Since July 6, Canada has held its fourth all-program Express Entry draw.
To Apply (ITA) for permanent residence, IRCC issued 2,250 Invitations. The Comprehensive Ranking System score (CRS) cut-off score was 525. Express Entry is one of Canada’s most well-known immigration pathways for a skilled apprentice.
There was no program particular for this draw, which means that candidates from the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) were qualified to be invited.
Since all-program draws resumed on July 6, generally, 7,500 candidates have been issued ITAs. The number of candidates invited has constantly increased by 250 with all draws while the least CRS score is progressively declining each week by eight or nine points. The present cut-off score is 33 points lesser than the July 6 draw, which was 557. Today’s CRS represents a refusal of 8 points compared to the previous draw on August 3.
The immigration paused all-program Express Entry draws were, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for more than 18 months. Only candidates who qualified for permanent residence under the CEC or the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) were invited to apply during this time. On the other hand, in September 2021, CEC draws were also paused.
As the global COVID-19 pandemic was growing, the break of the draws was in response to a great number of permanent residence applications submitted. During this time Canada’s border closed and travel rules were altered often.
Changes to Express Entry in 2023
Express Entry focuses to target skilled workers who suit well to close the gaps in Canada’s labour force by responding to labour market requirements, including French language immigrants outside Quebec. Canada plans to receive 55,900 permanent residents through Express Entry in 2022, and this amount will severely rise to 111,500 by the end of 2024.
IRCC can process applications more capably as the candidates have previously met an eligibility baseline, depending on their CRS score, by inviting candidates through Express Entry. Now that draws have restarted, for new applications, IRCC aims for a processing standard of six months.
Though, rather than relying only on a CRS score, IRCC is now allowing for holding Express Entry draws that target precise skills and professions in the future. So, Canada can choose more immigrants who are previously primed for achievement in the labour market.
The target is to increase the involvement that a newcomer can make in their societies, so when they arrive, they’re set up for success, but also that they’re going to meet the requirements of the community where they’re going to live.
About The Express Entry
Express Entry is the application organization system for three Canadian immigration programs:
* Canadian Experience Class (CEC),
* Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP
* Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates in the Express Entry pool are previously qualified for a minimum of one of these programs.
To rank candidates’ profiles, the Express Entry uses, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), a points-based system. The top-scoring candidates can get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and can then apply for PR.
An IRCC officer reviews the application and decides on your profile after the candidate applies. The officer may schedule an interview and will also request biometrics or ask for more documents. Once all these processes are complete, the candidate is now a permanent resident of Canada, if approved, and one step nearer to becoming a citizen in Canada.
