Express Entry System

Express entry Canada can be defined as a fast track immigration pathway to gain permanent residency for skilled professionals. Under this system applicants are ranked against one another based on the selection factors of age, work experience, educational qualifications, proficiency in English or French language, as well as additional factors like arranged employment and a genuine intention to live and economically establish themselves in any one of the Canadian provinces.
