Express Entry is a system used to manage applications of people with skilled work experience who want to immigrate to Canada. The Canadian government chooses skilled immigrants as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in this country and participate in its economy.
Express Entry covers Canada’s economic immigration programs such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class. Provinces and territories to recruit candidates from the Express Entry pool according to the local labour market need through the Provincial Nominee Program. It is important to highlight that nobody can apply directly to any of these programs unless the government sends them an ITA (Invitation to Apply).
Candidates are more likely to get an ITA if they score 433 or more points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This score changes depending on government requirements. After getting the required score, the government shows you which Express Entry program you can apply to become a permanent resident. It is also important to mention that candidates who get an ITA will benefit from a fast processing time of six months or less.
Express Entry Changes
The Canadian government has made some changes to the Express Entry System. Now candidates can get additional points for having at least one brother or sister living in Canada who is a citizen or permanent resident. They must be at least 18 years old, have a parent in common and be related by blood, marriage, common-law partnership or adoption.
Moreover, candidates can also get additional points for having strong French language skills. If candidates score NCLC 7 (Niveaux de Compétence Linguistique Canadiens) or higher on all four French language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) with a score of 4 or lower in English, they will get 15 additional points. If candidates score NCLC 7 or higher on all four French language skills and CLB 5 or higher on all four English skills, they will get 30 additional points.
