The Express Entry system is Canada’s main source of skilled foreign workers. It manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration categories – the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
Eligible candidates under these categories are entered into the Express Entry pool, where they are ranked based on their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores.
A candidate’s CRS score is based on factors that include age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French, among others.
A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for the Express Entry pool.
The highest-ranked candidates are issued invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence, known as ITAs, through regular draws from the pool, which typically happen every two weeks.
