1. The Express Entry System

The Express Entry System was initiated in 2015 to speed up and simplify the Candian immigration process for skilled foreign applicants who want to live and work in Canada. The great thing about the Express Entry system is that you don’t require a job offer to apply, not to mention that the processing time has now been reduced to approximately 4-6 months, making it one of the easiest and quickest ways to immigrate to Canada. Candidates can apply under one of 3 Federal Immigration Programs:

All eligible visa applicants are scored according to factors such as their age, work experience and educational qualifications according to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). They are then entered into a draw pool and ranked against other applicants. Express Entry draws usually occur every 2 weeks, from which the highest-scoring applicants are chosen by the Canadian government to apply for permanent residency.
