What is Express Entry

Express Entry (EE) is an online application system used for immigration purposes. It allows people to submit a profile, which will be ranked and the Candidates with the highest rankings will be invited to apply for permanent residency.

EE covers the following immigration programs:

Some candidates for Ontario’s Provincial Nominee Program are also selected through Express Entry.

How Does EE Choose People for PR?

Once you submit a profile, your profile will be entered into a pool (group) of all the people who have currently applied for Express Entry. Your profile will be ranked based on the number of points you have against other people in the pool. If you are at the top of the rankings, your profile will be drawn (selected) from the list of applications and you will get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence as a skilled immigrant.

Do I Qualify for EE?

You qualify for Express Entry if you meet the eligibility criteria for the Skilled Worker program, Skilled Trades program, or Canadian Experience Class. You can check your eligibility here.

How are EE profile points determined?

Your Express Entry profile will get points based on:

–          Your education level;
–          Your abilities in English and/or French (Canadas 2 official languages);
–          Your work experience and skills;
–          Your age;
–          If you have a job offer in Canada; and
–          Your spouses education, language abilities, and work experience.

Additional points are also awarded if you have completed a college or university program in Canada or if you have a provincial nomination.
