Express Entry

Canada is changing its economic immigration programs to give more opportunities to prospective skilled immigrants. Starting January 2015, skilled foreign workers will have access to Express Entry, which will cover Canada’s key economic immigration programs:

Candidates who are invited to apply for permanent residence under the Express Entry system will benefit from fast processing times of six months or less.Express Entry will also provide a pathway for skilled workers to connect with potential job opportunities in Canada prior to arrival.Express Entry will ensure that the candidates who are most likely to succeed economically – not simply those first in line – are able to immigrate to Canada.

How Express Entry Works

Image described below

Step 1

Potential candidates create an online Express Entry profile

Express your interest in coming to Canada as a skilled foreign worker. Starting in January 2015, create an online Express Entry profile and tell us about your skills, work experience, language ability, education and other details.

Before doing this, you will need to take a language test in English or French. If you were educated outside of Canada, you may also need to have your education assessed against Canadian standards. More information on language and education assessments is available online.

If you meet the criteria of one of the federal economic immigration programs subject to Express Entry, you will be placed in a pool of pre-screened candidates.

If you do not already have a Canadian job offer or a nomination from a province/territory, you must register with the Government of Canada’s Job Bank. Job Bank is an easy, online search tool that will help you get matched with jobs in Canada based on your skills, knowledge and experience.

Express Entry Pool

You will be given a score to determine your place in the Express Entry pool using a Comprehensive Ranking System that includes factors known to contribute to economic success (such as language, education, and work experience).

There will be regular draws of candidates from the Express Entry pool, inviting them to apply for permanent residence. Candidates with the highest scores, including those who have a valid job offer or a provincial/territorial nomination, will be invited to apply.

Your Express Entry profile will be valid for 12 months. During that time, you will need to update your profile if circumstances change, such as your level of education or language test results.

Important: Filling out an online Express Entry profile is not a guarantee that you will qualify for permanent residence. If you are invited to apply for permanent residence, information provided in your Express Entry profile will be verified at that time.

Step 2

Selected candidates are invited to submit an electronic application for permanent residence

You will receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence if you:

  • have a valid job offer from an employer in Canada (subject to the Labour Market Impact Assessment process in place at that time);
  • have been nominated by a province or territory; or
  • are among the top ranked in the pool based on your skills and experience.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada will process the majority of complete permanent residence applications received within six months or less.

Candidates in the Express Entry pool who do not receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence after 12 months can resubmit their profile and re-enter the pool if they still meet the criteria.

          You need to qualify for FSW first, and that requires a minimum of 6.0 in each ability. Therefore, it’s not enough.

      Express Entry is a ranking system. So if you qualify for one of the main economic programs, then you can input your profile under Express Entry. After that, it’s about how you rank against other applicants.

      If you need more information, contact our office to set up an appointment to speak to one of our consultants.

    I would like to include French as second language (currengly I have DELF B2 diploma), but I have not yet done the TEF, I will do it in February.

    Can I entry and submit my express entry profile with only the IELTS and later include the results of the TEF (in order to get the second language points)? Would be possible to do this kind of update?

    Now I have the key generated and I can proceed for Entry profile. I am confused if 6 band is must how it shows I am eleigible ?

      This could be because of different reasons; Experience in Canada or experience under certain occupations accepted under the Alberta program.

    • CICS Immigration Team says:

      you need to meet the requirement of one of the economic programs, such as federal skilled worker in order to apply through express entry. federal skilled worker program requires that you have 6.0 in all abilities. so the answer is no.

  16. Sierra says:

    Hi there! Should I register for the “TEF” or “TEF Canada” exam? The Government of Canada Website reads ““You must submit results from these TEF tests as proof of your French language skills: 1. compréhension de l’écrit, 2. compréhension de l’orale, 3. expression écrite, 4. expression orale.” (Four sections). However the TEF provides results broken down by “Epreuves QCM, Expression écrite, expression orale” where Epreuves QCM consists of “Comprehension écrite + Compréhension orale + Lexique/Structure” (Five sections). Merci en avance!

    Hi CICS Immigration Team,
    I have a multiple IELTS score like 1) R7, L7.5,S7.5,W5.5 and another 2) R5.5,L7.5,S6.5,W6, can I submit both the result to show my English ability in first OL is 6 or more in each ability.
    Please advise because this is happening with most of the people and we are confused.
    If this not ok then please come up with an idea to use the multiple IELTS result.

    • CICS Immigration Team says:

      No. Only results from one test is accepted.

