Canada introduced the Express Entry system in 2015. This program facilitates faster processing of applications for various federal economic immigration programs. The Federal Skilled Trades, Federal Skilled Worker, and the Canadian Experience Class are the main programs under the Express Entry program and are very competitive. Immigration candidates are ranked against each other, and only the highest-ranking individuals receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in Canada.

EXPRESS ENTRY:

Canada’s Express Entry system consists of a 2-step process. First, you create an Express Entry profile, providing information on your education, work experience, language, and other skills. Once you submit your profile, you will be placed in a pool of candidates who are compared to each other. Candidates are ranked through the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), and top-ranking candidates are regularly invited to apply for permanent residence. Our Express Entry score calculator can help you determine how many points you would likely receive. The Express Entry CRS score allows you to earn up-to 600 points as core points, and up-to an extra 600 points as additional points. Therefore, you can receive a total of 1,200 points as your Express Entry score.

INVITATION TO APPLY (ITA):

The second step consists of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA), after which you have 60 days to submit an online application and pay the processing fees for permanent residence. IRCC holds an Express Entry draw every few weeks, inviting candidates to submit an application for permanent residency. The highest scoring candidates in the pool are issued an ITA. The Express Entry processing time takes an average of six months or less once an application is complete.

The CRS score

To effectively rank immigration candidates, the government created a merit-based points system that assigns a score to all candidates in the Express Entry pool. This point system is known as CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). The score assigned to the candidates is referred to as the CRS score.

The points a candidate gets from the CRS include a comprehensive set of a maximum of 600 and a set of extra points 600 (maximum). Therefore, your total score will be calculated out of 1,200.

The core points: a maximum of 600

  • Skills and experience factors
  • Common-law partner or spouse factors such as their education level and language skills
  • Skills transferability including work experience and education

Additional points: A maximum of 600

  • Canadian work experience, certificates, diplomas, or degrees
  • A legitimate job offer
  • Excellent French language skills
  • A sister or brother living in Canada who is a permanent resident or citizen of Canada
  • A nomination from a Canadian territory or province

The sum of your core points and extra points is your total CRS score.
