Express Entry Job Offer Requirements


There are different requirements for Express Entry job offers depending on the Express Entry program for which you apply.


Federal Skilled Workers and Canadian Experience Class


A valid job offer has to be made by one employer; offer continuous, paid, full-time (at least 30 hours a week) work for at least on year; and be in a job that is NOC skill type 0, or skill levels A or B.


The job offer must also be made by an employer with a new positive LMIA that approves the offer and names you and your position.


OR


If you’re currently working in Canada in a NOC 0, A, or B on a work permit that was issued based on an LMIA and:

  • you’re working for an employer listed on your work permit

  • you’re authorized to work in Canada on the day you apply for a permanent resident visa, and when the visa is issued; and

  • your current employer made you an offer to give you a full-time job for at least one year if you’re accepted as a permanent resident.

OR


If you have a valid work permit for a NOC 0, A, or B that is exempt from needing an LMIA and:

  • you are currently working for an employer specified on the work permit;

  • have one year of full-time work experience (or an equal amount of part-time work) for that employer; and

  • have a valid job offer from that employer for at least one year after we issue your permanent resident visa.

Everything You Need to Know About the Federal Skilled Worker Program

Federal Skilled Trades Workers


A valid job offer has to be made by up to two employers for continuous, paid, full-time work (at least 30 hours a week) for at least one year in a skilled trade occupation (jobs with 2016 NOC codes that start with 72, 73, 82, 92 as well as 632 and 633).


It also must be made by the employer(s) who have a new positive LMIA that approves the offer and names you and your position.


OR


If you’re currently working in Canada in a skilled trade job a work permit that was issued based on a positive LMIA, and:

  • you’re working for an employer listed on your work permit

  • you’re authorized to work in Canada on the day you apply for a permanent resident visa and when the visa is issued

  • your current employer(s) offered you a full-time job if you’re accepted as a permanent resident, in a job that is in the same three digit level of the NOC as your current job, for at least one year

OR

  • are currently working for an employer specified on the work permit

How the Express Entry System Works


Express Entry Job Offer Points


A job offer letter can earn between 50 and 200 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System. The number of points you will receive depends on the type of job you were offered.


Express Entry Job Offer Letter


We often receive questions about what makes a job offer letter valid for Express Entry. Generally, a valid offer is for a job that is full-time and non-seasonal, for at least one year, in a skilled job listed as Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A or B on the National Occupation Classification list.


The job offer must be in writing and must outline the details of the job offered. The letter should include your pay, any deductions, your job duties, and the conditions of your employment (e.g. full-time, part-time, etc.)


In most cases, a valid job offer must be supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), which the employer would need to apply for through Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).

How to Fill Out Your Express Entry Profile

Express Entry without Job Offer


In most cases, you don’t need a job offer to be eligible for Express Entry. In general, these are the in which you would require a job offer:

  • If you apply for the Federal Skilled Trades Program; this program requires you to have a valid job offer for a total period of at least 1 year or a certificate of qualification in that skilled trade issued by a Canadian provincial, territorial or federal authority

OR

  • If you are eligible for either the Federal Skilled Worker Program or the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and do not have enough money to support yourself and your family in Canada.
