The Express Entry program is the most popular pathway for skilled and economic-class immigrants to enter Canada and become permanent residents.

A number of candidates are selected from the Express Entry pool selected every few weeks too and invited to apply for permanent residency through one of three programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
