Overview of Express Entry programs and draws

How Express Entry Works?

The Express Entry Draw comprises a smart points-based method of choosing skilled applications called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The profile with the most points earns a place in the Express Entry Pool with higher chances of getting an invite.

Who can Apply for the Express Entry Program?

Skilled candidates can enter the Express Entry Pool through 3 programs namely

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW):This program facilitates overseas skilled workers to migrate to Canada. Candidates who meet and rank high in a number of factors including age, education, work experience, language skills, adaptability, and job offer can ace the Canadian PR by leveraging the Express Entry Program.
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Program (FST): FST is a pathway for skilled workers who have qualified experience in a skilled trade which should be listed under the National Occupational Classification (NOC).
  3. Canadian Experience Class (CEC): Aspirants with a Canadian work experience of at least 1 year in the last 3 years are eligible to apply under this particular program. Those with a higher CEC score have better chances of acing the Canadian residency.

How to Receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) via Express Entry?

Upon creating an Express Entry profile and declaring all the relevant information, an ITA is auto-issued based on the candidate’s score in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Also, despite a potential profile being eligible to apply under a number of classes, the aspirant can initiate application only under the class (Provincial Nominee Class (PNC), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSW), or Federal Skilled Trades Class(FST)) mentioned in his Invitation to Apply.

Upon earning an ITA, the candidate is supposed to complete the application for residency within 60 days from the day of receipt of the invite, being ignored on which the invite will expire and the candidate will no longer be in the Express Entry Pool.

Here’s How to Check Your CRS Score:
