TCF Canada: Test de connaissance du français.

*Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) HERE:

2.International Credential Assessment Service of Canada (ICAS)

Pharmacists (NOC 3131): If you need a license to practice, the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada must do your assessment.

You can ONLY create your profile when you have your language results and ECA, start HERE

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INVITATION TO APPLY (ITA)

Express Entry draws are conducted at regular intervals (usually fortnightly, on Wednesdays). In these draws, candidates above a certain CRS score are invited to apply (the ITA) for permanent residence. For candidates with exactly the same score as the draw CRS, the tie break rule will apply, read up on this and see an example HERE

You can apply for permanent residence when you get an Invitation to Apply (ITA). You have 60 days to submit an application. There are currently COVID exceptions to this, read HERE.

If you do not get an ITA, 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 with changes e.g. new language results, additional degree assessment, marriage etc. If you are not invited to apply within 12 months of submitting an Express Entry profile, your profile will expire. You can open a new profile. If you still meet the criteria, you will re-enter the pool.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION (eAPR)

After you get an Invitation to Apply (ITA), please see the checklist HERE of documents to be submitted. Some requirements include:

- Passport: See how to get or renew a Nigerian passport DIY with Servicom HERE

- Application Fees: See how much your application will cost HERE

- Proof of Funds (POF): You must show that you have enough money to settle in Canada. This money can't be borrowed. If your spouse is coming with you, you can count money you have together in a joint account. The amount of money you need to support your family depends on the size of your family which includes: yourself, your spouse/partner, your dependent children (read an adoption PPR story HERE) and your spouse’s dependent children. Funds must be readily available, you cannot use equity or real property. Read more about POF HERE.

Everything you need to know about Gift Deeds HERE.

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

Read more about medicals HERE.
Read about medical inadmissibility HERE.

- Police Clearance Certificates (PCC): 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. They are 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. Read more about police certificates HERE. Ensure you carefully check the IRCC requirement for the country you are getting a PCC for, as some also require additional docs like a driving licence. Scan your PCC in colour NOT black & white.

- Biometrics : You should schedule an appointment online with your closest Visa Application Center (VAC). There are two VACs in Nigeria - Abuja and Lagos. Read more about biometrics HERE.

-Work Experience Reference Letter: ensure that the job description on your reference letter matches (1) the lead statement, (2) all the essential duties and (3) most of the main duties listed on your chosen NOC. More about NOC HERE. Read a strategy for getting your reference letter HERE. **NOC mismatch is one of the most common reasons for rejected FSW applications.**

It is your job DESCRIPTION (i.e. the tasks you performed) that matters NOT your job TITLE.

Find a step by step post ITA guide HERE.

Some applicants have been asked to attend interviews, see some sample questions HERE and HERE

Well.... I had my first IELTS on 15th August and result is as follow...
L 8 R 8 W 7 S 6.5
Overall 7.5

I intend to remark listening, speaking and writing.
Special thanks to this thread and most especially wasseynet. I had 4-day writing preparation with him and it really helped me.

I need all the points o because age isn't coming down.

I'm considering doing another ECA for my spouse , Wes evaluated her LLB and BL as 2 certificates but I know IQAS will give her professional degree. What's their post covid timeline please.

Is Speaking not Remarkable? if you are sure of getting an upgrade while you do other thing to increase your score
that 6.5 destroyed the good result na.
