668 Express Entry Candidates Invited for Canada PR Visa in Latest Express Draw

The latest express entry draw held on March 18, invites a total 668 express entry candidates for Canada PR Visa that had provincial nomination aligned with Express Entry

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) released the details of the express entry draw held on March 18th, with a total of 668 Express Entry candidates invited to apply for Canada PR Visa.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement was set at 470 points. With 668 ITAs, the total number of ITAs issued this year so far through the express entry program has come to 19,368 invitations.

In the latest express draw, only those express entry candidates were issued ITAs that were having a provincial nomination aligned with the express entry program.

Despite the COVID-19 virus, IRCC is still striving to meet their skilled immigrants’ admission target set for 2020. Many of those allotted to get a PR Visa through express entry program.

Introduced in 2015, Express entry is a point-based management program. It manages the profiles of the immigrants who have applied for Canada PR visas through Canada’s three major skilled economic immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Through a ranking system – CRS, candidates profiles are ranked in the express entry pool based on their CRS points. These points are awarded according to the candidate’s credentials like age, language proficiency, work experience, education, etc.

Highest ranked profiles are then issued ITAs through frequently held express entry draws. With an ITA, candidates can submit their application for Canada PR visa to the IRCC.

IRCC used thier tie-break rule in the latest express draw, with the time stamp used set on March 19, 2020, at 02:04:06 UTC. This means the express entry candidates who have submitted their profile before the used time stamp and has the CRS score more than 470 points, were issued the ITAs in the latest round of invitation.

Last week, the Federal government of Canada released details of 2020-2022 Immigration Level Plans, with Canada already welcomed 320,000 newcomers in 2018, and 341,000 newcomers in 2019. They are again targeting admission of 341,000 newcomers in 2020.

The majority of newcomers are slated to come through economic immigration class, with 58 percent set to arrive through the Express Entry program, Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), Quebec’s program and other federal programs such as Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP).

For express entry candidates that were not able to meet the minimum CRS score requirement, there are ways to improve their CRS score for Canada PR Visa. This includes improving their score in language proficiency tests, to getting a provincial nomination certificate.

For an express entry candidate to land a provincial nomination certificate, they are given a major boost of 600 CRS points. These many points effectively guarantee that candidate gets an ITA to apply for Canada PR Visa.
