Overview of Express Entry

Express Entry is not an immigration program in itself, but rather a system used by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to select candidates for immigration to Canada using the following economic immigration programs:

  • general, in which case candidates eligible for any federal economic immigration program may be selected based solely on their CRS score; or
  • program-specific, in which case the government of Canada will select candidates for just one of the federal economic immigration programs.
