Are you applying to immigrate to Canada through the Express Entry system? There are three immigration programs under Express Entry, which include the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and the Canadian Experience Class. The first step in the Express Entry application process is to determine your eligibility. The Government of Canada has a set of questions you can answer to determine whether you’re eligible for this system. This questionnaire will take you approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Once you determine your eligibility, the eligibility tool will send you to your online account to fill out your Express Entry profile.
First, you must sign in to (or create) your Express Entry account. You must:
Follow the instructions to create an account (if you don’t have one).
Enter your personal reference code when it prompts you to (only if you have one).
Enter your personal details.
To complete your profile, you will need:
Information from certain documents (for example, language test results)
Your National Occupational Classification (NOC) job title and code
How do I complete my Express Entry online profile?
There are a number of different fields and required information you must include in your Express Entry online profile. For those who have never completed these forms before, this can seem overwhelming and intimidating. If you’re seeking some further guidance and advice, watch Jade’s step-by-step videos below.
If you’re eligible, the Government of Canada will accept you into their pool of candidates. You’ll then be ranked in the Express Entry pool using a points-based system. Your score is based on the information in your profile. You can check your score here. Invitations to apply will be sent to the candidates with the highest scores in the pool. If you are invited to apply, you will have 60 days to submit your application for permanent residence.
