- The first step is to create a candidate profile online. Profiles may remain in the candidate pool for up to one year. If, during this time, any of your ranking factors change, you must ensure you update your profile in the candidate pool.
- If you do not currently hold a qualifying job offer you must register with the Canada Job Bank. Candidates are encouraged to promote themselves to prospective employers in order to increase their chances of being invited to apply.
- Draws from the candidate pool occur every few weeks. If selected, you will receive an ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Permanent Residence. You will have 90 days in order to provide Immigration with all the necessary information and documentation so that the final stage of the Permanent Residence process can take place.
We will guide you from the very first step till you land in Canada and make sure you will not have missed any timeline.
Once your application is complete, IRCC’s (Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada) goal is to take final decisions on complete applications received under Express Entry in 6 months or less in 80% cases.
