In the latest Express Entry draw, which was held on August 3, 2022, Canada welcomed 2,000 applicants to submit applications for permanent residency. One of the most well-known immigration pathways in Canada for immigrants is the Express Entry System.
Candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of at least 533 were sent invitations. Candidates from the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) were eligible to be invited because there was no specific program listed for this draw.
This draw’s minimum CRS requirement was nine points lower than the one that took place on July 20. In addition, 250 more applicants were invited in this draw compared to prior ones, when 1,750 applicants were given an invitation to apply (ITA).
Since the commencement of all-program draws on July 6, 5,250 Express Entry applicants have been issued ITAs. Since these draws had been put on hold for more than 18 months, only individuals qualified for permanent residency under the CEC or the Provincial Nominee Program were invited (PNP).
Express Entry: What is it?
The Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program all use Express Entry System as their application 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 System (CRS), a points-based system used by Express Entry, ranks applicants’ 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. The applicant receives a Confirmation of Permanent Residence after the application is approved (COPR). The last step is to conclude the landing procedure and formally become a permanent resident of Canada.