  19. Raj says:

    Why do you accept only IELTS for language ability. In india its looks like IDP is done ng good business out of it..faling the candidate deliberately in any section so they can take the test multiple time ..what a shame.

    • random says:

      hi raj,

      I feel from my experience that IDP is doing intentionally for business.
      please try in british council, more reliable than IDP.

      I don’t advise IDP for ielts to any one.

      • satya says:

        well it does not bother with the council even the british council is same because i have written ielts general nearly 7 times and i was literally getting 6 overall but not getting individual either in writing or reading getting 5.5 remaining sections listening 7, speaking 6.

    Having a recent Master degree taught in English + previous TOEFL certificate, could this qualify me to apply for a permanent residency in Entry express?
    Having work contract or university admission, does it make any terms of difference in eligibility?

    Hi

    I have done my bachelors in dental surgery (BDS) from pakistan and also my FCPS in Operative dentistry. I have both the teaching (Assistant Professor in a University) and dentist (working as dentist in clinics and hospitals) experience. I have the following two questions:
    1. If i apply under the express entry in the 4011 University professors and lecturers code, would i be eligible to do so? Is a Masters degree requirement a must? (keeping in mind that BDS is actually a professional degree). What about any person who has done a minimum of BDS and not FCPS?.(Please note in my case i have also an FCPS degree, which is a specialization). wes has equated my BDS as : 4 years of professional study in dentistry and wes equated my FCPS in Operative dentistry as: 3 years of graduate dental education.Also would like to know how much points do i get on the education grid in Federal skilled worker program?

    2. Since in express entry 2015, all occupations under the noc 2011 list are open, Am I also eligible to apply as a dentist in code 3113? Is it necessary that i have a canadain dental licence exam taken before i can apply? Or what can be the hindrances in my case if i want to apply as a dentist?( I would surely want to get a license to practice dentistry in canada, but do i need any licenses right now to apply in this category?

    which of the two codes 4011 or 3113 should i apply in?

    Would really appreciate an earliest reply here on this forum.

    Thanks

    If my spouse is only homemaker is it mandatory for her to take IELTS.
    I am the person applying for Express entry.

    • CICS Immigration Team says:

      It’s not mandatory. However, it would improve your score if she can get the minimum of CLB5.

  103. Grace Kennedy says:

    Hi,

    We have started the Express entry PR process. My Fiance is waiting on his LMIA and degree transfer. I am on his application as a common law partner (We have the paperwork needed for this). The only thing I’m unsure of is if I need to do a language test and transfer my degree also? What are the requirements for spouses with this application process?

    Thank You
    Grace

    • CICS Immigration Team says:

      It is not required for the spouse/common-law to write a language test or have credentials assessed. It would add points to the EE application, but if you have an LMIA coming, then there is no point.

  104. Syed Rahman says:

    I understand ECA is only for primary applicant. However, if ECA for secondary applicant is also done, can the additional relevant points against her education add to my points? Moreover, if the secondary applicant wants to work in Canada, would it be required to show ECA then?

    Also, I understand reference letter for work experience is must. I was planning to have my wife apply as primary applicant. Out of the 10 yrs of experience she has been able to obtain reference letter for 7 yrs but they have not mentioned roles and responsibilities, just name, designation, period of service. Will it be accepted?

    Many thanks for your support in advance.

  198. James says:

    Hi cic team. When filling out the express entry application, if I put 1 year of foreign work experience, it says I don’t qualify, but when I change it to 2-3 years it then says that I do. Is this a known error? I mean, I have 14 applicable months of work experience, and the min requirement is 1 year, but it doesn’t accept it?

  199. tomas tarazona says:

    Hi, my scores at the ielts where 8,7.5, 8 and 8 I Am in the process of certifing throw a canidian legal company my degree and they say they are equivalents to a B A in business administration,how ever when I fill the form I dont have any state nomination and I dont have any invitation from any employer and the score it give me is around 300 points where the minimun is 461 and more, I read about the state nominations but almost all they requiere a better score than the one I have.

    The reason my score it 300 basicly is because I have never work at Canada and of course never study there, and I am trying to get there in a legal way.

    I also was checking to see if I can have go as a tourist and look for a job , get a LMIA and then go to the borders and then come back again, to gain some canadian working expereince and have a better score, but that option is ilegal and it take a few months to get a LMIA aprobal and it cost around US$1000 for the employer , which basicly is going to take me out of any employment process.

    The other option is just to fill the express entry anyways and start looking for a job on line throw the job bank and other services and hope to find an employer that is interested in sending me and invitation letter.

    Could you please let ne know what other option I might have?

