This trend might remain the same in the 18thdraw as well, i.e. the qualifying marks may well go down below 450, and the number of invitations may also increase further in view of federal elections next month, unless huge number of PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) invitations doesnt flood in.

How does Express Entry System for Canada Immigration Works

The Express Entry System has been launched by CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) in the month of January, 2015 in order to make the immigration to Canada faster and smoother. It was further intended to segregate the candidates in the categories and choose the ones that suit best the Canadian Labour market.

The EE system has two basic steps:

  • All the applicants interested in Canadian PR will submit online EOI (Expression of Interest) on the CIC website after creating their online profile.
  • The CIC will accept the candidates in the Express Entry pool and subsequently invite them for a permanent residency visa in Canada.
The candidates are basically chosen in the pool based on their profile details and EOI (Expression of Interest) submitted to the Express Entry System.
