Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) releases an annual report on Express Entry every year, the 2022 version being the latest.
Express Entry is the name of the application management system used by the federal government in Canada to attract foreign skilled workers to this country who are seeking permanent residence (PR).
Launched in 2015, the Express Entry system contains three different core programs: the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
It is also worth noting that this system does manage a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), although PNP candidates must also be eligible for at least one of the three programs noted above to come to Canada via Express Entry.
