British Columbia PNP invited 87 immigration candidates in new Tech Pilot draw

British Columbia Provincial Nomination Program invited 87 immigration candidates in the latest Tech Pilot draw

The Province of British Columbia launched its latest Provincial Nominee Program inviting candidates from the Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration categories.

British Columbia Provincial Nomination Program

British Columbia invited 87 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on February 23.

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) Tech Pilot draw issued invitations to candidates under the Express Entry BC and Skills immigration categories.

Invited candidates who were from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories needed a minimum provincial score of 75, which is five points lower than the previous Tech Pilot-specific draws of 2021.

Tech Pilot candidates are invited to apply for a provincial nomination weekly. Invited candidates have 30 calendar days to apply for the nomination.

Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from B.C. will be given an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry draw.

Express Entry draws are typically held twice a month. Since the start of 2021, Canada has been holding draws that target only PNP candidates to apply for permanent residence. This trend originated after Canada went into lockdown in March 2020, and has continued in the new year. It is a way for the federal government to secure permanent residency for immigration candidates who are already in Canada, since PNP candidates likely already have ties to the province where they plan to move. Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is also holding Canadian Experience Class- only draws, since about 90 per cent of these candidates are living and working in Canada.

The latest Express Entry draw, held on February 13, resulted in 27,332 invitations to apply for permanent residence— the largest invitation round ever since the system’s launch in 2015. IRCC is aiming to admit 108,500 Express Entry candidates as permanent residents by the end of this year.

So far in 2021, B.C. has had seven draws through its various PNP categories and streams and invited 1,395 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.

Express Entry: Canada invites 27,332 immigration candidates in historic Saturday draw

Express Entry: Canada Immigration 2021 invitesd 27,332 immigration candidates in historic Saturday draw

Canada Immigration 2021 has surprised us with a historic Express Entry draw inviting tens of thousands of candidates to apply for permanent residence.

Canada Immigration 201

Canada invited 27,332 candidates to apply for permanent residence in its latest Express Entry draw— you read that right.

Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) on February 13. This unprecedented Express Entry invitation round only required candidates to have a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 75— the lowest CRS requirement ever.

Today’s draw was almost six times larger than the largest Express Entry draws ever (5,000 ITAs were issued in four straight draws between November 18 and December 23 last year). Prior to today, the lowest CRS cut-off requirement ever was 199 points in the May 16, 2017 draw which only invited Federal Skilled Trades Program candidates. Express Entry was launched in January 2015.

On Wednesday, Canada also held an Express Entry draw inviting 654 Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates to apply for permanent residence, that makes a total of 27,986 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) issued this week.

IRCC implemented the tie-break rule, meaning candidates who had the minimum score of 75 were only included if they submitted their Express Entry profile before September 12, 2020 at 15:31 UTC.

Today’s draw goes to show IRCC’s commitment to achieving its target of 401,000 new immigrants in 2021. Of those, IRCC is aiming to welcome 108,500 newcomers through Express Entry-managed programs, according to its 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan. Next year that target increases to 110,500, and then to 113,750 in 2023. Canada has given Federal High Skilled programs— which are managed by the Express Entry system— the largest share of new immigrant allocations for the next three years. This means the Express Entry system will continue to be Canada’s main source of new immigrants for the foreseeable future.

Canada’s immigration minister, Marco Mendicino, recently said that IRCC will make efforts to achieve the ambitious immigration targets by transitioning more temporary residents to permanent residents during the pandemic.

The unprecedented draw today seems to indicate that IRCC is aiming to issue as many invitations as it can at the beginning of this year so that it can complete the permanent residence landings of successful Express Entry candidates later in 2021. This would provide IRCC with a greater opportunity to achieve its immigration levels target amid ongoing coronavirus disruptions across the world. At the same time IRCC and Mendicino continue to stress that they will also look to global talent including those currently outside of Canada to support the country’s post-pandemic recovery.

What is Canada’s Express Entry system?

Express Entry is not an immigration program itself, but an application management system for the three programs under the Federal High Skilled category: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.

In order to get into the Express Entry pool of candidates, skilled workers need to make sure they are eligible for one of these programs. If so, they will get a CRS score, which is based on their age, education, work experience, language proficiency in English or French, as well as other factors. Candidates who get a provincial nomination through a PNP, for example, get an additional 600 CRS points, which effectively guarantees that they will receive an ITA in an Express Entry draw.

