Express Entry Process
If you receive a nomination from a province or territory, you will be invited to apply through Express Entry, and you will be able to submit an electronic application to IRCC.
There are two ways to be nominated using the Express Entry process:
1. You contact the province or territory and apply for a nomination under an Express Entry stream.
- If they agree to nominate you, you create or update an Express Entry profile showing you have been nominated;
2. You create an Express Entry profile and select the provinces and territories you are interested in. If a province or territory sends you a "notification of interest" you can apply for their Express Entry stream.
- If you are nominated, you will receive a nomination certificate in your account from the province or territory, and you can accept it electronically.
