As a new method of selecting and managing applications for immigration to Canada, Express Entry is a quick and efficient electronic system that allows candidates to apply for permanent residence.

Express Entry is used to manage applications for permanent residence under the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class, and Provincial Nominee Program.

In order to qualify for this system, applicants must supply information about their qualifications, work experience, education, language ability and age. Based on these factors, applicants are awarded points according to the Comprehensive Ranking System and a total score is tallied for each individual.

Successful applicants are then entered into the Express Entry pool where Canadian employers are able to select candidates with the skills and expertise that they are looking for before issuing a formal invitation to apply for permanent residence.

The Canada Immigration requirements may vary based on different immigration programs or visa categories in Canada. However, there are certain basic requirements, which are common for most of the Immigration programs in Canada. Here are the basic requirements for immigration to Canada through Express Entry, QSWP, PNP and various other immigration programs.

  • Language Proficiency: You have to provide a proof of your language proficiency in any of the Canada’s official languages, i.e. English and French, via registered testing and certification agencies, i.e. IELTS (International English Language Testing System) for English. The required language score is CLB 7 for your first official language in 4 different language areas.
  • Education: You need to provide your foreign Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report when submitting application for Canada Immigration. The ECA through WES is the most common way of getting your credential assessed.
  • Health and Character requirements: To become eligible for Canada immigration, you need to be in good health and of decent character. You also need to provide the essential medical and police certifications with regards to the same.

The other factors, i.e. Age, Work Experience, adaptability, etc. vary as per the immigration program or the visa type you are applying for. Now, you must be having question in your mind about how long it takes to immigrate to Canada? Well, let’s find out the processing time of Canada immigration in next section.

The Canada Immigration Process Timing is basically the time it takes to get the procedure completed for Immigration to Canada, i.e. the total time it takes from submitting profile to visa approval, etc. The processing time is actually subject to the immigration program or visa category you choose. It may vary based on the below factors:

  • Immigration Program: The processing time of Canada immigration may differ based on the type of immigration program you are applying to, i.e. Express Entry System, QSWP, or any other Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). As all the mentioned programs claim the processing time as per their own system and criteria.
  • Visa Application: The immigration processing time also depends on the fact whether you have submitted the visa application correctly or not, as incorrect details on the application may also delay processing.
  • Documents/Information: How quickly you present the required information or document from authorities, may also impact the processing time. So, get all your documents and certifications ready, i.e. ECA through WES, IELTS certification, etc. The character and health certification is also required later on, i.e. after receiving ITA from IRCC.
  • LMIA Approval: Time taken for LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment) approval in case of Canadian job offer based visas, may also impact your Process Timing. If you are applying for Canada immigration based on a job offer from Canada, your employer in Canada has to take LMIA approval certificate, which confirms that there is no local candidate available for the job being offered to an overseas candidate.

However, the processing time can be reduced, if you take the assistance or support from a reliable Immigration Consultancy Service and complete all the formalities in time with regards to visa filing, document arrangement, certifications, IELTS and ECA certification, character and health certifications, etc.

The key express entry eligibility requirements are as follows:
