Express Entry System is a tool used by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada for management and processing of immigration applications for permanent residence for skilled workers in Canada or overseas.
Why Do You Need Express Entry Profile
Express Entry Profile is the first stage in your immigration through Express Entry System.
You will be able to create Express Entry Profile only if you meet the minimum entry requirements under at least one of the three immigration programs – Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker, or Federal Skilled Trades.
Thus, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) uses Express Entry Profile to find out if a candidate meets the immigration program’s minimum requirements. If not, then you will not be able to register Express Entry Profile. Therefore, it might be a good idea to start with answering the eligibility questions for Express Entry using online tool. You will see if you are eligible for Express Entry based on the result and may start completing your Express Entry Profile.
