How Express Entry Works for Canadian Immigration 2017

The Canadian Government has gone ahead with a new system that will allow qualified immigrants to gain ‘express entry’ starting in 2015. This will help fill open jobs for which there are no Canadian workers. Express Entry which used to be known as Expression of interest will be an easier path to Canada that will pick immigrants based on the skills that Canada needs based on those identified by the Government as well as Employers.

Express-Entry-Immigration-2015Canadian employers would be able to bring in workers through an Express Entry system with a long term goal of remaining in Canada.

This will come into effect on Jan 1 2015, prospective immigrants apply to express their interest in coming to Canada. When they do so they will answer questions about their professional skills, education, languages spoken, etc.

The 2015 Express Entry Immigration Process & Rules

Step 1: Potential candidates fill out an online Express Entry form

Candidates who are eligible for the Express Entry program can complete an online profile which will include various details about themselves, including their skills, their language ability, education and previous work experience, amongst others. Candidates who successfully meet the criteria of one or more of the federal economic immigration programs under Express Entry will then be sorted into a pool of eligible individuals. These individuals will be ranked according to their chances of economic success, and the highest ranking candidates, along with those who have qualifying offers of employment or provincial/territorial nominations (who will automatically receive high rankings), will receive a formal invitation to apply for permanent residency. This way of doing things will allow Canada to pick the best possible candidates who are likely to go on to achieve success, rather than simply picking whoever is next in line. Candidates who do not have a valid job offer or provincial/territorial nomination must sign up to the Government’s of Canada’s Job Bank, so that he or she can be connected to relevant Canadian employers. Eligible employers will need to obtain a free Labour Market Impact Assessment via Employment and Social Development Canada for permanent residence applications. There is no guarantee that candidates who fill out an Express Entry profile will be invited to apply for permanent residence, as this will mainly be determined by their ranking and the other factors mentioned above (offer of employment, provincial/territorial nomination).

Step 2: The Government will invite successful candidates and permanent residency will be processed within 6 months

Those ranking highly in the pool (based on skills, experience, eligible job offers and relevant nominations where applicable) will then be invited to apply for permanent residency, and will have a total of 60 days to submit their electronic application. Electronic applications will be required to be submitted through one of the below programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) Canadian Experience Class (CEC) Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Most applications will be pushed through swiftly by CIC, with many expected to be completed within six months. Candidates who have applied for the Express Entry program but who are not invited to apply for permanent residency after a year may then resubmit their profile and re-enter the pool, provided they are still eligible for the program. This is to prevent backlogs and allow for quicker processing and turnaround times. According to CIC, the Express Entry program will allow faster and more efficient immigration services to skilled immigrants. The program will also enable the Canadian Government to respond faster to Canada’s evolving economic conditions and changing priorities, and will increase flexibility.

Under the New Express Entry Immigration Program:

• Canada will pick the best candidates who are most likely to have success in Canada. • They will improve the Job Bank • There will be 14 million dollars invested over the next two years • Qualified applicants should expect processing times of 6 months or less after they have been    invited to Canada.

  • kaushal Patel

    Hello,

    I have a dream to live in Canada. To fulfill that, I have completed IELTS on 2nd April 2016 with overall 7.5 bands. The details of each module is as below.

    Listening – 8.5
    Reading – 7.5
    Writing – 6.5
    Speaking – 6.5

    My other details are as below.

    Age: 32 years (DOB-2-July-1983)
    Education : Bachelor of Commerce & PGDCA (from C-DAC, Govt. of India)
    Experience : 8+ Years ( in Search Engine Optimization and Online Marketing)

    Wife’s Details are as follow.

    Wife’s Age : 31 Year (DOB-30-Sep-1984)
    Wife’s Education : Bachelor of Commerce
    Wife’s Occupation : House Wife
    Wife’s IELTS Score : Exam Not Taken

    Son’s Age : 5 Years (DOB-11-Nov-2010)

    You can see that I have different work experience than my education stream.

    I visited many Immigration consultant in Ahmedabad, India regarding express entry PR VISA in Canada. Some of them told me that you can apply even if you have different experience field than education. While some says that it’s not possible to apply for express entry if you have different experience field than education.

    Also some of them told me that it’s compulsory to give IELTS exam for spouse too. While, some consultant denied that spouse must need IELTS and they told that you can apply for express entry even if spouse don’t appear for IELTS.

    I am really confused. Am I eligible for Express Entry? If not is it possible to get PR (state sponsorship) for Ontario or Manitoba?

    Thanks for help in advance.

    Hi Vahe,

    1. Is this express entry only open to technical people, what about fellows with a Ph.D. and only academic teaching experience?

    2. Does Canada immigration also accept a great score of Academic IELTS test in place of the IELTS general?

    3. If you working outside of Canada, how do you scout for a job in the Canada and get employed while you not physically present?

    Thank you

    Writing – 5.5
    I intend to migrate to Canada for higher studies.I would like to know about the eligibility to get Canada Visa with these scores and with about 1.5 years of experience in IT, If yes, could you please let me know the whole process and what are the Universities/Colleges I can get into.
    Waiting to hear from you soon.

    Thank You

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Hello Ankesh. Thank you for writing to us. Canada is a great place to pursue your education. You will first need to find a school and a program that best suits your educational goals. You will need to apply and get an acceptance from the educational institution. You can find a complete list of Canadian institutions here http://www.esdc.gc.ca/en/post_secondary/designated_schools.page Each school has their own requirements for IELTS scores. Once you have your acceptance, you can contact us to help you obtain your Canadian study visa that you will need.
      Regards, Vahe

      • Ankesh Jain

        Thank you for the information.
        Well, I would like to know if i get to pursue my two years of education in Canada and want my spouse to be there in Canada. What is the process she can get her visa formalities done or is it possible or does she need to give any English Proficiency Test(IELTS)?

