How to Apply for Canadian PR +VIDEO(Steps, Costs, Documents & Tips)

Source: Immigration Do

We live in a world where we have many more opportunities today than we did yesterday. So many people can move, travel and build a life in a totally different place from where they were born. Some countries, like Canada, have impressive policies that allow skilled people earn permits to live and work in Canada.

If you are educated and looking for a legal way to move yourself or your family to Canada to take a chance at a new path, these are the details on how to go about it. Of course, this videoand article cannot cover every single aspect of immigrating to Canada. However, if you want to know more about the Express Entry process to move to Canada, this is for you.

There are many reliable agents who charge a hefty fee for you to help you through the process. However, you can complete it on your own from beginning to end. You don’t have to but you can. So, here you go!

Step 1a – Take the quiz to find out if you are eligible.

Cost: FREE

The quiz is simple and you can do it by yourself here. If you have not done a language test before, give yourself a hypothetical test score and fill out your other information. I recommend that you give yourself a test score lower than what you think you may get so you can gauge the amount of room you have to play around with.

Step 1b – Find out what your work NOC is.

This is important because you can only claim work history in one NOC, which means that if you’ve jumped around from job description to job description, you will need to choose the one that you have the longest number of consistent years of work. It is okay if you’ve changed jobs, but as long as your jobs have all been in one NOC, they count. Find your NOC here.

Step 2 – Register for the language test – IELTS General, etc.

Cost: 250 USD

Time Required: 2 to 3 months

If you are eligible based on the quiz above, the next step is to register for the language test. Everyone applying for Canadian PR has to take a language test to show proficiency in either French or English. You get bonus points if you can prove both! I recommend that you give yourself a two to three month window to prepare for the language test. For most people, this is the only thing you have in your control. Your age isn’t going to change, your work history won’t change much and you many need a few years to get an additional degree. So, even though you have been speaking English all your life, IELTS General and others are standardized tests (yuck) and you have to know how they want you to answer the questions they ask you. The most common test for English Language is IELTS General (you cannot use IELTS Academic for immigration purposes) but it isn’t the only one. See the approved language tests for Canadian PR here. This is the official site to register for IELTS with British Council.

Here are practice tests to help you prepare for the IELTS General test. Do not take these practice guides for granted. They go a long way in ensuring you ace the test.

Step 3 – Prepare your documents for WES evaluation.

Cost: $200 USD or less

Time Required: 2 months 

Use the two or three months of IELTS preparation to also prepare your degree evaluation, so you can save time. Everyone who goes to school outside of Canada must go through this process. The Canadian IRCC has a list of certified organizations that can verify your degree and equate it with a Canadian one. The list of the organizations can be found here. The most common on this side of the pond is WES. Basically, they need to say that your degree is equivalent to so-so-and-so degree in Canada.

You can decide to evaluate your most recent degree or all your degrees. The IRCC only requires your most recent degree (your highest degree), however, you need to figure out what works best for you. It is important to note that if you evaluate multiple degrees under one WES profile, it costs the same as evaluating only one degree. This is the process:

  • Register an account with WES here.
  • Fill out a profile and provide information about your degree(s). Please, make sure every detail is correct and you cross-check a couple times.
  • Pay the evaluation fee of 220 CAD and the courier fee of 85 CAD (for them to ship your evaluation back to you). I recommend you pay the 85 CAD courier fee instead of the 7 CAD regular postage fee so that when your evaluation is returned, it is returned speedily and securely and doesn’t get stuck in the local post system. As soon as you pay, you will receive a unique WES Number.
    • Note: When you put in all your degree details, the WES system will automatically pull out the documents you are required to send to them for verification. For most countries, only transcripts are required. Unfortunately, those with Nigerian degrees are required to provide a whole lot more than before due to a number of people sending in falsified documents (Naija, why oh why?). This is where you need to decide whether to use only your higher degree if you have one from another country. List of requirements for Nigerian degrees:
      • Degree Certificate
      • Academic Transcripts
      • Final Secondary Examination Results
      • WAEC / NECO Scratch Card

The requirements were the same for everyone until late 2018 when they couldn’t take the number of fraudulent documents coming their way from Nigeria anymore. Too bad!

