- a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program

Kindly go through the previous parts (PART 1, PART 2, PART 3, PART 4, PART 5 and PART 6) of this thread to know more about the Canadian Express Entry/Federal Skilled Workers Program.

You may also visit the Government of Canada website here for more information and updates.

THE BASIC PROCESS

If you’re eligible to immigrate under one of the 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 60 days to submit an online application for permanent residence including all supporting documentation.

Some FAQs / references
This particular post is my souvenir of all the good times 'we' had on this thread. Here

I cannot read page one, can someone recommend an agent?

My score is above the Cut-off. Why haven't I received ITA? Your ITA will come within 24 hours

Others who wrote same date with me have seen their ielts result. Why can't I access mine? Results are uploaded in batches. Usually yours will be available within 24 hours. In some rare cases it takes longer. This is part of the fine print and was explained to you on the day you took the exam

Does ices now require waec/neco? No

I don't have a credit card, how do I pay for WES or ICES or CES or IQAS ? You can pay with your regular Nigerian card if your bank allows international card payments.

Does ICES accept statement of result? Possibly, if it is sent by your institution.

Does WES accept statement of result? Usually, yes

How do I follow up with ielts remark? pray to whoever or whatever you believe in. Then follow up with international office to be sure your exam actually leaves Nigeria for the remark. To contact: BC

Should I ask evaluating body to send IRCC a copy of my ECA report?

Responding to PPR when there's been no change in family composition

How to view my application details post-AOR

This person added spouse in the middle of application and was invited for interview at Accra

This person added a baby towards end of application

What am I submitting at PPR?

WES evaluates this certificate positively. More info here and here

Steps to register with ICES

Some ideas for learning French and a recommended institute

Email addresses of visa offices: accra

How do I go about waec verification?

I've changed my name after marriage. What name should I use for my WES/ICES/IQAS/ECA? Use the name on your international passport.

@mamaroon
I think the projection in your last post in Part 6 is wrong (the part about 82k immigrants for 2019). The estimated number of immigrants for 2019 under the EE (FSWP,FSTC,CEC) alone is 191,600 out of a total of 330, 800 immigrants expected in 2019, with Family Class Program, Refugees and Humanitarian concerns sharing the rest . I don't know how it affects your permutation but please revise. Thanks
