Canada Just Had its First Express Entry after an 18-month Pause
Canada resumes Express Entry draws by inviting 1,500 candidates with the CRS score of 557.
Canada resumes Express Entry draws by inviting candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FWSP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) since their abrupt pauses that caused a major backlog in the processing time.
With 1,500 candidates invited by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) has seen a limit score of 557.
It has recently been announced that Canadian Express Entry draws have been resumed, since the backlog initially began in December 2020. Canadian officials have focused on inviting Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) candidates as well as the return of all-program draws.
The significance of this program shows as it is the main way for skilled immigrants to seek visa approval into Canada. Additionally, this draw directly impacts candidates of the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), which is catered to the majority of Canada’s international students and foreign workers when seeking permanent residence.
As backlog numbers continue to rise, efforts are being made to deliver quality services that are soon to be efficient and helpful. Furthermore, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRRC) plans to process the increase of Express Entry applications, within a 6-month period.