        I find it a bit difficult as I will be studying over there so she won’t be eligible for dependent visa,She is an IT Professional.

        Waiting to hear from you soon.

        • Vahe Mirzoyan

          Hello Ankesh. Your spouse does not need to take the IELTS exam. When you get your Study Visa she will be eligible to obtain an open work permit.

    i would like to know is ther any chances for me to have PR in canada, if i clear ielts i only worried abt my current profile.

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Hello Nishant. Your sales would have to have a technical component to it, and cannot be solely a commision-based salary. You do have another option if you received your MBA in Canada; that would be the Master’s Graduate program, provided you are willing to stay in the province of Ontario.

  • Edward

    Hello! I am from the Philippines. My application is Express Entry as Skilled Immigrant. I have a valid job offer and arranged employment from a Canadian employer.

    I have a working experienced which is related to the job offer as NOC code 5241.
    My work experienced as follows;
    August 2006 to March 2009 (Philippines)
    April 2010 to April 2012 (Philippines)
    June 2012 to June 2015 (Brunei)

    The situation is that, when I received a job offer from a Canadian employer, I resigned immediately from my previous employer. Honestly, I struggle in IELTS before I finally passed the exam. I was unemployed from June 2015 up to present for the reason of I am waiting for my papers to be processed. Does it will affect my application? Is proof of funds a mandatory requirements even if there is a positive LMIA?

    I hope to hear a feedback from you soon.

    Thank you.

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Thank you for writing to us Edward. Proof of funds is not a requirement when a positive LMIA is obtained.
      Regards, Vahe

    • Edward

      Hi Sir Vahe,

      Thanks for the reply.

      I just want to ask also, Do you think, for how long is the processing takes time? Do you think I can make it, Do I have enough time since my LMIA will be expired on July 18, 2016? Are they going to prioritize me, since I do have a valid job offer.

      Thanks.

      • Vahe Mirzoyan

        Hello Edward. In order to receive another work permit, you must obtain another favorable LMIA. Unfortunately, you will not be prioritized because you already have a job offer.
        Regards, Vahe

    • Edward

      Hi Sir Vahe,

      My application for Express Entry has been successfully transmitted in the pool of candidates. Right now, I’m waiting for the Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residency. My overall score is 931 points. Do you think, I have a chance to get invited immediately? Regarding on the submission of all the documents in the Canada Visa in my country (Philippines), Do you think they will prioritize my application since I do have a valid job offer?

      For how long is the processing of Immigrant Visa? Since right now, I almost completed with my requirements and ready for submission. Once I get invited I will book right away for the medical exam.

      Thank you.

      • Vahe Mirzoyan

        Hello Edward. From what you have written, it looks like you will have a good chance at receiving an Invitation To Apply for permanent residency. Having a job offer will not make your application get processed faster. The approximate processing time is six months.

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Thank you for writing to us Mehreen. IELTS is an internationally accepted language evaluation system. You would need to take the General program.

A study visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your studies are complete.

    As I understood from some feedback , I can start my application , then when I have the result , I can add later,, My questions:
    1- If I done my IELTS later and updated my opened application with result ,as a tourist or business Canadian Visa , if I came to Canada , will that help by any mean to ease the job finding process ?
    my NOC:
    2171 Information systems analysts and consultants
    2172 Database analysts and data administrators
    2- Paying MYCIC Application fees would speed up my application process ?
    3- How long it takes to complete my application if i didn’t manage a job offer ?
    4- will having a lawyer speed my process up ?
    5- If the employer doesn’t have LMIA , but I got a job offer , any exceptions other than listed on the website ?

    Thank you ,,

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Hello Ahmad. Thank you for writing to us. The level of difficulty in finding a job depends on many things. Sometimes being in the country helps. Paying your application fees does not speed up the process. Having a legal team take care of your case will certainly ensure that all the information that is being presented is correct and complete, and if an explanation is required, it will be done in a clear way so that the reviewing immigration officer is well informed.

I understand that minimum 6 is required in each module in order for one to be eligible. I am currently working in an IT field on work permit in the US and my experience is 8 years where as my wife has 3 years 10 months in Accounting/tax field, and she is currently not working as she is on dependent visa(already one year employment gap), so Shall i go ahead with express entry using her as a primary applicant OR will my profile have more weightage if I make the ILTES score again ?

        Hi Vahe,

        I was reading your comments about minimum IELTS score requirement. I think it varies for each individual to enter in the express pool. I checked as per the calculator given on the cic site and my minimum requirement is 27.5 from IELTS, means I need to score 7 in 3 section atleast 6.5 in one of the 4 modules of IELTS to get in the pool.
        I need to ask that if I score more in IELTS so will that be helpful to receive an invitation? or will it not matter if I score more than 27.5 in IELTS?

        Regards,

        • Vahe Mirzoyan

          Hello Rizwan. 29.5 is the maximum points that you can obtain from your IELTS score that will count towards your Express Entry.

Last year in the month of October i consulted an agency for applying for Canadian PR under express entry system with my wife and son. Since my son is just one and half years old, they told me to secure 6.5 bands in IELTS in each module if only I am going to take the test. And 6 bands in each module for me and 4.5 bands for my wife if we both appear for IELTS test.
    However, i couldn’t get the required bands (R-5, L-5.5, S-5.5, W-6.5) and my wife presently can’t appear for the test. The consultancy, when approached, again told me to get 6.5 bands. Will you please, guide me as to what is the exact bands requirement under EE system if only I appear for the test and what is the requirement if we both do?

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Thank you for writing to us Narinder. The requirements in order to achieve the maximum points would be for you to get a minimum of 6 in all the bands and for your wife to get a 4 in all her bands. If your wife does not take the IELTS, then you lose the potential points.
      Best regards, Vahe

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Hello Rona. IELTS is the only language certification organization that is accepted for Canada. If you are interested in finding a job, you must check out the job sites online that specialize in Canadian listings. Once you have a job offer, you can apply for a work visa. If you want to apply for permanent residency through the Express Entry program, then you must do well in your IELTS.

  • Edward Samonte

    Hello! I am from Philippines. I received a Job offer from a Canadian employer in British Columbia, Canada for the position of Graphic Designer via Federal Skilled Worker (Express Entry). I have a total of 8-9 working experience. I took the IELTS exam for the third time as my score S6.5 / L6.5 / R5.5 / W6.5. Do I have a chance to be eligible to get a PR and become immigrant in Canada? If not, where particularly in Canada do they accept my score? What are the alternative ways to be eligible?

    I hope to hear a feedback from you soon.

    Regards,
    Edward

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Thank you for writing to us Edward. In order to qualify under the Federal Skilled Worker Express Entry program in Canada, you must have a minimum score of 6.0 in each of the four IELTS categories. Without that you will not meet the minimum requirements to qualify. I strongly recommend that you put extra effort into your English language studies so that this is not the reason why you cannot pursue your dream.

    Hi.

    Me and my boyfriend would like to apply to express entry as a couple. We don’t have anything to prove common-law partnership, but we plan on getting married if we receive an invitation to apply. Our plan was to set our status as “married”, even though we still are not, and then if we receive an ITA, we marry and submit our marriage certificate (which would have a date later than the ITA date). Are we allowed to do this or would we be disqualified?

    Thank you!

    Hi, I received my IELTS scores(L-7.5,R-6.5,S-6,W-6) and thinking to search a job in Toronto with my skillset (DBA) which belongs to NOC 2172. I’m currently in India and thinking to search by getting Visitor visa or TRV because I think I will have more opportunities after landing there when compared being here. Please suggest.

    • Vahe Mirzoyan

      Thank you for your inquiry Mani.

      A TRV will not authorize you to work in Canada, however, being in Canada may improve your employment opportunities; coming to Canada on a Visitor Visa for the sole purpose of finding a job is not allowed either. Your situation is not straight forward and needs to be handled properly.

    Hi,
    I’m Mani from India. I got my IELTS scores as L-7.5, R-6.5, W-6, S-6 and recently created an EE profile. Since my overall score is less in EE, obviously I need a job offer to ramp up myself. Is it a right approach to get a Visitor or TRV visa and search a job in Toronto(BTW my NOC is 2172 – DBA) after reaching there? I don’t think searching a Canadian job will be fruitful if I stay in India. Kindly suggest.

    I am from India and I want my ECA done for express entry. I selected CIC option on WES, but it shows that my results will be sent CIC department. I read on CIC website that for express entry they don’t need the documents to be sent to them. So I messaged WES. They told me to confirm whether I want to go for Canada option or CIC option. It is confusing. Which option should I pick for Express Entry?

  • Mimi

    Hi I have question before I go to take IELTS general exam for Expres Entry. Is it required to send original IELTS result report to CIC, if CIC in the future gives me Invitiation to Apply (ITA) ? Or CIC only takes copies from Original report ? Because British Council sends only one original report with results and you can not ask for another original.

    • vahe

      Thank you Mimi for your inquiry.

      You have to submit the original copies of the IELTS test at the stage 2 of the application when applying for your PR. For EE online profile you only need to submit a copy. In order for me to give you the most accurate advice, I would need to learn more about your

      Hello,

      I have registered my application for Canada Express Entry under Federal Skilled Worker category. I am a bachelor with 4 years Engineering degree (ECA evaluated) and have more than 3 years of work experience (India and Middle East). My IELTS score is 8 (Reading 8, Listening 8.5, Speaking 7.5 and Writing 7.5). My application status is open and is showing a CRC score of 441. It concerns me that the lowest CRC score to be selected in the Express Entry pool draw is 450. What are my chances of getting selected with the present score? Is there any way I can improve my score? What is the procedure for getting a provincial nomination?

      Thanks

      • Vahe Mirzoyan

    My questions is: As I have applied with my partner we are listed as common law. However, we are getting married by the end of this month. In case we get selected, does this affect our application? I mean changing our marital status after we get seleceted from the pool.

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Anna,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Congratulations on the upcoming nuptials! By going and updating your information online to your application it will not have a negative impact on your selection. If you are still not selected from the pool even after your wedding has taken place, it is best to update your profile to reflect those changes. It is preferred that you have the most accurate information in your profile to avoid any complications going forward. MF

  • Adeel

    I have created my EOI profile. However, my points are quiet low i.e. 322. What chances do I stand for getting invited to apply? Are their good chances of getting provincial nomination or job offer from outside Canada?

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hi Adeel,

      Thank you for your inquiry. A score of 332 is decent considering you don’t have a job offer from a Canadian employer yet. With that being said, it is always recommended that you have a professional review your profile to ensure that you have calculated your points correctly as some applicants may give themselves too many or too few and in either case can have an adverse effect on their selection from the pool. If you would like any assistance, you can start by completing this form for me http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/ and writing your inquiries on the form attached.

    Hello
    Looking for advise please . I received an invitation to apply for PR via FSW program express entry last month . I submitted my PR application last month and my application is being processed.

    Although I am single at the moment but I intend to get married in 2 months . After getting married can I add my spouse to my under process PR application.

    1) I scored 473 points on Express entry to secure invitation to apply for PR .Now that I have applied for PR and my application is under process. If I add my spouse to the PR application (got married , change of circumstances) at this stage will it effect my application as potentially If I was to recalculate my score it would be lower than 473 now.

