The Express Entry System provides a fast-tracked route to Canadian permanent residence for foreign nationals who have certain in-demand workplace skills needed to fill job vacancies or skilled worker shortages in key industries. Admission through these economic programs is merit-based and competitive, and only the highest-ranking applicants will receive an Invitation to Apply for PR Canada.
There are three Express Entry Streams:
Each stream has specific requirements that must be met. If a candidate meets the minimum requirements, they may submit a profile through the online Express Entry System.
