Express Entry Program for Skilled Foreign Workers

Are you a foreign national and a skilled worker hoping to make Canada your new home?

The Express Entry program allows skilled workers to immigrate to Canada through an efficient, points-based system. However, navigating the complex immigration process can be overwhelming and confusing. That’s where an immigration lawyer at the Edmonton Law Office can help.

What is the Express Entry program?

The Express Entry program is a system that manages applications for skilled workers wishing to obtain permanent residency. The program was introduced in 2015 by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to streamline the immigration process and address labour shortages in specific industries.

To be eligible for the Express Entry program, you must first meet the specific requirements for one of the following immigration programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program: a Canadian immigration program that allows skilled workers with certain qualifications and experience to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents through the Express Entry system.
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program: a Canadian immigration program designed to address labour shortages in specific skilled trades occupations in Canada.
  • Canadian Experience Class: a Canadian immigration program designed to help foreign workers and international graduates who have already gained Canadian work experience transition to permanent residence in Canada.

If you meet the requirements for one of these programs, you can create an online Express Entry profile. You will be assigned a score based on various factors, including your work experience, education, language skills, and other qualifications. The highest-scoring candidates will be invited to apply for permanent residence through regular draws from the Express Entry pool.

An immigration lawyer at Edmonton Law Office can help you navigate the Express Entry process and increase your chances of being invited to apply for permanent residence. Here are a few ways the best immigration lawyers can assist you:

  • Maximizing your points: An immigration lawyer can help you maximize your points under the Express Entry system by highlighting your strengths and qualifications. They can also advise you on how to improve your language skills, which can significantly increase your points.