    Best regards

    Hi! I read in your response that ECA is not required for spouse. My spouse is BE-Computers, and it seems the system has not calculated any points at all for his qualification… Is this normal or have i made a mistake in entering some details? Also if i am married but my spouse does not intend to join me in canada, and if our kids would be accompanying me…is it still mandatory for me to enter my spouse’s details in the form?

  236. Hiten says:

    Express Entry Profile got Ineligible

    13 Years of Experience,36 years,IELTS Overall Band Score – 6.5, Valid WES-Evaluation Report, 69 points

    1. On 14th March 2015 – My Express Entry Profile was marked ‘Eligible’ with Overal Score – 303 – I celebrated
    2. In the month of June I turned 36 years
    3. On 3rd July 2015 – The Profile was marked ‘Not Eligible’ with following reasons provided

    • not having a valid language test
    • language test results that are more than two years old
    • a language test score that is too low
    • not having enough relevant work experience
    • not having the required education level
    • not having enough funds

    My consultants said because of my age (36 yrs) the points got reduced and thus could be the reason for the profile to go ‘Not Eligible’

    Questions
    1. Why are the reasons mentioned all different and did not point about my age or a specific reason for making the profile Ineligible
    2. Are they looking for skilled and experienced worker? Then its obvious as experience increases the age would also increase/grow (Directly Proportional).
    3. How can one control his age? Why/How does age matter?

    Totally disappointed with the score/point system. Please guide me not sure what should I do now to make my profile eligible

    MANY THANKS

    Hi,

    I wrote my IELTS and got the following scores.
    Listening – 8
    Reading – 7.5
    Writing – 6.5
    Speaking – 7

    My CRS score was 400. If I had achieved a score of 7 in Writing, I would have attained a score of 458. Painful. I have requested for a remark for IELTS which takes between 6 to 8 weeks.

    My question. Can I create two EE profiles. One with an IELTS Writing score of 6.5, while the second one with 7(which might be the upgrade after the remark). Because with the Writing Score of 6.5 and CRS of 400, I would get an Invitation from Ontario, while with the Writing Score of 7 and CRS of 458, I would definitely get an invite from Canada.

    Then I would use the one which corresponds to my remarked IELTS and delete the other profile.

    I hope this is not wrong, as the TRF have a certificate number.

    Akin

    Hi!

    My Express Entry as Skilled Immigrant has been on processing. Regarding on the ‘Proof of Funds’, are the Canadian Visa Officer allowed to have a joint bank account? particularly if the joint is with mother. Is it really mandatory to show proof of funds even if I have a valid job offer and positive LMIA? Another issue, regarding on the certificate of employment from previous employer, is it okay if I didn’t provide at least one certificate? because I was working with this company for less than 6 months only, and this company really didn’t issue a certificate if their workers didn’t became a permanent full-time on their company.

    Thank you very much.

    I hope to hear a feedback from you soon.

  315. Hiten says:

    14 Years of Experience,36 years,IELTS Overall Band Score – 6.5, Valid WES-Evaluation Report, 308 Points

    Last Year
    ———
    1. On 14th March 2015 – My Express Entry Profile was marked ‘Eligible’ with Overall Score – 303 – I celebrated
    2. In the month of June I turned 36 years
    3. On 3rd July 2015 – The Profile was marked ‘Not Eligible’ with following reasons provided

    • not having a valid language test
    • language test results that are more than two years old
    • a language test score that is too low
    • not having enough relevant work experience
    • not having the required education level
    • not having enough funds

    My consultants said because of my age (36 yrs) the points got reduced and thus could be the reason for the profile to go ‘Not Eligible’. Advised me to write IELTS

    Current Year
    ———–
    I wrote IELTS again,also had my spouse write IETLS and now my Express Entry profile is active with 308 Points

    Again , my consultants keeps asking me to write IETLS to improve score to around 450

    I have told them that I’m not looking for a Journalist kind of job, why can’t they look at my skills rather focus on age and IELTS Band

    Please guide me.

    Questions
    1. Why are the reasons mentioned all different and did not point about my age or a specific reason for making the profile Ineligible
    2. Are they looking for skilled and experienced worker? Then its obvious as experience increases the age would also increase/grow (Directly Proportional).
    3. How can one control his age? Why/How does age matter? How CIC employees/staff
    4. Incase IELTS get expired after invitation / or when PR Visa is about to be handedover. WOuld the candidate still be asked to write IELTS? Come back from scratch??
    5. Incase Narayana Murthy, Ex-Chairman of Infosys wants to apply for a PR Visa for Canada, Would CIC ask him to write IELTS? Does Age factor matter? Shouldn’t his strength/skills only matter??

