Express Entry Permanent Resident Visa for Skilled Workers

Skilled Foreign Workers can access to 2023 New Express Entry Program — a new electronic application management system — which has been applied to Canada’s key economic immigration programs as below:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trader Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and
  • A portion of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)


Express Entry is not a new immigration program; it is a new way for Citizenship and Immigration Canada (IRCC) to manage economic immigration application online. Express Entry provides employers with access to skilled foreign nationals whom they can consider for a permanent position when they are unable to fill a position with a Canadian or permanent resident.

For prospective skilled foreign workers, Express Entry results in faster processing times.

Express Entry: Changes how Canada selects skilled immigrants:
Moving from the old system ...
Welcome to Canada
  • First applicant In, first to be processed;
  • Difficult to navigate the immigration system due to multiple players;
  • Recruitment of global talent at employer time and expense;
  • Average of 18-24 month to process and application.

  • IRCC will select candidates that are most likely to succeed in Canada, rather than the first in line;
  • Express Entry candidates with a valid job offer or PNP nomination will quickly be invited to apply (ITA) for permanent residence;
  • The new Job Bank will connect Canadian employers with a pool of skilled foreign national candidates if they can’t find Canadians or permanent resident to do the job;
  • Express Entry candidates will benefit from processing times of six months or less.*
