Canada Express Entry System is the main source to attract skilled workers who can contribute to the economy of Canada. Candidates are given with a score based on the factors – age, qualification, work experience, English/French Language proficiency, among other factors that play an important role in the Comprehensive Ranking System. Candidates with highest-score receive invitation to apply (ITA) to apply for Canada permanent residence through regular draws that take place in Express Entry Pool.
Candidates who want to apply for Express Entry have to meet the eligibility criteria under one of the three main-economic categories of Canada – the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.
