Eligible candidates are invited to apply for Canadian Permanent resident status. Candidates are ranked based on a number of factors or entry eligibility such as:

  • Age 
  • Language proficiency (French and/ or English) 
  • Educational experience 
  • Canadian work experience, and 
  • Foreign work experience. 


What Is Express Entry Canada?

This is a highly competitive application management system used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to process applications through any of the three federal economic immigration programs for skilled workers namely:

Under Express Entry, individuals and families can achieve their dreams of becoming of permanent residents in Canada within a few months. 


Is Express Entry same as PR?

Express Entry is an online application system under which individuals and families can apply for permanent residence under any of the three federal programs. While creating your online Express Entry profile, your information will be used to determine both your Express Entry Points and eligibility on any of those three programs. 

For example, the system will require you to state how much money you will bring to Canada, because the federal skilled workers program requires that some of the applicants must have sufficient funds to settle in Canada. 

Regardless of your excellent English skills and advanced education, if you have less than the required funds, you won’t be eligible for the federal skilled workers program.

 This is basically the reason why most people do not qualify into the Express Entry Pool. Thus, you will enter into the pool as long as you meet the requirement for any of the three immigration systems for permanent residence. 

Permanent residence is not Express Entry. A permanent resident is a non- Canadian citizen, who has received permanent resident status by relocating to Canada. Someone who lives and works in Canada temporarily like a foreign worker or student is not a permanent resident.  


How Long The Express Entry Takes? 

From submission of Express Entry form to the issuance of PR visa, can take a minimum of six months to process. Furthermore, it is important to note that your Express Entry Profile will remain valid in the pool for about 12 months.

 If you did not receive any invitation to apply after 12 months, you are invited to resubmit your profile and remain active in the pool. 

Upon the issuance of your invitation to apply (ITA), you will be required to provide the requested application within 60 days. Upon the completion and submission of your application, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada will process your application in about six months.

For eligible candidates who receive an invitation to apply, and quickly submit their completed application, the entire process may take less than six months. It is also important to note that the following variables may extend the timeline:

  • While some eligible candidates are invited to apply after entering the Express Entry Pool, others depending on their CRS score may receive an invitation to apply after a few months or not at all. 
  • Some invited candidates may be available to apply for immigration to Canada immediately after they were invited, while others may apply after the 60 days allotted.
  • Although IRCC aims at processing every application within six months, some applications may take longer, while decisions on other applications may take six months or less.
