Canada immigration eligibility
Your success in the Express Entry draw is largely dependent on your understanding of the immigration program you are applying for and its Canada immigration eligibility requirements. You must also be clear about your suitability for the program and work out a strategy to ensure success. The first step in the Canadian immigration process is not writing the English or French examination as most people believe. Rather, it is to ensure that you have potential eligibility to migrate under any of Canada’s complex immigration programs.
Find out if you are eligible to apply
Do you want to live permanently in Canada and work in a skilled job?
Use the IRCC tool below to answer a few questions to find out if you might be able to apply under Express Entry.
There are three immigration programs under Express Entry, and each has different requirements. You will need about 10 to 15 minutes to fill out this form.
You will be asked questions about your:
- language ability
- family members
- work experience
- details on any job offer
Based on your answers, IRCC will tell you what programs you may be eligible for, so be as accurate as you can.
If you are eligible for Express Entry, IRCC will give you a detailed list of instructions on what to do next. This would include filling out an online profile.
Based on this profile, if you meet the requirements, you will be put in a pool of candidates for immigration, and possibly invited to apply to immigrate.
