NEW: Canada Express Entry

For a short period of time only, Canada now allows skilled immigrants to become permanent residents of Canada almost instantly.

Details

Immigrants are now chosen as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in Canada and take part in the economy. There is a new system to manage how people with skilled work experience apply to immigrate to Canada. It is called Express Entry.

Canada Express Entry is used to manage applications for permanent residence under these federal economic immigration programs:

Federal Skilled Worker Program

Federal Skilled Trades Program

Canadian Experience Class

Step 1) Potential candidates complete an online Express Entry profile

Fill out the forms with all your information (work experience, education, age, spousal information, etc.). At this point you do not have to provide supporting documents. We will submit your profile, if accepted it will be in the Express Entry pool for up to 1 year. We ensure everything is filed accurately in order to avoid any future problems for misrepresentation, errors or omissions.

Step 2) The highest-ranking candidates in the pool will be invited to apply for permanent residence

Immigration Canada chooses the best profiles according to a points system and other factors. If you are invited to apply, you will have only 90 days to submit your Permanent Residence Application online. All the supporting documents must be submitted and they must be consistent with the forms that you submitted in step 1. Since you only have 90 days to submit this, we have set up a priority system to deal with express entry cases. Citizenship and Immigration Canada will process the majority of complete applications in six months or less.