  • Pay the evaluation fee of 220 CAD and the courier fee of 85 CAD (for them to ship your evaluation back to you). I recommend you pay the 85 CAD courier fee instead of the 7 CAD regular postage fee so that when your evaluation is returned, it is returned speedily and securely and doesn’t get stuck in the local post system. As soon as you pay, you will receive a unique WES Number.
  • Apply for your transcripts and documents. If your school has a cut-throat process, all the more reason to ensure that you have enough time to go through this process. Also, remember to factor in the cost for requesting transcripts.
  • Send your required documents to WES. Make sure you follow all the instructions. All transcripts and documents must be sealed and signed or stamped across the seal fold of the envelope and every envelope must have your WES number on it. Courier shipping via DHL from Lagos to the WES Toronto office costs about $65 or 86 CAD or 23,000 Naira
  • Wait for WES to receive your documents and complete your verification. It takes 20 working days from when they receive all your required document for them to send you an evaluation report. This is the report that you need for your Canadian PR application.

Step 4 – Take your IELTS Test & Get Results.

Time Required: 13 Days

Your speaking test will be on a different date from your writing, reading and listening tests. You will receive an email a few weeks to your test date with details of your speaking test (usually the speaking test is the same week as your main test date). All the other three tests will be on the day you chose when you registered. Give the test your best shot, keep calm and pick up your results two weeks later. You will be able to pick up your results 13 days after your main test date.

Step 5 – Create an Online Express Entry Profile.

Now that you have your WES evaluation report and your language test results, you are ready to create an Express Entry profile. Real quick, use this tool to find out what your exact CRS Score will be. This time, you have the actual information and you can tell what your exact score will be. You don’t know what the cut off score will be but you can check what the cut-off for the last draw was (the week or two weeks before you check) here. That way, you have an idea whether you stand a high chance in the pool or not.

This profile will close within 60 days of opening it if you do not submit, so try to complete it as soon as you can. You will be asked personal information, work history, test scores, degree details, etc. All these details will add up to give you a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score. Make sure you are truthful and consistent. As soon as you complete and cross-check your Express Entry profile, go ahead and submit it.

You have officially joined the Express Entry Pool.

Step 6 – Wait for an Invitation to Apply (ITA)

Time Required: 1 Day to Indefinite…

Every two weeks, a draw is made from the pool of submitted Express Entry profiles. This draw is done to offer ITAs to candidates. An ITA basically says…’you can now begin the official application process for PR.’ The exact cut-off score is determined by the number of selections the committee plans to choose from that draw. For example, if they need 3,500 selections from that draw, they pick the highest 3,500 candidates in the pool on that date and the 3500th person’s score becomes the cut-off score. If there is a tie for the 3500th person, they use factors like date and time of submission to break the tie. Just as a guideline, the cut-off scores for January and February, 2019 were as follows: 449 (Jan 9), 443 (Jan 23) and 438 (Jan 30). See the full list of cut-off scores here.

If you are one of the top candidates, you can receive an ITA in the next draw from when you submit your profile. Technically, if you submit your profile today and the draw is tomorrow, you can get an ITA in one day. However, if your score falls short, you can stay in the pull and keep doing other things to improve your score. See a detailed explanation on ways to improve your score while you’re in the Express Entry pool. After 12 months, if you don’t get selected from the pool, it will expire and you will have to create a new one.

Also, white waiting for an ITA, you can register in the Job Bank and start looking for jobs.

Step 7 – Apply for Canadian Permanent Residency.

Cost: 785 USD or 1,040 CAD or 282,600 Naira per adult applicant.

113 USD or 150 CAD or 54,000 Naira per dependent children.

Time Required: 6 months.

Now that you have been invited to apply, you will need to prepare your application and submit all your documents. It is important to note that your fee of 1,040 CAD is split into 550 CAD application fee and 490 CAD right to permanent residence fee. If you do not successfully get PR, the 490 CAD will be refunded to you. You only have 60 days to complete this application!

