It is great news for the Express Entry candidates as Immigrants, Refugees and Citizens Canada (IRCC) has announced to hold an Express Entry draw in the early of 2023 for the same. The IRCC is planning to hold a draw for the candidates from the Express Entry system based on the needs of the labor market. Approach Aramvisas, the best Canada immigration office in Chennai to get required preparation for this target Express Entry draw.
It is also expected that the IRCC is planning to discuss with the different sector stakeholders to create new categories as per the Canadian legislation followed by various technical implementations. The recently passed Bill C-19 announced by the Canadian immigration minister also indicates the draw for the Express Entry candidates that meet various economical needs. IRCC is also planning to invite the candidates depending on their language, occupation, or educational qualification instead of their Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS).
Why would Express Entry change?
Sean Fraser, the minister of immigration, stated that without the modifications, the Express Entry system does not allow IRCC to alter Invite to Apply (ITAs) to fit in-demand skills or certificates.
“The Express Entry system as it exists today is probable to bring in more people that might not be exactly suited to the needs of the Canadian economy if you’re in a situation in which you have an enormous amount of implementations that are all in one specific industry, and that sector doesn’t have high needs in Canada,” Fraser said.
As we witnessed throughout the pandemic, IRCC proved that it is free to invite as many applicants as it likes for any programme. One notable instance occurred on February 13, 2021, when Canada extended invites to all Canadian Experience Class (CEC) applicants in the pool, totaling more than 27,000 people. Due to COVID-19 travel limits, IRCC was able to alter its tactics according to the legislation in effect at the time and invite individuals for Express Entry based on which programme they qualified for. This was first done to target Express Entry candidates who qualified for one of two programmes: the CEC because they were likely already in Canada and thus were exempt from travel limitations, or candidates who had a nomination from a nominating organization.
Hence, alteration in Express Entry can potentially increase the immigration rate in Canada by satisfying its labor market needs.
In the meantime, the invitation for the all-program draw is happening continuously and has its first draw on July 20 by inviting 1,500 candidates with a score of 557.
