration programs, which include:

                     Federal Skilled Worker Program

                     Federal Skilled Trades Program

                     Canada Experience Class
