In order to participate in Express Entry, candidates are not required to hire an immigration representative.

CANADAPT’s professional team can help candidates immigrate to Canada by:
Express Entry is an electronic management application system for immigration to Canada.
Canada immigration questions include lots of inquiries about the Express Entry system. It is not an immigration program and it facilitates the selection and processing of Canada’s economic immigration programs:
Applicants make an “expression of interest” (EOI) in immigrating to Canada and, if they are eligible for at least one of the aforementioned programs, they then enter the Express Entry pool. The federal government and provincial governments, as well as Canadian employers, are then able to select candidates from this pool who will then receive an Invitation To Apply (ITA) for immigration to Canada under one of the programs.
The Comprehensive Ranking System is the government of Canada’s internal mechanism for ranking candidates based on their human capital, determined by factors such as age, level of education and language ability.
This helps to enable Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC, formerly known as CIC) to decide which candidates may be issued invitations to apply for permanent residence. There are up to 600 points available under the system for a candidate’s core human capital and skills transferability factors.
There are no eligible occupation lists for any of the programs. It must be noted, however, that in order to be eligible for any of the programs under Express Entry, the candidate needs to have work experience in an occupation that has a National Occupation Classification (NOC) code of skill type 0, A or B.
Canadian employers have a direct role in Canadian immigration. This role now under Express Entry is more direct and greater than previously. Candidates increase their chances of being invited to apply by promoting themselves directly to employers through the Canada Job Bank.
Not necessarily, though for many candidates, obtaining a valid job offer from a Canadian employer significantly increases their chances of being invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
The documents include those pertaining to civil status such as marriage certificates, birth certificates, language test results, an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA; if applicable), work reference letters, security background checks, and other documents.
Each created profile remains in the Express Entry pool for a period of 12 months or until an Invitation to Apply. If after 12 months a candidate wishes to remain in the pool, s/he may create a fresh profile.
This topic is in the list of Canada immigration questions of many potential candidates. Upon receiving an invitation to apply for permanent residence from a Canadian province or territory, candidates should have the intention to reside in that particular province or territory.

The Provincial Nominee Programs allow Canada’s provinces and territories to select individuals who indicate an interest in settling in a particular province. It also includes individuals who will be able to contribute to that province/territory’s economic development.
Not all, but most of the provinces and territories of Canada participate in the Provincial Nominee Program.
The following provinces participate in the Provincial Nominee Program:
Yes, there is a connection between the PNPs and Express Entry. Once a candidate updates his or her Express Entry profile to show that he or she has an enhanced provincial nomination certificate, he or she will be given enough additional points (600) to be invited to apply at a subsequent draw of candidates from the pool.
Candidates must be in the pool before applying to a province or territory for an enhanced provincial nomination certificate or submitting an Expression of Interest to a province or territory under one of the enhanced PNP streams.
Provinces and territories are able to nominate a certain number of candidates through the Express Entry system to meet local and provincial labor market needs. These portions of the PNPs named “enhanced” nominations.
Candidates in the Express Entry pool who obtain an enhanced nomination from a province are awarded 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System, out of a possible total of 1,200. When these additional points are added to a candidate’s human capital and skills transferability points, it will result in an invitation to apply for permanent residence at a subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool.
All candidates must meet the eligibility criteria of one of the following federal economic immigration programs. It is necessary to enter and be successful in the Express Entry pool:
Provinces and territories may add additional criteria for their own immigration streams.
