Express Entry is an online Canadian immigration system designed to manage the application of skilled workers who want to become permanent residents in Canada.

A candidate can submit an expression of interest or profile to Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Each candidate is assigned a score out of 1,200. The top ranked candidates are then selected by IRCC based on their score to apply to become a permanent resident.

Selection factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Your skilled work experience
  • Your age
  • Your language ability
  • Your education
  • Your work experience
  • Your Canadian job offer

There are three (3) categories within the Express Entry program:
