CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY ALL PROGRAM DRAW BY IRCC FOR SECOND TIME IN A ROW AFTER 18-MONTH PAUSE ON 20 JULY 2022

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) conducted the second all-program draw since 6th July after 18-month pause, during which time IRCC only had invited applicants eligible for immigration through either the Canadian Experience Class  (CEC) or Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

Refer to our 1st July news article - The Minister stated that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is on way to control Express Entry draws in early July and coming months. 

In the second draw Canada invited 1,750 Express Entry  applicants  to apply for permanent residence. Express Entry is one of the main ways Canada welcomes immigrants. In 2022, Canada is on path to welcome 55,900 immigrants through Express Entry, then by 2024 the target will rise steeply to 111,500.

Applicants were invited if they had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at minimum 542. There was no program detailed for this draw, meaning applicants from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) had the potential to be invited. 

The CRS requirement for the new draw is 15 points lower than the earlier all-program draw that was conducted in first week of July, when the minimum cut-off score was set at 557 points. Also, Canada issued 250 more invitations in the above draw compared to the previous round of 1,500 invitations.

In an all-program Express Entry draw, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) reflects the CRS from all applicants in the Express Entry pool, irrespective of which program they are eligible for. Previous to the pandemic, most Express Entry draws were not program-specific, orelse applicants eligible for any Express Entry program had the chance to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) if the applicant meet the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

Though IRCC is back to holding all-program draws, additional changes are forthcoming to the Express Entry system for applicants to be selected from the future draw. The improvements named in the recently-passed Bill C-19 are expected to come into force in early 2023.

The bill passed on  Bill C-19 allows the immigration minister to invite Express Entry applicants based on values that funding regional economic needs.  Also the process lets IRCC to hold Express Entry invitation rounds based on applicant’s occupation, language, or educational accomplishment, relatively than to the  applicant’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.

Once implemented, IRCC will be able to hold targeted draws that invite Express Entry applicants to apply based on an economic goal. Applicants might be invited based on their occupation, educational credential, language ability, or other feature that corresponds to labour market needs.

To facilitate the entry of Skilled Workers and Professionals into Canada for the economic and cultural development of Canada, the Human Resources Development Canada (Labor Department of Canada) has produced a list of occupations known as National Occupation Classification (NOC)

All applications for the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) Program have been made through the new  Canada Express Entry system. Applicants must meet the requirements under the expression of interest process before applying for their Canada family visa.

The Canada immigration Federal Skilled Worker Program is points-based, with candidates being assessed on criteria such as age, education, experience, language skills, adaptability, and whether they have an existing job offer in Canada.

To learn more on the points system under the Federal Skilled Worker FSW Program Canada, enclosed the link in our  Canadian Skilled Workers Points System page. To know more about the latest news on federal skilled worker program Canada requirements, visit our immigration news page.

POPULAR IMMIGRATION PROGRAMS:

Express Entry uses a points-based classification, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), to rank applicants profiles. The top-scoring applicants obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and can then apply for permanent residency. After the applicant applies, an IRCC officer reviews the application and makes a conclusion. The case officer then will request for final documents if required, and request for biometrics and may set up an interview.

Once the Case officer approves, the applicant gets a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and would then requested to forward the Principal applicant and family’s passports for visa stamping.  The applicant and family members make their first entry to complete the landing process and officially become a Canadian permanent resident.
