Express Entry is Canada’s flagship scoring based immigration system to manage applicant pool for PR applications for skilled workers.
Express Entry (EE) is a single window streamlined process for a Canadian permanent resident visa (PR) for skilled workers. This include Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Workers Class (FSWC) and Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC). At a broader level the process has 4 main steps.
Best Option for Skilled Workers
Express Entry may not be the best option for everyone. However, it is the best and fastest option for qualified skilled workers. If you are young with great English and/or French language skills, post secondary education and skilled experience it may be for you. You will need work experience in NOC 0, A or B skill classes or skilled trades. If you don’t satisfy the eligibility criteria, EE is not for you. You can explore other options like a study permit, work permit, PNPs etc.
If your score is low you can try improving it as mentioned above. Having a family member in Canada will award additional adaptability points. Most people prefer studying in Canada to increase their education level as well as to secure additional adaptability points.
