About The Express Entry Draws

On April 27, 2022,  almost a week after IRCC announced the resume of Federal High Skilled Stream Draws, they held the ninth PNP-only Express Entry draw of the year, inviting 829 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence. Invitations to Apply (ITAs) were sent to candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores equal to or greater than 772. Only candidates with a nomination for a Provincial Nominee Program were invited in this draw. 

How Does the Express entry system work?

The Express Entry system is an electronic system used to manage the applications of skilled workers who wish to become permanent residents of Canada. For example, if you are interested in becoming a Canadian permanent resident, you must create and submit your online candidate profile for the federal government’s review. The federal government will then determine if you are eligible for a program under EE. If so, you would be accepted into the EE pool and ranked under CRS. 

What is the comprehensive ranking system?

The CRS is a point-based system designed to assess and rank eligible candidates in the EE pool. Canada calculates CRS scores through different profile factors such as a candidate’s age, education background, work experience, language ability, among others. On average, EE draws are held every two weeks by the federal government.

I received an ITA - What should I do now?

You now have 60 days to submit all your documents to IRCC for your Permanent Residency application. We can help you with Stage 2 of the application. We offer flexible service options including:

  • Consultations Useful for those looking for answers to specific questions about their profile and applications
  • Review Services – Useful and budget option for those looking for professional oversight while applying on their own.
  • Full Representation – Useful for those who would like an RCIC to take charge of the process and represent them in the application.
Record number of immigrants expected in 2022

Canada is planning to welcome around 83,500 immigrants both through Express Entry-aligned and PNP categories in 2022. Meanwhile, in Canada’s 2022-2024 immigration plan announced last February 14th, 2022, the federal government aims to welcome over 432, 000 immigrants as a strategy to cover the gap in their economy and increase their labour market post-COVID-19.
