Canada PR Step-by-Step Process

Canada PR Step-by-Step Process

Steps Involved in Getting your Canada PR

Step 1-  English or French Test (IELTS OR CELPIP/TCF OR TEF)


You must demonstrate your language proficiency to get a permanent resident visa for Canada, which is one of the most crucial requirements. You must prove your proficiency in English or French in all the programs. Any language exam certificate accepted by the IRCC, including the IELTS, CELPIP/TCF, or TEF, can be used to demonstrate language ability. Additionally, a minimum score requirement must be met to be eligible to apply; the minimal score varies depending on the program. Generally speaking, most programmes need you to have an IELTS score of at least 6.0, equivalent to CLB 7.



Your program selection may be influenced by which language you are proficient in, English or French, as only a few programs accept French-speaking people.


Step 2- CRS Score Calculation


The CRS score, calculated using your age, education, work experience, etc., should be your following action after sorting out the language requirements since it will let you know where you stand and whether you need to adjust or change the program. The highest CRS score that can be obtained is 1200.


 If your CRS score is less than 400, you might want to work on improving your profile because this number could be detrimental to your candidacy. This can be done in several ways, such as improving your language test results, increasing your educational attainment, or—and this is best—getting accepted into a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which can contribute 600 extra points to your profile and boost it to the top.


Step 3 – ECA


The Canadian government needs you to have your educational records evaluated and transformed into standard form by any recognized organizations, WES being the most common among them. The detailed WES process is given below.



To get your documents assessed by WES, go to the WES official website and register an account if you do not already have one, then deliver your papers in a sealed envelope to a WES office after reading all the conditions. Please remember that all of your documents must be authenticated by an authorized individual or organization and in English or French. If they are in a different language, get them translated before submitting them.


Step 4- Create your Express Entry Profile


After completing all the above stages, create your Express Entry Profile on the official Canadian portal. Please keep in mind that you must have a minimum of 67 points out of 100 to be able to apply for any of the Express Entry programs.


Step 5: Gather your documents.


After you have completed all of the prerequisites, create a document checklist and begin gathering all of the papers that will be necessary at the time of application. Make sure you have included all of the essential documents in your application and select just the program whose criteria you can meet, as missing even one record can cost you your Canadian dream.


Step 6- Get an ITA


Wait for an update from the IRCC once you’ve filed your application. Officers will review your application and, if it is perfect, issue you an ITA or Invitation to Apply. The ITAs have been generated automatically and presented on the internet site, and candidates are picked based on their CRS score, similar to a merit system. If you did not get the ITA but received another demand, please satisfy it as soon as possible and continue with the procedure.


Step 7- Submit your PR Application


If you were fortunate enough to acquire your ITA, you must now carefully prepare your application and submit it using the internet gateway, the IRCC official website. The ITA letter will inform you of the program you have been accepted into, and you must prepare your application and submit it within 60 days of receiving the ITA.


Step 8- Submit your Biometrics


Unless you are excluded, you must submit your biometrics as part of the procedure. To prevent delays, the biometric fee must be paid at the time of application. Make an appointment in a biometrics facility after receiving the biometrics instruction letter and submit your biometrics on the appointment day.


Step 9- COPR & Visa Stamping


CoPR is an abbreviation for Confirmation of Permanent Residence, mailed to successful applicants. So, if you receive a CoPR in the mail, you were successful and are now a Canadian Permanent Resident.

All you have to do now is go to a Visa Application Centre (VAC) and get your visa stamped before you leave.
