Express Entry is a federal government system used to manage applications for permanent residence in Canada through certain economic immigration programs, including the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class. Express Entry allows eligible candidates to create an online profile and enter a pool of candidates. The government of Canada then uses a points-based system to rank and select the highest-scoring candidates for invitation to apply for permanent residence.
To qualify for permanent residency in Canada, you must meet certain eligibility criteria and go through a multi-step application process.
This can include an initial assessment of your qualifications and experience, an interview, and a medical examination. You may also be required to provide documentation such as a valid passport, proof of language proficiency, and educational and professional credentials. Additionally, you may need to pass a security and criminal background check.
The specific requirements for obtaining permanent residency in Canada can vary depending on the immigration category you are applying under.
