Help Centre what do you need help with?

Do I need a job offer to get into the Express Entry pool?

No, in most cases you don’t need a job offer.

But, you will need one if you:

  • are eligible for either the Federal Skilled Worker Program or the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
  • do not have enough money to support yourself and your family in Canada.

Even if you don’t need one, you may want to try and find a valid job offer. It will give you a much higher point score, and so a better chance of being invited to apply.

Did you find what you were looking for?

What was wrong?

You will not receive a reply. Telephone numbers and email addresses will be removed.
