Can you remain in the pools if your visa expires?

Hey all,

I'm in a tricky situation, I have been working in BC for the past year and a half on a IEC visa from the UK. I am trying to get PR but unfortunately am short a few points to get invited. ( I have a job, and a permanent job offer but my understanding is without a LMIA ( which I never got as my IEC is an open work permit ) I cannot claim the points for the job offer.

So instead I'm trying to scrap as many points as I can, but unfortunately my IEC visa will expire before I get all the documents I need back.
I was wondering if it expires and I leave the country, can I remain in the pool and update my account once I have the new info? Or do you have to be in the country with a valid visa to go the Express entry route?

Thanks for any help, its really appreciated.

Yes you will remain in the pool and update your EE profile as per your circumstances then.