    Totally disappointed with the score/point system.There is definitely something wrong with the score point system.

    Please guide me how what should I to further?

  324. Jak says:

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I am a work permit holder working as a postdoctoral fellow for more than two years in Canada and more than one year in Ontario. I have a foreign Masters and PhD.

    Masters and PhD from Europe: I have got an equivalent Canadian Degree from WES.

    According to the requirements of CIC, applicants may need to submit IELTS score for immigration purpose. If I am correct, the eligibility criteria requires an IELTS band of 6 (each section).

    For these reasons, I took the exam two times and got the following scores:

    First time: Listening: 6.5
    Reading: 6.0
    Writing: 5.5
    Speaking: 8.0
    Band Score: 6.5 (i.e., Average)

    Second time: Listening: 6.0
    Reading: 5.5
    Writing: 6.5
    Speaking 7.5
    Band Score: 6.5 (i.e, Average)

    As we can see from the second exam, I have improved the writing section by 1 point, but I still hurt the reading section.

    Please note that my work on the postdoctoral fellow is on electrical, electronics and telecommunications domain where I usually work on mathematics and engineering problems. I think this affects me from getting good English score.

    Also I have more than 20 international technical published papers (IEEE papers).

    I am writing this letter to request the expert to help me on the possibilities to apply the any PNP program with the current IELTS scores. Is it possible to provide the full list of my published papers to compensate the 0.5 point loss of IELTS. Please also note that I also have other skills such as presentation, tutorial, and leadership and social skills which could possibly help to strengthen my application.

    Other information:

    Work Experience:

    Canada: 2 years as a postdoctoral fellow in electrical, electronics and telecommunications
    Europe: 5 years as a research assistant in electrical, electronics and telecommunications
    Africa: 2.5 years as junior electrical engineer in telecommunications

    Age: 35
    Financial status: More than 35000 CAD
    Civil status: Single

    Thank you very much for reading this long explanation carefully and providing me valuable information.

    Please note that I have already uploaded my profile with the old IELTS and I have 457 score by putting my work experience as “2241 – Electrical and electronics engineering technologists and technicians”.

    However, my profile is not eligible for PNP and FSW? The other thing is that does the requirement of the IELTS must be satisfied by one exam, or it could be obtained from the other. I mean in my case, the reading is 6 in one of them and 5.5 in the other, and the writing is 5.5 in one exam and 6.5 in the other? (If one takes the maximum scores from the two exams, the requirement will be okey)?

    Thank you for the explanation.

    Hello,

    Can you please tell me if I have already taken IELTS (Academic) and scored 7.0 band, will my application still be considered “acceptable” when the requirement is of IELTS (General). I was not aware of this before taking IELTS, so I want to apply on behalf of academic score. Also, it is known fact that IELTS academic is harder than general version. I took this test last year in March 2015.

    A quick reply would be highly appreciated.

    Hi Team,

    I have given my IELTS 2 times. First time i got L- 7.5, R – 6.5, W – 7.5 and S – 7.5. Second time I got L – 8, R – 7.5, W – 7 and S – 7.5. However, my 0.5 marks have been reduced in Writing. Can I apply with a combination of both the scores or taking the highest score from either of the IELS? example – Can i take 7.5 of writing from 1st exam and rest of the scores from 2nd exam?

    Regards

    Hello CICS Immigration Team

    I hope you are doing great. Speaking of immigration, i would like to ask two question regarding education. I have US Masters degree how do I evaluate it for immigration purpose or do I get any extra point for this. Currently I am doing CPA (certified public accountant) in Massachusetts. My second question, is there any benefit to have CPA certification for immigration purpose. I would like to inform you that originally I am from Bangladesh and now I am in OPT under F-1 student in USA. I would really appreciate it, if you address my concerns.

    Thank you

    I see that my Overall Score CSR score went down from 308 to 303.

    Specifically, I see CRS – Human Capital – Age went down from 65 – 60.

    This is very frustrating. CIC/Scoring System did the same thing last year immediately after 27th June(Birthday) and my Express Entry profile went inactive

    Questions

    1. Are they looking for skilled and experienced worker? Then its obvious as experience increases the age would also increase/grow (Directly Proportional).
    2. How can one control his age? Why/How does age matter ? How do CIC Employees/Staff control their age?

    Regards
    Hiten

    • CICS Immigration Team says:

      CIC’s reasoning is that the younger you are, the better chance you have at succeeding in Canada. Hence the age factor. You can’t control age, but you can control your language level.

