Express Entry chooses permanent occupants based on their abilities and knowledge required in the development of our economy.
Express Entry is an administration management scheme used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in order to handle and procedure requests initiated through three of Canada’s federal economic entrance programs for experienced workers. In other words, it is a competitive entrance policy, listing all qualified applicants and encouraging the best ranking competitors to apply for Canadian permanent resident status.
Primarily, interested applicants need to submit an Express Entry form that serves as an Explanation of Interest stating the Canadian authority about their interest in converting a Canadian permanent resident. Formerly a profile has been proposed, the applicant is allowed a CRS record which ranks his/her position against the other candidates in the Express Entry provisions. Express Entry forms are effective for 12 months and can be updated with new data when required.
Almost every two weeks, the Canadian administration carries an Express Entry draw, announcing a round of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to the candidates in the competition with the greatest CRS scores. If a competitor gets an ITA, they prepare onto the next step of the process. In case, if an applicant they prepare onto the next step of the process, then he/she may need to submit a new form, presented they are still qualified to do so.
Once a candidate receives an ITA, he/she will have 60 days or 2 months to submit an electronic Application for Permanent Residence (eAPR). If this application is complete and confirms all data presented in the Express Entry form, then the candidate will be allowed permanent resident status in Canada along with family members, spouse and/or children.
