Become a Permanent Resident through Express Entry
Express Entry is a points-based system by the Canadian government with the purpose of helping skilled immigrants settle in Canada permanently. Applicants to the Express Entry system are drawn from a pool of Express Entry profiles. Once a candidate has been selected, they are invited to apply for permanent residence.
Applicants are chosen to receive permanent residence based on their set of skills, professional background, education and language proficiency.

How does Express Entry work?
Express Entry is a complex program with different streams to attract foreign skilled immigrants to be a part of Canada’s lifestyle and economy. To be considered for Express Entry, the applicant must first check to see if they meet the required points to be considered.
Step 1: Collect Points
Express Entry works by a point system. Applicants are awarded points according to different factors: age, level of studies, work experience, nature of work, marital status and language proficiency.
In order to be considered for Express Entry, an applicant must have at least 67 points.
Step 2: Enter the Express Entry Pool
Candidates may submit a profile to enter the Express Entry Pool once they have the minimum points required according to the program through which they are applying. The main Express Entry streams available are the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
All programs work with different point requirements and request for applicants to meet different criteria before applying. That is why having guidance and counseling from an immigration consultant can be a helpful asset.
Once a profile has been completed, it may be submitted to enter the Express Entry pool. The candidate will then receive an Express Entry profile number.
Step 3: Await for the Drawing
The Canadian government holds a drawing approximately every two weeks, typically on a Wednesday, which selects certain applicants who meet a specific CRS cut-off. All applications that are selected during that drawing receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence, which is a separate process.
Express Entry: Thorough and Complex
Although the title of this process may seem far from intimidating, Express Entry is quite complex and not just anyone can apply. It’s important for applicants to study their options well to avoid submitting an application that is ineligible.
Immigration Pros can provide the guidance and counseling necessary to ensure an Express Entry profile is submitted with all necessary requirements and that the applicant meets the required criteria before applying, giving applicants a better chance of success and a positive outcome.
It’s called Express Entry, but it’s not a quick process. Patience is key while waiting for the draws to take place. Applicants could wait anywhere from 6 to 12 months before hearing an answer.
