It also takes into consideration the program opted by an individual immigrant, education or working background as well as the scope of making investments and having earlier trading relations with Canada.
Candidates should be 18 years of age at the time of application, for below 18 years old candidates, the application can be completed on their behalf by their parent or guardian having Canadian Citizenship. The person should have lived for more than 3 years in Canada. Proficiency in English or French as these are the two official languages. Also the candidate should not possess any past criminal history, which might render the process unfruitful.

Finally, Canada issues permanent resident visas to qualified asylum seekers and certain individuals on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
Express Entry is an immigration system where applications are filed electronically.
It is not an immigration program. Rather, it facilitates the selection process of the following Canadian economic immigration programs:
Applicants raise an "expression of interest" (EOI) for immigrating to Canada, if they are eligible for at least one of the programs, they then enter the Express Entry pool. The federal government and provincial governments, as well as Canadian employers can select the candidates from this pool who will then receive an Invitation To Apply (ITA) for one of the programs.
Express Entry moves Canada from a first come, first served or supply-driven system to an invitation to apply or demand-driven system. Thus, Express Entry aims to fast track the process of skilled immigrants who are deemed most likely to be successfully accepted in Canada.
All provinces and territories, except for Quebec, Alberta and Nunavut, currently use Express Entry. Provinces and territories are able to nominate a certain number of candidates through the Express Entry system to meet their local and provincial labour market needs. These are known as "enhanced" nominations. If an applicant gets an enhanced nomination from a province or territory, he or she is then given 600 additional points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence at a subsequent draw from the pool. All candidates must meet the eligibility criteria of one of the federal economic immigration programs in order to enter and be selected from the Express Entry pool.
Just as they manage their own Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), provinces and territories set the criteria they use to nominate Express Entry candidates. Depending on the province/territory, Express Entry candidates may either enter the pool first and then be nominated by a province or territory, or be nominated by a province or territory and then complete an online Express Entry profile. Provinces and territories are also able to make nominations under their regular (“base”) PNPs outside the Express Entry system.
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is the ranking process of candidates offered by the government of Canada, based on their human capital and determined factors such as age, level of education, and language ability. This enables Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to decide which candidates must be issued invitations to apply for permanent residence.
An Express Entry candidate can obtain up to 1,200 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System, which are distributed across several factors. A candidate’s age, education, language proficiency and work experience known as a core human capital factor has a score out of 500. Combinations of some of these factors are called Skill Transferability factors and can be worth up to 100 additional points. These 600 points constitute what's known as a candidate’s core CRS score. Points are also awarded for additional factors, such as a provincial nomination, an offer of arranged employment, prior to Canadian study experience, French language ability, and a sibling who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada. While these points are not required in order to enter or to be selected from the Express Entry pool, they can significantly increase a candidate’s CRS score. The most valuable additional factor is a provincial nomination, which results in 600 CRS points. Many provincial nominee program streams are only available to candidates in the Express Entry pool.
Age is one of the prevailing factors that counts for points under the CRS. Age is worth up to 110 points for a single applicant or 100 points for a candidate with a spouse or common-law law partner. Maximum points for age are awarded to candidates between 20 and 29. Candidates are no longer awarded points after the age of 45, but they may still be eligible to submit an Express Entry profile and could obtain an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residence on the strength of their scores under other factors.
The Provincial Nominee Programs were established by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC, formerly CIC) to allow Canada's different provinces and territories to select individuals who indicate an interest in settling in a particular province/territory and who will be able to contribute to that province/territory's economic development.
Most, but not all, provinces and territories of Canada participate in the Provincial Nominee Program.
No. You can obtain a Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa without a provincial nomination.
Candidates in the Express Entry pool who obtain an enhanced nomination from a province are awarded 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System, out of a possible total of 1,200. When these additional points are added to a candidate’s human capital and skills transferability points, it will result in an invitation to apply for permanent residence at a subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool. Depending on the province, candidates eligible to enter the Express Entry pool may either enter the pool first and then be nominated by a province or territory, or be nominated by a province or territory before completing an online Express Entry profile and entering the Express Entry pool.
