How Can I Apply for Express Entry?

The Canadian government uses a system called Express Entry to handle applications for permanent residence. The CRS, a point-based system, is used by Express Entry to rank candidate profiles. It takes two steps to submit an Express Entry application. The initial step is to submit your profile along with the required documentation. Results of language tests, academic credentials, passports, or different types of travel documents are typically required.

You can submit your whole application for the IRCC to review after submitting a profile and being invited to apply for Canadian permanent residency. Added proof of identity, letters of recommendation, police clearance records, and the results of a medical exam should all be included in your complete application.