Documents Required:

  • Application Fee (see above)
  • Test Results
  • Academic Verification Report
  • Digital Photographs
  • Medical Examination – every country has an approved list of panel physicians who can provide a medical examination. In Nigeria, there are three in Lagos and one in Abuja and the costs may vary slightly. See here to find their addresses and book an appointment.
  • Police Certificates – if you have lived in a country for more than 6 months in a row, within the last 10 years, you have to include police reports from each of those countries (including your home country, where you currently live). The cost of obtaining a police certificate will differ based on where you live and where you are requesting one from. See how to get a police certificate in each country.
  • Passport Biodata Page
  • Reference or Experience Work Letter – your former and current employers listed on your Express Entry Profile must all provide letters to prove your work history with them.
  • Proof of Funds – you must provide a letter from your bank vouching for the availability of funds required for relocation. These are the amount required for relocation:
    • 1 Family Member (you alone) : 12,669 CAD or 3.46 million Naira
    • 2 Family Members : 15,772 CAD or 4.31 million Naira
    • 3 Family Members : 19,390 CAD or 5.30 million Naira
    • 4 Family Members : 23,542 CAD or 6.43 million Naira
    • 5 Family Members : 26,701 CAD or 7.29 million Naira
    • 6 Family Members : 30,114 CAD or 8.22 million Naira
    • 7 Family Members : 33,528 CAD or 9.15 million Naira
    • For each additional family member : $3,414 or 932,000 Naira.
  • Other Documents – depending on whether you have children, you are divorced, married, and so on, there is a host of other documents required including name change certificate, birth certificate of child(ren), marriage certificate, etc. Find the full details here.

Once you have all your complete documents, you will be able to fill out your application on the portal and upload scanned copies of all your documents. Make sure you follow the guidelines for clarity, size and resolution of all documents. You will also be able t make your payment.

Step 8 – Bio-metrics

At some point, you may be called to submit your bio metrics at a local embassy or VFS.

Step 9 – Wait and live your life!

According to the IRCC, 80% of all applicants receive a response within 6 months. Just spend 6 months worrying. Just go about your business. You can log into your profile from time to time to check what stage your application has reached. For some people, it comes in 2 months and for other it takes 6! It doesn’t matter, just keep living your life.

Step 9 – Receive a PPR – Passport Request email – Ready for Visa

Once you get this letter, you can send in your passports. Your PR approval will also come with a deadline when you have to enter into Canada or else your PR will be invalidated. This is usually between 6 months to 1 year from the approval. You are ready to go!

    1. You can share the information via your whatsapp or your email by yourself by clicking on share link on the right tab of this post.

    2. You mean she has taken the pain to type all this and you still want it via email? Why can’t you copy and paste or bookmark the link???? You people want to be given everything clearly. Put some skin in the game or stay back in Nigeria eishhh

  1. Hi Funmi,
    Please can you send me a list of trusted agencies that can help through the process and how much they charge for everything?

    Also i came across this agency : DC Law offices. I say them on Facebook but dont know hiw geniune thay are. Thanks.

    1. Like Funmi mentioned, you can do it yourself following the guidelines she listed. I got mine 3 weeks ago and did all by myself.

      Good job Funmi

  2. Hello Funmi,

    Thank you for this thread, but by virtue of thie thread i am already uninterested in canada already!!!can you Please assist with a country whose process is not this tedious for experienced/skilled hands?

    Thank you once again.

    Kudos and good job.

  3. Dear Funmi,
    Thank you for fulfilling your promise in this article. It’s so interesting and full of ideas. I have started the process of getting my family relocated to Canada but I was advised on using my pension as proof of funds and my question is I don’t know if it’s allowed.

    Again what about Australia? Are both countries immigration processes similar.? Thanks

    1. Yes you can but remember you can only access 25% of your pension on job loss. So in reality that’s the only part you can claim in your proof of funds. I’ve seen many people use it successfully. Also, the process for Australia isn’t so dissimilar to the Canadian, but there’re differences. In addition to IELTS there’s PTE for language test. Also you don’t need to show proof of funds, list of occupations is fewer, application fee is much higher, fee for evaluating your degree and experience is higher, you earn more points the higher your experience, age isn’t as much a barrier. Same points for people aged 33–39.

  4. Hi,

    Can a school certificate holder apply for permanent residency?

    What are the chances?

    Your timely response shall be appreciated.


