Express Entry

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) officially launched Federal Skilled Migration – Express Entry (EE) on January 1, 2015. The new policy replaced the original single system in which the occupational and quota restrictions are no longer available.

Program Advantages / Features:
  • Direct route to permanent residency
  • The applicant does not need to have a job in Canada.
  • After the applicant has been invited to apply, normally they can obtain an immigrant visa within one year
  • A comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) summarizes an applicant’s performance in different areas (including age, English / French level, educational qualifications, spouse/ common-law partner factors, Additional Points*, etc.) and concludes a total score. An applicant’s profile will be placed in the pool and compete with the counterparts for the monthly quota.

* Additional Points consist of factors including siblings living in Canada as a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, Post-secondary education in Canada, Arranged employment, and Provincial or territorial nomination.

With the new Express Entry policy, the applicant can select feasible solutions from the following categories based on their circumstances.

A friendly reminder from Goldmax Consultants:
  • The comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) ranks an applicant’s profile. Regarding the recent cut-off score, one can have a clue about his / her chance. It is highly advised that clients have an idea about the total score gained by filling in the “Assessment Form”. Familiarizing yourself with the criteria and strategy to apply for provincial nominations will increase the chance.
  • If the applicant is between 18 and 35 years old, has strong language proficiency, has at least 3 years of relevant work experience as well as possession of a master’s degree or above, federal skilled workers will have a relatively high score and success rate.
  • Education Credential Assessment (ECA) is required for overseas credentials
  • Full-time employment in Canada is defined as working 30 hours or more per week.
