Express Entry Profile

Registration of Express Entry Profile is the first stage to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker. Foreign nationals will be able to submit it only if they meet the minimum entry requirements under at least one of the three immigration programs.

Who Can Register Express Entry Profile?

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) uses Express Entry Profile to find out if a skilled worker meets the immigration program’s minimum requirements of at least the Canadian Experience Class Program, or Federal Skilled Worker Program, or Federal Skilled Trades Program. If not, then a candidate will not be allowed to appear in the pool.

Information to Register for Immigration

Candidates must disclose the following information in their Express Entry Profile:

Personal details
Contact details
Education information – degrees. Foreign degrees must be supported by the Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) result.
Language proficiency – English or French. The language test result is essential to be able to register a profile. Each immigration program has a threshold. Higher language test scores might significantly increase candidate’s Comprehensive Ranking System score, that the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) evaluates to invite candidates for permanent residence.
Work history
Family information
National Occupational Classification (NOC) job title and code
Provincial nomination (if applicable)
A written job offer from an employer in Canada. Must be supported by a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

Steps – Create and Submit Express Entry Profile

Step 1

To complete the Express Entry Profile, a candidate will need information from certain documents. For example, language test results, Educational Credential Assessment report, Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) if a candidate claims a valid job offer, etc.

Step 2

Foreign nationals have 60 days to finalize and submit their Express Entry Profile, during which time they may exit the profile and information will be saved in a GCKey account. However, those who do not submit their Express Entry Profile within 60 days, have to start over again.

Step 3

The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) receives a profile and assesses under which immigration program candidate might immigrate to Canada:

Federal Skilled Worker
Canadian Experience Class
