Federal Immigration Express entry

CIC, a professional partner for fast immigration and federal immigration

Express Immigration : Express Entry

1. Express Entry (EE) System and Basic Eligibility

It is a fast and efficient online federal permanent residency application system that has been in operation since January 1, 2015.
In order to register online, you must meet the basic application qualifications for at least one of the three immigration categories that were previously operated to accept professional manpower as shown below.

If one or more of the basic application qualifications for each immigration category are possible, and you register an online profile, the registered profile is valid for one year and can be updated frequently to increase your score. For registration, proof of language proficiency (IELTS-GT or CELPIP for English test, TEF or TCF official test score for French test) and vocational and educational background (certificate of academic background in case of academic background outside Canada) are required.

Applicants who qualify for one or more of the three basic applications (FSW, CEC, FST) will register for the EE Online Profile and receive a score assessed by the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). On a weekly basis (about every other week), regardless of immigration category or category, 3,000 to 5,000 people with high scores are usually selected and an invitational ITA (Invitation to Apply) letter is issued online.
When you receive an ITA, you can quickly obtain permanent residency in about 6 months if there are no defects in the documents after uploading the documents that meet all the correct criteria, including background check, online as stipulated.

※ Bridging Open Work Permit
Applicants who have work permits due to expire within 4 months in Canada can apply for an Open Work Permit that allows them to work anywhere without any restrictions without a fixed employer by attaching an Acknowledgment of Receipt (AOR) letter received when the ITA is received and documents are uploaded before receiving permanent residency It can be extended by one year.

The challenge
CIC will be with you

The US immigration process is different from Canada and Australia.
It is a safe program that allows you to obtain permanent residency first and then enter the United States.
However, there may be disadvantages in the procedure time when applying in Korea.
We recommend that you find the fastest and safest route after consulting with the head office.

Immigration for Professionals (FSWP: Federal Skilled Workers Program)

Must have at least one consecutive full-time paid work experience within the last 10 years in one occupation that falls under the National Occupational Classification NOC O, A, B (Administrative, Professional, Technically Permanent). It is the most traditional federal immigration system in existence for more than 20 years of the current immigration class.
In all areas, language proficiency of IELTS 6.0 (general training module) or higher and holders of overseas academic backgrounds other than Canada, such as Korea, require an ECA (Educational Credential Assessment) for overseas education. For the Professional Workforce Immigration (FSW) program, after obtaining language CLB 7 (IELTS 6.0 in all areas) and academic qualification documents, you must score at least 67 in the score table below to register for the EE profile.

Canada Experience Class (CEC)

Experience immigration, which started on September 17, 2008, places importance on the experience of adapting to Canada, which is possible if you have had legal experience in Canada for one year out of the last three years in managerial, professional, and technical occupations that fall under NOC O, A, and B in the local area. This is the most common federal immigration system in recent years.
- NOC O, CLB 7 for A (IELTS 6.0)
- CLB 5 for NOC B (IELTS 5.0)

※ CEC immigration receives the most invitations in 2020 and early 2021. (April 1 / 5,000 people / 432 points) 

Skilled Skilled Trades Program (FSTP: Federal Skilled Trades Program)

It is a federal immigration system that was newly designed and piloted in 2012 to accommodate immigration from people working in certain technical and technical occupations, particularly in high demand in Canada, and was the last of the three Express Entry programs to qualify for enrollment.

● Qualifications

  • English score of CLB 5 (CLB4 for reading and writing) or higher (IELTS speaking/listening: 5.0, reading: 3.5, writing: 4.0)

  • Full-time full-time employee with a Canadian employment contract of 1 year or more or an official Canadian-issued technical qualification related to the relevant technology

  • At least 2 years of full-time work experience (or equivalent part-time work experience) in the last 5 years

  • Applicable occupational groups (NOC B or higher must be in the following occupations)

- NOC Code 72: Industrial, Electrical, Construction
- NOC Code 73: maintenance, equipment operator
- NOC Code 82: Managers or Technicians for Natural Resources, Agriculture and Related Production
- NOC Code 92: Manufacturing, Processing and Utility Supervisors and Central Control Operators
- NOC Code 632: Chefs, Chefs
- NOC Code 633 : Butcher, Baker

Educational background is not required, but due to the nature of federal immigration, selection is made based on the Express Entry CRS score, so it can be used for the purpose of adding scores by relatively increasing academic background.

The FSTP, selected on August 6, 2020, selected a total of 250 people, and the lowest score was 415 points.
On October 16, 2019, 500 people were selected, so the score was 357, which is rather low, and there are differences in scores depending on the number of people selected.