    2) Would my spouse in this instance need to take IELTS and have her Educational credentials assessed.

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Vishva,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, you have been misinformed. Everyone is required to take an IELTS test, unless they suffer from a physical or mental disorder that would prevent them from doing so…even if you have an approved LMIA, it does not make you exempt from taking the IELTS.

      Now, in order for me to advise you accurately on which score you need to obtain, I would need to know which Province/Territory you are applying for as they each have their own requirements. MF

          Thank you for your prompt reply. As mentioned earlier, although the information you have supplied me with gives me an idea of your eligibility, I would need you to complete the form for me…I would like to give you the most accurate advice possible.

          For your English proficiency, it is very important for Citizenship and Immigration Canada to see that the applicant has the ability to communicate in English at a level that is considered to be “above average”. With that being said, you can accumulate a lot of additional points in your overall scoring if you can improve your English language. MF

      Thank you for your inquiry. Based upon the information you have provided, it would really depend on which Province/Territory you are looking to settle in as each has different requirements for IELTS.

    Hi,
    I am a nurse with a bachelor’s in nursing degree from university in USA. I have 3 years of experience of working as a licensed vocational nurse and have just started working as a RN. I took my IELTS and have an average of 7. Is it required for my husband to take the IELTS as well?

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Priya,

      Thank you for your post. If your husband will be on the application with you, regardless of him being the Primary or Secondary applicant, you both will benefit from him taking the IELTS. It will assist in both the accumulation of points that will increase your chances of selection from the pool as well as increase his own chances of finding employment if he can achieve a 7 or higher.

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Gordon,

      Thank you for your question. Every applicant is required to take the English Proficiency test unless the applicant is suffering from a physical or mental disability then they are required to use the Language Calculator Tool provided on the cic website.

    Hi,

    Me and my wife both have IELTS score above 7. Both are eligible for immigration as per our eligibility check in CIC website and our occupation are listed in category “A” and “0”.

    My query is, who should become the primary applicant. Can we apply with 2 applications, in one, I can be the primary applicant and my wife being the dependant and in the second application, my wife can be the primary applicant and me be the dependant.

    Because we do not know who would have more prospects of having a job offer and better chances of getting an invitation.

    What if we both get the invitation.

    Please enlighten us on the above.

    regards,

    Deepak

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Deepak,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Although you have listed what Skill Level you and your spouse fall under, I do not know what is the exact occupation or if either one of you have a job offer from a Canadian Employer yet. My recommendation would be for you both to start applying for jobs online and see which of you has more options in terms of employment available, and make that person the Primary Applicant. MF

    Hello Sir,
    I have studied at University of New York in Tirana (Albania), 4 years programe, major of Computer Science, MsC Degree. I have tried WES evaluation, but i get the following warning message ” WES does not evaluate academic records from University of New York-ut ne Tirane”. Is this information accurate? Does this mean that i am not eligible to apply to Canadian Visa? Has anyone been in this situation? Please help me, i need a quick response.Thank you

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Eri,

      Thank you for your question. There could be 2 reasons as to why you have received this response; either because it is an American University recognized in Canada your are not required to have your transcript or degree accredited, or, that there is potentially an error and you were unable to continue. Please contact CIC directly at 1-888-242-2100 and double check. MF

      • eri

        Thank you very much for your quick response.
        I tried to phone CIC at the number above but it is not reachable from my country Albania. I also tried to contact them via [email protected], but the email was not sent.
        If it is not too much to ask for, can you please get that information from them directly. This is very important for me, cause i stuck with my application.

Could you please let me know that my Ielts score is Acceptable or not. Or is there any other way to go with this IELTS score in Canadian Express entry.

    Awaiting for your instant response.
    Thank you very much indeed.

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Muhammad,

      Thank you for your post. If you were to check the CIC website on the requirements for Express Entry, you would see that the minimum score is an overall 7 for Skill Level 0 or A, and a minimum of 5 for Skill Level B for the IELTS. I always encourage all my clients to do what it takes to ensure that they get that minimum score or more as it will not only benefit you when you apply but when you are here in Canada working/adapting. Every test center provides additional language classes for those who need them, I suggest you register for them and re-take the test once you feel there is a significant improvement. MF

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Sarim,

      Thank you for your post.

      Hello Tom,

So to answer your question directly, YES!!, it is possible and very easy to update your profile to include your wife’s ECA. Good luck and I hope you get selected soon! MF

  • Innocent

    Hello there. I submitted an Express Entry in January 2015 after meeting the minimum requirements. Since then I keep getting these emails from CIC telling me that my application status has been updated. However, after logging into my CIC account, I do not see any new information. I am getting confused.

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Innocent,

      Thank you for your inquiry. It is hard for me to give you an accurate answer considering I cannot see your profile and I do not know what the last updated document is as well as what time it was posted. It could simply be saying that your status has been updated and referring to the last log in you had where you have either added or completed new information or uploaded a document. If you require further assistance, I suggest you contact CIC directly by phone and ask about your status. MF

  • sudha

    Hi,
    My husband, he is a civil engineer. We are applying the job in Express Entry. Both are writing the exam IELTS General. My score is 6. My husband score is 5.5. My husband is a Primary applicant. He is eligible or not?

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Sudha,

      Thank you for your inquiry. I would strongly recommend that your husband take additional language classes to improve his English as it is one of the most important requirements to be selected. There are some provinces and territories in Canada that will accept him with a score that low, but that would mean that your husband as the Primary Applicant would be limiting himself in the selection process. Extra language classes are available through the IELTS testing facility, I would encourage him to register and aim for a score of 7 or more. MF

      Thank you for your post. Although it is not a mandatory requirement to obtain a LMIA from your employer, is certain circumstances where the applicant does not have enough points to qualify, we always recommend that they ask their employer to participate in completing one. There are many employers who do not wish to undergo this process because of the amount of work that it entails, but if you inform the employer that you have retained our professional services and that their involvement is limited because we will be doing all the work, they are more inclined to oblige. And to answer your second question, yes, you do need to have all of your academic credentials assessed if you studied outside of Canada or the US. MF

      Hello Jyoti,

      Thank you for your post. I have typed, erased, and rewritten my response several times because it is a lot to try and explain in a blog post.

      Hello Amit,

      Thank you for your post. The criteria you have provided me with demonstrates that you can potentially qualify for Permanent Residency through the Express Entry Program, I just need more information to be able to give you an accurate answer. I suggest that because this is a public forum I would not advise that you post all of your information here, but rather book a consultation with either myself or my wonderful colleague Anna, so that we may gather all of your information and see if you are eligible.

    Hi! I heard that Canada is accepting people without having IELTS under kind of sponsorship for NRN residencing Canada? Is it true? If it is then what sorts of sponsorship should be done? PLEASE REPLY AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE!!!

      Hello Sanjaya,

      Thank you for your post. I believe what you are referring to is under the category of Asylum or Refugee in Canada for those who are in need of protection or assistance as a result of the earthquake that has devastated Nepal. There is no IELTS requirement for anyone seeking Asylum or Refuge in Canada. MF

  • arun

    Hie this is arun ,I have done my graduation in Industrial Production engineering and my age is 24 and currently working as Executive production and earning around 50-60k for the last 2years. Iam planning to apply for express entry program but my major concern are:
    1. Is it good to skip a job here in india where iam getting decently good salary and come to Canada?
    2. What is the probability of getting job in Canada if I don’t get a job through job bank and get PR through express entry?
    3. Is it true that I heard as Canadian economy is not good and this is not the right time to go there as job market is very bad.
    4. Finally is it true that finding a job is easy in Canada if one has a PR visa?
    Please help me in this regards??? 

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Arun,

      Thank you for your post. I would not recommend that you leave your job in India until you are sure that you have secured a full-time permanent position here in Canada. The probability of you getting a job in your field is in your hands; the more that you apply to jobs through the job bank or various other sites, the greater your chances are of getting hired by a Canadian employer as well as posting your profile on the Express Entry program where a Canadian employer could potentially offer you employment. And lastly, our economy here in Canada is holding up a LOT better than many other countries considered to be “first-world” countries. Good luck on your search! MF

  • Usman

    Hi,

    I applied last year in FSW 2014 for NOC 2173 but my application did’nt make it to the cap. I am now applying for Express Entry and this time around I was thinking to apply in NOC 2171 instead of NOC 2173.

    Do you recommenced changing NOC ? The only reasons I want to change it that for 2173 a lot of people apply unlike 2171. By the way I did get a UCI on my FSW 2014 application when it was returned by CIC in April 2015.

    Thanks

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Usman,

      Thank you for your post. I cannot make any recommendations as I do not have the complete details of your case. You need to use the NOC Code that best suits the description of the position you are looking to fulfill through employment, not the NOC that you feel is better for your selection. Applying incorrectly can sometimes result in processing time delays or refusals. MF

  • Shreya

    Hi, I’ve a Job offer from an Employer in Canada.
    1. Is LMIA approval mandatory to avail points for Job Offer.?? Is my offer letter acceptable without LMIA approval.?
    2. Is it mandatory for my Spouse to take IELTS.?? As the IELTS test date we’re getting for him is after 2 months. So I’ll have to wait till then.
    3. I did Executive MBA of 1 year after Graduation in India, which according to ECA is MBA in Canada. so how much points shall I claim for it.??

    • Abhishek Mittal

      Hi Shreya, first of all congratulation for getting a job offer from Canada. i have read somewhere that it is mandatory to submit both job offer letter and LMIA. you can ask your future employer to send you LMIA. yes it is must for your spouse to take IELTS.
      i also willing to apply for PR to Canada. could you tell me how did you get job offer from Canada. i have also done MBA Finance. please please let me know how to get job offer.
      Thanks very much
      or you can call me on 09416383352 and we can clear our doubts by talking to each other regarding Express Entry System.

    • Mira Freiwat

      Hello Shreya,

      Thank you for your inquiry. The LMIA is not a mandatory requirement to apply for any program under Express Entry, but it is mandatory for a Temporary Work Permit. If your employer provides you with a LMIA for Express Entry and it is approved by the ESDC, then it will give you an additional 600 points that will contribute to your selection and invitation to apply for Permanent Residency. If your spouse is the Primary Applicant for Express Entry, then he is required to take the IELTS, if he is not, then it is still beneficial for him to take it as it will give you both extra points and boost your chances of selection as well as his chances of obtaining employment is he hasn’t secured a job in Canada already. In order for me to advise you on the total amount of points you are going to achieve on your application, please complete this assessment form.http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/

      Well I have the same problem! I tried 4 times until I was finally eligible and after a couple days I got an update of my cic and it said the profile is ineligible. I applied for another 3 times after and was ineligible. No CIC Officer knows what’s going on and everyone pushes the responsibility to another. Seems like the System pretty selects after Citizenship or something. Actually meeting all requirements for Permanent Residence funds, language, work history etc etc. with a total of 893 Points and I’m not eligible. Ya is right!

    I have recently submitted my CIC online application in FSW program on 27th Jan 2015. I mistakenly submit wrong financial value (bank balance $17000 whereas requirement for 3 members is $18260). After submitting my profile, system is showing my profile status “ineligible profile”. I am unable to update or delete my profile. Is there any way I can update my profile?

