What is Canada Express Entry?
Express Entry basically provides a pathway to permanent residence for potential skilled foreign workers in Canada and the processing is done in just six months or less.
Applicants can apply for express entry under following immigration programs:
- the Federal Skilled Worker Program
- the Federal Skilled Trades Program
- the Canadian Experience Class
Also, Provinces and territories can Pick candidates from Express Entry through their Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) to meet local labour market needs.
Express Entry Program works on these two steps:
- Create and Fill out your Express Entry profile
- Get accepted in the Express Entry Pool
- Get an Invitation to Apply (ITA)
- Apply for Permanent Residence (PR) in Canada

Why Canada is increasing the draw size for Immigrants?
Well Canada need immigrants as the Canada’s labour force shrank in June, because a large number of people are retiring after turning 55. And 1 million job vacancies are generated in Canada due to Summer.
Recently a survey conducted by RBC survey suggested one third of Canadians (around 9 million Canadians) would be retiring early during this decade due to pandemic or old age.
Canada’s fertility rate is decreasing and hit a record low of 1.4 children per woman in 2020. Due to this Canada plans to increase its population every year by 1% by admitting immigrants.
Canada recently passed a bill to allow immigration minister to invite more Express Entry candidates based on economic need.
And the draws could be based upon the occupation of candidate, language or region.
