Green and Spiegel - An Immigration Law Firm


I have already applied as a skilled worker, can I apply under CEC?

If you applied as a skilled worker before January 1, 2015: You are allowed to apply under more than one immigration program at the same time. However, if you are accepted to more than one, you will have to choose the one under which your permanent resident status will be granted.

If you applied under Express Entry (on or after January 1, 2015): Once you create a profile in the Express Entry system, if you are accepted into the pool, you will be advised which programs you meet. If you meet multiple programs and you are issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA), the CIC will advise you to which program you should apply.
