Portal: Provinces and territories

This portal allows provinces and territories to access and nominate candidates in the Express Entry system through their Provincial Nominee Programs to meet local labour market needs. IRCC requires users of the portal to enter an electronic credential registered with 1 of these services: GCKey or Sign-In Partner (INTERAC® sign-in service).

This online service will be unavailable from 12:00 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, September 26, 2023 Eastern time, in order to perform system maintenance.

It takes up to 5 days for online applications to appear in your account

After we receive your application, it may take up to 5 days for you to see it in your account. We are working to shorten this wait time. If your application does not appear after 5 days, contact us and report a technical problem. This issue will not delay the processing of your application.
