Express Entry is the principal applicant that manages three streams for permanent residency. They are the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class. Candidates are given points based on different scores. Those with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points towards the total CRS scores. The IRCC will continue to hold draws for Express Entry applications and other streams and programs from abroad.
Who is invited? – A hypothetical example.
Ruhi is married to Pragya. Ruhi is 30 years old, has a bachelor’s degree, and is working as a restaurant manager in Canada. Pinky is a 33-year-old working as an account for one year in Canada. Both of them gave the IELTS exam and scored CLB 6 in all the four segments, respectively. They entered the Express Entry pool with Ruhi being the principal applicant. Their CRS score is 437, high enough for them to receive the ITA in the draw held today.
