Express Entry Candidates follow Canadian Immigration points and are ranked in the pool based on a score awarded under the CRS that considers factors such as age, education, skilled work experience, and proficiency in English or French and then picked up in subsequent Canada Express Entry draw – rounds of invitations.

The Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main skilled labor immigration categories – the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.

A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for an Express Entry invitation to apply (ITA), though additional CRS points are awarded if a candidate has one.
