Express Entry is a popular immigration system employed by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to manage applications for permanent residency under one of the federally high skilled immigration programs. The assessment of candidates in the Express Entry system is based on a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This points-based system evaluates candidates on various factors, including:
- Age: Candidates receive points based on their age, with higher points awarded to younger individuals.
- Education: The level of education completed by the candidate is assessed and awarded points accordingly.
- Work Experience: Candidates are given points based on the number of years of skilled work experience they have, both within Canada and abroad.
- Language Proficiency: Proficiency in English and/or French proven by an approved language test and achieve specific minimum scores to earn points.
- Adaptability: Candidates are assessed for adaptability to life in Canada, such as previous study or work experience in the country, a job offer, or having a relative living in Canada.
- Spouse or Common-Law Partner Factors: When applicable, the candidate’s spouse or common-law partner’s language proficiency, education, and work experience may also be considered for additional points.
- Job Offer: Candidates with a valid job offer from a Canadian employer may receive extra points.
Candidates enter the Express Entry pool, and periodic draws are conducted by IRCC to invite candidates with the highest CRS scores to apply for permanent residency.
