Express Entry

What is Express Entry?

Express Entry is not a new immigration program, it is a new application mmanagementsystem.

No More Eligible Occupation List

With the opening of Express Entry it has been implied that there will no longer be a list of eligible occupations for the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Instead, anyone with experience in a NOC O, A, B category occupation could put in an application under this program.

Shorter Processing Times

Once an applicant is invited to apply for Permanent Residency, their application is expected to be processed within six months.

Educational Credential Assessments

Under the Express Entry Program only those applying under the Federal Skilled Programs will require an educational credential assessment report

Points System

Applicants will continue to be assessed based on their scores in a variety of categories including skills, work experience, education and language ability.

Documents Required

The required documents for the various programs will remain essentially the same, although applicants will be required to submit all of their required documents within sixty (60) days of being invited to apply for Permanent Residence or risk losing their invitation.

Job Offers Not Mandatory

While those who have a valid job offer from a Canadian Employer will be invited to apply for Permanent Residence, those who have the highest score in their category may also be invited to apply for Permanent Residency.

Existing Programs Staying Open

Under the new Express Entry Program the following immigration categories will still remain open:

  • Federal Skilled Worker
  • Federal Skilled Trades
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Provincial Nominee Programs

The selection process for the above mentioned categories may change as well as the applicable points system. We will notify you once these changes have been announced prior to the Express Entry launch in January of 2015.
