Canada’s Express Entry System

Canada Express Entry is a fast-track system for immigration for highly skilled workers and students. The skills and abilities of a candidate are assessed based on a point-based system known as the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) where the Canadian government assesses the applicants and awards scores. Canadian employers and provincial governments across Canada have access to the profiles. The best candidates are invited by the Federal government to apply for Canadian permanent residence. The system targets and gives permanent residency status to applicants who can contribute to the economic growth of Canada.
