Express Entry (EE) is an electronic online immigration application system. It allows people to submit a profile and be considered as a skilled immigrant. Candidates with the highest rankings are invited to apply for permanent residency.
Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada herein referred to as IRCC uses Express Entry as online system to manage applications for Skilled Workers. You can not apply directly in the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Express Entry is the only way you can apply as a Skilled Worker.Provinces and territories also select candidates from the Express Entry Pool in order to meet their local labour needs.
Express Entry is an online system to manage applications for the following three economic immigration programs:
Skilled workers are selected based on their skills and ability to contribute to Canada’s economy. Federal Skilled Worker applications are assessed based on an applicant’s ability to become economically established upon immigration to Canada.
Your first step is to check your eligibility for skilled worker program and also for Express Entry. We can assess your eligibility for theses programs. Please complete our free online immigration assessment form. There is no cost and no obligation to fill this form. This will enable us to assess your scope for Canadian immigration. All information collected through this form is used for your immigration application assessment only.
We would assess your application against specific eligibility criteria. You can hire our services if you are deemed to have met the eligibility criteria. We would then submit your profile into Express Entry pool. If your profile is accepted then it will be in the Express Entry pool for up to 1 year. We would monitor your profile up to 1 year or up to the issuance of an “invitation to apply” (ITA).
Those candidates whose profiles align with the identified needs of the government, as well as, that of certain Canadian employers, will be issued an “invitation to apply” (ITA). Only those candidates who receive invitations can then proceed to apply for permanent residence.
You can contact us if you know you are eligible for Express Entry or if you have already been issued an ITA.
