In a fresh round of invitations issued to eligible Express Entry (EE) candidates on June 24, 2020, candidates with provincial nominations were invited.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 382 candidates in this round. These candidates had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 696 or more.
The minimum CRS score was a result of the basic score (96) and 600 extra points awarded upon their receiving provincial nomination. The CRS score is given based on human capital factors like work experience, education, age, and language proficiency. The higher the score, the better the chance to get nominated.
It is through the Express Entry system that skilled foreign workers arrive to work in Canada. The Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates for the streams of:
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
- Federal Skilled Trades Class
- Federal Skilled Worker Class
A tie-break rule was used in this round of invitation. Every candidate with a minimum CRS score of 696 and had submitted the profile before 23 April 2020, at 10:39:30 UTC, got an ITA in this round.
Since the COVID-19 prevention measures and travel restrictions were imposed in Canada after March 18, 2020, immigration Canada has been conducting Express Entry draws regularly. They aimed at CEC candidates and provincial nominees.
The concerted effort in Canada immigration has kept the country on track in achieving the projected immigration targets. Till now, 46,392 principal applicants received invitations to apply for a permanent residence this year.
An impressive performance on the Express Entry-linked provincial nominee streams has been delivered. Canadian provinces have contacted over 1000 EE candidates to apply for a provincial nomination in the past week itself.