  • Umesh Regmi

    I have Master’s Degree in English Education (2005) and Sociology (2009) from Tribhuvan University,Nepal. My wife has also an M.A (English). I have been working as a college teacher for more than 7-years ,and a Program Manager in an NGO for 2 years. I have some research achievements as well. I had also been to the USA shortly for the research purpose. I have an IELTS date in February 7. Now, my question is : May I be eligible for Express entry PR to Canada even if I fail to score 6.00 in each category of the IELTS? What happens if I score less than this in any categories to my case? Please respond me clearly.

    • owen

      Hello Umesh,

      If you score less than 6.0 then it would be more difficult for you to qualify for express entry; if you do score 6.0 in each section then you likely will be eligible for express entry given your skilled work experience.

    Hi,

    I came to Canada as an international student. I completed my MBA in April 2014 from Newfoundland. I moved to Toronto in June 2014. Now I am working with a Canadian bank as an Account Manager since Oct. 2014. I want to apply for PR under express entry. Last time I took IELTS was March 2012. Do I need to re-take IELTS, even if I had education here?

    Thanks,

  • Neil Morphy

    Hi,
    i have already filled the online application on the express entry site and they evaluated my points as 935 points.

    Firstly, do you believe that is a good score to be selected for that program?

    Secondly, i am nominated from alberta province but i got only the 600 points from the LMO letter i have, i know that i am allowed for 600 points max in both channels. But under the nomination field it shows my case as pending and i dont know how to make it confirmed?

    • owen

      Hello Neil,

      Since the maximum score is 1200, your score seems fairly competitive, although it is hard to say for sure because express entry is a new immigration scheme.

In the meantime, I am curious to know if I could also launch my application under the express entry (new system) while my application is under review for the FSW 2014, considering my plan is to apply under the same NOC?

      For express entry there is no minimum score required. Your score will simply be compared to other applicants, and people with the highest scores will be successful.

Secondly do we need to give the proof of funds even under express entry?

    • owen

      Hello Dr. Thukral,

      Yes, for your and your husband you must show evidence of funds available to support yourself (according to CIC website this would be $14,720 CAD at the moment–subject to change) and if a referral letter is required then perhaps get a co-worker or someone in a management position to give this to you.

    Hi Owen,
    I have MSc in Mechanical Engineering with 3 years experience in mechanical related job. My degree result have been verified by ECA and I have also taken my IELT exam. I have average of 6.5 with minimum of 6 in each of the test. I want to submit application for the express entry that will come live in Jan. 2015, but my total point without job offer or province nomination is 368. Just wondering what my chances are?
    If I don’t get province nomination or job offer before the draw, do I stand the chance of been invited to apply for PR.
    or Should re-take my test of English to see if I can improve my point with that.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks

    • owen

      Hello Cane,

      Thanks for the question. For express entry, the total maximum number of points you can have is 1200. Since this is a new system, we can’t accurately predict at this point what your chances of success are, but given that you have adequate experience in a skilled occupation and passing IELTS scores, our lawyers would be able to capitalize on your strong points to help ensure you can obtain Canadian PR.

    Hi Owen,

    I am applying under CEC. Do the international students who have Master’s degree from Canadian University need ECA for bachelor degree if it was completed outside of Canada to claim skill transferability points for 2 or more post secondary degree + language score and 2 or more post secondary degree + Canadian Work experience?

    Thanks

    Hello sir,
    My wife doing msc in england in health care from university level 7. She had 6 band in each module is it possible we r apply for express visa rule or need to do ielts for spouse also

    • owen

      Hello Priya,

      Your wife will need at least one year of full time employment in a skilled occupation-if her MSc and field of experience could be categorized as “manager in health care” or an inspector in public health or occupational health and safety, then she may qualify for express entry. You would also need to write the IELTS if you wanted to apply under express entry.

    • owen

      Hello,

      Once you score at least 6.0 in each section of the IELTS, you will be eligible for express entry given that you have at least one year of full time employment in a skilled occupation. You should also look into registering with the provincial nursing college in the province you wish to practice in.

    • owen

      Hello Navdee,

      Although you don’t appear to have one year of full time employment in a skilled occupation, if you find a Canadian employer who is willing to sponsor you and go through the LMIA process, then you may be eligible to immigrate to Canada, and your spouse may be able to join you as a dependent. Please see http://www.visaplace.com/canadian-immigration/canada-permanent-residence/ for more information.

    Thanks in advance.

      Hello Asfak,

      Although pharmacists cannot apply under express entry, you could find a Canadian employer and then go through the LMIA process which is something we can definitely assist you with. You should also look into registering with the provincial organization which regulates the practice of pharmacy in the province you would like to immigrate to.

  • Alitib

    Hi,

    My sister wants to apply for Canadian FSW. Here is here case:

    Age is 42

    IELTS: Listening-6, Reading-6, Writing-7.5, Speaking-6.5… Band-6.5

    More than 10 yrs experience as Nurse in Saudi (been a Head Nurse too in Saudi’s Gov’t Hospital)

    With spouse in Celfone repair jobs (I don’t know if this qualifies as trade skill) and graduate of University degree in Philippines. And a child in her first marriage.

    One thing in the first marriage – It was not registered in the Government (NSO) and the divorce was made only through customary manner (tradition- a piece of paper signed by both that separated) I don’t know if they considered legally married and divorced or just Separated. Quite complicated on this part because that piece of paper is nowhere to be found now.

    While the current marriage is legally binding as this is registered in NSO.

    I am her brother who is already a PR and currently in Toronto.

    We would like to hear from you the options for my sister. Express Entry, or Family Sponsorship, or anything possible. We would like too if you can help seek job offer for the express entry.

    Sorry for the long enquiry. Thank you so much

  • Dear Sir

      Hello Saajan,

You will need to take the IELTS before you submit your application and obtain at least 6.0 in each section of the test. Feel free to contact us as we would be happy to help guide you through the complex application process.

