Steps to enter the Express Entry pool

Step-1: Use the online Express Entry eligibility tool

  • The province they wish to immigrate to

Step-2: Use electronic key to secure IRCC account information

The Canadian government uses an electronic key to provide safe access and ensure the applicant’s information is kept confidential, allowing the individuals to create Express Entry profiles.

Having a secure account to access immigration and citizenship online services is integral. This account allows you to start, submit, pay and receive information, check the status, and update information on your application.
