The Express Entry system
Express Entry is a new system designed by CIC to make Canada immigration system more responsive and faster. Effective 1 January 2015, Canada will assess all permanent resident applications under Express Entry system. Beginning this year, Canada evaluates applications for Federal Skilled Trades Programme (FSTP), Federal Skilled Worker Programme (FSWP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) through express entry system.
How to get into Express entry pool?
Under Express entry system, potential applicants must create express entry profile. Candidate’s profile will be evaluated based on certain factors like age, human capital, work experience and language ability. The ranking system is termed as comprehensive ranking system and applicants who qualify under this points system and who meet eligibility criteria will be placed in Express Entry pool. Candidates can secure 1200 points under points base system. Only the highest ranking candidates will be offered a job or will be nominated by a Canadian province. Applicants who were invited can only apply for any of the economic federation programs.
There is no occupation list under express entry system and there is no cap on the acceptance of number of applicants into the pool. There is no time frame to create an express entry profile, which means that applicants can create at any time. Also, applicants can be on list for a period of one year and applicants with no job offer can promote themselves either through job bank and private job boards. This is a better chance for people who wish to immigrate to Canada at a faster pace.
