Express Entry System The federal government commenced the system Express Entry in 2015 to provide a fast-track processing time (around six months) in the skilled/educated worker programs. The programs are
  • Federal Skilled Worker Program,
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program and finally
  • Canadian Experience Class.
Engineers can apply for programs that come under the Express Entry system, the FSWP. They must also create a profile (online) which will measure the education, qualifications, and other factors by using the CRS. Candidates accordingly get points and enter the EE pool. It measures the score against other candidates during the draw normally happening in two weeks. CRS Criteria It Awards Points For:
  • Language proficiency in English/French
  • Age

We help the Engineers and guide them throughout the process.  With this, it will be easy for you to stand a good chance to achieve the ITA for permanent residence.
