For a number of reasons, Express Entry is well-liked. First off, the process is one of the quickest ways to become a permanent resident of Canada; Express Entry’s processing time is only 6 months, which is the service standard. Second, applicants can include their spouse, common-law partner, and children in the same Express Entry application.

If you are a young skilled worker with a high level of education and proficient English or French, Express Entry is a fantastic option.
