Congratulations on taking the first step! Express Entry is the most popular way economic immigrants obtain permanent residency in Canada.
While many people believe that Express Entry is a Canadian immigration program, it is in fact the name of the online application management system IRCC uses. The Express Entry system is used to manage applications for 3 specific economic immigration programs:
Canadian Experience Class - For people with skilled Canadian work experience
Federal Skilled Worker - For people with skilled foreign work experience
Federal Skilled Trades - For people with skilled trades (plumbing, electrical, etc) work experience
The requirements for Express Entry can be confusing because it is different for each program (CEC, FSW, FST). Generally speaking, here are the main requirements to be eligible for Express Entry.
*This is not an exhaustive list of all eligibility requirements. This representation is to compare some of the main requirements for these programs.
Express Entry is generally a 3-step process with numerous sub-steps and actions required between each step.
