First Express Draw of the Year 2020 invites 3,400 Express Entry Candidates to Apply for Canada PR Visa

The federal government of Canada held its first draw of the New Year – 2020, that sees a total of 3,400 Express Entry candidates invited to apply for Canada PR Visa.

Canada’s main source of skilled immigrants – Express Entry program, is a point-based program that was introduced in 2015 to manage the profiles of the immigrants who have applied for Canada PR Visa through three major skilled immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

All the express profiles are submitted together into the express pool, where they are ranked through the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This system awards points to the candidate’s express profile based on credentials like age, language proficiency, skilled work experience, education etc.

Highest ranked profiles are then issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) through frequently held express draws that allow them to submit their application for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). An ideal application can take around 6 to 8 months to get processed.

In the latest draw held on January 8th, the minimum CRS score required was set at 473 points.

Having a job offer is not mandatory to be eligible for Canada PR Visa through Express entry program, but it can get extra CRS points to improve your chances of getting an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Targets for skilled immigrants admission through express entry program is slated to rise from 85,800 in 2020 to 88,800 in 2021.

Another major immigration program to apply for Canada PR Visa is the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP). PNP’s also have an “enhanced” stream that allows the express entry candidates to apply for provincial nomination. The government of Canada has also increased the target for PNPs from 67,800 in 2020 to 71,300 in 2021.

Most of the streams in PNPs have low CRS requirements that allow the express entry candidates who are not able to meet the demands of express entry programs to apply for Canada PR Visa with a low CRS score. When an express entry candidate gets a provincial nomination certificate, they are awarded 600 CRS points.

IRCC used their tie-break with time and date of December 27, 2019, at 13:35:09 UTC in the latest express draw. This means the candidates who are able to submit their profile in the express pool before the used time-stamp and have a CRS score of 473 or more points, were issued the ITAs in the express draw.
