Those who want to migrate to Canada by Canadian Express Entry should create a profile in the Express Entry pool. Depends on the information presented in the profile regarding several eligibility parameters such as age, educational level, language ability, skilled work experience, etc., each applicant is granted a CRS score out of 1200 points. IRCC fixes a cut-off CRS score for every Express Entry draw and those individuals who qualify based on this specific CRS score are invited to apply for Canada PR.
To access the Federal Express Entry pool, applicants should prove their eligibility below one of the 3 significant federal economic immigration classes managed beneath the Express Entry, which are the Federal Skilled Worker Class; or the Canadian Experience Class; or the Federal Skilled Trades Class.
