Selecting Candidates from the Expression of Interest (EOI) Pool

Immigration Services conducts draws to select candidates from the Expression of Interest (EOI) pool, inviting them to submit a completed application to the SINP. There will be one EOI pool draw every three months.

  • Candidates who have submitted a complete EOI profile to the pool will be eligible for selection based on highest total points score.
  • As pool selections are ongoing, candidates are encouraged to submit their EOI only after they have completed all activities related to the points grid, such as completing exploratory visits or obtaining language credentials. Once submitted, candidates will not be permitted to update their submitted EOI.
  • Candidates who are not immediately selected will continue to remain in the EOI pool either until they are selected based on their points score, or their EOI has expired and is withdrawn.

Please review the updated materials, including the Application Guide, for more information.
