    Canada Express Entry

    FCJ Refugee Centre

    January 2015

  • Ministerial Instruction 15

    Express Entry Program

     Repeals all processing eligibility criteria (including the application caps and eligible occupation lists) for new applications in the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class

     From January 1, 2015 onwards application intake will be governed by the criteria for the new Express Entry (EE) application management system. Applications must be completed and submitted online and there is no cost to upload an application

  • MI15 Continued

     MI15 will renew the pause on the receipt

    of new applications for the Federal

    Immigrant Investor Class and the Federal

    Entrepreneur Class.

  • Goals of the Express Entry

    System

     The new on-line Electronic Management System (Express Entry)

    was created in order to:

    • Improve application management and prevent backlogs;

    • Increase the labour market responsiveness and empower

    Canadian employers;

    • Assure the best candidates are selected, not the first to apply

  • Implications

     Candidates are placed in a pool where

    they are ranked against each other

     CIC will draw top candidates on a

    periodic basis and issue an “Invitation to

    Apply” ITA to those selected. Must apply

    within 60 days of issuance.

    ◦ Emphasis NOT on the first to apply, but the BEST to apply

  • Applying under Express Entry

    System

     Candidates create an on-line profile detailing an

    “Expression of Interest” in coming to Canada

     Profile should include:

    ◦ Language skill assessment

    ◦ Educational credential assessment

    ◦ Details of work experience- no occupation list, but experience must be in NOC skill type (0, A or B)

  • Express Entry System

     Candidate is at a significant advantage if

    he/she attains a LMIA or provincial

    nomination (PN) job offer

     If the candidate does not have a LMIA or

    is a PN, he/she must register with Job

    Bank (an online portal designed to match

    potential candidates with future

    employers)

  • The Ranking System

    All EE candidates will be given a score out

    of 1200, based on Comprehensive Ranking

    System formula:

     1. Skills and experience

     2. Spouse or common-law partner factors

     3. Skills transferability

     4. Additional points for provincial

    nomination or valid LMIA job offer

    (worth 600 points alone!)
