Application Process for Invited Candidates

Candidates who received invitations now have a window of 14 days to submit their PR applications, ensuring the details in their Expression of Interest profiles are corroborated.

In light of higher Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores in Express Entry draws, candidates are encouraged to explore alternative pathways to PR in Canada. For international students, pursuing a master’s program at an accredited university in Canada can be a strategic move. This approach offers several advantages:

  • Enhancing scholastic standing for future employment prospects.
  • Allowing students to remain in Canada, increases their chances of PR approval.
  • Eliminating the need for employment offers, Labor Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs), or payrolls, making it advisable to invest in building a professional profile instead.
