Express Entry is a new electronic management application system for immigration to Canada.It is not a new immigration program. Rather, it facilitates the selection and processing of Canada’s economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Class (formerly the Federal Skilled Worker Program), the Federal Skilled Trades Class (formerly the Federal Skilled Trades Program), the Canadian Experience Class, and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Programs. Applicants make an “expression of interest” in immigrating to Canada and, if they are eligible for at least one of the aforementioned programs, they then enter the Express Entry pool. The federal government and provincial governments, as well as Canadian employers, are then able to select candidates from this pool who will then receive an Invitation To Apply for immigration to Canada under one of the programs. Express Entry moves Canada from a first come, first served (or supply-driven) system to an invitation to apply (or demand-driven) system. Modeled on similar systems in use in Australia and New Zealand, Express Entry aims to fast track the processing of skilled immigrants deemed most likely to succeed in Canada. To apply to Express Entry, you must satisfy certain criteria. We shall discuss this below. Six selection factors: We will assess your application based on the selection factors in the federal Express Entry (FSWP) points grid. The selection factors are:
- Your skills in English and/or French (Canada’s two official languages),
- your education,
- Your work experience,
- Your age,
- Whether you have a valid job offer, and
- Your adaptability (how well you are likely to settle here).
