EE is an online application system, where applicants who meet the eligibility criteria of the immigration programs create their profile and submit their information outlining their age, working experience, language abilities, education and other required details. The Canadian government introduced this online system in order to facilitate the immigration process of Skilled Professionals who will contribute to the Canadian labour market.

Once the Citizenship and Immigration of Canada determines the eligibility of the potential candidates under one of the specific programs, they will then enter into a pool of eligible candidates.

Finally, based on the government and Canadian employer’s needs, selected candidates will be issued an “Invitation to apply” for permanent residence (ITA). After receiving the invitation, candidates should apply for Canadian permanent residence within 90 days.

In order to start the EE process, you must meet eligibility requirements of one of the immigration categories mentioned above.

You will be assessed based on your:

  • Age
  • Skilled Working Experience
  • English and/or French Language Skills
  • Education and other relevant skills

You will also receive additional points if you have a valid job offer from the Canadian employer.


If you think you are eligible for this program, it is always better to consult an Immigration Specialist and determine your eligibility before starting to create your EE profile. Immigration regulations and program requirements are being changed regularly based on the labour market needs of Canada. Therefore, before applying we highly recommend you to get a professional opinion on your case in order to avoid delays, mistakes and possible refusals in the future.

It is also crucial that the EE profile is created correctly so that a candidate can stand out of the crowd and become noticed by the Canadian employers and Immigration Officer.

With our knowledge of the Canadian immigration law and labour market’s current needs and our expertise, we will advise you on how to increase your chances to receive an “Invitation to Apply” for Permanent Residence.
