Canada holds the sixth all-program express entry draw in July

Since July, Canada has held its sixth all-program Express Entry draw. As the number of ITAs rises, CRS scores continue to decrease. The sixth Express Entry draw since all-program draws resumed on July 6 saw 3,250 invitations to apply issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on September 14.

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cutoff score was 511 points. Candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program received invites because there was no program indicated for the draw (FSTP). One of the most popular routes for immigration to Canada is Express Entry.

Each draws up until the last one on August 31 saw an increase of 250 candidates earning ITAs. The 500 ITAs increased significantly last week, and today's draw represents a continuation of that pattern. The minimum CRS score has likewise been decreased, losing between eight and nine points with each draw. This draw, though, is distinct because the loss was only five points. For the draw on July 6, the lowest CRS score was 557. 

Beginning in December 2020, the IRCC suspended all Express Entry lotteries for a period of more than 18 months. Only those individuals were asked to apply during this time who qualified for permanent residency through the CEC or the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). 

On schedule, Canada will get roughly 432,000 immigrants. According to Sean Fraser, the minister of immigration, Canada will surpass its current annual record of 405 330 new immigrants by the end of 2022. By the end of June, Canada had already accepted more than 300,000 new citizens as permanent residents. 

Canada has accepted 40,785 immigrants using Express Entry so far this year. If immigration increases at the current rate, Canada may even surpass the objective of approximately 432,000 immigrants set forth in the Immigration Levels Plan for 2022. The IRCC has taken steps to accommodate these numbers, such as making the application process entirely digital and adding an additional 1,250 new employees.

As it seeks to deal with a record low unemployment rate as well as over one million job openings, Canada keeps pushing for increased immigration. Canada cannot support the labor force or economy without immigration because of the rising retirement age and low birth rate during the coming ten years.

Alterations in 2023

In 2023, the IRCC intends to make significant changes to Express Entry in order to better target labor market gaps. The government would now have the power to grant ITAs to those with particular work experience, educational background, or language proficiency. Any candidate from the categories that they feel will be best able to help Canada's economy and labor force could be considered. 

This will have an effect on the usefulness of CRS scores in some situations, and they might lose some of their significance in some upcoming draws. On stage at the technology conference Collision in June, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser provided justification for this idea by saying, "If we can project talents that are needed over the next 20 to 30 years, we can introduce people who can hit the ground running and have a huge economic effect."

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program all use Express Entry as their applicant management system (FSTP). Candidates for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in the Express Entry pool are already qualified for at least one of these schemes.

The Comprehensive Ranking Method (CRS), a points-based system used by Express Entry, ranks candidate profiles. The highest-scoring applicants are given an Invitation to Apply (ITA), after which they can submit a permanent residency application.

An IRCC official evaluates the application after the candidate submits it before making a decision. In addition to requesting biometrics, the officer could schedule an interview or ask for other paperwork. The applicant will then be a permanent resident of Canada and one step closer to obtaining Canadian citizenship if this is successful.
