What makes you think about Canada? Great world rankings? Job opportunities and career prospects? The most welcoming country for immigrants? Whatever the reason may be, Canada is still warmly welcoming skilled and qualified immigrants and pathways like Express Entry are wide open for you.
The candidates who got invited in the draw already had bagged a provincial nomination in an earlier PNP draw. That helped them earn 600 extra CRS points. Their new improved CRS points led to the minimum CRS score for the draw to be fixed at 742 points. Only candidates with the minimum score had the eligibility to get invitations.
In 2021 IRCC has set a record of inviting the highest number of Express Entry candidates than any year that has passed. In 2020 107,350 ITAs were issued. In 2021, IRCC has already issued 108,000 invitations so far.
About Express Entry
Express Entry is a points-based application management system used by the federal government to manage applications for immigration. These applications are filed for 3 federal high-skilled immigration programs namely CEC, FSTP, and FSWP.
The applicants to Express Entry have their profiles added to a candidate pool that's accessible to both federal and provincial governments. Every candidate profile is ranked by CRS with scores assigned. Factors like age, education, work experience, and skills in Canada’s official language are considered to decide the scores.
When provincial governments choose and nominate Express Entry candidates through PNP draws, they automatically add 600 extra points to their original CRS scores. This way, the candidates get a higher score that will increase their chances to get an ITA to the near surety in a forthcoming federal immigration draw.
For a provincial nomination, these candidates need to create an EOI profile with the provincial PNP involved. The EOI profiles are given scores on the province’s unique points grid.
The highest-scoring Express Entry candidates are invited by IRCC to apply for Canada PR when they take part in regular invitation rounds. Those who are invited can officially apply for Canada immigration.
