What is express entry program? How it helps in immigration to Canada?

Express entry program was launched on 1st January 2015 to help in filling the gap of skilled labor in Canadian labor market. It is a point-based system where candidates first need to get 67 points in the immigration eligibility point-assessment grid. These points are given based on some of the eligibility factors like age, work experience, language proficiency, educational qualifications etc. Once candidates have cleared these eligibility criteria, then they are able to create an express profile. For creating the express profile candidates needs to submit all their credentials. Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a ranking system where these express profiles are ranked based on CRS points. Higher the profiles in the CRS, higher are the chances to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Once a candidate gets an ITA, they are able to apply for permanent residence to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

ITA’s are given to the candidates based on the express draws that are held on a regularly basis by the IRCC. These draws set a number of invitations to be sent and the CRS cut-off for that draw. Candidates who have cleared the CRS cut-offs are given the invitations to apply for permanent residence visa. Latest express draw set the cut-off at 438 CRS points.
