What Is Express Entry?

The Government of Canada provides invitations to eligible candidates to apply for permanent residency. This allows the Government to bring skilled workers to the country and have them take part in the economy.

Currently, there are three programs under this opportunity:

Federal Skilled Worker Program

Test 2

Federal Skilled Trades Program

Test 2

Canadian Experience Class

Test 2

Are You Eligible?

Eligibility is determined under the following categories for the FST and CEC programs:

Work Experience

To qualify for Express Entry, in this case, applicants must have work experience in their country of origin or in Canada depending on the program they’re eligible for. A worker can have held a job that was either full-time or an equal amount in part-time. We can help you determine the eligibility of certain occupations.

Individual provinces will have their own streams and requirements, giving preference to students, business people, skilled workers or semi-skilled workers.

No, the intention of express entry is to grant skilled immigrants with permanent residency in Canada.

Citizenship can be obtained after residents have been in Canada for a period of five years.

With Express Entry, Canada seeks to invite qualified, skilled immigrants who want to become permanent residents. This is a way to fill employment sectors where no Canadian workers are available. However, this doesn’t apply to every person and is just one way to obtain permanent residency. Many individuals who come here as students or temporary workers are able to stay after going through a formal application process.
