Express Entry System Immigration

Canada’s Express Entry system is a point-based immigration system. It is the best economic-class pathway for immigrants. It has fast processing and is also presumed to be “easy” in getting an invitation to apply for permanent residence.

The Express Entry system uses a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and awards points based on a candidate’s human capital, factors like age, language ability in English or French, work experience, and education level. The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) assess these aspects and allot points.

The immigration is undertaken after consideration of immigration priorities, the labor market, and also other factors. Recently Canada announced more points for French-speaking Express Entry candidates to promote more French immigration outside of Quebec.

The three subcategories of the Express entry are - Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.

Provincial Nominee Programs Immigration

Canadian provinces have a PNP system that is aligned with Express Entry; they are also called “enhanced PNPs.” Quebec province has its own immigration system, and there is also Nunavut, which does not have a PNP.

The rest of all provinces have enhanced PNPs and also “base PNPs,” and they operate independently from Express Entry. These base PNPs are reserved for people with established connections in the province or territory. It could be work experience, education, or even family ties. There is also a way to apply to these streams directly, and you can also have a profile in the Express Entry system.

Enhanced PNPs invite Express Entry candidates with the Expression of Interest, and they have qualities that are beneficial to the regional labor market. It could be work experience in an in-demand occupation,

If an applicant gets the nomination through an enhanced program, an additional 600 CRS points score is added to the Express Entry score, which guarantees an ITA in the next Express Entry draw.
