In Canada, this process is known as “Express Entry” (EE).
Canada launched Express Entry in 2015 to expedite the permanent residency application process for qualified employees who wish to make Canada their permanent home. As of January 8th, 2019, 323,740 applicants had received permanent residency invitations via Express Entry.
Even though Canada has over 60 different immigration categories, the most common route to permanent residency is through Express Entry. It’s a way for people from other countries to move to Canada permanently through one of three different routes. It’s a point system for meeting specific skill and financial benchmarks.
The federal nature of Express Entry sets it apart from provincial and other programs.
The variations between the various modules can be seen by clicking on the relevant links above.

It sounds like someone is wondering how they can tell which position is best for them. As previously stated, Federal Skilled Worker programs are available to those who do not have Canadian work experience or training in one of the designated skilled TRADES (FSW).
Many people from OUTSIDE of Canada apply for FSW. Then that’s what we ought to be thinking about.
Skilled Immigrant Programs by Canadian Provinces is something else you should look at.
There are 6 criteria used to determine qualification for the Federal Skilled Worker program.
– Fluency in English and French
Teaching and Learning
Prearranged Work Arrangements
Ability to Change Direction Quickly
With a score of 67 out of 100, you might make the cut. Learn more at http://bit.ly/2Ndxe0N.
notes That in order to determine your level of English proficiency, you must take either the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or the Test of English for Foreign Students (TEF/TCF) (French). Here’s a bit more info: bit.ly/39Vf3o0. You can have any organization review your degree if it was earned outside of Canada by clicking here: bit.ly/2BN5syV.
Look for a localized language test that can be taken. For instance, CELPIP exams are restricted to the following countries: Canada, the United States, China, India, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates. TEF and TCF are French tests. Because of Canada’s policy of official bilingualism, test takers who demonstrate proficiency in both official languages will be given preference.
You CANNOT create an Express Entry profile until you have taken a language exam and the Education Credential Assessment (ECA).
It makes no difference which one you complete first, while your ECA may take longer to finish and is valid for 5 years, whereas language tests are valid for only 2.
The more points you have for Express Entry, the faster you can enter the country (except for age). Do your best to achieve the highest possible score on the language examination.
I recommend getting a score of 9 or above on the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) version of the language test.

The ECA just requires you to consider your highest level of education (i.e if you have a Masters or PhD). Only the highest score will be recorded. Two or more certifications (such as a BSc and a Diploma) can be evaluated for higher marks.

Extra information regarding Education Credential Assessment (ECA) is provided for advanced degrees.
You get the same number of points for a professional degree as for a Master’s. Make sure you’re getting evaluated by the right group.
The Assessment of Educational Qualifications (details in the image below) (ECA)
You also need to have at least a year of full-time work experience (or equivalent in part-time). Skills levels required include 0 for entry-level, 1 for intermediate, and 2 for advanced levels in the Canadian National Occupational Classification (NOC). If it isn’t, then unfortunately, neither is your job in Canada.

Visit bit.ly/2tNPaWE to find out how well you ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) by entering your ECA score, language result(s), and other data.
Then, create your profile at bit.ly/2EGIueb; if your CRS score there doesn’t match what was calculated, something is wrong. The problem needs to be located and fixed.
Consider these five certain strategies for a trip to Canada before you book anything.
You are probably aware that Express Entry has a point system. Your CRS Score and profile information will be compared to those of other applicants. When it is time to conduct a draw, a CRS cutoff will be established, and individuals who are eligible according to the cutoff will be extended an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
The Express Entry selection process is not a lottery but rather a selection of the highest-ranked applicants on a regular basis (usually every other week).
It’s not a hard and fast limit, and it can move up or down. In 2020’s first draw, 473 participants were used to invite 3,400 people.
Below, I’ve listed a few of my past drawings.
The annual January draws for Canada Express Entry
CRS 886, Invitations 779, 31 January 2015
As of January 6, 2016, there have been 461 CRS reports and 1,463 invitations issued.
January 4, 2017: 468 CRS reports, 2,902 invitations sent
10 January 2018 | 446 CRS | 2,750 Invitations
On January 10th, 2019, 449 CRS members and 3,900 invited guests will be attending.
Many individuals have trouble with the CRS cut-off when traveling up or down. In 2017, the minimum CRS score required to be eligible for immigration was 413. Things are different now. This is the “perfect” persona. Do not worry if you do not own it; your score can still be improved upon.
However, due to its increased popularity, the Express Entry program is now extremely competitive and has a high threshold for acceptance. This means that a stellar profile is essential.

The CRS score can be improved in numerous ways. However, there is no magic bullet for improving your CRS score.
Similarly to how much it may cost (which may vary from person to person), what each candidate needs to do to improve their CRS score may also vary.
I’ll outline a few broad approaches below. You just have to figure out what works best for you.
To improve your Express Entry CRS scores, you can do things like
– Nomination by Province (gives up to 600 points)

Additional Degree (Diploma/if Master’s you only have a BSc) and Eligible Job Offer in Canada
A longer history of employment (if less than 3 years)
