9th express entry draw 2018

Canada Issued Another 606 Invitations to Express Entry Candidates For Canada PR Visa

Canada issued another 606 invitations to express entry candidates for Canada PR Visa

IRCC invites a total 606 Express entry candidates with a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa in the latest express entry draw

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the latest round of invitations for Express Entry candidates inviting a total of 606 immigrants for Canada permanent resident visa. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points decreased by 22 points from the last Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw held on March 18th.

IRCC continues to hold regular express draws removing the uncertainty regarding the negative impact of the coronavirus special measures for the Canadian immigration programs.  In fact, IRCC tweeted on April 1, stating that Express entry round of invitations are still being held, and confirmed that they are accepting and processing the application for Canada PR Visa.

Since March 18, IRCC held two other rounds of invitations exclusively targeting Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and express entry candidate’s with a provincial nomination.

Introduced in 2015, the Express Entry program is the main source of skilled immigrants for Canada. The point-based program manages the profiles of the immigrants who have applied for Canada PR Visa through Canada’s three major skilled economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). With the help of the ranking system – Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), profiles are ranked in the express entry pool. The highest-ranked profiles are then issued invitations to apply for Canada PR Visa.

This draw is the 8th draw of the year 2020 and brings the total number of invitations for this year to 23,206.

IRCC used their tie-break rule with the time stamp used set on December 18, 2020, at 11:29:51 UTC. This means the candidates who have entered their profile in the express pool before the used time stamp, and with the CRS score of minimum 698 points, were issued ITAs in the latest round of invitations.

Express Entry candidates can increase their CRS points through various factors, getting a provincial nomination being one of those reasons.

For an express entry candidate to get a provincial nomination certificate, they are awarded 600 CRS points, effectively making sure that the candidate gets an ITA to apply for permanent residence.

Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams have already held a total of more than 30 draws since the start of the year 2020. Following are the PNPs that has issued invitations to the express entry candidates since the all-program draw held on March 4:

Under its 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan, the Government of Canada is targeting the admission of 341,000 immigrants in 2020, 351,000 in 2021, and another 361,000 in 2022. PNP admissions are set to increase by 20 percent by 2022.
