The fastest way to get the Canada PR visa is by applying via the federal government’s Express entry program. It is the most popular immigration pathway that provides an immigration pathway for skilled immigrants to settle permanently in Canada. Canada PR visa is the best way for immigrants who are looking to live in Canada on a permanent basis. Having a Canada PR visa allows the holder to live, work or study in Canada for duration of five years.

What is the Express Entry Program?

Canadian government’s Express entry program is a point-based program. It manages the profile of the candidates who have applied under Canada’s three skilled immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Candidates are required to create an Express profile once they are able to clear the 67 points eligibility criteria.

After creating an express profile, all the profiles of the candidates are submitted together into an express pool. In an express pool, express profiles are ranked with the help of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and the profiles of the candidate with highest ranked are issued the Invitation to Apply (ITA) via regularly held express draws. With the help of ITA, candidates are able to apply for Canada PR visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC). 

CRS uses the points that are awarded to the express profiles based on the credentials that are submitted by the candidates while creating the express profiles. Mainly these points are awarded based on the following factors:
