You must be willing to spend time online to apply. You should throw applications to various job openings and trust me, you will glad you did.

I will be telling you a secret. And that secret have been what millions have been using in getting their desired Canadian jobs and procuring a Canadian Working Visa. And trust me,it has an almost 100 percent assurance that it must work. And that platform is called is a Express Entry.

Express Entry – Now let’s talk. This Express Entry, is a platform that has helped thousands of  job seekers in Nigeria to gain both jobs and entry into Canada. I said, it has an almost 100 percent success rate. This means that it hasn’t worked for everyone because of different reasons which literally includes qualifications, employer’s selection, some specific issues employment lawyers dealing with etc. Despite that, the Express Entry has a lot of positive feedbacks so far.

For those of you who may be wondering what the Express Entry is all about, is that  Express Entry is used to manage various applications for permanent residence under these federal economic immigration programs:

  • The Federal Skilled Worker Program,
  • The Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
  • The Canadian Experience Class.

How Express Entry works

  • To begin your Canadian employment journey, simply log on to cic.gc.ca
  • Click on register and provide accurate info about your Nationality, Skills, Work Experience, Language ability, Education, and so on.
  • Ensure you keep applying to openings and always check your inbox for mails from Express Entry.

For those who must have met the criteria of one of the federal immigration programs, you will be accepted into a pool of candidates and then you are good to go.

Note: Please applicants are to note that Entry into the Express Entry pool does not guarantee a candidate will be issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Nope. There are other criteria to make that happens. All Invited candidates still have to meet eligibility and admissibility requirements under the Canadians immigration law (Immigration and Refugee Protection Act).

After the applications, those who are the highest-ranking candidates in the Express Entry pool will now be invited to apply for permanent residence.

There is what we call the Comprehensive Ranking System, which usually makes a candidate rank more than others and that is why information on your profile must be as detailed as possible because candidates will be ranked against others in the pool. Because they will be using a point-based system which i called the Comprehensive Ranking System.  This shows that Points are awarded using the information in their profile. So ensure you have a detailed information about yourself provided because candidates with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply for a permanent residence.

For those who are invited to apply for a permanent residence, you will have 60 days to submit an online application for permanent residence.

For candidates who do not get an invitation to apply for a permanent residence after making lots of application, can reapply after 12 months. This because candidates can stay in the Express Entry pool for up to 12 months. Now for those who was not accepted for invitation, they still can apply if they meet the criteria, they can re-enter the pool. With this, it will surely prevent backlogs and ensure quick processing times.

This is all i can show you for now. So good luck on your application. If you are graced enough to get an ITA, then youremployer would do most of the process for you. You can visit this site you can visit: www.canadainternational.gc.ca/nigeria/ For visa procurement and tracking
