The Express Entry system is efficient and fast-acting, which makes it one of the best immigration pathways for skilled workers looking to obtain permanent residency in Canada. The system works to place skilled and qualified foreign candidates within Canadian job positions.
Candidates with the highest amount of points may be invited to fill out an application for Canadian permanent residency. These invitations are generated and issued periodically throughout the year. Candidates must submit their applications within 90 days from when the initial invitation was issued. Applicants and their dependent relatives have a 6-month processing wait time.
A candidate’s profile is stored within the Express Entry Pool for 12 months. If an invitation to apply for permanent residence is not issued during this period, candidates may re-submit their profile (provided they maintain the minimum qualification criteria).
A wide variety of Canadian employers have turned to immigrant skilled workers to meet their labour needs. This is due to a lack of availability from local candidates. These employers may provide job offers to applicants in the Express Entry Pool. Listed below are a few of the job offer categories and their corresponding awarded points:
