The results of the new draw and the 16 occupations eligible for Express Entry in November. On June 8, Canada invited 932 Express Entry applicants to apply for permanent residency.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited only Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates in the new draw. The minimum score required to enter this draw was 796 points. This is a relatively high score because PNP applicants automatically have 600 points added to their base score under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
The new round of invitations is the largest since Canada invited 1,047 PNP applicants on March 2. In the last Express Entry draw, IRCC invited 589 PNP applicants with a score of at least 741.
What is Express Entry?
The Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class are Canada’s three most popular immigration programmes, and Express Entry is the application management system for them. At least one of these programmes has already qualified PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool.
Express Entry uses a points-based system, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), to evaluate candidates’ profiles. Candidates who score the highest receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and can then submit an application for permanent residency.
An IRCC officer evaluates the application and makes a decision once the applicant submits it. The official asks for biometric data and may schedule an interview or request additional documentation.
If the application is approved, the IRCC issues a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR). After then, permanent residents who have been approved can complete the landing process. They can use pre-entry programmes to assist them in taking the first steps toward establishing in Canada if they are currently outside of the country.
16 new professions eligible for Express Entry
The 2021 National Occupational Classification (NOC) goes into effect in November and allows the following 16 occupations to be eligible for Express Entry:
* Payroll Administrative Clerk;
* Dental assistants and dental technicians;
* Nurse aides, nurse practitioners and patient service workers;
* Pharmacy technicians and pharmacy assistants;
* Elementary and secondary school teacher assistants;
* Sheriffs and bailiffs;
* Correctional Officers;
* Correctional and other law enforcement officers;
* Cosmetologists, electrical technicians, and related occupations;
* Residential and commercial plumbers and service technicians;
* Pest controllers and fumigators;
* Other repairers and service technicians;
* Transportation vehicle drivers;
* Drivers of buses, subways, and other modes of public transit;
* Heavy equipment operators; and
* Aircraft assemblers and aircraft assembly inspectors.
There are also three occupations that will no longer be eligible, including:
* Other artists;
* Recreation, sports and fitness program directors and instructors; and
* Tailors, dressmakers, furriers and milliners.
However, these three occupations may still be eligible for other Canadian immigration programs.
Currently, only occupations that fall under NOC qualification levels 0, A and B are eligible for Express Entry. The new approach specifies the required degree of training, education, experience, and responsibility (TEER) for each employment. It will replace the current four-category skill level structure with a new six-category system. The 16 occupations that were previously ineligible will become eligible through this reclassification.
The following table shows how the new NOC’s six-category system compares to the qualification levels of the current 2016 NOC.
|NOC 2016||NOC 2021|
|Skill Type 0||TEER 0|
|Skill Level A||TEER 1|
|Skill Level B||TEER 2|
|Skill Level B||TEER 3|
|Skill Level C||TEER 4|
|Skill Level D||TEER 5|
According to Statistics Canada, there are two reasons why the skill type model is being replaced by the TEER system. First, the TEER system aims to clarify the level of education and work experience required to practice an occupation. Second, the qualification model leads to an artificial categorization between low-skilled and high-skilled jobs. The introduction of TEER is intended to give stakeholders a better overview of the skills required for each occupation.
