Five years of Express Entry
The Express Entry online selection system was launched in 2015 and the first invitation round happened on January 31, 2015. Before the Express Entry, Canada processed applications to the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and Federal Skilled Trades (FST) on a first-come, first-served basis. This approach meant that all candidates were guaranteed to have their applications reviewed, and those that met the requirements received permanent residence — provided they passed an admissibility check (for health, security, and criminality). Since the opening of Express Entry, IRCC invited 322,788 foreign nationals in 132 draws to apply for permanent residence in Canada. The lowest score in the history of the system was 413 points, recorded on May 31, 2017.
