Some new pages have been written in the history of Canadian immigration thanks to Express Entry becoming functional from January 1, 2015. This new program has done away with the old CIC system and ensured that no more first-come-first-serve basis deters skilled movement from happening. This program is highly appreciated in the world on account of its swiftness in processing the application, and it just takes 6 months for the entire procedure to get completed.
What is Canada Express Entry Program?
It is an online visa and immigration programme introduced, by the CIC, on the lines of a similar programme being run and managed by New Zealand and Australia. Canada Express Entry Program is an unprecedented programme. To put it differently, it is basically an initiative that was awaited from a long time, and finally it is out and helping plenty of dreams getting canvassed in real colors
It has made immigration sound no longer a herculean pursuit. It has shortened the time lag and under this it will just take six months for migration, and two months for permanent residence (PR). Another thing that sets it apart from all those immigration programs that have ever hit Canada is its niche.
You cannot say that only a bunch of people would be able to move. Rather, under it individuals, representing any professional group, can move without any hassles. The only requirement that is needed is that the job they do should be mentioned in the Skilled Occupation List (SOL).
When you opt for this programme, you have to fill an online Express Entry form. The form would seek some information that is needed to redeem you eligible or not eligible for movement. Your education, experience, language proficiency, adaptability… all would be considered in the first place while assessing your eligibility.
Once you are redeemed qualified to move under this immigration programme, you must apply for the category that best fits your credibility. These are the categories for movement under the Express Entry program, namely, Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), Canadian Experience Class Program (CEC) and Business Class Program. All these have some parameters that you must satiate for facilitating your movement. If you are eligible for any of these programs, in that case, you can apply for Express Entry immigration and land in the nation for work and stay.
Another benefit that this programme guarantees to the immigrants is that they get a fair chance to opt for PR and stay in the Maple Leaf Country permanently. At the same time, it is not confined to a selected category of work and movement.
Hence, no matter whether you are a skilled electrician, engineer, doctor, painter, writer, journalist, librarian, pianist, musician or you represent any profession, as long as there is a dearth for such professionals in the country, you are more than entitled to move using the Express Entry system.