    Hello ,

    I have IELTS score overall 6 in academic module(L-6, S-6, R-6, W-5.5). And I am professional broadcaster at state owned television since nearly 3 yrs. despite, I have also 4 years working experience on social work. Am I eligible to apply?

    • owen

      Hello Juana,

      You should have at least 6.0 in each section of the IELTS to qualify. Also, if you are a manager in your broadcasting company, then that is considered a skilled occupation, however, just being a broadcaster is not considered to be a skilled occupation. You should search for some potential Canadian employers and possibly obtain a Work Permit which we can help you do, and if you want to practice social work you should look into getting registered by the appropriate regulatory authority.

    • owen

      Hello Neha,

      Thanks for the question. Eligibility for express entry requires a minimum score of 6.0 in each section of the IELTS, so you should consider re-writing the test. Additionally, if you have been working as an accountant or manager in finance then those would be skilled occupations and you would likely be eligible for express entry.

Also, depending on your exact responsibilities in your occupation, you may or may not be eligible for express entry; however, a Work Permit is always an option, and you should try searching for potential employers.

In terms of your occupation in the IT industry, if you worked on software development or computer engineering then you would be eligible for express entry.

          A minimum of 6.0 in each section is required for express entry, but the IELTS is not required if you want to obtain a Work Permit. We would be happy to guide you through the LMIA process for a Work Permit, and you could certainly start searching for potential Canadian employers to help speed up the process.

      Hello Saurabh,

      Thanks for the question. You will require IELTS scores of at least 6.0 in each section in order to immigrate under most programs.

  • Shivani

    Hi,
    I am a dentist with one year two months of full time work experience. Am I eligible to immigrate to Canada via the express entry? As the profession is regulated, I would have to give a series of exams before I can be registered and allowed to work in Canada. So what are the chances of me being invited to apply without a Canadian job offer and a foreign degree?

    • owen

      Hello Shivani,

      You should first write the required licensing exams and look into the registration process with the appropriate regulatory agencies. Subsequently you should be able to immigrate and become a permanent resident. You should also take the IELTS and score at least 6.0 in each section as this is also generally a requirement.

    Hi
    i have 3 years nursing diploma and registered as nurse in Nepal with 5 yrs experience in my profession. my ielts academics scores are s 5.5, w 5.5, r 5.0, l 5.0. can i apply for express entry and which IELTS catagory is required under my profession, is it IELTS(GT) or IELTS(ACADEMIC)?

    • owen

      Hello,

      Generally, a minimum score of 6.0 in each category of the IELTS is required to immigrate to Canada. You should improve your IELTS score and then because you have a skilled profession you should be able to come work in Canada as a nurse. You may also want to ensure that you check with the provincial licensing authority so that you will be able to practice nursing.

    • owen

      Hello Samiksha,

      Generally, a minimum score of 6.0 in each category of the IELTS is required to immigrate to Canada. You should probably be taking the general IELTS given that you have already trained as a nurse. Also, you should look into getting licensed by the provincial nursing association in the province you’d like to practice in.

    • owen

      Hello Shafiqul,

      Thanks for the question. Generally, a minimum score of 6.0 in each category of the IELTS is required to immigrate to Canada, so you may want to re-write the IELTS. Apart from that you do have enough experience in a skilled profession so you could become eligible for Canadian Permanent Residency and subsequently Canadian citizenship.

Once you partner with us we will provide you with a complete list of documentation that will be required for express entry, but at this point you should write the IELTS and score at least 6.0 in each category, and you could also try to ensure that you have at least one year of full time work experience in a skilled occupation; please see http://www.visaplace.com/canadian-immigration/canada-permanent-residence/skilled-worker-program/ for more information.

        • owen

          Hello Gopi,

          Upon submission of the application you will need to include your IELTS scores in your finalized application. You certainly may qualify for express entry, although you should definitely seek our assistance considering that you are a bit old (based on the express entry age scoring standard).

    Second, kindly shed light to the clause – Points for CLB 7 or more on all first official language abilities, one or more under 9 – for skill transferability factor. Does it mean i will get “Zero” in this area because of my IELTS? or do they have a calculator to create a breakdown? My credentials has been evaluated by WES and i have more than four years of foreign work experience.

    Thank you.

        • owen

          Hello,

          Thanks for the question. The practice of law does not qualify for the express entry program, however once you are registered with the appropriate regulatory agencies and qualified to practice in Canada, then you could get a Work Permit which is something we can definitely help you obtain.

      Hello Rajni,

      Thanks for the question. Based on the information you provided, you and your husband don’t appear to be eligible for the express entry program since you must have an IELTS score of at least 6.0 in each category. Otherwise, your auditing experience will likely qualify as a skilled occupation for the purposes of this program. We would be happy to assist with this, and please see http://www.visaplace.com/canadian-immigration/canada-permanent-residence/ for more information.

  • Ravi R

    Hello

    I am from India, have studied masters degree from the UK in Computer Science (Software Engineering), after completing Bachelors in Electronics Engineering and have 3+ years of experience as a software engineer in Bangalore, India. I am 31 years old, single.

    I’m planning to move to Canada but they are bringing a new rule of express delivery. Is it not more uncertain to move to Canada than the current system? Am I eligible for the Express Entry? What are the constraints?

    I have few more queries:
    1. As I studied M.Sc. in England, do I still need IELTS?

    2. I have heard from many professionals who migrated to Canada that Canadian employers look if you have either studied in Canada or have Canadian work experience in order to even invite you for an interview. The question is not about migrating to the country. What if we have to settle with a survival jobs but not professional IT jobs which we are experienced in?

    Government is making all the efforts to get the people from other countries to fill the list but what if the employers don’t want to interview you because you have no Canadian experience? Survival jobs?

