Is relocating to Canada on your mind? If yes, then you must familiarize yourself with the Express Entry system. Wondering what is it? Well, a panel of experienced visa consultants from Stepwheel Outsourcing have penned down everything that you need to know about the Canada Express Entry Programme.
An electronic system, Express Entry is a three-stage immigration process that is designed to manage applications for Permanent Residence in Canada. An interested candidate needs to submit an online form for enrolment. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), a Canadian federal department, evaluates each application on the basis of the eligibility criteria specific to the programme.
The online form requires a candidate to share details related to:
- Educational qualifications
- Language abilities
- Work experience
In addition to the above-mentioned factors, there are some other factors that enableprovincial governments across Canadaas well as employers to gauge a candidate’s potential and adaptability.These may be related to spouse or common-law partner, arranged employment, or Canadian post-secondary education.Further, each online-registered application is ranked using a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
All the online applications under the Federal Program go into the Express Entry Pool. A draw system is used to pick the best candidates and a PR invitation is issued to them.
