What Is Express Entry?

Express Entry is an immigration system created by the IRCC to manage Canada PR applicants looking to work in Canada. This system allows applicants to apply for one of four categories which include the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), or a Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs). Each draw will be specific to one of these categories targeting qualified and eligible candidates within the Express Entry pool!

Fast Track Immigration Through PNPs

If you are interested in settling in a specific province, you may have a better chance and quicker results when applying for a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This allows provinces and territories to nominate qualified candidates to work in that location. If you are working within an in-demand job, it could be even quicker! Learn more about Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Will the CRS cut-off go down?

Due to the high volume of candidates in the pool, the CRS cut-off in Canada’s all-program Express Entry draws is likely to remain high until early 2023.

However, in the first quarter of 2023, Canada will start inviting Express Entry candidates based on groupings. Since candidates will be ranked against others in their grouping rather than the entire Express Entry pool, the CRS cut-off will likely be much lower than a general draw.

Groupings may be a combination of factors like work experience in an in-demand occupation, language proficiency or educational background.

The immigration minister is currently going through a thorough consultation process to determine which groupings will be invited. This process will ensure that groupings are selected fairly and based on genuine labour needs. According to the Canadian government, groupings-based draws will likely begin in the first quarter of 2023.
