Express Entry is an immigration system implemented by Canadian immigration authorities ("CIC") on January 1, 2015 which administer skilled worker applications under Federal Economic programs. This incorporates the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Skilled Trades Program the Canada Experience Class and certain parts of the Provincial Nominee Program.
