The Express Entry System is not a new program necessarily; instead it is a new filter on an old program. The government is now limiting the amount of people who can apply. They assess everyone who wants to use the system and choose ‘the best and the brightest’. 85% of the people on the express system are already in Canada, either working or going to school, so it may not work well for people outside of Canada.
For the Express system to work for you, it would be best if you are quite young, have at least a 2 year college degree, and speak either English or French. Look at five elements. Watch the video to see what those elements are.
