Canada’s Express Entry

Express Entry: Only 440 CRS needed 3,515 ITAs issued. Canada's Express Entry cut-off scores continue to plummet, as a CRS of only 440 was needed to secure an ITA in today's draw.

Canada Express Entry Immigration Service

Recent Express Entry round on 28th may, issued 3,515 invitations to Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of 440 or higher.

Express Entry draw cut-offs continue to plummet as Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invites a larger number of CEC-specific candidates. Today’s draw was the largest CEC-specific Express Entry draw since May 1st, and the second-largest since Canada introduced special coronavirus measures in the middle of March.

The May 28 draw continued a trend that has seen the cut-off CRS score decrease in each of the last six CEC draws held since the last all-program draw on March 4, 2020. This trend may be explained in part by the relatively regular interval and frequency between draws that IRCC has maintained during the last two months.

The time between draws is an important factor that can have an effect on the CRS cut-off score. Shorter intervals between draws mean fewer candidates have time to enter a profile in the Express Entry pool.

The cut-off score of 440 is a decrease of 7 points from the previous CEC draw on May 15, which had a minimum score of 447 and was previously the lowest points cut-off for the program since January 2019.

Today’s CEC draw was the second invitation round in 24 hours to issue Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence.

The draw held on May 27 issued 385 invitations to Express Entry candidates nominated through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The minimum CRS score for these candidates was 757.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates in the Express Entry pool are awarded an additional 600 points on top of their original human capital score. This is why the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement is usually much higher for draws such as the one that took place yesterday.

Canada’s Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs —

Candidates are ranked based on a score awarded under Express Entry’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) that considers factors such as

  • Age,
  • Education,
  • Skilled work experience and
  • Language Ability in English or French.

A set number of the highest-ranked candidates receive an ITA through regular draws from the pool and IRCC typically aims to process applications for permanent residence within six months.

IRCC applied its tie-break rule in this draw and the date and time used was March 7, 2020 at 10:36: 59 UTC. This means that all CEC candidates with a CRS score of at least 440 who submitted their profile before this date and time, received an ITA in this invitation round.

Today’s draw brings the total ITAs issued in 2020 to 42,100.

Despite the fact that Canada’s immigration policies and procedures have undergone major changes since March 18 due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the Express Entry system has remained operational and candidates can still submit a profile.

IRCC has held a total of twelve Canadian Experience Class and Provincial Nominee Program draws over the past two months.

Both categories of applicants are more likely to already be in Canada than those arriving through other Express entry-linked programs, which means they will not be impacted by the current travel restrictions.

Saskatchewan PNP draw

Saskatchewan PNP draw invites 252 candidates

Saskatchewan announces first PNP draw results since March 26, invites immigration candidates with work experience in 44 in-demand occupations
Saskatchewan PNP draw

Saskatchewan’s latest draw on May 28 issued invitations for 252 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) also known as Saskatchewan PNP Draw  invited candidates from the International Skilled Worker category through two subcategories: Express Entry, and Occupations In-Demand.

This is the first Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw out of Saskatchewan since Canada closed its borders to non-essential travel. The previous draw on March 26 was only for Occupations In-Demand candidates.

Vist us or call us to find out if you are eligible for any canadian immigration program

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.

The Saskatchewan PNP Draw uses the EOI system to select the candidates that have the most potential to thrive in the prairie province. 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 Saskatchewan PNP Draw 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.

The minimum score required in the May 28 draws was 78 for both sub-categories.

Express Entry sub-category

In the latest invitation round, Saskatchewan issued 127 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 ProgramFederal 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 78 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 puts them in a good position to be invited to apply for permanent residence in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.

Occupations In-Demand sub-category

The Occupations In-Demand sub-category is open to immigration candidates who do not have a federal Express Entry profile.

There were 125 Occupations In-Demand candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination, and like the Express Entry sub-category, candidates needed a provincial score of 78 in order to be chosen.

