Express Entry

Before getting into all the three Immigration programs, any individual has to go through the Express Entry in the first place. This is the gateway for every candidate applying for permanent residency in Canada. Through Express Entry, the individual can choose the program convenient to his score, where he/she holds good chances of receiving the invitation. The Express Entry is an online system that is the fastest and the most secure way to lodge your profile for applying the PR. All one needs to do is create an online profile and fill the information asked. The CRS score would be calculated based on the information provided by the applicant.

Comprehensive Ranking System CRS:

The Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) is the online ranking system designed to check the eligibility of the potential skilled immigrants. With a total of 1200 points, it has 3 different factors through which it categorizes and calculates the points accordingly for every candidate.

  • Core Human Capital Factors – maximum claimable points of 500.
  • Skill Transferability Factors – maximum claimable points of 100.
  • Additional Factors – maximum claimable points of 600.

Canada Immigration Process : FSW, PNP, AIPP

An eligible potential applicant can apply for Canada Immigration through the Federal Skilled Worker Program, if he/she is holding a score of 430 and above in the Comprehensive ranking system as per the current circumstances. Once the Express entry is lodged, the CRS Score is calculated bases on the data provided in the Express Entry form. While the applicant is in the pool waiting for the invitation, this is the time when the applicant’s Job bank account is created and is linked with the Express Entry profile. 

What is a Job bank account? Technically, it is a database, which helps your profile to be visible to the employers looking for the workers with your skills. 

Under the Federal skilled worker program, the skilled workers are selected based on their capability to contribute to the Canadian economy. The eligibility is checked based on their qualifications, work experience, language skill tests, etc. If one receives the invitation through the FSWP, the candidate is free to work and live in any province in Canada. The candidate just needs to wait for the invitation from the FSW, if the score is good enough and post receiving the invitation, the applicant can proceed with the Immigration process. If the score is not good enough, then the applicant can go for the other 2 programs and check whether he/she holds a chance for the Invitation.

Furthermore, there are 3 various types of programs under the Federal Skilled Worker Program in general, categorized based on the occupation NOC codes. But then the Federal Skilled worker class is the prominent category through which many candidates apply.

Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC): This program is for the applicants who have the specific qualifications and work experience, and willing to live in any province outside of Quebec. The minimum score is 67 points to be eligible for applying under this stream. Also, the candidate’s occupation should be under the Skilled type O, A, and B.

The candidates who are not able to get through the FSW Program due to less qualifying CRS Score. These candidates have another option of going through the Provincial Nominations. If applied under the provincial Nominee Program, one province from Canada would be giving the applicant invitation for the PR. But then there would be more chances for an applicant to get the invitation under the PNP process. Also, if one is invited by a province, the applicant is required to stay and work in that province for at least 3 years initially. There are 11 different provinces open under the PNP program, for an applicant to choose and apply based on eligibility. 

In here, the applicant gets the advantage of additional points:

  • For selecting one province. (A profile gets added with 600 additional points under PNP).
  • Considering the work experience of 5 years and above.

Simple steps to follow for applying for Canada PR Visa through PNP:

  • Submit your EOI to the province you are eligible for applying for.
  • Wait for the Nomination certificate, keep checking your email and the EOI account for the updates and notifications.
  • On acceptance, you need to gather all the required documents.
  • Start filling forms and uploading the documents, make sure you submit the application within a given period of time.
  • Await the response from the CIC, regarding your PR Visa decision.

Eligibility Criteria:

The eligibility criteria might vary a bit for every province, however, there would not be a huge difference in the criteria mentioned for the Express entry, in general. Do contact us for checking the acceptance rate of your profile with the province in which you are planning to settle.
