General information about the Express Entry system in Canada

Do you want to move to Canada? You will most likely need to register with Express Entry.

Express Entry is a system for selecting skilled immigrants as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in Canada and participate in the Canadian economy.

Potential candidates apply online in the Express Entry system, where they document their eligibility (based on language skills, education, job, etc.). Once a candidate fills out a profile, they are entered into the pool. Winners are determined based on their score.

  • education;
  • other factors.

Next, the candidates with the highest scores are placed in pool.
