Processing federal skilled worker class e-applications received on or after January 1, 2015

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

This section describes how to process electronic applications for permanent residence (e-APRs) that are submitted by federal skilled worker class (FSWC) applicants who were invited to apply through Express Entry.

FSWC e-APRs are subject to the Express Entry six-month processing standard (80% of applications in six months or less).

The FSWC is prescribed as a class of persons who are skilled workers, who may become permanent residents on the basis of their ability to become economically established in Canada, and who intend to reside in a province other than Quebec.
