Do I need A Job Offer To Apply For Canada Express Entry?
The quick answer to this is: NO. Canada’s immigration department changed the Express Entry System to give fewer importance on a qualified job offer. The change aimed to give more weight to core attributes such as qualifications, work experience, language ability and age. However, a job offer is still one of the best ways to score points quickly, as it is worth 200 or 50 Express Entry points depending on the skill level.
What is the Canada Express Entry Process?
- Candidates submit a self-assessed profile into the Express Entry Pool.
- Each profile is scored based on the Comprehensive Ranking System, with points for age, language ability, education, work experience and other factors.
- Canada immigration authorities conduct regular draws (usually every two weeks) to select the best scoring profiles. Cut-off points are generally in the region of 440-460 points.
- Selected candidates have 90 days to submit their full application to one of the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canada Experience Class or Provincial Nomination Program.
- Targeted permanent residence processing times are six months from the date the application is received.
