To stand eligible, immigration candidates are required to be living in Ontario with a valid work permit and have a minimum of one year of full-time work experience. The very first step to be considered for a provincial nomination is to submit a profile to the express entry system.
It is an application management system that allows people to apply for PR to IRCC. Express Entry is not an immigration program itself, but it manages the applications for FSWP and CEC. If you qualify for one or more of these programs, you can then create an Express Entry profile. Once you upload all the documents, age and language ability, among the other essential criteria. The highest scoring immigration candidates issue ITAs, which allow them to apply for permanent residence.
