·       Wish to take up permanent residence in Canada.

For eligibility, a minimum of 1 year’s skilled work experience in Canada – in the previous 3 years before applying to the Express Entry – will be required.

The Canadian work experience must have been gained while in the country on a temporary resident status with the authorization for work in Canada.
