Invitation to Apply (Express Entry): The Next Steps
Candidates in the Express Entry pool who receive an Invitation To Apply (ITA) for permanent residence have 90 days to submit a complete and accurate e-application to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Extensions will not be granted.
A successful e-application must include a range of supporting documentation, depending on your personal credentials.
Before we can assist, we would need more information about you and your credentials. Please fill out our assessment form and indicate, by answering the appropriate Express Entry questions, that you have submitted a profile and received an ITA.
If you have not yet received an ITA
- If you have already submitted your Express Entry profile, but have not yet received an ITA, please see this page on improving your profile and ranking under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
- If you have not yet submitted an Express Entry profile, find out if you are eligible to do so by completing a free assessment form.
