With this note, the Canadian immigration department has decreased there CRS score from 786 to 441 only and have decided to welcome more than 150,000 refugees this year from around the globe. So let’s migrate to Canada! ✈️
Here’s the checklist to file for immigration.
Get your ECA Report

Once the fees are paid you need to send all the original transcript to WES-Toronto office. For further information or to register yourself please check this link.
Second, the most important thing is the IELTS score
This is perhaps the most important phase and will decide the fate of your application. Make sure you score as much as you can in IELTS general test. Better marks will have the best chance to fasten the immigration process. And to get the best score there no other option than hard work because the wise man said: “hard work pays off “. You can either register for IELTS either through IDP or British Council. Both are equally good and hold equal importance.
Apply for Expression of Interest
Once you have an ECA report and IELTS scores ready you are good to go and file for EOI. Make sure before filling for EOI you should check this link and get and approximate CRS score. Anything above 420 is treated as good scores and considered as a potential candidate. Please note the EOI application remains only for 12 months in the queue and cut-off is revised after every 10-20 days.
Here comes the Invitation request.
If the CRS score clears the cut-off you will receive the formal invitation letter from the Government of Canada. This is often considered as a letter of intent from the immigration department. The rest is a formality that you have to go through i.e medical and police verification.
