Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is the Ministry of the Government of Canada that facilitates migration. Express Entry (EE) is an electronic management application system used by IRCC to select and process some of Canada’s economic immigration programs, one of which is the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) Program (the focus of this thread).

FSW ELIGIBILITY

First things first, you must score at least 67 points out of 100 under the selection factors to be eligible for FSW or PNP (under Express Entry). Eligibility points are just as important as CRS points - both are evaluated when you eventually submit your PR application

Calculate your eligibility points HERE.

The minimum requirements for FSW are listed HERE. You will need more than this minimum to get maximum CRS points.






ESTIMATE YOUR CRS

If you are eligible (67/100 and above) and you complete a profile with your information, you will placed in the Express Entry pool of candidates with other candidates based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Criteria.

*Use the CRS tool/calculator to estimate your CRS score HERE

*Check the CRS of the last draw and trend of CRS scores from 2015 to date HERE

*CRS Criteria/CRS Grid is HERE. Use this to manually cross check your calculated CRS score. You should know the components of your CRS points like the back of your hand. This grid also clearly shows the options for getting more points.

POST 3

ENTERING THE POOL/CREATING AN EXPRESS ENTRY PROFILE

If you are eligible (67/100 and above), you can create a profile and enter the pool when you have your language results & ECA ready and you know your NOC. See details on this below. Start creating your profile HERE. Entering the pool = creating a profile, this is NOT the same as submitting an application for permanent residence (PR). You only submit an application AFTER an invitation to apply (ITA).




*LANGUAGE: read HERE. Language results are valid for 2 years.

The language equivalence tables (i.e. how your IELTS or TEF scores translate to CLB/NCLC) are HERE. A minimum of CLB7 in LRWS is required (i.e. LRWS 6666), however you still need to get the minimum 67 FSW eligibility points to be able to set up an Express Entry profile and even more than that to get a very high CRS and the chance to be invited to apply for PR.

Approved language tests available in Nigeria:
English - IELTS: International English Language Testing System or CELPIP: Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program
IELTS must be General not ACADEMIC, CELPIP must be CELPIP-General test, not the General-LS test,
French - TEF Canada (Test d’évaluation de français) or TCF Canada (Test de connaissance du français).




*EDUCATIONAL CREDENTIAL ASSESSMENT (ECA): read HERE. Results are valid for 5 years. There are different types of ECAs. You need to get an ECA for immigration purposes.

Applicants educated outside of Canada must complete an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) through one of the designated agencies to ensure that their foreign education is equivalent to Canadian education.
If you have a PhD or MSc, you should ONLY evaluate your highest degree. A second Masters degree will not increase your CRS, the only thing higher than one Masters degree is a PhD

Designated Organisations: are listed HERE
1.Education Service – University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies (CES): evaluates LLB as a professional degree (same CRS points as Masters)
2.International Credential Assessment Service of Canada (ICAS)
3.World Education Services (WES): most popular, but evaluates LLB as a Bachelors not as a professional degree. A VO may likely not award professional degree CRS points if your ECA does not explicitly say so. It was not advisable for Lawyers seeking maximum CRS points to use WES. However, this was challenged recently, read HERE and HERE for the judicial cases.
4.International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS): evaluates LLB as a professional degree (same CRS points as Masters)
5.International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES)

Some ECA organizations do not recognize degrees from Universities in Benin Republic, so research thoroughly and read the ECA organization’s websites before committing funds. If your University is not recognized, then your ECA is worthless for FSW

Read HERE to understand your report and determine the CRS and/or eligibility points you can get from your evaluation.

Designated Professional Bodies:
Physicians (NOC 3111 or NOC 3112): If your primary occupation is specialist physician (NOC 3111) or general practitioner/family physician (NOC 3112), the Medical Council of Canada MUST do an ECA for your primary medical diploma.

Pharmacists (NOC 3131): If you are a pharmacist (NOC code 3131), where you need to get your report depends on your job. Read more HERE




*NATIONAL OCCUPATIONAL CLASSIFICATION (NOC), read HERE to find out how to choose your NOC and check the NOC 2016 skill type/level (0, A, B, C or D) or NOC 2021 TEER category (0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5) of your work experience.

