Changes To Express Entry System - As Of June 7, 2017Express Entry is Canada’s flagship application management system for key economic immigration programs, including the Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program.

Programs managed through the Express Entry system attract high-skilled foreign workers who want to live in Canada permanently and whose in-demand skills are needed by employers across the country to help build businesses and grow the economy.

Express Entry remains unchanged until the improvements are implemented on June 6, 2017. At that time, Ministerial Instructions with further details will also be published in the Canada Gazette and on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website. [Source]
