How does Canada Express Entry work?
The Express Entry program is one of the fastest Canada immigration pathways. It is also one of the most popular pathways to get a Canada PR Visa. It was introduced in 2015 as an online application management system that manages three economic immigration programs i.e., the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Express Entry program manages profiles under the programs mentioned above and then ranks them based on their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The highest-ranked profiles are given ITAs (Invitation to Apply) to apply for a PR visa with IRCC.
All immigrants who want to move to Canada as permanent residents should keep an eye on the latest Express Entry draws to obtain a general sense of when the next draw will be.
Earlier, the Express Entry all-program draws were paused for over one and half years starting in December 2020 due to a backlog in applications caused by the COVID-19-related travel restrictions. Only CEC or Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates were issued invitations to apply during the pause. In September 2021, IRCC also suspended draws for the CEC.
Why you should always look for the latest Express Entry Draw trends?
Express Entry draws give you a rough idea of past, present, and upcoming government policies related to immigration. Individuals planning to immigrate to Canada may use these facts and figures to analyze their profile and the demands for the same at the federal and provincial levels. CRS (Comprehensive ranking system) score is calculated based on different parameters such as age, experience, education, and so on. The CRS score is based on 1200 points system wherein PNP shares 600 points separately through its different PNP draws such as the Saskatchewan PNP draw, Alberta PNP draw, Ontario PNP draws, and so on. Hence, the CRS cut-off is mostly announced on the basis of federal CRS scores which means out of a total of 600 points only.
