Canada always manages to invite thousands of new comers to become Canadian permanent residents. The government provide more than 100 programs via which aspiring immigrants can apply for Canadian permanent residency. However, there is one program that has a faster processing time than most of the Canada immigration programs, i.e., the Federal Express Entry System.
Under Express Entry, the IRCC (Immigration, Refugee, Citizenship Canada) open bi-weekly invitation rounds to invite eligible candidates to apply for Canada PR visa.
To better understand the process to apply for Canadian PR via Express Entry draw, let’s know more about it.
About Canada’s Federal Express Entry System
The Express Entry is an online application management system designed exclusively for skilled foreign nationals. It is made up of three economic immigration programs, which includes:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
The IRCC accept applications from interested applicants and move the eligible ones into the pool of candidates. To find out if you are eligible for any of the three programs, take a free profile assessment, here.
How Express Entry System Works?
Once you determine your eligibility for Canada PR via Express Entry, you may create an online profile, for which you need to meet the minimum eligibility criteria for:
- Language skills for English or French or both
- Skilled Work Experience
Once an applicant enters an Express Entry pool of candidates, he/she get a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score out of 1200, which is responsible for determining his/her ranking in the pool.
In each draw, the IRCC announce a unique minimum CRSscore requirement and based on which the invitations to apply are issued to qualifying applicants.
A CRS score is calculated based on different factors like age, language skills, skilled work experience, and more.
If you are willing to move to Canada this year, you may begin with estimating your CRS score using an online CRS calculator. It helps you prepare better for the factors where you scored less. For instance, if you have scored less on the language skills, you may take up online IELTS coaching and aim to score CLB 8 or higher to grab more CRS points on the table.To know more about Canadian immigration process and requirements, you may connect with our team of visa and immigration advisors at Canada PR Avenue on a Toll-Free No. 78-18-000-777 or may drop us your queries at email@example.com.
