Invitations for 545 Express Entry immigration candidates were issued by Canada to apply for permanent residence, under the Canada Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) on May 11th, 2022.

The candidates who have received a nomination previously from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and had a Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) of atleast 753.

Also, in the invitation round conducted earlier, the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 829 PNP candidates with a minimum score of 772

The tie-breaking rule was fixed for December 15, 2021 at 20:32:57 UTC.

FSWP and CEC draws to continue in July

An important announcement was made on April 22 that the Express Entry invitations for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) immigration candidates will continue by early July. Meanwhile, the minister stated that he expects more new Express Entry applications to be processed within a six-month standard of service.

This has been significant news since the Express Entry draws for FSWP applicants were paused in December 2020 and the CEC applicants since September 2021.

The temporary interruption was introduced and implemented the IRCC to process highly skilled applications on the waiting list and reduce the Express Entry backlog, which was aggravated by the pandemic.

An effect of decreasing the flow of skilled foreign immigrants to the Canadian labor market was made by this temporary policy when there were almost one million job vacancies and historically low unemployment rates.

Canadian Immigration has gained an extensive value currently than ever before, and the Express Entry is composed to become a primary vehicle for Canada to grab the attention of International talent and grow its economy.

According to the IRCC provided figures during the April 22 media briefing, the Express Entry backlog has decreased by more than half since September 2021, to 48,000 by March 2022.

Additionally, the number of permanent resident decisions made in the first half of 2022 has doubled compared to the same period in 2021. The IRCC made 156,000 permanent residents between January 1 and March 31, 2022.

IRCC looks forward to inviting 110,000 immigrants through Express Entry by 2024.
