canada-flag01Jeremiah Shea has over eight years experience as the owner of Shea Canadian Immigration Consultancy.

He will make the best case possible when applying on your behalf for a Canadian visitor visa, study or work permit, permanent residence in Canada, including family class sponsorship and Express Entry economic submissions, and Canadian citizenship.

If you would like Mr. Shea to assess your chances to immigrate to Canada, please go to the Menu section of this site and complete an Assessment Questionnaire. Please upload your résumé with the submission, include your date of birth, and a copy of your spouse’s résumé, if married.  

To ask Mr. Shea a question, please complete the “Have Questions” submission. Please provide details of the purpose of your inquiry, (e.g., what type of Canadian visa you wish to obtain) and brief information concerning your post-secondary education and work/travel history. (Mr. Shea only responds to submissions in English or French.)

Mr. Shea personally reviews all incoming submissions.  If you do not receive a response 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.

CANADIAN ECONOMIC IMMIGRATION: Generally, those who wish to settle in Canada permanently as economic immigrants must apply through Canada’s Express Entry system. If you are under 35 years old, have studied and/or worked in Canada legally, and/or have a post-grad degree and professional work experience outside Canada, you have the best chance of making it.


  • To make up for immigration shortfalls due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada has significantly increased its planned immigration intake for 2022-23, with a target of over 400,000 new permanent residents this year.
  • Most of those accepted as Economic migrants are processed via Canada’s online Express Entry system.
  • Those who would like to be considered may apply based on their English/French language skills, post-secondary education and skilled/professional work experience.
  • 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 and qualify for a program draw, you should receive an ITA.
  • All of the EE draws in 2021 were for members of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC), since most of these candidates already reside in Canada, are generally unaffected by current COVID-19 travel restrictions and can become permanent residents of Canada relatively easily.
  • There have been no CEC draws since mid-September, when the cut off score had risen from the mid-300 range in early 2021 to 462 for the September 2021 CEC draw.
  • Canada issued close to 115,000 Express Entry ITAs in 2021. At the same time, the number of candidates in the EE pool grew to over 190,000, up considerably from the start of the year, when there were just over 147,000 in the pool. This likely reflects a growth in CEC candidates along with Federal Skilled Worker candidates outside Canada waiting for Canada to resume EE draws for those categories.
  • Future EE cut-off scores are impossible to predict. To maximize one’s chances, one should aim for the highest possible Express Entry score – maximizing your personal score – to have the best possible chance of getting an ITA.
  • 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!
  • Jeremiah Shea will prepare your Express Entry online submission entirely on your behalf remotely — no matter where you reside — using Immigration Canada’s online Portal for Authorized Representatives.