  339. Sanjay Sarma P says:

    Hi CIC Members,

    Hi CIC Member,
    I have got the below mentioned scores in IELTS, Please let me know which provenance will accept my score.So that I can apply for PNP for the same and also enter into the express entry

    Listening – 6.0
    Reading – 5.5
    Speaking – 6.5
    Writing – 6.0
    Overall – 6

    Hi team,
    My IELTS score is over all band 5.5 . Reading 4.5,listening 6,speaking 6,writing 6,
    Do I qualify for express entry immigration for Canada .. It’s general module .. Plz advice am already in process of Immigration.. I need to know whether I have to re apply for exam ??

  341. Hiten says:

    Thanks for your responses

    1. Why do CIC’s think so “The younger you are, the better chance you have at succeeding in Canada?”. I was on the impression that “The more skills you have , the better chance you have at succeeding in Canada”. Skills come only with experience and experience is proportional to age. The lesser the age, the lesser inexperience you are Right?
    2. Any idea why ‘Job Bank’ that is linked to Express Entry profile does not have an option to upload resume.? How would an Employer get to know about an Employee’s deeper skills etc. without a resume?
    3. Should my son aged about 5 years need to write IELTS? and prove his language level too?

    Please correct me in my understanding. This would help me in making my final decision on whether I should continue with my immigration to Canada or not .(specifically if they are ONLY looking at younger people aged 18 to 25 , then I can discontinue rightaway)

    My question is, Can I apply for Canadian PR visa ? Is the Canadian Immigration system will accept my business degrees ? I am little bit confused with their education assessment criteria.

    Would you please give me some suggestion ?

    I hope, I will get an answer from you.

    Regards,
    Safat

    Hello – please could you let me know the definition of ‘spouse’? My partner and I have been together for 2.5 years, but do not live together. We’ve been advised elsewhere that we could build a case to prove we’re a couple (previous holiday receipts/ declarations from professional friends etc.) but I’ve not been able to find anything about this on the official website. We’d like to apply as a couple for Express Entry if possible.

    Hi.

    I am a registered Physical Therapist who wants to work and migrate to Canada. May I know if you have an idea if the TOEFL Score accepted by the Canada Alliance of Physiotherapists is also recognized in the Canada Immigration under FSWP,or PNP?

    Hi Team,

    Myself and my wife are both holding Master’s degree(ECA thru WES completed) and our IELTS Scores are 8 and 8.5 respectively. Both of us have more than 5 years of relevant experience in our respective fields.

    The CRS tool has indicated that my score would be 471 and my wife’s score would be 479.

    I have already created an express entry profile with me being the primary applicant and my wife as a dependent and it is in the pool.
    However, we were wondering if we can create another profile for the express entry with my wife as primary applicant and me as a dependent considering that her CRS is more than mine and chances of the her profile getting picked is higher?

    Regards,
    VG

    Hi,
    I’m wondering about foreign work experience.
    I have a year foreign work experience. To get points, it should be continuous a year full time work? Which means, that work experience should be continued in ‘one company’ or just continuous experience in a year?
    What about 8 months work experience in 2010, and 4 more months experience in 2011? It can be 1 year, but not gonna be counted because it doens’t mean ‘continuous work experience’?

  413. Sara says:

    Hello,

    I already had my Express Entry profile submitted but had to make some changes with the new questions being added for Canadian education. Meanwhile, I also received my PNP nomination and updated that question but the options are greyed out and I am unable to edit the response any longer. This is marking my profile incomplete and I’m not able to submit it. I already reported this technical issue but the response I got from CIC is of no help to fix it.

    I wanted to ask if you know other people facing such technical issues? And will it be a wise idea to withdraw my profile and start a new one? I read that it is advised not to create a new profile so I just want to be sure that it will not impact my application in any sense.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

      Communicating with CIC about these issues takes a long time to resolve. We recommend that you start a new EE application and contact your province to switch over and attach the PNP to the new Express Entry profile.

    Dear CICS Immigration Team,

    I recently cleared my IELTS exams with R:5, L:6, S:7 & W:7. Overall 6.5.

    With this do I qualify for the ‘Express Entry’?

    My profession is under NOC 4112 with experience more than 3 years and I am single as well. Could you kindly recommend for which province should I try for and under which Immigration Process?

    Also if CICS assist individuals like me than where can I reach you ?

    Looking forward to your prompt response.

    Thank you.

    • CICS Immigration Team says:

      No. Because you need a minimum of 6.0 to qualify for federal skilled worker, which is the first step to get into express entry.
