Express Entry

Express Entry

Express Entry – Express Entry is an online system that we use to manage applications for permanent residence for 3 programs:

Express Entry is the primary pathway for skilled Foreign Nationals to immigrate and settle in any Canadian province except Quebec. The Express Entry administers 3 economic immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW), Federal Skilled Trade Worker Program (FSTW) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW)

Ideal applicants under Express Entry are chosen as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in Canada and take part in the economy. If you have skilled work experiences is skill types:

TEER 0 (Management Occupations)

TEER 1 (Occupations that usually require a university degree)

TEER 2 (Occupations that usually require a college degree e.g.

* A college Diploma

* Apprenticeship training of 2 or more years OR

*  Supervisory occupations)

TEER 3 – Occupations that usually require

* A college Diploma

* Apprenticeship training of less than 2 years  OR

*  More than 6 months On-the-Job training

TEER 4 – Occupations that usually require 

* A high School diploma OR

* Several Weeks of On-the-Job training

TEER 5 – Occupations that usually need short-term work demonstration and no formal education

Work experience in an occupation listed in 1 of these NOC TEER Categories:

  • TEER 0
  • TEER 1
  • TEER 2
  • TEER 3

along with a competitive academic background and proficient in English/French, then Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) is the route for you!

Federal Skilled Trade Worker Program (FSTW)

Work experience in a skilled trade under key groups of TEER 2 or TEER 3: If you are an individual who is highly skilled in sectors like construction, transportation, industrial and electric sector or you are a chef, cook, butcher, baker and have completed education in these related fields of trades, then you may want to consider moving to Canada under Federal Skilled Trade Worker Program (FSTW).

Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program is designed to allow international students and temporary foreign workers who have one year of work experience in Canada to apply and become Permanent Residents of Canada. If you have Canadian work experience in an occupation listed under TEER 0 or TEER 1 or TEER 2 or even TEER 3 then you might be a potential applicant for the program provided you fulfill other criteria.

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP)

The provincial nomination is an important fast-track option for Canadian permanent residence. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) allows Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province.

Canadian provinces or territories (Except the province of Quebec) have agreements with the government of Canada to select applicants for Permanent Residency under their own unique nominee programs.

The suitable candidates should apply to the express entry pool under the federal program and the interested province will nominate the qualified candidates who had chosen the said province or territory.

Other than that, there are some provinces who offers some special program (other than Express Entry process) to select qualified applicants to address the labor shortage of that province.
