Tips for Creating the Perfect Express Entry Profile

Replacing the earlier first-come first-serve paper-based application system, Express Entry is an online application management system. Candidates are entered into a pool and ranked against each other. The highest-ranking candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in periodic draws. The first step to apply is to assess your eligibility and, subsequently, create your Express Entry profile!

Free Assessment

Your profile will be ranked based on how various aspects of your profile such as age, educational qualification, work experience, adaptability factors, and even spouse-related factors. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) grants points for each of these factors. Since a high CRS score is the number one way to improve your chances of immigrating to Canada, it’s important that you make the best possible profile.

Consider these useful tips for creating the perfect Express Entry profile!

1. Assess Your Eligibility Very Carefully

Some applicants treat the initial eligibility assessment as a mere formality. It is not. Provide accurate and detailed information, preferably with documentary proof in hand, for an accurate and credible preliminary assessment.

This will ensure the final step of creating your Express Entry profile will be a simpler and easier affair. Further, this will give you more time to analyze the various factors impacting your CRS and to take steps to boost your score and create the perfect profile that will help you qualify for an ITA at the earliest possible time.

2. Apply Early for High Human Capital Ranking

The CRS grants the highest score, 110 points (100 if applying for Express Entry with an accompanying spouse) if your age is between 20 and 29 years.

The number of points you can receive drops off quickly once you pass 30. While you may be delaying submitting a profile so you can earn more work experience, you might have an age penalty if you wait too long. Remember, your Express Entry profile is valid for one year, but there’s nothing stopping you from submitting again if it expires before you receive an ITA.

The perfect profile would be one where an applicant has acquired quality education and substantial work experience before turning 30 years of age.

3. Improve your Educational Qualifications

The CRS values education very highly. An applicant who has just graduated from high school will get 30 points under the “Level of Education” factor in the CRS. A Master’s degree holder, on the other hand, scores 135 points while a Ph.D. holder gets the maximum score of 150 points.

Improving your educational credentials takes time and money. That said, if you do have the resources to go back to school, it can have a massive payoff for your CRS score. If you don’t have post-secondary education, a one-year degree could triple your CRS points under the “Level of Education” factor. Those holding a Bachelor’s or any other 3-year degree can increase their score from 120 points to 128 points by opting for an additional one-year degree, diploma, or certificate course.

Joining a one-year course when you apply for Express Entry will help you boost your ranking and perfect your profile by the end of the 12-month validity period of your profile.

Immigration Tip: If you aren’t eligible for Express Entry, or if your CRS score isn’t competitive, consider Canadim’s Study-2-Immigrate program as an alternative to come to Canada!

4. Ignore Foreign Education Credentials Assessment at your Own Risk

Whatever level of education you claim, you’re going to need an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) to prove it. An ECA basically evaluates how your degree compares to one you would earn in Canada. The Canadian equivalent of your degree is how your profile actually earn points in the CRS. While you may have a Master’s degree, if it’s only equivalent to a Canadian Bachelor’s degree, you’ll only be able to claim up to 120 points (rather than up to 135).

Since level of education is so important to creating the perfect profile, it’s also important that you get your credentials fairly assessed. While most candidates only need to have their highest earned degree assessed, it may be a good idea to get all of your post-secondary credentials assessed to make sure you’re claiming as many CRS points as possible.


5. Boost your Language Proficiency

Language proficiency is one of the most important parts of the perfect Express Entry profile. Meeting the minimum eligibility requirement may actually not be enough to have a competitive profile.

Doing well on the IELTS, or whichever official language test you take, can significantly increase your CRS score in several ways. It’s also a much easier and quicker way to boost your profile’s competitiveness, compared to improving your educational credentials. You should take the IELTS as soon as possible. You need the results to assess your initial eligibility, and you can always update your profile if you retake them and get a better score.

Practice for the IELTS even if your English is great. At the end of the day, this is a test and even native English speakers sometimes do poorly if they don’t properly prepare to take the test.

6. Foreign Work Experience is a Force Multiplier

The CRS uses the National Occupational Classification (NOC) Matrix to assign points for work experience. The NOC Matrix assigns a skill level and four digit code to every occupation in the Canadian labour force. Properly identifying and claiming your NOC code is incredibly important when creating your Express Entry profile.

For Express Entry, only work experience classified as Skill Type 0, Level A, or Level B is considered eligible as foreign work experience.

7. Comprehensive Details in the Profile

Remember that whatever NOC code you claim when you create your Express Entry profile, you’re going to have to be able to prove if you receive an ITA.

For Canadian immigration purposes, your job title doesn’t matter much. You need to choose the NOC code that matches your actual job duties. If you include a detailed description of your duties and responsibilities, it can boost your chances of receiving an ITA and obtaining permanent residence in Canada.

8. Don’t Forget your Spouse

Your profile is assigned different CRS points depending on whether or not you’re applying with an accompanying spouse or common-law partner. Your Express Entry profile can actually earn points for your partner’s “core human capital” factors, such as work experience and language proficiency. Try calculating your score with and without your partner, to see which would be more competitive.

