As of January 2015, IRCC has a new electronic system called Express Entry to manage applications for permanent residence under certain economic immigration programs.
Potential candidates can complete an Express Entry profile at any time. Note that there is no deadline to complete a profile, and there are no caps on the number of candidates that will be accepted to the pool.
Draws to invite candidates will take place regularly over the course of each year, and top-ranking candidates will be selected from the Express Entry pool.
If a candidate is invited to apply, they will have 60 days to submit a complete Application for Permanent Residence online.