The new NOC structure (NOC 2021) is effective Nov 16, 2022, read HERE to find out how to choose your NOC and check the TEER category (0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5) of your work experience. You will NOT be eligible for FSW with an NOC (2016) skill type/level C or D job or NOC (2021) TEER category 4 or 5 job.

NOTE: 16 Nov 2022 is an important date, this is when the new NOC 2021 structure (based on TEER categories) will be applicable to Express Entry. Don't miss a nomination or ITA because you didn't update your NOC to the 2021 version vs 2016 version, read HERE.


*SKILLED WORK EXPERIENCE: read HERE. 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 (2 years of 15 hours of paid work per week) in an occupation that is NOC skill type/level 0, A, B (NOC 2021 TEER category 0, 1, 2, 3) in the past 10 years. You can combine several NOCs and jobs to make up the 3 year maximum required but one of them, the primary NOC must be 1 year CONTINUOUS.

*Work experience while studying & paid internships may count for FSW, read HERE for more details.

*Self Employed applicants are also eligible for FSW, read HERE for more details.

*Work experience does not need to match education/degree for FSW. FSW work experience is not about what you studied as a degree, but what you do/did in your job e.g. an engineering graduate working as a barber must choose the NOC for barbers not engineers. In order to be assigned points under FSW for foreign work experience, you must have performed the actions described in the lead statement, a substantial number of the main duties, including all essential duties of your chosen NOC. Read HERE and HERE for NOC rejection stories

*You do not need to meet the employment requirements listed on the NOC you choose e.g. your NOC “employment requirements” section may require a PhD, however to qualify for FSW, you do not need a PhD, see HERE




*PROOF OF FUNDS (POF): You must show that you have enough money to settle in Canada. The amount of money you need depends on the size of your family. If you are single, your family size is 1. With a spouse, 2, with one child , 3 etc. Check the current values per family size HERE. A sample LOE for POF showing what your POF is comprised of is HERE. You must update the correct POF for your profile to be eligible. You only need to update the amount that corresponds to your family size when you join the pool but you need to provide actual evidence (e.g. bank letter, gift deed etc.) that you actually have the POF when you submit your application to IRCC.

POST 4

INVITATION TO APPLY (ITA)

Candidates are chosen from the Express Entry pool using draws. These draws are usually conducted fortnightly, on Wednesdays. Some draws are all program draws (accommodating FSW, PNP, FST as well as CEC in one draw) . Some draws are program specific (CEC only or FST only or PNP only). In these draws, candidates above a certain CRS score (CRS cut-off) are invited to apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Candidates with CRS below the cut-off are not invited. For candidates with exactly the same score as the draw CRS cut-off, the tie break rule will apply. Read more about the tie break rule HERE

You can apply for permanent residence when you get an Invitation to Apply (ITA). You have 60 days to decline or accept the ITA and submit an application. Find a step by step post ITA guide HERE. If you do not accept or decline the ITA at the end of the 60 days the invite will lapse and your profile will no longer be in the pool. You need to decline to remain in the pool if you are not ready to accept the invite.

If you do not get an ITA, you will remain in the pool for up to 12 months from the date you first created your profile, as long as you meet the criteria for one of the federal programs (FSW, FST or CEC) and do not become ineligible. You should update your profile with any changes e.g. new IELTS results, additional degree, marriage etc. Read HERE for instructions on how to update your profile - for marital status update see HERE. Updating your profile does not change the date you originally created it. Always remember to transmit after updating. If your profile becomes ineligible you cannot edit it and there is no cure/solution, you must create a new profile.

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. An expired profile does not disappear, however the current status should read "profile expired". You can open a new profile with the same GC key.

It is illegal for an individual to have more than one EE profile, read HERE.

