CanadaSkilled Worker Immigration
People from around the world can migrate under the Express Entry Canadian Immigration in just a few months. The pathway was first launched in 2015 and has now grown as the most prominent one driving skilled workers from around the globe to Canada.

- Have at least one year of work experience in a skilled occupation
- Complete language testing for one of the official languages in English/French
- Have their qualifications assessed to determine equivalency to a Canadian credential
- Have the required minimum Proof of Funds

How long does it take to migrate under the Express Entry System?
The Express Entry system aims to provide aspiring immigrants a fast-track route to Canada. For candidates who receive an ITA after entering the express entry pool and immediately submit their application, the immigration process might take around six months or less. However, some variables might extend the timeline, such as the following:
- Some candidates receive an ITA soon after they enter the pool. However, a few of them might receive an ITA after a few months or not at all, considering their CRS score.
- After receiving an ITA, some candidates are immediately ready to migrate to Canada. On the other hand, other candidates might need even more than the allotted 60 days to relocate.
- While IRCC intends to process every immigration application within six months, some of them might take longer.
