On June 24, Canada held another round of express entry invitations, inviting candidates with provincial nominations. To date, 46,392 invitations have been issued to Express Entry candidates.
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) sent 392 invitations to candidates who obtained a score of 696 points and above in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
All of these candidates had already received provincial nominations and received an additional 600 points for their overall score. This means that without the provincial nomination, the candidate would have had a CRS of 96 points.
The CRS ranks Express entry profiles based on human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and proficiency in official languages to determine which Express Entry candidates are likely to be successful in the Canadian labor market.
Express Entry is Canada’s primary route to permanent residence for skilled foreign workers and manages the pool of applicants for the Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, and Canadian Experience Class.
A tiebreaker rule was applied during this draw. All applicants with a CRS score of at least 696 points who submitted their profile before April 23, 2020, at 10:39:30 UTC received an ITA in this round.
Since the government announced special measures with travel-restrictions on March 18, Canada has regularly held Express Entry draws targeting provincial nomination candidates and Canadian experience class candidates.
To date, the Government of Canada has organized 15 program-specific express entry draws for these two programs and issued tens of thousands of invitations to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Immigration targets are currently on track to exceed last year’s levels. Despite travel restrictions, more ATIs were issued this year than at the same time in 2019. To date, as of June 24, a total of 46,392 principal applicants have been invited to apply for permanent residence in 2020.
The past few weeks have also seen an impressive amount of activity among the Provincial Entrance Groups linked to Express Entry into Canada. In the past 7 days alone, over a thousand Express Entry candidates have been contacted by Canadian provinces to request a provincial appointment.
These components allow Canadian provinces and territories to select candidates from the federal express entry system who meet their individual needs in the labor market and to propose them for permanent residence in Canada.
To be considered for a provincial appointment under one of the Express Entry Canada components, the first step is to submit an Express Entry profile.
