On September 14 Immigration and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued 3,250 calls for applications in the latest Express Entry The draw, which is the sixth since all program recalls resumed on July 6.

Minimum cut Comprehensive ranking system The result (CRS) was 511. There was no set program for the draw, which means that invitations were issued to candidates from Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Federal Skilled Program (FSTP). Express Entry is one of the most prominent immigration pathways to Canada.

Until the last draw on August 31, the number of candidates with an ITA increased by 250 with each draw. Last week saw a noticeable increase of 500 ITA and today’s pull is a continuation of this trend. There was also a gradual decrease in the minimum CRS score, which was lost between eight or nine points in each tie. However, this tie is different as there was only a five point drop. The minimum CRS score in the July 6 draw was 557.

IRCC has suspended Express Entry withdrawals for all programs for more than 18 months, starting in December 2020. During this time, only candidates eligible for permanent residence under CEC or Regional Nominee Program (PNP) are invited to apply. However, CEC recalls were temporarily halted in September 2021.

Canada is on its way to receive nearly 432,000 immigrants

Immigration Minister Sean Fraser recently said that by the end of 2022 Canada will break its current record of 405,330 new immigrants in a year. As of the end of June, Canada has already received more than 300,000 new permanent residents in 2022.

Canada has received 40,785 immigrants so far this year through Express Entry. It is possible that if immigration continues at its current pace, it could overtake Canada until 2022 Immigration Levels Plan A target of nearly 432,000.

To facilitate these numbers, IRCC has taken measures Like making the application process 100% digital as well as hiring an additional 1,250 new employees.

Canada continues to push for more immigration as it tries to deal with a historically low unemployment rate as well as more million vacancies. An increased amount of retirement over the next decade, combined with a lower birth rate, means Canada is unable to support the workforce or the economy without immigration.

Coming changes in 2023

To better target gaps in the workforce, IRCC plans to make a Major Change in Express Entry in 2023. Most importantly, these changes will give the department the authority to issue ITAs to individuals with specific work experience, education, or language ability. A candidate can be any of the groups they think will be well placed to support the Canadian economy and workforce. This will have an impact on the significance of CRS scores in some cases and may become less significant in some future draws.

in June, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser Explain the rationale for this proposal While on stage at Collision, A technical conference, which states, “If we can highlight the skills that are needed over the next 20 to 30 years, we can bring in people who can get on the ground and make a significant economic impact.”

What is Express Entry?

Express Entry It is the application management system for three Canadian immigration programs: Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Federal Skilled Program (FSTP). Regional Nominee Program (PNP) Candidates in the Express Entry pool are already eligible for at least one of these programs.

Express Entry uses a points-based system, which is Comprehensive ranking system (CRS), to arrange candidate profiles. Candidates with the highest score will receive Invitation to apply (ITA) and she can then apply for permanent residence.

After the candidate is submitted, the IRCC Officer reviews the application and makes a decision. The officer will ask for biometrics and may conduct an interview or request more documents. Once this is complete, if approved, the candidate is now a permanent resident of Canada and one step closer to becoming a Canadian citizen.
