Express Entry is used to manage applications for permanent residence under these federal economic immigration programs:

  • The Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • The Federal Skilled Trades Program
  • The Canadian Experience Class

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

Potential candidates will complete an online Express Entry profile. This is a secure form that they will use to provide information about their:

»Work experience
»Language ability
»Other details that will help us assess them.

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
»A nomination from a province or territory, and/or
»Skills and experience factors.
»A candidate can get additional points for:
A job offer supported by a Labor Market Impact Assessment
A nomination by a province or territory

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