Express Entry: Invitation To Apply

About the Invitation To Apply for Canadian permanent residence

An Invitation To Apply is offered to any candidate in the Express entry Poolwho has been selected to apply for immigration to Canada by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) through the Express Entry immigration selection system. Invitations to Apply are issued on a priority basis when IRCC performs a draw from the Express Entry pool, which is made up of candidates who have made an expression of interest in immigrating to Canada. An Invitation To Apply should not be confused with initial eligibility to enter the Express Entry pool, nor should it be confused with a job offer from a Canadian employer or a provincial nomination certificate. The Invitation To Apply is an auto-generated letter issued to Express Entry candidates through their Express Entry profiles
