Express Entry

Canada accepts many immigrants under the Express Entry category.

The Express Entry process streams applicants if they are selected and issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to either the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), or Federal Skilled Trades (FST), or Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Each of the FSW, FST, and CEC has its own selection criteria. Canada Immigration is using a web-based portal for such applications. Since its creation the portal has faced many implementation issues, which are slowly being improved upon with time.

There are also many law firms that offer this service, including licensed and unlicensed “immigration consultants”. In our experience, we cannot compete on pricing with “visa factories” which use “assistants” and others to help process such applications (many outside Canada and not subject to Canadian rules).  See our More Than Filling Out Forms section to understand what we do.

If you need personalized help from an experience lawyer to assist with this type of visa, please set up a PAID consultation and we can then assess your chances for success.
