    • The candidate’s language test isn’t valid.
    • The candidate hasn’t provided a valid ITA number.

About the Saskatchewan PNP draw
·      The Saskatchewan PNP draw was held on July 8, 2021.

·      SINP selected candidates from the international Skilled Worker category.

·      99 individuals selected may have eligibility for SINP’s Express Entry sub-category.

·      196 candidates will get through the migration via the Occupations In-Demand sub-category.

·      The minimum EOI score across categories was 80 points.

·      Candidates required ECA to show that their educational qualifications matched Canadian standards.

·      An additional requirement of experience of working in 62 in-demand occupations was also there for eligibility.

About Occupations In-Demand sub-category
·      It’s a base PNP which means it’s open to even candidates without an Express Entry profile.

·      The candidates selected from this sub-category will be highly skilled workers. They will possess experience in a job that’s in high demand in the province.

·      The candidates are in no need to have a job offer in Saskatchewan.

How to apply for Canada PR via the Occupations In-Demand sub-category?
·      First, create an EOI profile. Use the online application system of SINP for this.

·      SINP assesses candidates based on their education, work experience, connections in the province, age, and language skills. After all, they got to be sure the candidate is able enough to settle in Saskatchewan!

·      On SINP’s Points Assessment Grid for international skilled workers, a score is assigned out of 100 points.

·      The candidates who score the highest will be issued an ITA for a provincial nomination that can lead them to Canada PR.

About the Express Entry sub-category
·      Even this sub-category is an enhanced PNP.

·      Since it’s linked to the federal Express Entry system, the candidates in this sub-category are found from the candidate pool of the Express Entry.

·      The Express Entry pool has candidates for Canada’s economic-class immigration programs namely CEC, FSTP, and FSWP.

·      These Express Entry candidates have to create an EOI profile for Saskatchewan PNP to consider them to be invited for a provincial nomination.

·      Express Entry candidates who get provincially nominated will be granted 600 extra CRS points over their basic CRS score. This can bring them forward in the line of candidates trying for Canada PR in an upcoming federal immigration draw.

About the Express Entry draw
·      The Express Entry draw was held on July 8, 2021.

·      4,500 Express Entry candidates were issued ITAs to apply for Canada PR.

·      The invited candidates were those eligible for the CEC immigration stream.

·      The minimum score requirement was 369.

·      A tie-break rule was implemented as part of an administrative requirement.

·      The rule was applied to candidates with the lowest CRS score, who submitted their profiles before June 10, 2021, at 22:46:37 UTC. Only they were allowed to participate in the draw.

Focus on CEC candidates in Express Entry draws
·      Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Canada is keen on inviting CEC candidates. This is because these candidates are already residing in Canada and are hence easily available as they are unaffected by travel restrictions owing to the pandemic.

·      Even PNP candidates are largely available domestically in Canada. Canada immigration candidates abroad who have demonstrated their ability and intention to support the regional labor market requirements also have been given priority in recent draws.

About Express Entry
·      The Express Entry system manages the applications for visas of immigration candidates for federal high-skilled programs of CEC, FSTP, and FSWP.

·      Eligible candidates with profiles in the Express Entry are ranked by CRS. Scores are assigned by CRS based on factors like education, skilled work experience, skills in official languages, and age.

·      In the regular rounds of invitation, ITAs are issued for Canada PR to eligible candidates who get the highest CRS scores.

·      If applications from candidates are approved by IRCC, they can become permanent residents by arriving in Canada.

Express Entry selects 627 new candidates, offers Canada PR

Canada PR now closer for 627 Express Entry candidates

Canada PR now closer for 627 Express Entry candidates

On July 7, 2021, Canada issued invitations to 627 Express Entry candidates. They were invited to apply for Canada PR.

The chosen candidates were those who had received provincial nominations already from a PNP. For that reason, these candidates required a minimum score of 760 points to qualify.

The cut-off score is high because these candidates have already been granted 600 extra CRS points over their basic score. In the absence of the extra points, the minimum score these candidates would have would be 160.

In this immigration draw, IRCC also implemented a cut-off time to serve the tie-break rule implemented as an administrative requirement. Having a tie-break rule implemented doesn’t always reflect a real tie-break situation. Candidates with the minimum score got invited only after they submitted their Express Entry profile not later than June 14, 2021, at 07:44:05 UTC.

Why are there more PNP candidates in draws held recently?

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic happened, IRCC has been conducting only immigration draws specific to CEC and PNP categories. The reason is that these candidates are possibly already living in Canada. They won’t mostly be affected by public health measures including travel restrictions.

There has been a rise in the number of candidates invited by IRCC in its PNP-specific draws lately. On June 23, 2021, for the first time ever, 1,000 PNP candidates got invited by IRCC. Prior to that, the IRCC had invited 940 Express Entry candidates.

