9th express entry draw 2018

Largest Ever Express Draw invites 4,500 Express Entry Candidates for Canada PR Visa

Largest Ever Express Draw invites 4,500 Express Entry Candidates for Canada PR Visa

Government of Canada held their biggest ever express entry draw, issuing a total 4,500 invitations to the express entry candidates to apply for Canada PR Visa. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score required to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the latest draw held on February 19th was set at 470 points which is 2 points less than the previous express entry draw.

Express entry program, a point-based immigration program, is the main source of skilled immigrants. It 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).

All the registered express profiles are then submitted together into the express pool, where they are ranked through the CRS system. Points are awarded to the express profile according to the CRS system based on the factors like age, language proficiency, work experience, educational qualification etc. Highest ranked profiles in the express pool are then ITAs through regularly held express entry draws. With the ITA, candidates are able to submit their application for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizen Canada (IRCC) within the 60 days of getting the ITA.

To be eligible for express entry program, having a job-offer is not mandatory but it can get the candidate extra CRS points for the same.

Express entry program is the fastest immigration pathway to Canada PR Visa with an ideal application takes around 6 to 8 months to get processed.

IRCC used their tie-break rule in the latest round of invitations with time stamp used – January 13, 2020 at 10:52:52 UTC. This means the express entry candidates with the minimum CRS score of 470 point and have entered the express pool before the used time-stamp, were issued the ITAs in the latest express draw.

Having a largest express draw ever is in-line with the government’s target of reaching 85,800 ITAs this year for new permanent resident admissions.

For the express entry candidates who are not able to meet the minimum CRS points required for Canada PR Visa, there are many options to increase the score, with the most valuable option is a provincial nomination.

Canada’s nine province and two territories have an immigration pathway known as Provincial Nomination Program (PNP). These PNPs has an “enhanced” stream that allows the express entry candidates to apply for provincial nomination. If an express entry candidate is able to get a provincial nomination certificate, they are awarded with 600 CRS points. These many points effectively guarantee the candidate to get an ITA to apply for Canada PR Visa.

Since the start of the year 2020, there are many express entry linked PNPs that have been active. Following is the list of the active PNPs in 2020 that have been issuing invitations to the express entry candidates:
