Express Entry is an application management system in Canada’s immigration for the executives for 3 government programs that include the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates would be given a score dependent on the CRS including some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). The points will be given on several factors of the candidates including age, education, work experience, and language ability in English or French.

The candidates with the highest score get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the Canadian permanent residence (PR) in an Express Entry invitation round.

With this, the total number of ITAs issued this year has increased to 97,350. This is yet another record-breaking year for Express Entry, as the number of ITAs issued so far is the highest.


The record-breaking ITAs issued are in line with Canada’s commitment to welcome over 400,000 new immigrants next year which includes those through the Express Entry system.