The trend of a high number of candidates could well be Canada’s efforts to reach its ambitious immigration targets for 2021. Canada aims at inviting 401,000 new immigrants to Canada in 2021. Express Entry is the pathway for about a quarter of the targeted number of candidates. So far this year, Canada has issued invitations to 89,342 Express Entry candidates to file applications for Canada PR.

Canada has invited almost 2 times the Express Entry candidates invited at the same time in 2020. The historic immigration draw held on February 13, 2021, helped this to happen. In that draw, IRCC invited all the candidates eligible for the CEC stream. They came to 27,332 people in all. Close to 87% of those invited in the February 13 draw, applied for Canada PR before the 90-day deadline, as IRCC would report.

The score requirements of CEC-only and PNP-only draws are starkly different. CEC draws have lower cut-offs. The reason is that, unlike PNP candidates, CEC candidates aren’t in competition for invitations from other programs.

In the case of PNP draws, the cut-offs are higher due to the extra 600 points awarded to provincially nominated candidates.

About Express Entry

Here are some facts about the Express Entry system:

  • It’s a points-based application management system.
  • It manages applications for the 3 high-skilled federal immigration programs. These include FSTP, FSWP, and CEC.
  • Express Entry profiles could also be accessed and selected by PNPs to invite immigration candidates to submit applications for a provincial nomination.
  • Profiles are ranked and assigned scores by CRS.
  • Eligible candidates for an immigration program managed by Express Entry get a CRS score on the basis of skilled work experience, education, official language skills, age, and other factors.
  • Regular rounds of invitation are held by IRCC. In them, ITAs are issued to apply for Canada PR to candidates who scored the highest.
  • Once the decision from IRCC on an immigration application is affirmative, the candidate just needs land in Canada to complete the immigration formalities.

Alberta invited 148 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination in its Alberta PNP draw held on June 29, 2021. The details of this draw have surfaced and one of the details it shared was that the minimum score required was set to 302 points.

When compared to the previous Alberta PNP draw held by Alberta in June 2021, this draw invited fewer candidates and featured a slightly higher requirement for CRS points.

As of now, Alberta has issued invitations to 2,432 Express Entry candidates, to apply for a provincial nomination. This is the number of candidates from January 2021 since when Alberta PNP resumed invitation rounds.

Alberta can issue 6,250 certificates of nomination in 2021. That’s the quota allowed by the federal government for the year as it does every year.

The working of the Alberta Express Entry Stream

The Alberta Express Entry stream lets Canada’s provincial governments look for suitable candidates in the Express Entry pool of candidates for profiles maintained by the federal government. These candidates are individuals who may have the eligibility for a provincial nomination.

Steps in the functioning of Alberta Express Entry

  1. Create a profile in the Express Entry system, the application management system for 3 federal high-skilled programs namely FSWP, CEC, and FSTP.
  2. Eligible candidates get a score based on the CRS. The points are granted on the basis of factors including education, age, work experience, and language ability in English/French.
  3. With the CRS points earned, candidates can expect to be selected to be invited in any of the regular Express Entry draws conducted by the IRCC. The candidates with the highest CRS scores can apply for Canada PR.
  4. If a candidate is found to be suitable for Alberta’s labor market requirements, that candidate will be given a provincial nomination. This will lead to AINP add 600 CRS points to the candidate’s basic score right away. This paves a way for such candidates, even with low CRS scores, to come forward in the line of Canada PR applicants. These candidates will be able to participate in an upcoming federal draw.

Eligibility for Alberta Express Entry Stream

  • Work experience in an occupation that’s eligible. Figure this out from the list of occupations prepared by AINP that aren’t eligible for the stream.
  • Many candidates who apply under this stream are employed as cooks, transport truck drivers, food service supervisors, and more.
  • The candidate’s Express Entry profile should convey your interest in moving to Alberta.
  • With factors like possessing work experience, or a job offer in Alberta can increase a candidate’s chances of getting nominated. So does Canadian education.
  • If a candidate has a parent, sibling, or child who’s a Canada PR or a citizen in Alberta, that candidate has a definite advantage.

With Alberta’s PNP system, the province finds the support it needs from foreigners to contribute to the province’s economic development and priorities for diversification.

The latest BC PNP draws invites 387 immigration candidates

The latest BC PNP draws invites 387 immigration candidates

British Columbia issued invitations to 387 immigration candidates in 2 BC PNP draws held on July 6, 2021.

From February 2021 BC has been conducting 2 invitation rounds separately under its PNP. One of them is a general draw and another a targeted draw that aims at wholesale and retail trade managers and restaurant & food service managers.

As per the information provided by the province, the second draw is a result of a high number of people registered in the BC PNP SIRS with the 2 occupations mentioned above. By conducting these additional draws, BC intends to strike a balance between the needs in every sector of the province’s labor market.

