    Applying Under the Express Entry


    As of January 2015, the Canadian Government has implemented a new method of processing candidates in Federal Skilled Worker Class for immigration to Canada known as Express Entry. The main aim is to speed up the process, as candidates who apply under the Express Entry will receive a response within 6 months only after submitting the application.
