Ask Jennifer: What are the five elements in the Express Entry System?

The Express Entry System is a filter to select good applicants for immigration.

There are five very important elements to this system that will determine whether you are chosen or not.

  • Age
  • Education
  • Language Proficiency
  • Canadian work experience
  • Overseas work experience

The most important element is language proficiency. If you are not fluent in either French or English, then the Express Entry System is not for you.
