Welcome to RightWay Canada, your trusted partner in navigating Canada’s Express Entry immigration system. Our team of top rated Express Entry consultants is dedicated to helping you achieve your Canadian immigration goals smoothly and efficiently.

Canada has one of the most positive immigration policies in the world and welcomes more than 500,000 new immigrants each year. According to an international survey conducted recently, 53 percent of adults in the world’s 24 leading countries said they would immigrate to Canada. While Canada offers a great choice of both Federal and Provincial immigration programs, immigration to Canada has become increasingly popular due to the main driver of the Canadian immigration system – Express Entry. The three Express Entry programs are the Federal Skilled WorkerFederal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.  

With no cap on the number of applications being accepted for processing, the Express Entry system offers a reassuringly accessible pathway to Canada. Applicants can submit their Express Entry profiles at any time without the worry that the program will close or fill up before their application is completed. Express Entry candidates receive priority processing and increased accessibility for candidates with a valid job offer from a broader range of skilled occupations matching a specific NOC code. This allows eligible applicants to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA), settle in Canada permanently, and receive a Canadian Permanent Residency (PR). Upon receiving an invitation to apply, candidates must submit additional forms and files like medical exams, police certificates, and biometrics. You can learn more about the latest Express Entry Draws.

All immigration programs managed under the Express Entry system have different eligibility criteria. Thus, the ability to qualify under one of these categories is the first requirement under Express Entry. Applicants are advised to check all the details and the eligibility requirements of each program. 

Navigating the Express Entry system can be complex and daunting, but with our team of top rated immigration consultantsby your side, the process becomes much smoother. We offer comprehensive support in various ways. To better understand your eligibility for the Canadian Express Entry system, you can use our Express Entry Calculator, a user-friendly tool designed to help you be better prepared for your upcoming application process.

If you wish to gain more insights into the most popular questions about Express Entry, you can look at some of the FAQs regarding the system. 

Express Entry Pool of Candidates

Express Entry is a system that involves two steps: 1. Create and complete an online Express Entry profile, and be placed in a pool of candidates, and 2. Receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence from IRCC. Candidates in the pool are ranked using a point-based system (CRS).

Getting into Express Entry doesn’t guarantee an invitation to apply, since applicants have to meet all eligibility and admissibility requirements. Upon entering the pool, candidates are assigned a CRS score based on education, specific TEER category either foreign or Canadian work experience, language proficiency (IELTS, CELPIP, or TEF assessment of CLB level), and other criteria. Applicants may be eligible for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) to boost their CRS scores.  The three Express Entry streams that are managed by the OINP are the Human Capital Priorities Stream, the French Speaking Skilled Worker Stream, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program. 

The highest-ranking candidates are regularly selected from the draw and invited to apply for a Canadian Permanent Resident status to contribute to the economic goals set by IRCC.
