Big News today!!!
Since 2021, IRCC focused on only inviting CEC candidates. IRCC did this because most of
these candidates were in Canada and were less likely to face COVID-related challenges
than immigration candidates overseas. However, IRCC paused CEC invitations in
September 2021 in order to address its application backlogs. In the meantime, IRCC has
continued to hold bi-weekly draws only inviting Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
candidates to help the provinces and territories address their labour market needs.
How Express Entry works?
First thing Candidate has to check whether they are meeting the minimum eligibility
criteria. If they meet the criteria, candidates can upload their Express Entry profile onto
IRCC’s website. Candidates receive a Comprehensive Ranking System score based on
their human capital characteristics such as age, education, language skills, and work
experience. Approximately every two weeks, IRCC invites the highest-scoring candidates
to apply for permanent residence. Those invited for permanent residence have 60 days
to submit their applications to IRCC. IRCC aims to process most applications within 6
months or less.
The Express Entry sub-category is an enhanced PNP, meaning it is
linked to the Federal Express Entry system.
Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of
Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs:
Federal Skilled Worker Program,
Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
Canadian Experience Class.
Once in the Express Entry pool of candidates, IRCC awards points to
candidates based on their human capital factors such as age, work
experience, education, language ability in English or French, and
other factors. The highest scoring candidates are then invited to
apply in an Express Entry draw.
