What is Express Entry?
The IRCC uses Express Entry, an online method for managing applications, to choose people for permanent residency based on their Comprehensive Ranking Score.
The CRS looks at things like work experience, industry, language skills, schooling, age, and more when deciding who to hire.
When an eligible Express Entry candidate create their profile on the IRCC website, they are given a CRS number based on these factors and put in a ranking pool with other candidates.
Most likely to get an invitation to apply (ITA) are the candidates with high CRS Scores.
