Canada invites 4750 candidates in the most recent express entry draw

Canada's most recent all-program Express Entry draw was held on November 23. Since the start of all-program draws on July 6, this is the ninth draw. Invitations were sent to 4,750 applicants with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 491, according to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program all sought qualified applicants (FSTP). All of these initiatives work with the Express Entry framework.

Express Entry drawings for all programs were suspended for more than 18 months in December 2020. Due to a backlog of applications brought on by COVID-19-related travel restrictions, the draws were put on hold. Only those people from the CEC or Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) received invitations to apply at this time (ITAs).

However, the IRCC also stopped doing lotteries for the CEC in September 2021. Similar to the two draws that took place on November 9 and October 26, this one has the same number of ITAs. With each round, the CRS score continues to decline by two or three points.

NOC alterations

On November 16, IRCC unveiled NOC 2021, an update to NOC 2016, the National Occupation Classification (NOC) system that is used to identify the occupation and level of expertise of an Express Entry candidate. Based on the training, education, experience, and responsibility (TEER) required, the new method classifies vocations. The NOC 2016 skill levels 0-E have been amended by the new TEER system, and five new TEERS have been developed as a result.

Skill Type 0 TEER 0

Skill Level A TEER 1

Skill Level B TEER 2

Skill Level B TEER 3

Skill Level C TEER 4

Skill Level D TEER 5

16 new occupations have been eligible for Express Entry as a result of the implementation of the TEER system, while three occupations have lost their eligibility. The prohibited professions might nevertheless be acceptable under different legal routes for economic immigration, like provincial nominee schemes. Target industries for the new jobs include tech, healthcare, and truck driving, all of which are already suffering from a lack of trained labor in Canada.

The 16 new eligible professions are listed below.

- personnel managers

- Dental assistants and assistants in the dental laboratory

- Orderlies, patient service representatives, and nurse assistants

- Pharmacy assistants and technical pharmacy assistants

- Teacher helpers in elementary and secondary schools

- Bailiffs and sheriffs

- officers in the correctional service

- officers responsible for enforcing regulations and bylaws

- Electrologists, estheticians, and related professions

- Installers and service providers for both homes and businesses

- both fumigators and pest controllers

- Other service providers and mechanics

- drivers of transport trucks

- Drivers of buses, subway cars, and other forms of public transportation

- operators of heavy machinery

- aircraft assemblers and inspectors of aircraft assembling

In 2023, Express Entry is likely to change. Candidates can anticipate that Express Entry drawings will continue into late 2022 and early 2023 and that CRS scores will be the primary determining factor in issuing ITAs. But starting in 2023, the IRCC will have the ability to conduct targeted drawings thanks to the newly passed Bill C-19. Depending on Canada's most immediate economic need, the requirements for receiving an ITA may change between draws.

An individual might be granted an ITA, for instance, depending on their profession, level of education, or language proficiency.  According to Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, these focused draws would better position new permanent residents on a path to success while also ensuring that critical workforce shortfalls in Canada are met.

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 the Invitation to Apply (ITA), after which they can submit a permanent residency application.

An IRCC officer examines the application after the candidate submits it and determines whether or not to approve the candidate. The applicant will then be a permanent resident of Canada and one step closer to obtaining Canadian citizenship if this is successful.