POST 5

SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION (eAPR)

If you accept the ITA, and are applying for permanent residence, these checklists HERE & HERE are good guides. Read the Express Entry section of the Immigration Act HERE. Upload a scan copy of your IELTS/TEF and ECA as well as your Degree certificates, even though the IRCC website suggests that it is enough to only provide the reference numbers, applications have been rejected as incomplete because the ECA and IELTS reports were missing, see HERE. You already have it so please scan it.

Be sure to click on the question mark (?) on the eAPR forms for further details about IRCC’s questions and how to respond to them.

Some requirements include:

- QUEBEC: do not select Quebec as your province of choice, your application WILL BE REJECTED. Beware!!! Quebec runs their own skilled workers program. FSW is designed for those planning to live in any province EXCEPT Quebec. If in doubt, read this judicial case HERE.

- APPLICATION FEES: Read HERE

- PROOF OF FUNDS (POF): You must show that you have enough money to settle in Canada. POF can't be borrowed. Funds must be readily available. 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 depends on the size of your family. For POF purposes, your family includes: yourself, your spouse/partner, your dependent children and your spouse’s dependent children, if any (INCLUDING NON ACCOMPANYING FAMILY MEMBERS).

*Read more about POF HERE

*Everything you need to know about Gift Deed is HERE

- MEDICALS: Your family includes: yourself, your spouse/partner, your dependent children and your spouse’s dependent children, if any (INCLUDING NON ACCOMPANYING FAMILY MEMBERS). Your family must undergo a medical test conducted by a doctor on the list of IRCC designated panel physicians, you can’t just go to any hospital. Q-life (Lagos) and IOM (Lagos and Abuja) are currently the only 2 clinics in Nigeria for IRCC medicals. Read more about medicals 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 or since the age of 18. PCCs are required for the Principal Applicant, spouse and dependent children - your children, your spouse's children who are 18 years of age or older (INCLUDING NON ACCOMPANYING FAMILY MEMBERS).

*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 and how to get one for each country HERE. In this link, IRCC suggest you get a PCC for several/frequent short stays (e.g. 4 months) in the same country over a period.

*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: If you have NOT provided biometrics to IRCC in the last 10 years then you and your dependents (including children above the age of 14), should schedule an appointment online with your closest Visa Application Center (VAC) when instructed by IRCC. There are two VACs in Nigeria - Abuja and Lagos. Read more about biometrics HERE

- WORK EXPERIENCE REFERENCE LETTER: It is NOT advisable to write a work reference letter by yourself, better your supervisor or colleague write one if the employer/HR won’t. Ensure that your reference letter contains a job description that matches (1) the lead statement, (2) ALL the essential duties and (3) MOST of the main duties listed on your chosen NOC, in addition to all the other requirements for work reference letter (hours of work, pay etc). NOC website is HERE, it contains the lead statement and duties for all NOCs. Read a strategy for getting your reference letter HERE

**NOC mismatch is a common reason for rejected FSW applications. Your job DESCRIPTION (i.e. the tasks you performed) must match your NOC. Your job TITLE does not need to match the NOC job titles. It is your JOB DESCRIPTION not your University degree that the Visa Officer will match to your chosen NOC. DO NOT COPY AND PASTE THE NOC DUTIES AS YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION. LASTLY, THOSE MANAGERIAL NOC’S STARTING WITH 0 ARE MANAGERIAL, ENSURE YOU ARE AN OGA AND YOUR DUTIES SHOW THAT BEFORE CHOOSING THEM. ONE REJECTION STORY HAD A YOUTH CORPER CLAIMING THIS, IT DIDN’T END WELL.** Read the story HERE

Read HERE to see how to match your job description to your NOC.

FAQs - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND SAMPLE DOCUMENTS

1) How do I start this whole Canadian Immigration thing? Read HERE

2) Experience is the best teacher. Read HERE for an oldie but goodie post of people with unique experiences (used NYSC work experience, added spouse, added baby, used self-employed, used gift deed, used multiple NOCs etc).

3) Could I apply from another country other than my home country? Yes.

4) Could I move to another country after I apply? Yes, but inform IRCC by webform.

