Canada Express Entry

Express Entry is an online system for managing applications for immigration under the three federal economic immigration programs of Canada, which are Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades (FST), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). To receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada under Express Entry, a candidate must first create an Express Entry profile. Then they will be assessed on the basis of various human capital factors and awarded a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. Those with the highest score will be invited to apply for permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw. Normally, Express Entry draws are held in every two weeks. Candidates with a provincial nomination will have 600 additional CRS score points added to their total CRS score. It gives them a better chance to get an Express Entry invitation. Also, PNP-specific Express Entry draws also target them exclusively.
