A Glance At
What is express entry?
As of January 2015, skilled foreign workers have access to Express Entry - a new electronic application management system - which applies to Canada's key economic immigration programs:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP);
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP);
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC); and,
- A portion of the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP).
Express Entry is not a new immigration program; it is a new way for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to manage economic immigration applications online.
- For prospective skilled foreign workers, Express Entry will result in faster processing times.
- Express Entry will also make it easier for candidates to secure a job before they arrive, by facilitating matches with Canadian employers.
Moving away from the old system
- First application in, first to be processed
- Average of 12-14 months or longer to process a permanent residence application
EXPRESS ENTRY System
- Candidates who are most likely to succeed in Canada, rather than the first in line, will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA)for permanent residence.
- Express Entry candidates will benefit from processing times