5) Could I have more than one express entry profile simultaneously? No, it is illegal for one individual to have more than one EE profile, read HERE. Some people say a husband and wife can have 2 different profiles (one in which wife is PA and second in which husband is PA) since they are two different individuals.

6) What documents must I submit with my application? Read HERE is a good guide of documents to be submitted. Also read HERE and the Immigration Act that speaks to Express Entry HERE

7) Do I need to create a new GCKey to create an Express entry profile? No. Could I use the one I created for a previous application to IRCC for a visitor or study visa? Yes. Read up HERE

8 ) Do I start FSW and PNP simultaneously or separately? Each province has its own PNP programmes. In some cases a province may have several PNP programmes. Some PNP programmes are related to Express Entry and some are not. The ones that are not related to Express Entry are often paper based. For those PNP programmes related to Express Entry, you are able put in an expression of interest (EOI) for some e.g. SINP (Saskatchewan), others pick candidates by themselves from the Express Entry pool e.g. OINP (Ontario). For PNPs that are related to Express Entry, you will need to create an Express Entry profile, for example even though SINP have their own EOI platform/portal they will typically ask for your EE profile number etc. This Express entry profile serves as your profile for both the PNP and FSW. In summary whether you are interested in FSW or PNP: evaluate your degree(s), take the IELTS and create an Express Entry profile. Read HERE and HERE for the websites for each province and further details for exploring EE and non EE PNPs.

9) I am the PA, does my spouse need to do IELTS and ECA? Depends on how high your CRS is with and without spouse IELTS and ECA. Read HERE

10) I don’t understand my ECA report? Can I claim a professional degree or two or more certificates etc? Read HERE to find out.

11) Are there CRS points for spouse/common law partner’s second language? No. Read HERE.

12) My first, middle and last names are arranged differently on my documents or my name is misspelt or one name is missing. What do I do? Ask the issuer of the affected document (e.g. ECA, PCC or Nigeria Immigration) to make a change. If this is not possible, then “one and the same person affidavit” may help with this. Read HERE

13) How do I begin the search for my NOC? Can I use skill level C or D NOC 2016 (category 4 or 5 NOC 2021) for FSW? Can I use a past/old/previous jobs? Read HERE

14) Could I combine multiple/different NOCs to make up my 3 years of work experience? Yes, you can combine several NOCs/jobs to make up the 3 year maximum required but one of them, the primary NOC must be 1 year CONTINUOUS. All the jobs must be paid and meet minimum number of hours etc. Read more HERE

15) Do I need to be currently employed or use my current employment? No, you may use any previous work experience combination within the last 10 years provided it meets the IRCC conditions.

16) Does my job title need to match any of the NOC job titles? No, it is your JOB DESCRIPTION that needs to match.

17) Does my University degree need to match my NOC or my NOC education requirements? No, it is your JOB DESCRIPTION that needs to match.

18) What does a Gift Deed/Deed of Gift look like? See samples HERE
and HERE

19) I was paid in cash. Not a problem, see sample cash salary certificate if you wish to add this to your application as further evidence of employment HERE

20) Do I need my POF to be in my account for 6 months before I apply for FSW? No. Read HERE and HERE. If you are NOT using a gift deed, you may want to proactively explain large deposits/amounts received with an LOE.

21) Does my POF have to be in my local currency? No. Might even be better to save in foreign currency (dollars) because of exchange rate changes.

22) Could I change the currency of my POF and the form it is in after AOR e.g. from deposit to treasury bills? Yes, provided the amount is equal to or exceeds the amount you need for your family size according to the IRCC website. Some people think you need to let IRCC know, some people don’t.

23) Do I need to provide tax documents to prove my work experience? Not unless you are applying as self-employed or IRCC has specifically sent you an ADR asking for this.

24) Do I need to provide pay slips? You could, if you have them and if your ref letter does not explicitly say you were paid. The question mark on the eAPR forms relating to work experience asks for it, if you have it.

