The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three federal economic immigration programs (Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class). Express Entry candidates are given a ranking score (comprehensive ranking score – CRS) based on various factors (e.g. age, education, work experience and proficiency in English or French). The CRS determines candidate’s position in the Express Entry (EE) pool. IRCC invites the highest-ranking candidates through regular draws from the Express Entry (EE) pool. Candidates are required to submit a complete Canadian permanent residency application online to IRCC within 60 days after receiving an invitation to apply (ITA).