Also, try calculating how many points your partner’s profile would receive if they were the principal applicant instead of you. They might just be more competitive.

If you choose to apply without your spouse, and are granted permanent residence, you can always sponsor them for permanent residence later.

Immigration Tip: If you have a spouse or common-law partner, you can double your chances by both submitting an Express Entry profile. If one of you receives an ITA, the other one can simply withdraw their profile.

Additional Points

“Additional Points” under the CRS are for things like a provincial nomination, or a job offer from a Canadian employer. They’re worth up to 600 out of 1200 possible CRS points, so a lot of candidates focus on them. If you can claim additional points, that’s fantastic for your Express Entry profile! That said, the minimum required CRS score to receive an ITA hasn’t been above 500 since August 2016, and it hasn’t been above 600 since May 2015!

  1. Before deciding whether or not to complete an Express Entry profile, you need to consider if you qualify for one or more of the three specific federal immigration programs — being the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program, and Federal Skilled Trades Program.

    Canada’s Express Entry is the means whereby Ottawa manages applications by those who qualify for permanent residence under these three programs. In order to be able to register with the Express Entry, you first need to qualify under one of the three permanent residence programs that are being managed by the system.

    Canadian provinces and territories have the option of seeking out candidates listed under the Express Entry system, and invite them to apply under one of their Provincial Nominee Programs, should they desire to do so in order to accommodate regional labor market requirements. However, you will still need to meet the requirements for at least one of the three federal programs listed above to be selected through the Provincial Nominee Programs.

    In order to determine if it even makes sense to apply for Express Entry, you can go to our website to verify if you qualify by filling out the Skilled Worker Free Assessment Form:

    The Express Entry process is not always easy to understand, which is why it’s essential to hire a good immigration lawyer early in your application process. Read on for a further guide to creating your Express Entry profile.

Misrepresentation

Has your immigration case been refused based on Misrepresentation?
Have you received a procedural fairness letter?

Findings of immigration inadmissibility (not allowed entry into Canada or are being removed from Canada) on the basis of immigration misrepresentation are becoming increasingly common following the passage of the Faster Removal of Foreign Criminals Act. The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act increased the bar for inadmissibility from 2 to 5 years so immigration misrepresentation findings are even more significant now because a foreign national or permanent resident is also barred for 5 years from making an application to return to Canada.

Who can be found to be inadmissible for misrepresentation?

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) sets out that a foreign national or permanent resident can be found to have misrepresented for many reasons some of which include:

  • Providing information to Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that is inconsistent, inaccurate, or incomplete, and that as a result has or could induce an error in the administration of the IRPA;

  • Withholding material facts from IRCC or CBSA that are relevant to the matter and that, as a result, has or could induce an error in the administration of the IRPA;

  • Being sponsored by an individual who has been found to be inadmissible for misrepresentation;

  • Following the vacation of a decision to allow of a claim or application for refugee protection; or

  • Following cessation of citizenship based on a determination that this status was obtained by false representation or fraud or knowingly concealing material circumstances.

Examples of material misrepresentations (that could induce an error) would be:

  • Failure to declare that you have been refused a visa for another country;

  • Providing a document that is found to not be genuine;

  • Failure to mention a family member;

  • Declare employment experience which you do not have; or

  • Engage in a non-genuine marriage.

Examples of non-material misrepresentations (that could not induce an error) or is of limited relevance could be in certain circumstances:

  • Reversing the date and month of birth on an application;

  • Indicating being single when widowed; or

  • Providing correct and consistent information on multiple forms except one.

Misrepresented information can be provided (or omitted) by the main (principal) applicant, a family member, or your representative. In all cases, it is the principal applicant who is at fault – even if they did not know the misrepresentation occurred.

Deciding misrepresentation

The process for finding a migrant inadmissible for immigration misrepresentation requires that the foreign national or permanent resident first be provided with the opportunity to respond to the allegations, which should be set out either during an interview with a decision maker or in a Procedural Fairness Letter (PFL). If the allegations are set out in a PFL, the foreign national will be given a specific amount of time to respond on paper or in very limited circumstances by interview.

Where the application was made outside of Canada, the foreign national or permanent resident must provide a response to the Visa Officer who identified the potential misrepresentation. The Visa Officer will then assess these submissions and make a final decision. If the finding of misrepresentation stands, then the applicant will receive a 5-year bar on re-application. Comparatively, if the foreign national or permanent resident makes the application from within Canada, then they must address their reply to IRCC (or at times the CBSA). If after reviewing these submissions the officer continues to believe that the foreign national or permanent resident has misrepresented themselves, they could be required to attend an interview with IRCC or the CBSA, followed in certain circumstances by a hearing before the Immigration Division, where a removal order may be issued. Permanent residents may in some cases appeal this removal order to the IAD. Everyone else can challenge the removal order at the Federal Court. The 5-year bar will commence once the foreign national or permanent resident is removed from Canada.
