Express Entry

Express Entry was launched by the Canadian Government on January 1, 2015, as a way to choose skilled immigrants as Permanent Residents to Canada based on their ability to settle in Canada successfully. Contact us today at (403) 452-9515 Ext. 100 or 1-800-932-1190 or email us directly.

Express Entry is used to manage applications for Permanent Residence under three federal economic immigration programs:

Provinces and territories can also recruit candidates from the Express Entry system through their Provincial Nominee Programs to meet local labour market needs.

Step 1 – Potential Candidates must complete an Online Express Entry Profile

Step 2 – The highest-ranking candidates in the pool will be invited to apply for Permanent Residence

Candidates will be ranked against others in the pool using a point-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System. Points are awarded using the information in their profile.

Candidates with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply. Candidates will be awarded points for:

  • a job offer, with or without LMIA, or
  • skills and experience factors.

A candidate can get additional points for:

  • a nomination by a province or territory, or
  • a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate

A candidate can get further additional points for:

  • having strong French language skills, with more additional points going to candidates who also have English language skills, or
  • having relatives in Canada

These additional points will make a candidate rank high enough to be invited to apply at the next eligible round of invitations.

FREE CALCULATOR: CHECK YOUR EXPRESS ENTRY SCORE

If someone is invited to apply, they will have 60 days to submit an online application for Permanent Residence.

IRCC will process the majority of complete applications (meaning, those with all the necessary supporting documents) in six months or less.

Candidates can stay in the pool for up to 12 months. If they do not get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence within 12 months of submitting an Express Entry profile, they may submit a new profile. If they still meet the criteria, they can re-enter the pool. This will prevent backlogs and ensure quick processing times.