25) My company has no online presence? Not a problem. Read HERE

26) Could I change my NOC or other details in my express entry profile, while I am in the pool, before ITA? Yes, a candidate can update their information anytime, the CRS will be recalculated accordingly. Read HERE and HERE. See this post HERE about updating marital status

27) Could I change my NOC or other details after ITA? Can the details in my express entry profile be different from what I submit in my PR application (eAPR)? Yes, but some changes may affect your CRS. You still need to meet eligibility points (minimum 67/100) and your recalculated CRS must exceed the minimum/cut-off CRS of the draw that you were invited for, otherwise your application may be rejected. Read HERE. A LOE may be necessary depending on what exactly you are changing. Read this rejection story HERE. In his EE profile he changed his NOC but didn’t edit the details to contain the history for this NOC with dates, organization name etc. The moral of the story is to have your EE profile up to date and accurate at all times.

28) What happens to my CRS if I have a birthday after ITA but before AOR? Nothing, CRS remains the same, age is locked at ITA. Read HERE and HERE

29) What if my circumstances change between ITA and AOR e.g. I get married or my IELTS or ECA expires after ITA but before AOR? Your CRS will be affected. NOTHING IS LOCKED AT ITA EXCEPT AGE. Read HERE and HERE

30) I want to add my siblings and parents to my application as dependents. Not Possible under FSW. Read HERE

No, use the name on your current passport for all your processes IELTS, ECA etc. Read HERE and HERE for what IRCC requires married applicants to provide, having the same surname is not one of the requirements. ECA bodies know that names change and the name on your degree certificate may not be your current name. If required, they will ask for a marriage certificate or other change or name document. Your ECA should typically be in your current name (your former name).

33) Has anyone adopted children and added them to their application? Yes. Read an experience HERE

34) When can I add spouse or baby to my application? Dependents can be added at any time, including after the visa and COPR are issued, but prior to obtaining permanent resident status/landing. Applicants are to inform IRCC immediately their family composition changes (e.g. marriage, birth of a child, divorce, death etc). Read HERE and HERE for more information. A list of documents to be provided for adding spouse is HERE

You can claim points from your own sibling or the sibling of your spouse (but NOT from the spouses of your siblings nor from the spouses of your spouse’s siblings). You can claim points for half siblings as well as step siblings (for step siblings your parents need to be currently married).

38) Could I change my NOC after AOR? Read someone’s experience HERE

39) I already applied for PR but didn’t pay my Right of Permanent Residence Fee (RPRF) at the time. You can still pay after AOR, read HERE

40) Could I spend my POF after AOR? Might not be a wise thing to do. Read HERE

41) What should I add to my personal history when completing my application? ALL your activities in the last 10 years (or since you were 18, if that was less than 10 years ago) including periods of unemployment, directorships, volunteering, side hustles etc. Read HERE for a perspective

43) If I am asked to attend an interview what questions could they ask? See HERE and HERE

44) Could I submit my passport to another country’s VFS other than the one in or closest to my home country or country of residence? Some people have done this, especially in 2020 and 2021 during COVID, some people believe you need to inform IRCC to do this. Your call.

45) Do I need to submit my ECA report and IELTS TRF as well or is updating the reference numbers only in my eAPR ok? You are required to submit the actual documents as scans. This is a crucial part of R75 Minimum Requirements - paragraph 75 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act 2001.....the fact that others have got PPR without it does not nullify the law. Read HERE and HERE

Finally, the VOs do not have a duty to inform you that your application is incomplete nor do they need to give you a chance to file any required information that was missing when you filed your application. The onus is on the applicant.

In the event that someone’s application is rejected, there is always the judicial review option. Some applicants have been successful with the judge asking IRCC to assign the case to another VO for determination. Read HERE for the process. Read this one HERE of a person who was rejected for not providing required docs for this sibling in Canada, where the judge determined that the case should be reviewed and assigned to another VO.

Omo!! I appreciate the hard work that have been put into this first page. It is indeed very comprehensive. This is not an easy thing to do and only God will continue to bless you GraciousWords.
