Express Entry process is the most feasible and favoured process.
It is an immigration system that selects skilled workers to Canada under Federal Economic programs. Applicants submit their profile in the Express Entry Pool and also the Job Bank portal of Canada. Canadian employers and provincial governments access the best candidates and they are invited by the Federal government to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
The Federal Economic Programs are:
There are many provincial programs that an applicant may be eligible for the express entry pool.
In addition to the above federal programs, applicants may also qualify under the following provincial programs:
Federal Skilled Worker Program
Federal Skilled Workers are persons with suitable education, work experience, age and language abilities under one of Canadas official languages and who are selected under the Express Entry Immigration system to apply for permanent residence.
To qualify for admission to the Express Entry Pool as a Federal Skilled Worker, applicants must meet the following conditions:
Entering the Express Entry Pool:
An applicant with the qualifications for one of the above programs can enter the express entry pool. The express entry process comprises 4 steps.
Applicants make an expression of interest by uploading their credentials to the Express Entry Pool and to the Canadian Job Bank. Once a profile is uploaded, applicants are ranked under various factors to determine their score under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Profiles will remain in the pool for up to 12-months.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will select from the pool the highest-ranking applicants. Applicants selected will receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence under a qualifying federal or provincial program. Once an invitation has been issued, the applicant will have 60 days to submit a complete application to CIC. CIC aims to process completed applications within 6 months.
Under the CRS, applicants can score up to 600 points for core human capital factors and skill transferability factors. These factors take into account the applicant’s age, education, language proficiency, and work experience. The higher a CRS score, the higher the chances are of being issued an Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residence.
Preparing and submitting your employment profile to the Canada Job Bank. An Express Entry candidate who does not have a job offer in Canada must register with Canada’s Job Bank. This will increase your chances of success. A strong Job Bank profile will increase your chances of being matched with a Canadian company for employment. Although a job offer or provincial nomination is not required to enter the express entry pool, candidates with a qualified job offer or selected by a province will receive an additional 600 points and will significantly raise their CRS ranking score. However, CIC expects to select most applicants without a job offer or provincial nomination
Employment recruitment and individualized search consulting.
In the final stage, a candidate receives an Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residence. At this stage, candidates are required to submit all Immigration Forms, required documents, and required proofs. The proofs include a Certificate of Qualification, Experience, Police Clearances, and Medical Reports, etc.
On scrutiny, if CIC finds your application is complete and if you are found eligible you will be issued an Immigrant Visa valid through a fixed period of time. You need to arrive at a Canadian Port of Entry within the specified time and get a Confirmation of Permanent Residence in Canada.
