Find out more about the recent changes to Express Entry.

The Express Entry system creates a pool of pre-assessed candidates that may be eligible to immigrate to Canada. Candidates get points based on a number of criteria, and the highest ranking candidates in the pool are invited to apply to immigrate to Canada.

There are different requirements to get into the pool and to be chosen from it. You must meet all the entry criteria to get into the pool. To be chosen from the pool, you must have one of the highest-ranking scores (see below) when there is a round of invitations.

Pool entry criteria

To get into the Express Entry pool, you will need to meet the criteria of one of the federal immigration programs subject to Express Entry:

You can read about the criteria of any of these programs at the above links. Or, you can use our online tool, Come to Canada, to see if you might meet the criteria to get into the Express Entry pool.

Comprehensive Ranking System

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a points-based system that is used to assess and score a candidate’s profile to rank them in the Express Entry pool.

The CRS will assess the profile information you submit, including:

  • skills,
  • work experience,
  • language ability,
  • education and other factors.

We have found these factors all play a role in economic success for immigrants once in Canada. You can get additional points if you have a job offer or a nomination by one of Canada’s provinces or territories.

We regularly send an invitation to apply to the highest ranking candidates in the pool. If you are invited, you can apply to immigrate as a permanent resident.

Comprehensive Ranking System formula

All Express Entry candidates are given a score out of 1,200, based on the four parts of the Comprehensive Ranking System formula:

  • Skills and experience factors (that we know are key to economic success for immigrants once in Canada)
  • Spouse or common-law partner factors (such as their language skills and education – these are known to result in better economic success for both the spouse or common-law partner and the candidate)
  • Skills transferability (including education and work experience – factors that when combined, result in better chances of being employed, and higher earnings)
  • Additional points for those with a nomination from a province or territory, a valid job offer or a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate.
A. Single candidates B. Candidates spouses or common-law partners that will come with them to Canada

Canada Immigration 2019 – 2021 Goals and lot of opportunities.


Already everyone has come to know that Canada is a great destination for migration. The country is known for its wonderful natural landscape, friendly people and civil liberties, it’s really a place-someone who can tell your home. Being the second largest country in the world, there are plenty of places and opportunities for immigrants to start a new life in Canada.

Canada has increased their immigration program to new heights by crossing the previous year’s intake. The number of immigrants in Canada for immigration to Canada has been set at 330,800 in 2019. Above all, in 2019-2021, Canada has planned to take a new 1,021,800 new permanent residents in this three year period.

The goal of 2019 has been set to 330,800, with the goal of 2020 achieving 341,000 new immigrants and reaching the number of 2021 immigrants to 350,000.

Why Canada Immigration 2019?

As stated earlier, in Canada, about 1,021,800 immigrants are preparing to welcome in the coming years. Canada’s immigration is going to start in 2015. So this is the right time to apply to confirm your place among thousands of new immigrants.

Many people wait for the “right time” to make important decisions in life, but you will not have the appropriate time if you do not take action. So do not hesitate to take advantage of the opportunity given to you, because you have nothing to lose, but there is a lot to get. If you are in doubt that you are qualified for migration, then evaluate yourself instead of doubting.

The immigration issue in Canada has become easier now because of the lowest CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) recorded in the past few months. For those who do not know, your CRS score is determined by your core human capital. It is a numerical score of 1200 which is determined by various elements such as language, qualification, education history and work experience etc. The higher your score, the greater the chance of getting elected for an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence.

The lowest score was 439 in the last recorded Express Entry draw. It is assumed that the cut-off point will be low because Canada must meet its immigration goals before the end of the year.

Start your application process today so that you can submit your profile fast in the Express Entry Pool. Because, in Canada, Canada will be the next federal election in October 2019. This election will determine whether the country will run under the current leadership or will change hands. It is also possible that another government may change plans for migration through another government. If you want to take advantage of the current immigration status, please confirm the application at the beginning of the year 2015. Talk to our Counselor for details on any immigration issues.

Why Are Immigrants Needed?

In Canada, due to excess labor shortage, the need to increase the number of immigrants to meet the deficit and increase population. In fact, this incident has been identified as “dangerous”. For this reason, new immigrants need to fulfill this shortfall. Nearly every province, including Quebec, Atlantic Canada (Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Saskatchewan), has seen labor shortage. That’s why the government has formulated a fast-track immigration program called the Atlantic Pilot Program, through which skilled and unskilled workers will come to work and live in Canada’s provinces and territories.

Another reason for labor shortage is the reduction in population, not just a worker’s job. Because of this, Canada welcomes more immigrants to their borders to ensure the growth of the economy for the future.

How to Immigrate to Canada

There are more than 60 routes to reach Canada. But the strategy is to apply for a suitable program for you. Each of these categories has different requirements, you need to fill them in order to successfully migrate. Here’s a description of some popular streams to our customers.

Express Entry: Canada’s Express Entry system, as well as the name, is one of the most popular and fastest routes you can migrate through. Express Entry was created for fast-track immigration in Canada. The initial goal was to process applications within 6 months; But the good news is that Canada exceeds its expectation and most of the applications are now processed at a time of 4 months.
Provincial Nomination Programs (PNP): PNP is a province or region-based program that allows Canada’s provinces and territories to attract and retain immigrants in their borders. Generally, this is an employer-centric method, that means the employer will contact you by viewing your Expression of Interest profile. There are multiple sub-categories of each PNP, there is a necessity of their own, so uncertainty can be created if they manage them without the help of a professional person. If you want to migrate to a specific area or region, this is the best way for you.
Family Sponsorship Program: If your family member is a permanent resident or citizen in Canada, then your opportunity will be strong. Canada offers a chance to reunite family members through the Family sponsorship program. However, all family members are not eligible as sponsors and both sponsor and applicant must meet certain requirements, for example you can only sponsor spouses, dependent children, parents, grandchildren or close relatives of orphans.