Canadian International Students

Canada is removing its barriers for International Students working in Essentials Services

Canadian International Students

Canada is making it easier for Canada international students to join the fight against coronavirus

Canada International students in Canada will now be allowed to work full time if they are employed in an essential service.

The government recognizes that international students who are already in Canada have the ability to help meet the challenges presented by COVID-19. As a result, Canada has temporarily removed the regulation that limits international students from working more than 20 hours per week while classes are in session.

“Immigrants, temporary foreign workers and international students are making important contributions as frontline workers in health care and other essential service sectors,” Marco Mendicino, Canada’s immigration minister said in a media release. “We know and value their efforts and sacrifices to keep Canadians healthy and ensure the delivery of critical goods and services.”

The change applies to study-permit holders who are working in industries that are considered to be critical in ensuring the health, safety, security, or economic well-being of Canadians and the government.

International students working in the following 10 sectors are included in Canada’s definition of critical infrastructure:

  • Energy and utilities
  • Information and Communication Technologies
  • Finance
  • Health
  • Food
  • Water
  • Transportation
  • Safety
  • Government

Employers and international students may consult the government’s guide to determine if the change applies to their line of work.

This new measure will be in effect until August 31, 2020.

Canada Work Permit – Foreign Workers are welcomed despite Coronavirus

Canada Work Permit

Canada has pulled back on some coronavirus measures to allow entry to work permit holder

Canada Work permit holders are now allowed to enter Canada even if they were approved after the government issued a travel ban to stop the spread of coronavirus.

In an earlier version of the ban, It appeared a number of people would not be allowed to travel to Canada if their permits were approved after March 18.

Now work permit holders, even those outside the U.S., are allowed to fly to Canada as long as they are not presenting coronavirus symptoms. Travellers who do present symptoms may still be able to enter by land, but must self isolate.

Get help with Canada work permits

It is now mandatory for all travellers to self-isolate for 14 days after entering Canada from abroad. The only exception to this rule is for truck drivers who regularly cross the Canada-U.S. border to maintain the flow of goods.

Canada has also implemented some temporary modifications to the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process for agriculture and food-processing employers. The required two-week recruitment period will be waived for the next six months. They will also increase the maximum allowable employment duration for workers in the Temporary Foreign Worker Program low-wage stream from one to two years.

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will not close or refuse any application in progress due to a lack of documentation. They will also not decline applicants who are unable to complete certain steps in the process such as giving biometrics or completing a medical exam.

If you are intrested to Extend temporary resident status once in Canada

Temporary residents in Canada can apply to extend their status online and are allowed to remain in the country until a decision is made on their new application.

If their initial temporary residence status expires while they are waiting for that decision they are still allowed to stay in Canada but will be on “implied status.”

Travelling to a port of entry to apply directly to a border services officer is not considered “essential travel,” and applicants will be denied service.

Canada PR Process 2020

Canada Welcome you for Canada PR Process 2020

Canada PR Process 2020

Canada PR Process 2020 Plans to welcome over one million new immigrants between 2020-2022. Marco Mendicino ( “Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship” )  laid out a vision for Canada’s immigration system in first major speech since his November 2019 appointment as minister

He was Appointed as a minister of this section in November 2019 and this  speech is considered to be his first major policy since his November 2019 appointment as Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. Mendicino was appointed after the Liberal Party of Canada was re-elected to a second mandate in October and he is currently pursuing an immigration plan laid out in his mandate letter.

Canada PR Process 2020 may be little easy for Canada PR aspirants as Canada looks desperate to grow their Population count in less time. We have already seen growth in number of Canada PR issued in recent years. 

“Vision” speeches are a long-standing tradition among Canada’s immigration ministers. They outline the government’s aspirational goals and what policies and programs the government will pursue to achieve the goals.

Mendicino’s speech was one of the example of such Speech.

