Canada's Express Entry system

Canada launched the Express Entry system in Jan 2015 intending to manage applications for the 3 federal economic immigration classes namely Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Federal Skilled Trades Class. Based on several eligibility parameters such as age, level of education, skilled work experience, language ability, etc., each candidate in the Federal Express Entry is granted with a CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score out of 1200 points. In the Federal Express Entry draws are held for every couple of weeks, applicants with the good CRS scores are invited and encouraged to apply for Canada PR. Though an offer of a job from Canada is not necessary to qualify for Federal Express Entry, but those who have an employment offer will get additional points.

Almost every Canadian PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) has a minimum of one stream that is aligned with the federal Express Entry. The Federal Express Entry applicants who receive a provincial nomination by one of these streams are awarded 600 additional CRS points. It assures them with an Invitation to Apply for Canada PR in the succeeding Express Entry draw.
