Express Entry Canada

The first step is to verify if you qualify in order to add your profile into the pool of candidates. The criteria that determines if you qualify to enter the pool of candidates is determined by the Canadian Government. Once in the pool of candidates, a second selection grid determine the order in which the candidates are selected by the Government.
The second step requires your profile to be selected by the Canadian Government. At regular intervals, approximately every 2 weeks, the Government will select the best files. Once this has happened, we can submit your complete immigration file. The Canadian Government has announced processing delays of approximately 6 months for this second step.
