If you are eagerly waiting for Canadian permanent residency, then Express Entry is the choice. It is one of the primary method used in the country to welcome the aspiring immigrants. Express Entry is also called an online system through which the country use to manage immigration applications from skilled workers. 

On July 20 this year, the country has already sent an invitation to 1,750 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence. For now, Canada is now on schedule to accept 55,900 immigrants in 2022, and, by 2024, the goal will soar to 1,11,500.

There are a total of three immigration programs that are managed through the Canadian Express Entry.

1) Canadian Experience Class (CEC):- Aspirants who have Canadian employment experience (gained three years before application) can now apply through this method. Usually, international students living in Canada take this route to apply for PR.

2) Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP):- People with foreign working experience can apply through Express Entry under this program. Under this, factors like age, education, employment history etc are considered for the permanent residency of the country.

3) Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP): Workers who have skills in construction, agriculture, and manufacturing can apply under this category.
