Express Entry is Canada’s immigration program for skilled workers. The program aims to process new immigrants in 6 months or less.
Before you fill out an Express Entry profile, determine if you’d eligible under one of the federal programs for skilled workers. If you qualify, go ahead and complete your profile and pay the relevant fees.
This is the first step to immigrating to Canada! Keep in mind that to complete your Express Entry, you’ll also need to be prepared to take a language test, and have your education credentials and experience assessed.
After you’ve completed these steps, your profile will be evaluated and you’ll be placed into the Express Entry pool of candidates. Being in the pool doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be invited to become a permanent resident.
The higher your Express Entry score, the better your chances of gaining an invite. This is the point at which it’s recommended that you start looking for jobs.