  5. Thank you Funmi for this write up . It’s really enlightening. However , can you please write on how to apply for student visa in Canada . The process involved, do’s and don’t , etc

  6. I work in an immigration firm as a visa documentation manager. Obviously my company does not want her staff to succeed. Do I stand any chance of getting a PR. what if I put the money all at once in my account

  7. Thank You; Thank You, Thank You.
    This is very detailed and self explanatory.
    Thank You for this. I’ll give this my best shot.

    Warm Regards.

  8. Thank you Funmi!

    I really appreciate this information, but I’ll love it better if you can send it step by step as arranged here into my email.

    Yours sincerely.

    1. Hello,

      Please copy and paste it into your email. I don’t really understand how you could ask for something like this. At least do a tiny bit of the work.


  9. To avoid wasting time and money, do your CRS score calculation first; at least you know the degrees you have. You can assume an ielts score (average of 7-9). This will indicate if you have a chance of getting and ITA or not.

    The steps are as simple as funmi stated. You don’t need an agent. But if you can’t read/comprehend and still want to part with your money to agents; I can give you my account number.

  10. Good evening, what does the time required specification for each step mean. Does it mean that when you start that particular step you only have that duration of time to complete. A little confused

  11. Gd day funmi your article is interesting me i don’t have such money pls i want to know how i can relocate to Belgium or new Zealand tnk you

  12. Thanks so much ma’am, can you link me with a genius &Trusted agency? I’ll appreciate DAT. Money isn’t d main problem

  13. Hi Funmi,

    This article is highly juicy with every nitty gritty required by any individual seeking for PR in Canada.

    With such step by step info with references, I don’t think I need any agency to process anything. I’ve already mine and hope it would be a success before the end of 2019.

    Thanks once again. God bless

  14. As someone who has gone through all of these, via PNP and is currently in Canada, I can no one could have said it better. This is one of the most succinct and aptly written guides on the process I’ve ever come across. Well done Funmi!

  15. Thanks a lot Funmi!
    Kindly send this to my email. I’ll be contacting you intermittently for clarity on some things. Thanks again.

  16. Hi Guys,

    We are in Nigeria and Edmonton and we offer this service at a token.

    We also offer IELTS preparatory master class in Lagos.

    If you need an agent to help you out on this journey, kindly contact us on 08094489756 or [email protected]

    Wishing everyone a smooth journey and a purposeful driven life in Canada.


  17. Kudos funmi, very detailed and concise write up on the Canada PR process, however I will appreciate if you can do a similar piece on how to relocate a family to Australia for PR.
    Kindly reply through my email.
    Thank you and God bless.

  18. Thanks Funmi.
    For those traveling with their spouse, will the spouse still have to go through same process of verifying his/her academic documents, as well as take the professional English test exam?

    In summary, what is required of the spouse of the applicant?

  19. Well done again Funmi. I see lots of progress you are making. And thanks for this info. Will appreciate if you can help with similar info for “Provincial Nomination”. That’s the seemingly easiest way I can be above the CRS cutoffs.

  20. Nice piece ma’am. Kudos.
    I’d like to ask about Norway or Finland, working and studying in these countries. Can I get a guide on how to get visa and please? Thank you.

  21. Hi Funny, thanks a lot for this. It is most insightful. Please kindly update on steps to follow if after the IELTS you dont make the cutoff score do you stay on the express entry list or look for alternatives such as PNP or study visa. Would really appreciate your response

  22. Hi Funmi, Good job !!!

    If i have a B2 in English (Waec) and MSc Degree from university of Manchester, UK; whuch of these can i use in place of IELTS ?


  23. For those saying it is expensive, don’t you think it is a great price to pay to be in an environment where things are working fine and human life is valued more?
    Migrating to Canada is a good investment if you ask me.

  24. Thanks for this vital information put together, Funmi…this is what many agencies will charge hundreds of thousands of naira which would amount to no success…
    God bless you tremendously!!!

  25. Well researched information, Funmi.
    It’s a shame though a lot of Nigerians are still facilitating brain drain! With the hundreds and thousands of Nigerians eager to leave the shores with a pitiable 3 milion naira or more in their kitty bank accounts as minimum sustenance money, in Canada, one wonders if there is hope for the nation. Wake up people, look inwards, there are lots of jobs begging to be done in Nigeria! Let’s make Nigeria great and leave a legacy.

