Canada Express Entry Program

Canada Express Entry Step by Step Process to Get PR Visa in Canada? 

Canada- the maple leaf country- is an excellent economy offering great opportunities to skilled individuals. Canada offers you a great environment to flourish in both professional and personal sphere. To permanently immigrate to Canada, the Canadian government has one federal system called Express Entry System.

Express Entry Program took birth in the year 2015. The program was introduced by Canada so that a more systematic way of immigration could be worked upon. Before introduction of the Express Entry System, there used to be delayed visas, more processing time and first-come-first-served basis of selection. However, with the popular move of bringing Express Entry into picture, processing time has been cut down to 6-8 months. Moreover, candidates are now selected on the basis of a point system rather than on first-come-first-served basis.

The point system of Express Entry considers an individual’s personal credentials such as age, educational qualification, work experience and English language skills and thereon calculates score of that individual. Based on this score, chances of an individual’s selection is determined.

Express Entry further has three streams namely,

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  3. Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • While FSWP is for skilled individuals with relevant level of education and experience, FSTP is for semi-skilled/ unskilled people who are willing to take up trade Jobs in Canada.
  • CEC on the other side is for those skilled individuals who are having a prior experience in Canada on any temporary visa type (study visa, work permit, etc.)

 How to apply for Canada Permanent Resident Visa?
