Canada Express Entry

Canada is a popular destination for people wanting to migrate to another country.  The country is a favorite option because of its welcoming attitude to immigrants and various job opportunities for a young and skilled workforce.

Canada promises a comfortable lifestyle and the right living conditions. One of the options to migrate to Canada is to obtain a Permanent Resident (PR) visa. This visa is valid for five years and can be renewed.

In order to get your Canada PR visa, you will have to go through an application process. You can apply for the PR visa under the various immigration programs the government of Canada offers. Among the various immigration programs, the Express Entry system is the most popular.

This immigration program was started in 2015 for managing the applications under its Economic Class immigration programs.

Canada immigration programs work on a points-based system. An applicant must score a minimum number of points to gain the eligibility to apply for a PR visa. The applicants score points on various criteria such as age, language, education and work experience.

Here are the points you can score under the various criteria to meet the eligibility requirement:

  • Age: You can score the maximum points if you are between 18-35 years. Those above this age will gain lesser points.
  • Education: Your minimum educational qualification must be equal to the higher secondary education level in Canada.
  • Work experience: To score the minimum points you should have at least one year of work experience. More years of work experience will help you gain more points.
  • Language ability: You must have at least 6 bands in your IELTS equivalent to CLB 7 to be eligible to apply. Higher scores mean more points.
  • Adaptability: You gain ten points on the adaptability factor if your family members or close relatives are living in Canada and will be able to support you when you move in there.
  • Arranged employment: A valid job offer from a Canadian employer entitles you for ten points.
Eligibility factors

You need to have a minimum of 67 points out of 100 to enter the Express Entry pool. Once your application is in the Express Entry pool you will get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) based on the Express Entry draw that is conducted periodically.
