There are three immigration programs a foreigner can apply through to be eligible for Express Entry to Canada: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class and Federal Skilled Trades Program. Each program has its own requirements, however candidates only need to meet the criteria for one. If eligible for one of the programs, you can also apply through Express Entry for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Each of the Express Entry programs have their own minimum requirements, however type of work experience and language assessments are standard for all. Other factors are also taken in to account such as age, education, adaptability and job offers.
First you must determine if you are eligible for express entry, based on the requirements. If eligible, you must submit your profile to be ranked by CRS and gather all necessary documents, including a language assessment and medical and police clearance. If you are accepted, you will receive an invitation to apply for PR.
There is no age limit for the express entry pathway, however ages 18-44 are ranked in points. Below 18 and above 44 receive 0 points, while ages 20-29 receive the highest number of points.
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirements change in each Express Entry draw, making it difficult to determine what the “minimum” should be. It is a good idea to review the latest results to assess what the competitive CRS score is.