IRCC holds these draws about every two weeks, inviting Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence. Canada has not yet held an all-program draw in 2021, which includes candidates from the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Instead, CEC and PNP candidates have been invited in separate program-specific draws.

Canada is prioritizing these candidates during the coronavirus pandemic because they are, generally, more likely to already be in the country. PNP candidates have been selected by their respective provinces or territories to meet the demands of their local labour markets, and CEC candidates are oftentimes already established in Canada. IRCC explained in a separate press release today that about 90 per cent of CEC candidates currently live in Canada.

IRCC held these program-specific Express Entry draws for about three months after Canada first went into lockdown in March 2020. By September the department was back to holding all-program draws held every two weeks until the end of the year. It is very likely that IRCC will once again hold all-program draws in 2021 during the pandemic, as they have done before. It noted today’s press release that “IRCC will continue to accept and process Express Entry applications and looks forward to welcoming skilled workers from abroad when travel resumes.

Canada Invited more than 5000 Immigration Candidates combined this week.

All about Canada Immigration and Canada Permanent Resident Visa

Once immigrants meet the criteria set by the respective government, Canada Permanent Resident Visa is offered to them. When the visa holder travels outside Canada, it is mostly applicable. The Permanent Resident Visa is a must for re-entering the country.

Thousands of Overseas Immigrants are attracted by the country’s flexible immigration policies, career opportunities, and democratic values to apply for the Canada Permanent Resident Visa. The programs that allow immigrants to apply for the same thing are:-

  • Provincial program for nominees
  • Program of Skilled Immigrants
  • Skilled Workers Program
  • Program for Sponsorship
  • Provincial Program for nominees
  •  

This program is for Overseas Immigrants from one of the provinces in Canada who have received a nomination. The process includes the steps below:

  • Immigrants should apply to the province they want to live in
  • The request will be reviewed on the basis of province-specific criteria and whether the applicant really wants to live in the territory.
  • The candidate must apply to Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada once the nomination certificate is obtained (IRCC)
  • The application will be reviewed by IRCC officers.
  • It is mandatory to pass a medical examination and police verification check
  • Once approved, the applicant receives a Permanent Resident Visa for Canada

How long does it take to get Canadian Permanent Residency?

Once applied, the process typically requires a minimum of 45 days of processing time, starting on the day when a full application is received by the Canadian Immigration Department. Therefore if your PR card seems to take longer than anticipated, this could be due to two variables: the number of applications or the incomplete application. While there is nothing you can do about the number of applications received by the Department of Canadian Immigration, confirming whether your application is complete may help. So you need to confirm whether a complete application has been submitted by your immigration attorney or agent.

The best way to ensure that a complete application is submitted is by filling it out online. As the mandatory fields are highlighted in red when left empty, this helps minimize the time lost due to incomplete applications. Also as leaving any of them blank might result in an incomplete application, make sure to answer all the questions in the application. If a specific question is not applicable, remember to mark it as ‘NA’, indicating ‘not applicable’. However, make it a point to be very specific and avoid giving vague or ambiguous answers to the questions you answer. In addition, you need to submit a photograph that meets very particular requirements and must provide the enclosures and signatures necessary.

SINP Invites 564 in New Draw

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) invites 564 federal express entry candidate in the Latest draw.

All the interested Immigration candidates were invited to apply for Saskatchewan's Federal Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand streams.

federal express entry

The Latest SINP draw was held on December 1.

The Saskatchewan PNP invited Immigration candidates from the International Skilled Worker category through two subcategories:
Express Entry, and Occupations In-Demand. They sent out a total of 564 invitations to immigration candidates who had work experience in select occupations. A total of 138 were invited through the Express Entry sub-category, and 426 invitations went to Occupations In-Demand candidates.

In order to be invited in this draw, candidates from both sub-categories needed to have submitted Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles with the SINP. Regardless of the category, invited candidates needed an EOI score of at least 74 in order to be invited. This is the provincial requirement, not the Comprehensive Ranking System cutoff. Invited candidates had Educational Credential Assessments.

Invited candidates also needed work experience in one of 86 occupations. To see which occupations were included, go to the government webpage.

