About Express Entry System

Express Entry is an application management system designed by the IRCC to accept, manage and process permanent residence applications from skilled foreign workers. The EE system manages applications under the following federal economic-class immigration programs:

·         Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)

·         Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

·         Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

To enter the candidates' pool, individuals must meet the minimum eligibility criteria of any one of the three programs mentioned above. Upon entering the pool, the IRCC award score and a rank to all the candidates using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). It is a highly competitive, points-based selection system. The IRCC select only the highest-ranking candidates from the pool and invite them to apply for a Canada PR visa.
