Everything you need to know to obtain residence in Canada through the express entry program.

As a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant licensed by the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultant (CICC), I receive emails and WhatsApp messages daily about the fast track to immigrate to Canada.

What is Express Entry?

It is an online system that Immigration Canada uses to handle worker immigration applications to Canada.

Includes the following immigration programs:

  1. Canadian experience

  2. Skilled workers

  3. Trade workers

Express entry was created in 1967, but over time, it has adapted to the demand of workers in the Canadian labor market.

Selection factors

If you meet all the minimum requirements, Canada will assess your eligibility for the Federal Skilled Worker Program based on the following:

  • age

  • education

  • work experience

  • whether you have a valid job offer

  • English or French language skills

  • adaptability

Based on your marks for each of the six factors, Canada will assign you an overall score of 100.

The current pass mark is 67 points.

You will be assessed again once your profile is in the Express Entry pool through the CRS, a points-based system that Canada implemented to evaluate and rank your profile in the Express Entry pool.

It’s used to assess your:

  • skills

  • education

  • language ability

  • work experience

  • other factors

To get an invitation to apply, your CRS score must be above the minimum points score of your round of invitations (cut-off scores may vary each round).

How does the express entry system benefit me?

The Canadian government realized that the express entry system was not helping Canadian employers fill job vacancies. In June 2022, it changed the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act to allow the selection of immigrants with specific work experience to fill gaps in the labor market.

After a year of work, in June 2023, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser declared that express entry invitations would also be prioritized:

  1. Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)

  2. Health area professionals

  3. Trade workers, such as carpenters, plumbers, construction

  4. Transportation

  5. Agriculture and agri-food