The SINP uses the EOI system to select the candidates that have the most potential to succeed in the regional labor market. Candidates need to demonstrate their commitment to building a life in Saskatchewan by showcasing their work experience, education, language ability, age, and connections to the province.

The SINP uses these five factors to assess candidates and give them a score out of 100 on the International Skilled Worker Points Assessment Grid. The highest-scoring candidates are then issued an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan.

Recently, Saskatchewan started giving more EOI points to people who can speak English and French.

Express Entry sub-category

In the latest invitation round, Saskatchewan issued 138 invitations to candidates who had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool.

The federal Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

If candidates in the federal Express Entry pool also filled out an EOI for Saskatchewan, and they scored 74 on the SINP’s Points Assessment Grid they may have been invited in the latest draw.

Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination from the province of Saskatchewan are awarded an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This award effectively guarantees that they will be invited to apply for permanent residence in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw, as most invitation rounds invite candidates with scores above 470.

The same goes for any one of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs that are aligned with Express Entry.

Canada Immigration News

Canada Immigration News: In the Latest Canada Immigration Draw 5,000 Invitation to Apply (ITAs) were sent.

This is the biggest draw ever in Canada immigration draws. Canada has now issued 92,350 ITAs this year, surpassing targets according to the latest Canada Immigration News

Canada Immigration

In The latest Canada Immigration news we have recived information on the latest Express Entry draw which was expected to be the biggest draw ever and it has not disappointed us. Canada has held its largest Express Entry draw ever on November 18, 2020.

A total of 5,000 invitations were issued in this draw, bringing immigration candidates one step closer to Canadian permanent residence.

Candidates needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 472 in order to receive an invitation this round.

Express Entry is Canada’s immigration application management system for three federal economic-class programs: Federal Skilled Worker ProgramFederal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates in these programs, as well as some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are given a score based on the CRS. Points are awarded depending on a candidates human capital factors such as age, education, work experience, and language ability in English or French.

The highest scoring candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in an Express Entry invitation round.

In case of a tie between candidates, IRCC applies the tie-breaking rule. So, for this draw, candidates who had a CRS score of 472 or more, needed to have submitted their Express Entry profile before October 27 at 06:18:11 UTC in order to receive an invitation.

This year, the CRS requirement has typically hovered above 470 for all program draws. The Federal Skilled Trades Program-only draw on August 6 invited trades workers with a CRS of 415, and previous Canadian Experience Class-only draws dipped into the 440s. PNP-only draws have higher requirements because Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are automatically awarded an additional 600 CRS points. PNPs offer alternative pathways to permanent residence for Express Entry candidates who have a lower CRS score.

The new draw brings the total number of ITAs issued in 2020 to 92,350. This year is shaping up to be a new record-breaking year for Express Entry, as the number of ITAs issued to date is the highest it has ever been.

The large number of ITAs is in line with Canada’s commitment to welcome over 400,000 new immigrants in 2021, most of them coming through the Express Entry system.

Canadian Immigration has a new immigration target and there is to welcome over 400,000 immigrants per year

Canada is aiming to welcome 401,000 immigrants in 2021, another 411,000 in 2022, and 421,000 in 2023 accordingly.

Canadian Immigration

Canada announced its 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan. Canada will target the highest level of immigration in its history.

Over the coming three years, Canadian immigration will aim to welcome the following level of new permanent residents:

-> 2021: 401,000 immigrants
-> 2022: 411,000 immigrants
-> 2023: 421,000 immigrants

The only time Canada welcomed over 400,000 immigrants in a year was in 1913 when it admitted 401,000 newcomers. It has never come close to this figure again.

The 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan aims to welcome about 60 percent of all immigrants under economic class programs, including through Express Entry and the Provincial Nominee Program.

The Immigration Levels Plan is the most important immigration announcement made by the Government of Canada each year. It outlines the number of new permanent residents Canada aims to welcome over the coming years, and what categories Canada aims to admit them under. Canada welcomes immigrants under the following categories: economic; family; refugee; and humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

Immigration plan 2021-2023 summary

Earlier this year, on March 12, the federal government announced Canada would aim to welcome over one million new permanent residents between 2020 and 2022. Days later, Canada had to shut its borders due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, Canada will likely fall well short of the 341,000 immigration target it set for this year, however it has been holding Express Entry draws throughout the pandemic that will result in Canada breaking its Express Entry record this year. In addition, the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws remain ongoing.

