This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC 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.
