The easiest and fastest method to acquire Canadian PR is through the Express Entry procedure.
After accepting the invitation to apply (ITA) and uploading the required documents, the processing time is typically 6 months.
The Express Entry system rates candidate profiles using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), a points-based approach.
An Invitation to Apply (ITA) is sent to profiles whose scores exceed the CRS cutoff in a draw. And the invited candidates then submit an application for permanent residency.
Applications for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and Federal Skilled Trades Program are managed via the Express Entry system (FSTP).
Candidates in the Express Entry pool who have a provincial nomination and a profile in one of the aforementioned programs get 600 additional points.