Candidates who got invitations were from the SI and EEBC streams of the BC PNP. In more specific detail, invitations were issued to the following sub-categories of the streams SI and EEBC:

  • International Graduate
  • Entry Level & Semi-Skilled
  • Skilled Worker

In the first draw, the minimum scores required stood between 75 and 92 points. In all 342 candidates were issued invitations.

The second draw was conducted under the categories SI and EEBC. The targeted candidates had jobs that fell under NOC 0631 or NOC 0621. This draw had 45 invitations sent. The minimum score required across all sub-categories was 108.

What is BC PNP?

The BC PNP attempts to attract skilled foreign workers who are in high demand in the province. These are candidates who desire to become Canada PR.

The BC PNP has 2 immigration streams namely Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC. These are further divided into sub-categories. These streams are managed under BC’s SIRS.

To apply via the SIRS, you must first register an account. After doing that, a score will be assigned to you on the basis of factors like work experience, language skills, and education.

Candidates with the highest score from each sub-category will then be invited to file an application for a provincial nomination to apply for Canada PR. That can be applied when BC conducts one of its regular draws.

If you get an invitation, you can file a complete application within 30 days from the date of the invitation. This can be done via the BC PNP online system.

After you submit a complete application, you will get notified of BC’s decision. This intimation will arrive within an approximate period of 2 to 3 months. If your nomination finds success, you get the eligibility to apply for Canada PR to IRCC under the Provincial Nominee Class.

The validity of the nomination is approximately 6 months starting from the date of confirmation.

Since you got a provincial nomination, you could receive an extra 600 points under the CRS. This increases your basic CRS score, making it possible for you to get an ITA almost for sure in a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.

OINP accepts EOIs from skilled foreign workers to work in Canada

Ontario’s Employer Job Offer In-Demand Skills Stream Now Accepting Expressions of Interest

Ontario’s Employer Job Offer In-Demand Skills Stream Now Accepting Expressions of Interest

Ontario is currently accepting EOIs for a migration program meant to let foreign workers get high-demand jobs and work in Canada in the construction or agricultural industries via the In-Demand Skills stream of OINP.

The EOI system will be open all year and will accept the registration of EOIs at any time for those who are willing to live and work in Canada. On June 28, 2021, the In-demand Skills stream of the immigration category of Employer Job Offer started accepting EOIs. EOIs for the streams International Student and Foreign Worker is already in the processing stage.

Ontario’s EOI system was launched to help it to respond to specific labor market requirements in a better way. It also helped manage high OINP demand as well as prioritize the candidates who proved to be among the best.

Ontario did what many other provinces in Canada did by operating their own EOI systems. This included Quebec. The province of Quebec launched its online platform Arrima in 2018 and issued its first invitations in 2019.

The need for job offers for In-Demand Skills Stream eligibility

Registration in the EOI system of Ontario doesn’t guarantee that a foreign worker will get an ITA for Canada immigration. The EOIs, that have a 12-month validity, are subject to evaluation on the basis of a point system. The points are awarded on the basis of:

  • The field and level of education as well as the place where the candidates completed their studies
  • The candidate’s proficiency in the English/French language
  • The candidate’s intention to settle outside the Greater Toronto Area
  • The candidate’s skill level and work experience, history of earnings, and other factors that have relevance in the Ontario job market and the prospects it has to offer
  • Ontario’s labor market needs

The applicants need the following to qualify for the In-Demand Skills Stream:

  • They must have a job offer for a permanent and full-time job under selected occupations in the construction or agricultural sector that pays the median wage for that occupation in Ontario with the position essential for the business.
  • For individuals already working in such a position, the proposed wage has to be equal to or higher than the current wage being paid.
  • They must have 9 months of cumulative work experience in the last 3 years in one of the occupations deemed eligible. Experience must be in a full-time paid occupation or an equivalent amount in part-time work in Ontario (Seasonal work doesn’t count).
  • They must have the equivalent of Canadian high school education or higher.
  • They must possess a certificate deemed valid or a license at the time of filing the application for any work experience claimed.
  • They must have a minimum level of English/French proficiency which is CLB/NCLC 4 in all areas of competencies.
  • They must be living abroad, or be studying, visiting, or at work in Canada on a permit deemed valid.
  • They must have the intention to settle in Ontario.

Creating a profile and EOI submission

Creating a profile in the e-Filing portal of OINP and submitting an EOI constitute the first step in submitting an application under the In-Demand Skills stream.

Selected candidates from the candidate pool will get an ITA. They could submit that application online via the OINP e-Filing Portal. An application must be submitted within 14 calendar days of getting an ITA. The application fee must be paid too. It will be either $1,500 or $2,000, depending on where the job offer is made.
