It eradicates the previous selection method wherein both semi-skilled and skilled professionals were issued permanent residency based on their selection in the specific quota rather than being judged on the parameters of skills and the requirement of the country with the Express Entry system in effect, Canada now invites skilled professionals from worldwide through a fair ranking procedure. It is linked with a National Occupation Classified- a listing of all occupations that are a high demand in Canada. It covers four programs, specifically helping immigration of four different classes-the skilled professionals, tradesmen, international students and candidates who are a priority to the provinces of Canada. Each of these programs has its own set of prerequisites of selection. By the means of the four programs of Express Entry, Canada gives a pathway to both economic class and families to obtain permanent residency status.
The Canada Express Entry is also a helpful platform for Canadian employers and the Governments of Canadian provinces to select candidates that meet their skills requirement. Through a feature of Job Bank and Provincial Nominee Programs, employers and provinces respectively can select and nominate candidates for the permanent residency of Canada.
