canada-flag01Jeremiah Shea has over 15 years global experience as a Canada Immigration Visa Office Manager and seven years as the owner of Shea Canadian Immigration Consultancy.

Jeremiah Shea has a wealth of knowledge and experience with Canada’s immigration processes. He is exceptionally well-qualified to provide expert Canadian immigration & Canada visa advice. He will make the best case possible when applying on your behalf for a Canadian visitor visa, study or work permit, or permanent residence in Canada, including family class Sponsorship and Express Entry economic submissions. Concerning Express Entry, now is an excellent time to apply:


  • Canada is accepting 330,000 permanent residents in 2019, close to 60% as economic applicants. Those with skilled work experience may apply under Canada’s Express Entry system based on their English/French language skills, post-secondary education and skilled/professional work experience.
  • Candidates who have studied and worked in Canada legally or those outside Canada with post-grad degrees and professional work experience have the strongest prospects of being accepted.
  • Once in the Express Entry pool, candidates are issued “Invitations to Apply” (ITAs) for permanent residence based on their Express Entry score. If you have the minimum Express Entry score you will receive an ITA. And so far this year, Canada has issued 71,700 ITAs.
  • Over the past few years the minimum cut-off score required to receive an ITA has steadily increased. While the average cut-off score for EE (general) draws was 438 points in 2017 and 443 in 2018, it currently averages 457.
  • The move to higher cut-off scores in 2018/19 underlines the importance of getting your maximum possible Express Entry points to have a chance of receiving an ITA.

If you would like Mr. Shea to assess your chances to immigrate to Canada, please complete an Assessment Questionnaire and upload your résumé/CV with the submission.

To ask Mr. Shea a question, please complete the “Have Questions” submission. (For information about finding work in Canada please see the links on this website. Mr. Shea does not provide employment search services.)

Mr. Shea personally reviews all incoming submissions.  If you do not receive an email from Mr. Shea within seven days he is either unable to assist you or you do not appear to meet the minimum requirements for the Canadian immigration program you identified.

Canada’s Express Entry system is “complex”, and can be challenging:

  • According to the data found in Immigration Canada’s most recent Express Entry year-end report, of the nearly 280,000 Express Entry profiles submitted in 2018, only 33% led to Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence.
  • Many were likely found ineligible or failed to lead to ITAs due to submission errors or missed opportunities to obtain higher scores.
  • As the New York Times noted in an article dated 3 March 2017, Canada’s Express Entry system “is more complex than advertised.” If you retain Jeremiah Shea as your licensed Canadian Immigration Consultant, he will make the process clear and manage it strategically for you.
  • As you will see from the Testimonial page on this website, people who turn to Mr. Shea to do their profile have notably improved their Express Entry chances. It pays to have the professional help of someone like Jeremiah Shea.
  • Mr. Shea will prepare your Express Entry online submission entirely on your behalf — no matter where you reside — using the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) online Portal for Authorized Representatives like Mr. Shea.
  • Once accepted into the Express Entry pool candidates are selected based on the points they obtain under the complicated Express Entry “Comprehensive Ranking System” – the cut-off score.
  • Mr. Shea will go over your background in detail.  In your online Express Entry submission he will ensure that you get the maximum points for your:
    • language test results;
    • educational background;
    • work experience;

    • if you are married, for your combined scores as a couple under Express Entry.
