What is the Express Entry Program?

Canadian Immigration Program that allows immigrants to live and work in Canada as a skilled worker through Express Entry. The new system will allow Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to pro-actively assess, recruit and select immigrants who are skilled and/or possessed the relevant qualifications under federal economic immigration programs:

How Express Entry Works

  • Creating an account with Quebec Immigration
  • Complete Application
  • Submit Application
  • Submit Documents
  • Receive Quebec Selection Certificate
  • Apply for visa to CIC

Step 1

Potential candidates fill out an online Express Entry form. Candidates who are eligible for the Express Entry program can complete an online profile which will include various details about themselves, including their skills, their language ability, education and previous work experience, amongst others.

Step 2

The Government will invite successful candidates and permanent residency will be processed within 6 months. Those ranking highly in the pool (based on skills, experience, eligible job offers and relevant nominations where applicable) will then be invited to apply for permanent residency, and will have a total of 60 days to submit their electronic application.
