Canada’s Express Entry system is the new selection process for Immigration to Canada, designed to select skilled workers for immigration to Canada. The Express Entry system allows skilled workers to apply for permanent residence and a possibility of immigrating to Canada in as little as 6 months. Each applicant is assessed according to their age, level of education and work experience. Employers will then be able to select new employees from a pool of candidates.
Express Entry manages applications for Canada Permanent Residence under the following Federal Economic Immigration programs;
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FST)
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
- Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP)
Qualified candidates now stand a better chance of being selected and invited to apply for work in Canada. This new streamlined system means that processing times are greatly reduced.