    These are certain factors making me reluctant to plan further.

    Please advice me.

    Many thanks

      Hello Ravi,

      Thanks for the question. You will need to take the IELTS, but apart from that it appears that you are eligible for the FSW program and we would be happy to help with this, and you would not need Canadian experience to immigrate under this program, and that is unrelated to the requirements of individual employers who may require you to have Canadian work experience.

      Hi,

      Essential steps have already done. My score is 330. I desperately need a Job Offer to boost my chances. Here are my questions:
      1. I do not have Permanent Residency in Canada yet, provided that I am qualified for the position and the employer responded, how would i ask them to issue a job offer for me?
      2. What is that job offer really? Is it a letter only stating their interest or an initial contract?
      This is the least I can do for now – that is to wait. But I need enlightenment on the issues stated above. I appreciate your resoonse.

      Boo

      • Mira Freiwat

        Hello Boo,

        Thank you for your post. In order for it to qualify as a valid Job Offer, your employer would need to state your Job Title and details about your position (tasks and duties you need to fulfill in that role) and they would also need to state that the position being offered is for Full-time, Permanent, Paid work.

      Hello Dola,

      Thanks for the question. You and your husbands qualifications are certainly impressive, and there may be a variety of options available to you. If you are planning on working as a physician and your husband plans on working as a pharmacist, then you will need to be certified by the appropriate provincial regulatory authorities which will probably be your main hurdle, after which point it should not be too difficult to get a job offer and a Work Permit.

    • owen

      Hello Maria,

      There are jobs that require nursing qualifications but do not require provincial registration, and these are mainly administrative, non-clinical jobs. If you want to have clinical duties as a nurse, then you will need provincial registration. It would be best if you call us to setup a consultation so that we can better assist you in this matter.

  • Hi! I had my kid born in CA ten years ago (while I stayed as a tourist, we can stay in CA for six months without visa with our passports) and she has got her Canadian passport already. However, we still want to apply for immigrant visa. Maybe I will apply through FSW if I can still make it before the end of the year. Do you think my application would be ‘affected’ if they see that my daughter was born in CA? or if my child’s citizenship would be “affected”.

    Moreover, are there any English benchmark for the coming Express Entry program? still score of 6 for each area of IELTS?

    Your kindness in helping me out with the above questions would be greatly appreciated!

  • Lerrey

    Hi Owen,

    I’d like to ask regarding the things I should prepare just in case I’d be offered a job from an employer after making a profile on the Express Entry system?

    I’m just wondering if aside from IELTS and passports of my husband and 3-yo son, do we need to meet the minimum fund requirements since you already have a job waiting for you in Canada?

    I am an insurance claims officer for the past 10 years, currently holding a General Insurance Tier 2 certification. I believe my work experience falls under 1212 on the list.

    I hope you could enlighten me. Thank you.

  • Bose vs

    How does this Express Entry system works.

    Will the points be raised or shuffled more within the current system.

    It is a known fact for Indian Students who’ve followed 3yr UG+2yr PG wouldn’t be credited as equivalent, even if those are from recognized institutes from WES.

    Does the express entry works, by the employers selection of candidate from a pool or the government chooses them, as statistics/vacancies open…or…

    What are the fail-safe benefits of the system to immigrants.

    If employers are directly selecting candidates from a pool, there are good chances of exploitation regarding wages and such. Earlier people had a chance to apply and if qualified, they had the opportunity to be a part of the Canadian System, Now, I feel like items arrayed in market and people come-by and look at it, and gauge it. – then choose to whether to buy or not, kind of demeaning, I think.

  • B.Eng

    Hello there,

    I recently completed a bachelor of engineering in a Canadian university. I obtained a Post Graduate Work Permit and I am currently working a full-time permanent engineering job (NOC 2133) in Alberta. I have the following options:
    1- Apply through the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) under the strategic engineering category (NOC 2133). (processing time: 14 months for nomination + 17 months for federal application = 31 months.
    2- Apply through the ANIP under the Skilled Worker category. Processing time: 25 months for nomination + 17 months for federal application = 42 months.
    3- Apply through CEC. Processing time: 6 + 3 months = 9 months.

    I have 31 months left on my open work permit.

    My questions are:
    1- Should I apply through option#2? (since I have all the requirements and just enough time on my work permit)
    OR should I wait and apply through option#3 (since it takes less time)
    OR should I do option #2 and in Jan. 2015 do option #3 too?
    2- If I get a new full-time temporary contract engineering job (more than 15 months contract) instead of a full-time permanent engineering job, does the contract type affect the CEC ranking? Is a permanent job associated with a higher rank than a temporary contract job?
    3- Even though I have an open work permit (Post Graduate Work Permit), would my employer need to get a Labour Market Opinion when applying through CEC?

    Please let me know.

    Thank you.

  • Antonio

    Hello.

    I would like to confirm if the funds I should have proof of can be in property. Because, in my case, I don’t have the funds in Cash but if I receive the Permanent Resident I will sell and go to Canada. Is it possible to show home equity with a property valuation and a mortgage letter from the bank at the time of application?

    Then, when it is time to land we show the liquid funds in our accounts after the sell.

    Please confirm.

    Thanks and regards.

      Hello Antonio,

  • Juan

    Hello.

    Is it better to apply for the Express Entry System in 2015 or the current System now? I’m interested in moving to Canada and build a better life but would prefer to arrive with a job already arranged. Is this possible in the current system or the new one coming in 2015?

    Thanks and regards.

    • owen

      Hello Juan,

      Depending on your particular case, it may or may not be advantageous to begin the process now, as no one can predict with certainty how quickly you will be able to move through the new system in 2015. That being said, we would be able to speed up your case as quickly as possible by submitting a very strong case, but in order to further assist you, we will need some more information.