To compensate for the fall of immigration this year, Canada has set the most ambitious immigration levels plan in its history.

Why Canada is maintaining high immigration?

Canada is maintaining high levels of immigration to offset the negative economic and fiscal impacts of its aging population and low birth rate.

Canada has one of the world’s oldest populations, with nearly 18 percent of its population being age 65 and over. It also has one of the world’s lowest birth rates at 1.47 births per woman. As such, Canada will face challenges growing its economy and supporting government spending in the future. These challenges can be alleviated by welcoming more immigrants to support labor force and economic growth.

Since its founding in 1867, Canada has welcomed at least 300,000 immigrants in a year just five times. It is currently welcoming 0.9 percent of its population in immigrants, which is three times higher than the per capita newcomer intake in the United States.

At the same time, Canada has had a higher per capita intake in the past, welcoming 1 percent or more of its population in newcomers, something it regularly achieved in the decades prior to the First World War.

Canada’s immigration record was achieved in 1913 when it welcomed 401,000 immigrants which were over 5 percent of its population in newcomers. Today, a 5 percent newcomer intake would result in 2 million new immigrants arriving in Canada.

Canadian Province of Quebec extends immigration targets into 2021. Check out Economic Immigration Plans in 2021

Quebec immigration targets for 2021 are more of the same as those set last year.

Quebec could welcome between 44,500 and 47,500 immigrants in 2021.

The immigration targets for 2021 is considered under the Plan d’immigration du Québec 2021, which was released on October 29. The same report coincides with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada‘s (IRCC) announcement of its multi-year plan, which will be released this week and will work as a guide for Canada’s  economic immigration plan of 2021 to 2023.

In the year 2021, It is expected that majority of new admissions to Quebec, almost 62 % are expected to come through the same province’s economic immigration programs.

The all-new Quebec immigration levels represent an increase over its 2020 targets when Quebec’s goal was to welcome between 43,000 and 44,500 immigrants. It may be because Covid-19 Pandemic has affected their 2020 immigration plans.

Check out if you’re eligible for Canadian immigration

According to an estimate in the plan released today, Quebec will admit a maximum of 30,500 immigrants this year, instead of the projected maximum of 44,500. The province says travel restrictions and the closure of federal offices and processing centers around the world make it difficult to meet immigration targets for 2020.

However, the province’s immigration ministry said its targets for 2021 include a rebalancing plan “with the admission of an additional 7,000 people, representing the deferment of some of the admissions that were not fulfilled in 2020 due to the health crisis.”

As a result of the health crisis, the province estimates the number of unrealized admissions in 2020 to be between 13,000 and 18,000 but plans to make up the shortfall over the next two years.

Quebec’s Admissions targets for 2021

For 2021, Quebec has set a range of between 27,500 and 29,300 new admissions for its economic immigration programs, including a maximum of 24,200 skilled workers.

The province has also set a maximum of 4,300 admissions for its business immigration programs, which include Quebec’s Entrepreneur Program and the Self-Employed Worker Program.

In addition, a maximum of 800 admissions is set for “other economic categories” such as live-in caregivers and others.

Another 10,200 new permanent residents are expected to arrive through family sponsorship, refugee, and other immigration programs.

2021 Quebec Selection Certificate targets

Under the provisions of the Canada-Quebec Accord, Quebec has the power to select all economic class immigrants and certain refugees to the province.

Those selected are awarded a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de sélection du Québec, or CSQ) and can then apply to Canada’s federal government for a permanent residence visa.

Quebec’s plan calls for 26,500 to 31,200 selection certificates to be issued in 2021, slightly more than its 2020 plan, which called for a range of 20,100 to 24,700.

The majority — up to 22,400 — would go to skilled worker candidates.

The selection certificate targets are as follows:

  • Skilled workers: between 19,400 and 22,400;
  • Business immigrants: between 1,500 and 2,300;
  • Other economic immigrants: between 400 and 600;
  • Refugees selected abroad: between 4,400 and 4,700;
  • Other immigrants: between 800 and 1,200.

The targets set for 2021 include applications in process or waiting to be processed in Quebec and at the federal level. They also take into consideration the time it takes for candidates to complete all the immigration procedures.
