CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY

The Canadian Express Entry program was devised in January 2015. This system is implemented to help facilitate some of the immigration programs, such as: Federal Skilled Worker, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades.

Provinces and Territories can also recruit candidates from the Express Entry pool to meet their local immigration needs.

Here is a brief description of how it functions: Qualified applicants, who wish to immigrate to Canada can formally express their interest in becoming a permanent resident under one of the designated categories, by creating an Express Entry Profile. Then, the applicants will be scored according to the program's point-based Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Their total score will determine the applicant’s rank within the pool. Applicants with the highest scores will be invited to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency on an expedited basis.

Some of the metrics of ranking are economic success, education, skills, work experience, language abilities, and a variety of other elements. Canadian employers can directly recruit from the Express Entry pool. Needless to say, a job offer can boost the overall ranking of the prospective applicants.

COME TO CANADA

The name Canada was coined by a Native Tribe known as the St. Lawrence Iroquoian. They used the word “Kanata,” which means "village" or "settlement". Indeed, Canada is a truly diverse village: A Beautiful Great Big Global Village!
