Express Entry


Implemented in January 2015, the Express Entry program is a new system that ensures that Canada will be able to meet its current and future labour market needs, while securing long-term economic growth.

Express Entry is used to manage applications for permanent residence under these federal economic immigration programs:

* The Canadian Experience Class

Qualified candidates now stand a better chance of being selected and invited to apply for work in Canada. What is more, this new streamlined system means that processing times are greatly reduced, opening up further opportunities for applicants.

The most exciting aspect about Express Entry is that Canadian employers have access to the Express Entry pool of potential applicants. This offers the opportunity for employers to recruit and offer jobs to candidates that have the necessary skills or qualifications that they are looking for. If a candidate receives a job offer from a Canadian employer, they will then be invited to apply for Permanent Residence based on the pre-arranged offer of employment.

The different Canadian Provinces are also able to select and recruit candidates registered under Express Entry in order to meet their local labour market needs through their Provincial Nominee Programs .
