As of January 2015, Citizen and Immigration Canada (CIC) introduced a new online system to manage application for permanent residency under certain economic programs. This new system is called the Express Entry system.
The goal of the Express Entry system is to allow CIC to expedite application processing time in an effort to secure the best immigration candidates.
If you are considering applying for permanent residency under the following program:
The new express entry system will be for you.
With the Express Entry System, an electronic profile of the applicant must be prepared and submitted to CIC. ImmigCanada can help you navigate through this process and submit the best profile for you.
CIC will then assess and rank your profile amongst other applicant’s profiles in a pool. Your assessment and ranking will be based on:
Only top ranked profiles would receive an invitation to apply for permanent residency in Canada.
Note: Completing an online Express Entry profile or entering the pool does not guarantee that you will get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence.
The government’s objective is to process most applications for permanent residency within six months or less. (This period starts on the date they get a complete application and ends on the date a final decision is made on your application for permanent residence.)
If you are ranked amongst the top profiles and you are invited to apply for permanent residency, ImmigCanada will walk you step-by-step in preparing this application and submitting it to CIC