  26. Hello Funmi, Thank you for the analysis above, They are very helpful. I want to ask, At what point can one add a spouse to the application and what it requires if you are adding a spouse.

  27. Thank you Funmi and God bless..please what if one has discrepancies btw age on the data
    page of his passport and university transcript,would it be an issue in the application process??

  28. Hi Guys,

  30. Good morning funmi. Thanks for this piece. I have been trying to fill the eligibility form but its not giving me result yet. Please how do i go about it?

  31. Thank you so much for this detailed information.

    Please may I confirm if the WES documents we need to send are the Original documents of our credentials or photocopies ?

    Thank you so much.

  32. Ms Funmi,

    Thank you for the information.

    My question, if I register for evaluation of certificate through WES. Do I need to pay $305 CAD service fees before I can get my reference number?

  33. Hi Funmi.
    Thank you so much for this elaborate and detailed Information. No one has ever simplified the canadian Immigration process like you have done. Well done really.
    Ive been on and off the process since 2017 but having resumed fully to complete all applications, can u explain what exactly the Final Secondary Examination Result is? We went to the same secondary school JCSS so please u can be more direct with your answer. Thank you

  34. Really? Wow. I’m actually planning to migrate with my fiancee. She’s a fashion designer and I’m a web designer with many websites under my portfolio. What would be your suggestion on how to approach this. You can reach out to me by clicking my profile name below or via twitter or IG: @jimohib. Thank you.

  35. Hi Funmi,
    thanks for all the above information. My problem is that I used IQAS instead of WES and I’ve not heard anything from them since my documents were sent. I’m somewhat concerned, any advice?

  36. Hello Funmi, Thank you so much for this timely write up. I have question from Step 3:
    Evaluation of document by WES
    Question: what do they mean by Waec/neck scratch card?.
    Thank you

  37. Thanks immensely Funmi for the elaborate piece. Pls, am desirous of migrating to USA, can you please give me a reliable name of an agent that could assist me in my application for permanent residency to America? Thanks and God bless the good work you are doing.

  38. Thanks millions miles on this highlights estremed sister fumi, kudos to ur efforts GOD bless in all….

  39. I would recommend Pals Concierge in Lagos to any one in search of a true immigration agency. I worked with then and got my PR for a very small token. Free eligibility test, IELTS materials and consultancy services on how to go about obtaining funds and employment letters till you get your PR. I’m not advocating or rallying around for then but trust me, their top notch services are one in town.

  40. If our home was any better shey we go dey go through all these processes just to run away? It’s just disheartening. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  41. I think it means the regular waec / neco scratch card you’d buy and that you submit alongside the other documents “unscratched” so probably they’d confirm the results you send by themselves.

  42. You have really done well for the in-dept information’s on Canada Permanent Residence (CRP). Indeed l am grateful. Thank you

  43. Thanks Funmi. I just have a question can I do the academics IELTS in place of the general one as u have plans to further my studies when I get there but that is if I get a scholarship if not I still have to work for a while first

  44. Pingback: My Homepage
  45. If its for migration, you simply have to stick to the General IELTS. So sorry, buh unfortunately there is no negotiations on whether you are going to study or not😥. Its either you are migrating or going to study. No in betweens😒

  46. Please I want to find out about the process of sending the documents to WES Canada. I’m currently in Nigeria and I have the transcript of my masters from the UK. Do I have to pay myself to DHL to ship it to Canada and back to me? Should I pay to DHL what will cover for the return of the certificate back to me or I’ll have to pay for that service online?
    Please your response will highly be appreciated. Thanks

    1. The return payment will be made directly on the WES portal, where you can choose how quickly you want it returned and pay for that. You only need to pay for a courier delivery of your transcripts to WES.

  47. Thank you for this information I want to make enquiry for people in the medical profession, how will we go about the permanent residence

  48. Merci beaucoup. If someone needs french coaching for tef exam to migrate to canada contact me on 09093369807

  49. Hi Funmi. Thanks for your efforts. Pls , if I am applying as the principal applicant, are there requirements for the dependent applicants like wife and kid ?

