Canda Invites Record Number Of Foreigners For Permanent Residentship!

Since IRCC opened the facility after the pandemic-related restrictions were lifted, it was the 5th all-program Express Entry draw.

For skilled newcomers, the Express Entry is one of Canada’s main immigration pathways. 

Candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) were eligible to be invited as there was no program specified for this draw.

What is ITA? Details about the 5th Express Entry draw

One has to first receive an ITA from Canada, if one wants to apply for a permanent residency in Canada. 

One of the most crucial factor one whether or not you will receive an ITA, is the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.

When it comes to the ITA, the ones with highest CRS scorers are the most preferred.

• This draw marks the largest increase in ITA’s, up by 500, since all-program draws resumed on July 6. 

• Until this time, the number of candidates receiving ITAs has been growing by exactly 250 with each draw. 

• For example, the first July draw invited 1,500 candidates, the second 1,750 and so on. 

• There has also been a gradual decline in the minimum CRS score, which has lost between eight or nine points each draw. 

• The initial minimum CRS score was 557. However, this time the cut-off was 516

Express Entry Draw to Undergo Many Changes

In 2023, IRCC shall introduce massive changes to the Express Entry draw. These changes shall help the to issue ITAs that target individuals with specific work experience, education, or language ability groups.

It believes will be well-positioned to support Canada’s economy and labour force.

What it would mean is that in future draws the CRS scores will become less vital. 

At a technology conference at Collision, the Immigration Minister Sean Fraser explained the rationale for this proposal and said that “If we can project skills that are needed over the next 20 to 30 years, we can bring people who can hit the ground running and make a major economic impact.”

For over a period of 18 months, all-program Express Entry draws were paused by IRCC due to the pandemic. 

During this time, only candidates eligible for permanent residence under the CEC or the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) were invited to apply. However, CEC draws were also paused in September 2021.
