What is a personal reference code for Express Entry? Where can I get a one?
Your personal reference code shows on the screen when you have finished answering the questions in the Come to Canada tool.
It is used to transfer the information from your answers over to the Express Entry profile builder in your account. It looks like this: JM1234567890.
If you access Express Entry directly through your account, you will not get a personal reference code.
The system will ask you to enter the code after you log into your account and click the “Express Entry” button under “What would you like to do today?”
Note: The personal reference code is not the same as the Express Entry profile number. A profile number is given to each completed Express Entry profile and is sent to you in a PDF letter through your account.
