Express Entry for Skilled Canadian immigrants

Through a fast-track system, applicants who meet the immigration criteria are placed in the candidate pool。The Canadian federal government, Canadian provincial/territorial governments, and Canadian employers may select the best candidates from the talent pool。
Candidates with high scores in the talent pool will be issued with an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

The scoring factors for candidates mainly include

  • Employment contract or;

  • Nomination letter of province/territory or;

  • Skills and Experience (other factors contributing to success in Canada)。

Note: Quebec's provincial nominations will not be affected by fast track, and Quebec will choose its own skilled immigrants。

Advantages of the system

  • Prompt and effective immigration proceedings

  • Meet the requirements of the Canadian Labour market

Professional limit

  • Fast Track currently has no career limits or application caps for each class。

  • To legally enter the talent pool, fast-track candidates must have technical work experience。The position to be employed must be in the Canadian Occupational Classification NOC Class 0, CLASS A, class B occupation list。

  • The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or "employment offer letter" supported by provincial/territorial nominations provides sufficient points for candidates。

  • 候選人還必須滿足最低的語言要求(NOC 0類和A類職業:CLB7; 對于NOC B類職業:CLB5)。

Application process

  • Applicants are rated according to a Comprehensive Ranking System CRS based on their Profile and ranked in the talent pool。Applicants with high points in the talent pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent resident migration.

  • 1.      Employment offer /LMIA;
    2.      Provincial/regional nomination letter;
    3.      High scores in CRS。

  • Note: Entry into the Fast-track talent Pool does not guarantee permanent residency with the ITA。Even with an ITA, applicants must meet the requirements of Canada's Immigration and Refugee Protection Act。

  • After receiving an ITA, you can submit your application for permanent residence online within 60 days only。The ITA will explain the application process in detail。Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will process the application within six months。

Scoring criteria

  • According to the Immigration Department's Comprehensive Rapid Immigration Ranking System (CRS), the Canadian government will score applicants in the following four categories (A, B, C, D) :

A. Core/human capital factors: include age, education level, official language skills, and work experience in Canada,注意,Spouses and non-spouses in the same category receive different scores, For example, age,20-29歲,Have a spouse 100 points,110 points for no spouse。

B. Spouse or common-law partner factors: including education level, official language proficiency, and Work experience in Canada (40 points for CATEGORY B, 500 points for Category A+B)。

C. Skill Transferability factors: This category takes into account language ability, education level, Canadian work experience, foreign work experience and skilled worker's professional certificate. (Category C is up to 100 points)。

D.額外加分(最多600分):獲得加拿大僱主的工作聘用書 (Arranged employment) 或 得到省移民計劃提名(PN nomination)。

A + B + C (Max 600 points) + D (Max 600 points) = total full score 1200 points。

Immigration Canada will select applicants on the basis of their scores, not the date of submission of the application. Obviously, a score of 600 for D alone means being employed by a Canadian employer or nominated by the province, which will play an important role in the new fast-track immigration policy。

  • Overseas Education Credential Assessment (ECA)

Applicants who wish to fast-track their application to the Canadian Federal Skilled Migration category must complete overseas certification。
