Candidates entering the Express Entry pool need to first fulfill the requirements for one of these three programs managed by Express Entry.

Once applicants enter their application in the pool, their ranking is determined on the strength of various factors such as their education, language ability, and work experience. Based on these factors, candidates are ranked as per Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which assigns a score out of 1,200.
