Sean Fraser proposed a strategy to issue Canada PR for Doctors

Immigration Minister, Sean Fraser has proposed a strategy for temporary residents who wish to become permanent residents in Canada.

The Canadian government has introduced changes in the Express Entry system, to boost its healthcare sector.

Since healthcare staff and Doctors are highly in demand in Canada, the government has given access to Doctors, in order to apply for permanent residence. This assures that skilled professionals from the healthcare sector stay in Canada.

The program under Express Entry, through which international skilled professionals can apply for permanent residence in Canada are:

By 2023, Canada will issue invitations to candidates from specific occupations under the Express Entry immigration program.

Sean Fraser reports, a new pathway to Canada PR for undocumented migrants

The Immigration Minister of Canada, Sean Fraser, is relentlessly working to introduce a pathway for permanent residence that is expected to help the undocumented workers living in the country.

The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, has mentioned the modernization of pilot programs which are already existing in the immigration system of Canada. This new measure will be introduced, in order to build and standardize the undocumented workers’ status which is expected to contribute to the Canadian communities.

The study from 2010 has recorded a number of half a million people who were proposed nationally but has changed from 20,000 to 200,000 amidst the sources.

The New Brunswick skilled worker stream prioritizes the candidates who are willing to migrate to Canada with a permanently secured job offer from an employer.

It’s through the British Columbia PNP draws that the most qualified and skilled immigration candidates and international students do Canada immigration. These are candidates who are capable of meeting the labor market demands of the province.

Such candidates are offered a provincial nomination. Through nomination, they get an advantage of higher scores while applying for a Canada PR visa. They get 600 extra CRS points that will increase their basic score assigned by the Canada Express Entry system. The higher their CRS score, the greater their chances of applying for Canada PR.

10th Dec 2021:

Invitations issued to 1,032 Canada Express Entry candidates to apply for PR

On December 10, 2021, Canada conducted a Canada Express Entry draw for Express Entry candidates already nominated for immigration provincially. In it, 1,032 candidates were issued invitations to apply for a Canada PR visa.

The candidates who were invited already had earned 600 extra CRS points on their basic score. Hence, the cut-off score in the December 10 draw came to 698 points.

A tie-break rule was implemented in the December 10 draw. The timestamp set was September 10, 2021, at 16:43:17 UTC.

Only 38 PNP-only draws have been held in the history of Canada Express Entry. In them, more than 1,000 invitations were issued only twice. Such an instance before the December 10 draw was the June 23 draw with 1002 invitations.

That makes the latest PNP-only Express Entry draw the largest ever in Express Entry history.

Canada has not stopped giving priority to CEC and PNP candidates in its Express Entry draws. However, with the improving situation around the COVID-19 pandemic, more overseas candidates will be finding their way to Canada to complete Canada immigration.
