There’s no limit to the number of candidates who can apply for Canada PR through Express Entry

Express Entry is typically different from any system that existed before it was introduced. It has no deadlines for submitting an online application and it has no limits on the number of candidates from the Express Entry pool, who can apply for permanent residence.

The Express Entry has specific streams for specific types of immigration candidates

Express Entry has 3 economic immigration programs that cater to different types of candidates looking for Canada PR. These are:

  • FSWP for skilled foreign workers outside Canada
  • FSTP for skilled tradespeople outside Canada
  • CEC for skilled foreign nationals already residing in Canada as temporary visa holders

Another program that’s significant when linked to Express Entry is the PNP. Through this program, Canadian provinces/territories can choose Canada immigration candidates in the Express Entry pool to migrate to that province/territory. For this, immigration candidates are nominated by a province/territory and granted 600 additional CRS points.

The Express Entry Program follows a point system

You can actually measure your chances to get a Canada PR using the Canada immigration points calculator as the whole Express Entry system is points based. These points are granted for various factors against a maximum point of 1,200. These factors could be age, education, work experience, and language skills among others.
