Do I need a job offer to get into the Express Entry pool?
“No, in most cases you don’t need a job offer.
But, you will need one if you:
are eligible for either the Federal Skilled Worker Program or the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
do not have enough money to support yourself and your family in Canada.
Even if you don’t need one, you may want to try and find a valid job offer. It will give you a much higher point score, and so a better chance of being invited to apply.”

According to the new statistics released by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada, 90% of ITAs (invitation to apply) were given to candidates who did not have any job offer from any Canadian employer in express entry Q1 and Q2 2017. These have also been the largest beneficiaries of the targeted changes to the rankings of candidates. It was 62% when points were not reduced due to no job offer by IRCC, 11 months earlier 1n 2016. This data released by Immigration department of Canada confirms that the reduction of points due to job offer is actually in favor of candidates who have higher scores for human capital (age, proficiency in English and French, education, and work experience). It is exactly true for Federal Skilled Worker Class candidates in Express entry according to CIC news.
Human Capital is based on age of applicant, language proficiency in French and English, educational qualification and work experience. According to IRCC, all these factors are interlinked and important in order to provide CRS (comprehensive ranking system) scores. The maximum achievable points score is 600 points.
Because of this change, a reduction of points between 50 to 200 from 600 points has been witnessed depending upon the position. Other changes have been made like extra points for Study in Canada. The constituents of a qualifying job were also broadened. The time period for candidates to submit a completed application after receiving ITAs has been increased.
As a result of these changes, the number candidates invited without job offer has been increased from 62% to 90%. The number of candidates with Canadian study also increased from 30% to 40 %. More people became eligible to submit their profile into express entry. Applicants can submit express entry profile without any job offer. The purpose of reduction in job offer points is to make Candidates reliant on their human capital score for ITAs.