  50. This exposition is completely priceless,

    U did extremely well

    I’ll mail U 2 get a little clarification

    Thumbs up

  51. The system is a point based system and you lose 5points for every year you are over 30years.

    As an example, a 30yr old person is 25points better off than a 35years old.

    However, there are other points to be accumulated based on Education level, score in your IELTS, marital status etc.

    So a 35yr can possibly have a higher overall point than a 30yr old.

  52. Good morning Funmi. I have seen all your good work thank u so much, buh I’m sorry to say please don’t be offended, I still need your help just got to know about you through a friend. I and my family want to relocate to Canada permanently, i and my 3 daughters want to move first so that my husband will be sending us money every month for our up keep until we are fully balanced then he will start his process and come over to meet us too. I look forward to hearing from you. Best regards Lucy Victor

  53. This is the most detailed information I have ever read on Canadian express entry. Thank you very much, God bless you

  54. Funmi, thank you very much. This is the most precise, unambiguous and helpful Canada PR Guide that I have been reading online. Others are just jam packed with very confusing stories in them.
    I have learnt a lot of things from your article especially about the cost and timelines. I appreciate you.

  55. Greetings Funmi. I sincerely have to say a big thank you for taking time out to outline the steps for emigrating to Canada. People like you are needed for providing invaluable informations such as this one.

    Quick question. My aunt is a permanent residence inn Alberta province since 2014. She’s keen on having both myself and younger sister in Canada. However, she feels the website is full of ambiguity.

    How can she be able to send an invitation to visit if possible and the needed steps to serve as a guide?

    I’m taking IELTS this coming September though.

    Thanks once again.

  56. Thanks Funmi fr a wonderful overlay. For those still wondering about the document aside of this, here is a short breakdown. There are three main documents you need to create your Express Entry profile.

    #1 – Identification Documents
    You need a valid passport in order to create your Express Entry profile. In the creation stage, you will be prompted to input details directly from your passport.
    If your passport is expiring in the near future, you can still create your Express Entry profile and then apply for your new passport. But, once you receive your new passport, be sure to go into your Express Entry account and update your passport information.

    #2 – Language Test Results

    You must prove that you are proficient in English or French (or both, for bonus points!). To do this, you have to submit results from one of Canada’s approved language tests. This is required even for native English and French speakers.
    These tests assess a candidate’s language ability in four areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

    For English, the two approved tests are the CELPIP-General and the IELTS General. For French, the two approved tests are the TEF and the TCF. Your language test results are valid for up to two years, so if you took your test more than two years before you submit your application, you’ll need to sit anot
    her test.
    Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB):
    Each of the four tests use a different scoring system. To keep track of the results, Canada has developed Canadian Language Benchmarks, or CLB levels. Each language test score can be converted to a corresponding CLB level, from CLB Level 1 to CLB Level 10, so that the different tests can be compared to one another.
    To maximize your CRS score, you should aim for a score of at least CLB 9 in each of the four components of the test.
    On the IELTS General exam, CLB 9 is equal to a score of 8 in listening, and a score of 7 in speaking, reading, and writing.

    #3 – Education Documents
    Proof of education is only required for candidates in the Federal Skilled Worker program. But, if you’re applying through one of the other programs, we highly recommend providing proof of education or else you will be missing out on a lot of CRS points.

  58. Hi Funmi, thanks so much for this loaded piece of information. I really hope people take advantage of it to empower themselves. Recently I also came a NEW program that’s more simplified and its suitable for people with lower academic qualification, no need for proof of fund, intact you can make with Low IELTS score as low as 5.0 You can equally take a look here >>>

  59. This is well detailed and appreciated. You honestly can’t imagine how happy I am with this info.

    Send me ur account details pls let me show my gratitude with a token.

    You are such a blessing to have taking ur precious time to compile this write up for us.

  60. Step 9 – Wait and live your life!

    “According to the IRCC, 80% of all applicants receive a response within 6 months. Just spend 6 months worrying. Just go about your business. You can log into your profile from time to time to check what stage your application has reached. For some people, it comes in 2 months and for other it takes 6! It doesn’t matter, just keep living your life.”

    “Just spend 6 months worrying” should change to “Don’t spend 6 months worrying”
