Express entry process

Immigration Department has launched Express Entry Process. It is not a new program but a new way to take applications. Applications under Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Trades Program and a portion of Provincial Nominee Program are now filed through Express Entry Process. Under this process, applicants are required to submit an online profile to enter a pool of applicants where all the applications are assessed on basis of comprehensive ranking system. Immigration Department will issue draws on regular basis and high ranking applicants will receive invitation to apply (ITA) for a permanent resident visa. Applicants with job offers receive additional points and have more chances to receive ITA. There is no cap on number of applications.
