Express Entry is a system that lets Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invite and manage people with skilled work experience to apply and immigrate to Canada. Introduced in January 2015, the Express Entry System speeds up the processing of permanent residency applications to six (6) months or less. At Dastur Immigration Services, we help you navigate through this system and gain permanent residence in Canada if you’re an eligible skilled worker.
Skilled workers can apply for Canadian Permanent Residency and immigrate if they meet the requirements of either Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), or Federal Skilled Trades (FST) programs. If you want to work and settle in Canada permanently, we will help you:
An applicant is assessed on several factors and issued a comprehensive ranking system (CRS) on the following criteria:
The latest CRS cut-off score is 742. This is the recent draw in 2021. Anyone with this score or higher will receive an invitation to apply for Express Entry.
In general, to be eligible to apply to Express Entry as a skilled worker, you must be under 30 years old and have university or college degrees with skilled work experience and moderate proficiency in English. You must have at least three years of skilled work experience. Other factors that boost the CRS score are bilingualism in French and English, a Master’s degree or PhD education, Canadian work or educational experience, an employment offer from a Canadian company, and a nomination from a provincial nominee program.
