Canada set to accept more Immigrants
NEWSMAN – Canadian Government in its latest draw held in November has invited 4,500 fresh express entry candidates to apply for permanent residency.
Express Entry is the application system that manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three main economic immigration classes — the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
A set number of the highest-ranked candidates are invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws (usually bi-weekly) from the pool. These invitation rounds typically involve candidates from all three Express Entry-managed categories.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has been holding draws of 4,200 every two weeks since September 2. The immigration department has not had a draw of this size since February.
The highest scoring candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in an Express Entry invitation round.
Candidates are ranked based on a score awarded under the CRS, which considers factors such as age, education, skilled work experience, and proficiency in English or French.
This round of draw is the third instance where Canada issued 4,500 invitations at a time, the largest number of invitations issued in a single draw, Voice of Canadian Immigration reported.
The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CSR) score for this draw was 478, seven points higher than 471 points, recorded in the last draw held in October.
