Canada Express Entry:
What Should You Expect!
Because you dream of a better life for your family, you plan to apply for Canada permanent residence. You heard about the Canada Express Entry. What is it? What should you expect from it? Continue your read.
Canada Express Entry is not an immigration program.
Make no mistake: this is not one of the many Canada immigration programs. Implemented in January 2015, Canada Express Entry is a system used in receiving and processing applications for permanent residence. As the term implies, it aims to make the entire immigration process faster.
Having the dream is not enough.
It’s not enough that you have the dream to immigrate to Canada. You have to plan everything before you apply through the Canada Express Entry. Ask yourselves these questions:
- Why do I want to go to Canada? Specific objectives, please.
- How do I plan to settle in the country?
- Do I have the funds necessary to apply for Canada permanent residence?
- Should I go first or should I already bring my family with me?
- Which province should I settle?
- How can I obtain a job offer?
- What are the challenges that I (and my family) should expect to face?
Remember, you have to be realistic with your questions and truthful with your answers. Don’t paint a very beautiful life picture in your mind — at least not yet. It takes hard work and commitment to be successful.
