    2. Read the requirement details below for each program
  • Documents needed

    You will need at minimum the following for your profile;

    2. Language test results
    3. Education report
    4. Provincial nomination
    5.  Canadian job offer

    1. Update any information
    2. Check your score

    Create online profile

  • Submit application

    Use your Express Entry online profile to submit your application within 60 days.

    Most applications are processed within 6 months.

  • Express Entry Process


    The federal government has created an online system to manage the intake process of applications.  This new application has replaced the previous ‘first come, first served’ process.

    Based on the program that you are using for express entry, you will need to meet the requirements prior to submitting a self-assessed profile online to the Express entry pool.  Once your profile is submitted, your application will be placed in a pool of pre-screened candidates and scored based on core factors such as: skills, work experience, language ability, education and other details.

    The top scoring candidates are informed every few weeks.  Once the candidate is informed, the application must be submitted within 60 days to one of the programs below.  Failure to submit the application within 6 months will make the request invalid and the process must be repeated.

  • Comprehensive Ranking System


    The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a points-based system based on your self-assessed online profile. All candidates submitted at the same time are ranked against each other. The system ranking is prioritized to those who contribute to economic success such as language, education and work experience.

    Points are awarded to a maximum of 1,200 points. The highest ranking applicant will be offered an invitation to apply for permanent residence during draw periods.

    Having a job offer prior to submitting the online profile will increase your chances of selection. Job offers in the managerial field are worth 200 points, while other job offers are worth 50 points

    Your CRS profile will be valid for 12 months, during which time changes can be made to your profile (such as language or education level)
