An Invitation to Apply (ITA) is offered to any candidate in the Express Entry pool who has been selected to apply for immigration to Canada by the federal government, a Canadian province or territory, or a Canadian employer. An ITA is offered if a candidate:

  • is nominated by a province or territory; or
  • has a valid job offer from a Canadian employer (subject to the Labour Market Impact Assessment in place at that time).
