ABOUT CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY
Launched in 2015, the Express Entry system of Canada is an online system that comes under the department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Many from the UAE in general and Dubai in particular are exploring Canada immigration options available. As per the Express Entry Year-End Report 2019, more than 1,700 Express Entry candidates with the UAE as their country of residence received an invitation to apply in 2019.
There are many pathways available for those looking to migrate to Canada from Dubai. The Express Entry system remains the most popular Canadian immigration pathway available.
The Canadian government’s first-rate selection process and settlement programs respond effectively to the large number of individuals seeking out new opportunities in Canada.
|Canada Express Entry provides a pathway to Canadian permanent residence for skilled foreign workers, within Canada or abroad. Express Entry has a standard processing time of under six months.|
The federal government of Canada uses the Express Entry system to manage permanent residence submissions under the main economic immigration programs.
