Express Entry

Unless chosen under a Provincial Nominee Program or by the Province of Quebec, ALL applicants for permanent residence must first create a “profile” and register through Immigration’s Express Entry system before they may apply for permanent residence under one of the listed programs.  Like the Federal Skilled Worker system, an applicant’s suitability is based on “points”.  How “points” are assessed under Express Entry are different than under the Federal Skilled Worker program.  Under Express Entry “points” are given based on:

  • Age;
  • Education;
  • Language skills in French or English;
  • Canadian work experience;

And to a lesser extent;

  • Whether an applicant has completed a degree or diploma  in Canada, and ;
  • Whether they have a Labour Market Impact Assessment.

At regular intervals, Immigration will reach into the pool of candidates who have filed “profiles” and will issue the people with the highest “point” scores an “Invitation to Apply” for permanent residence.  The minimum pass mark of those given “Invitations to Apply” floats up and down.
