For entering in the program one is required to create a profile online with all the credentials required. After creating the profile, your profile is then added to the Express pool with all the other candidates profiles. If a profile is selected by the eligible employers or by Canadian Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) then the respective profile is given 600 CRS points for provincial nomination or 200 CRS for job offer. After all this process then top ranked candidates are given an Invitation To Apply (ITA) for Canada PR visa.
Step by wise step is as follows:
Every Province in Canada has their own specific requirements for allowing an immigrant to live and work for example for Ontario there is a grid of 400 points while Saskatchewan has a score grid of 40 points out of 100 points. If a Province has nominated you under their Express stream, then you have to update it in your Express profile in order to get extra point in the ranking system.
