Express Entry is a system set up by the Canadian Government for foreign people to get PR. It is a score-based system, and the Government selects the candidates from the pool with high express entry CRS scores. And there are three streams within the express entry through which candidates can apply:
- The Federal Skilled Workers Program
- The Federal Skilled Trades Program
- The Canadian Experience Class
Apart from these three categories, there is one more stream named Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Through this, people can get nominations from a particular province.

Moreover, this is beneficial for candidates in the pool as it will give them additional 600 CRS points.
