Canadian Express Entry/Federal Skilled Workers Program-How to Immigrate to Canada

Express Entry manages applications for three key Canadian economic immigration programs:

Federal Skilled Worker Program
Federal Skilled Trades Program
Canadian Experience Class

Provinces and territories can also recruit candidates from the Express Entry pool through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) to meet local labour market needs.


If you’re eligible to immigrate under one of these federal immigration programs:

• You will be placed in a pool with others who are also eligible.

• You will be ranked with others using several factors such as your skills, experience, education and other factors.

• You will get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to a specific program if you are a top candidate. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) conducts Express Entry draws at regular intervals (usually every two weeks). In these Express Entry draws, candidates above a certain rank are invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

• You can apply online for permanent residence when you get an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Invited candidates are given 90 days to submit an online application for permanent residence including all supporting documentation.



STEPS TO CREATE AN EXPRESS ENTRY PROFILE

1. Use the Come to Canada online tool to know if you're eligible for Express Entry. The tool will generate a reference number at the end. If you get a positive result from Come to Canada tool, it will send you to your online account to fill out an Express Entry profile.

You need to score at least 67 points out of 100 to be eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program. You can manually calculate your points using the six selection factors as outlined on CIC’s website.


The following are important requirements for entering the pool:

*Language:

You must:

• meet the minimum language requirements for your eligible category. All the skilled immigration programs that are part of the Express Entry system require applicants to prove their knowledge in at least one of Canada’s two official languages.

• provide your language test results from a designated agency.


*ECA:

Complete an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) through one of the designated agencies. Applicants who were educated outside of Canada should have their certificates assessed in order to ensure that their foreign education is equivalent to a similar Canadian education. The assessment is NOT mandatory if:

• The applicant is applying under the Federal Skilled Trade Program.
• The applicant is applying under the Canadian Experience Class.


*Skilled Work Experience

You need to have at least one year continuous, full-time (at least 30 hours of paid work per week) or equivalent part-time work experience in an occupation that is categorized under NOC A, B or 0 in the past 10 years. Check the National Occupational Classification (NOC) to learn the skill type of your work experience.


2. You can then create your profile if you are eligible. Getting into the pool doesn't mean that you will be invited to apply for permanent residence. You'll be invited only if you're among the top ranked in the pool based on your skills and experience. You will be ranked in the Express Entry pool using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System. The CRS gives you a score from the information in your profile, including your skills, education, language ability, work experience and other factors. You can calculate your CRS score here to know your projected CRS score.


---You can stay in the pool for up to 12 months as long as you meet the criteria for one of the federal programs. You should update your profile anytime as your case changes. If you are not invited to apply for permanent residence within 12 months of submitting an Express Entry profile, you can submit a new profile. If you still meet the criteria, you will re-enter the pool.



OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

* If you get an invitation to apply, you can apply for permanent residence. When you apply for permanent residence, you will also need to meet eligibility and admissibility requirements under Canada's immigration law. According to IRCC, all complete applications will be processed in six months or less.

*After you get an Invitation to Apply (ITA), there are other requirements that you must meet before you submit your Permanent Residency application. They include:

- Proof of Funds: You must show that you have enough money to settle in Canada. If your spouse is coming with you, you can count money you have together in a joint account. You may be able to count money in an account under their name only, but you must prove you have access to the money.

The amount of money you need to support your family is set by the size of your family. To calculate the size of your family, you must include:

*Yourself

*Your spouse or partner

*Your dependent children and

*Your spouse’s dependent children

Funds must be readily available to you. For example, you cannot use equity on real property as proof of settlement funds.


- Medicals: You and all your dependents (whether accompanying or not) MUST undergo a medical test. The medical test must be conducted by a doctor on the list of CIC designated panel physicians.


- Police Clearance Certificates: Police certificates are mandatory for each country (except Canada) where an individual has spent six months or more in a row within the last 10 years since the age of 18. PCC is required for the Principal Applicant, spouse and dependent children 18 years of age or older (including non-accompanying).

For the applicant’s current country of residence, the police certificate must have been issued no more than six months before the submission of the e-APR. For countries in which the applicant no longer resides, the police certificate must have been issued after the last time the applicant lived in that country.

-Reference Letter

-Passports/Travel Documents

Read the CIC checklist for more details.



*Read this post to know the estimated cost for the whole process. Kindly note that this is just an estimated cost. The final cost depends on a number of factors such as the number of times you write your IELTS test, the size of your family and some other factors.


I wish everyone the best!
