Canada Express Entry

The Express Entry system was introduced by Canada in January 2015 with an aim to streamline applications for immigration under the federal economic immigration programs, which are the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)   and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). The candidates are assessed and ranked on the basis of the CRS score and the highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply for permanent residence in the Express Entry draws that are conducted regularly. Though a job offer from a Canadian employer is not mandatory to qualify under the Express Entry system, those who have one gets additional CRS score points. The applications for Canada permanent residence submitted under the Express Entry system may get processed within as early as six months.
