Express Entry Canada

As of the 31st of January 2015, the first round of candidates selection under Express Entry Canada was held and 779 Invitations To Apply for Canadian permanent residence were issued. It is worthwhile to note that each of 779 candidates has job offer or Selection Certificate from any Province. The lowest score among candidates was 886 (maximum score is 1200 points). Meanwhile, we remind that each candidate got 600 points for job offer or Provincial Selection Certificate. Therefore, it may be concluded that after deduction of additional 600 points minimum passing score was 286 points.

Based on all other factors, average candidate may have the following characteristics:

  • age – 35 ( with family) – 65 points;
  • 3 years of education after high school – 112 points;
  • language proficiency – 6,0 for each IELTS module – 64 points;
  • additional applicant has 3 years of education after high school – 7 points;
  • language proficiency of additional applicant – 0 points;
  • education/language of principal applicant – 13 points;
  • work experience/ language of principal applicant – 25 points.

Totally – 286 points (+ 600 points for job offer or Provincial Nomination).

However, presently, our experience shows that candidates have mostly results between 200 and 400 points without job offer or Provincial Nomination.

According to the passing score under Express Entry system as of January 2015 the following recommendations for potential immigrants can be identified:

  1. Optimal variant for immigration is obtainment of Provincial Nomination. If you have not yet started process of immigration to Canada or do not know how to choose immigration program for submission, please contact specialists of Palleonn Center to evaluate your chances for immigration and advise you on all available Provincial Immigration programs.
  2. Finding employer who can make and get Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) for you as for foreign worker. For this purpose we recommend you to visit Canada for interviews with potential employers.
  3. In addition, it is possible that the number of “+600” candidates with job offers or Provincial Nomination will decrease and the Government may start issuing Invitations To Apply for Canadian permanent residence to candidates with average score of 200-400 points. Yet such situation may not happen, taking into view that the Government of Canada aims to select the most potential candidates who can get economically established in Canada as soon as possible.
