The Express Entry candidates are assessed and ranked on the basis of CRS score, which is awarded based on various human capital factors such as age, education qualification, work experience, language proficiency etc. The Express Entry system of Canada manages applications for immigration through the three major federal economic immigration programs of Canada, which are Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. Ever since Canada introduced certain restrictive measures in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak, the Express Entry draws have been targeting Canadian Experience Class candidates and provincial nominees.
