WHAT IS EXPRESS ENTRY

The Express Entry system is a program used by the Canadian government to manage and process applications for permanent residency from skilled foreign workers. It uses a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to rank candidates based on factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other criteria.
Periodically, the Canadian government conducts draws from the pool of candidates in the Express Entry system and invites a certain number of candidates to apply for permanent residency. The minimum CRS score required to receive an invitation to apply (ITA) can vary from one draw to another, depending on the number of candidates in the pool and other factors.
However, the Canadian government typically does not release information on the number of draws, the number of invitations issued, or the minimum CRS scores required in advance. This information is usually announced only after the draws have taken place. Therefore, it is not possible to provide you with specific information about the number of draws, invitations, and CRS scores for the year 2023.

  • Eligible candidates have to provide personal details such as age, work experience, education, ability in French and English, family details, and ties to Canada.

WHAT IS CANADIAN LANGUAGE BENCHMARK (CLB)

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,

Most of the Canada’s immigration programs need applicants  a provide proof of required level of proficiency in one or both of Canada’s official languages, English and French. Applicants who can speak and correspond in one of the official languages find it easier to find a job and adjust to life in a new country. For this purpose you need to provide language test result from an approved language test.

WHAT IS EDUCATIONAL CREDENTIAL ASSESSMENT

An ECA (Educational Credential Assessment) report compares the foreign education to the Canadian equivalent. If you have more than one post-secondary degree, you usually only need to have your highest degree assessed. However, to get the highest CRS points you might get all of your credentials assessed.
If you have education in Canada, you do not need an ECA.
