EXPRESS ENTRY CANADA
Express Entry uses a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The system automatically ranks interested candidates and selects the most competitive for immigration to Canada. The core factors considered are age, level of education, language proficiency in English and/or French, and work experience. Candidates under Express Entry submit their Expression of Interest, and the IRCC issues invitation letters to successful candidates per a scoring system.