Mendicino opened his speech by stating that Canada’s future depends on immigration. As such, it is critical to have a dialogue on how many people Canada needs to secure its economic prosperity. Now we can point out  from his speech that there will be even more Canada PR invitations issuing between 2020-2022 than we have seen in past. Those who want a Canada PR, they should Apply for Canada PR Process 2020 as soon as possible.

This dialogue, Mendicino said, is necessary due to Canada’s demographic realities. As an aging country with a low birth rate, Canadians are living longer and not having enough children to maintain the size of its population.

This places greater pressure on Canada’s economy and fiscal standing. This is due to fewer workers being relied upon to fund rising government expenses, such as health care, which will become more expensive to deliver as the share of elderly Canadians continues to rise.

 

Canada PR Process 2020

Mendicino said a major part of the solution is to welcome immigrants. Today, some 80 per cent of Canada’s population growth will come from immigration, and estimates suggest this will reach 100 per cent by the 2030s.

This is why Canada will welcome over one million immigrants over the next three years, said Mendicino, as he noted that he will formally table Canada’s 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan in March.

Express Entry will remain the flagship program for welcoming immigrants to Canada and has been successful since launching in January 2015. Mendicino noted that 95 per cent of Express Entry arrivals have jobs and some 80 per cent are working in their fields.

In addition, programs such as the Global Talent Stream and Atlantic Immigration Pilot have been key to supporting Canada’s economy.

Nonetheless, there remains a need to promote the benefits of economic immigration to smaller communities across the country. This explains why the federal government launched the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot in 2019.

The Municipal Nominee Program (MNP) is another initiative that the federal government will pursue to help economic growth across Canada. The Minister stated that the government is in pre-consultations on what the program will look like and welcomes feedback from stakeholders on how to shape the MNP.

Minister Mendicino urged attendees to support a national dialogue that immigration is a net positive for Canada. He observed that Canada’s immigration system has been lauded by the OECD as the international standard on how to effectively manage an immigration system.

He concluded by stating that Canada is built on the strength of immigration.

Welcoming immigrants will help to grow the labour market, support businesses, and ensure that “Canada remains the best country in the world.”

Post-Graduation Work Permit

Post-Graduation Work Permit applicants are now allowed to work even after travelling outside of Canada

International student graduates will no longer need to remain in Canada while their Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) is in process.

As of February 21, graduates who are eligible to work full time without a work permit will be able to maintain their ability to work legally in Canada even if they leave and re-enter the country.

International students must apply for their PGWP before their study permit expires in order to be allowed to work full time.

It can take upwards of 90 days for a PGWP decision to go through.

In order to work in Canada without a work permit, PGWP applicants must satisfy the following requirements:

  • They held a valid study permit at the time of the PGWP application.
  • They have completed their study program and obtained a degree, diploma or certificate.
  • They were full-time students enrolled at a designated learning institution in a post-secondary, vocational or professional training program of at least six months in duration.
  • They did not work more than 20 hours per week during their study program.

If the federal government refuses the application for a work permit, the graduate must then stop working as soon as he or she is informed by the immigration ministry.

PGWP and Canadian permanent residence

After completing a study program, certain international students may be eligible to stay and work in Canada with a PGWP.

If their application for a work permit is approved, international student graduates can work in Canada for a period of eight months to three years.

If the ultimate goal is to settle in Canada, work experience gained through a PGWP can greatly facilitate a graduate’s path to Canadian permanent residence through the Express Entry system.

Express Entry is an application management system for Canada’s three main economic class immigration programs:

Immigration candidates who are eligible for an Express Entry-managed program are ranked according to factors deemed to determine their success in the Canadian labour force. A candidate’s

  1. Age,
  2. Official language proficiency,
  3. Education,
  4. and work experience all go towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.

Those with high CRS scores are more likely to be selected for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence through regular Express Entry draws.

Canadian work experience is highly valuable towards a candidate’s overall CRS score.
