All Express Entry candidates had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 752 and had previously been nominated by a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).Because Express Entry candidates automatically receive a 600 point boost when they receive a provincial nomination, the required minimum score was quite high.
Without the nomination, the candidates with the lowest scores would have had 152 base points. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) welcomed 932 Express Entry applicants having scores of at least 796 in the previous draw.
Could this be the last PNP draw?
The IRCC is “tentatively” planning to resume all-program draws on July 6, according to Immigration Minister Sean Fraser, who talked with CIC News yesterday at the Collision Conference in Toronto.
Fraser stated in April of last year that Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates will once again get Express Entry invites by early July, although Fraser did not specify a time frame at the time.
The IRCC has only conducted draws for PNP candidates since September 2021.To lessen the Express Entry backlog, which was made worse by the pandemic, IRCC has temporarily halted draws for CEC and FSWP applicants.
Since the announcement, IRCC’s application inventory for the three Express Entry programmers has increased. It has 31,603 as of June 1 as opposed to 40,889 at the end of April.
Even though all-program drawings might resume in two weeks, the PNP draws might not be completely over. The IRCC occasionally conducted PNP-only draws prior to the epidemic. According to IRCC, the PNP is crucial to assisting the economic development of all Canadian regions.
Additionally, Bill C-19, which will enable IRCC to invite applicants whose backgrounds align with the governments economic aims, is close to passing in the Canadian Parliament. For candidates who work in a field where there is a labor shortage, the government might, for instance, arrange occupation-specific draws.
What is Express Entry?
The three most well-liked immigration programmed in Canada are the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class. These three programmers use Express Entry as their application management system. The qualifications for at least one of these programmers have already been satisfied by applicants for the PNP in the Express Entry pool.
Candidate profiles are ranked using Express Entry’s points-based Comprehensive Ranking Method (CRS).The top candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA), which enables them to file a permanent residency application.
After the candidate submits the application, an IRCC representative reviews it before reaching a determination. The officer may also schedule a meeting or seek other papers in addition to biometric data.
If the application is accepted, IRCC will issue a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR). After landing, authorized permanent residents can complete the procedure. If they are outside of Canada, they can find pre-arrival programming to help them with the first steps of settling in Canada.
On January 1, 2015, the Canadian immigration authorities (IRCC) launched Express Entry, a system for managing applications for skilled workers under federal economic programmes.
This covers the Canada Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and a portion of the Provincial Nomination Programs.
As Canada moves closer to its goal of adding 431,645 new permanent residents by 2022, stakeholders anticipate seeing a significant number of invites back in July.With program-specific drawings during the COVID-19 crisis, CRS ratings are still challenging to predict.
Canada shifted to program-specific drawings for applicants to the Canadian Experience Class and Provincial Nominee Program after the coronavirus pandemic hit in March 2020.The result was a marked increase in the number of individual drawings over prior years.
