The fastest and the most popular Canada immigration pathway, the Canada Express Entry is going to bring back all-program draws on July 6, 2022. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, IRCC had suspended this type of federal immigration draw. It was stopped for some time to deal with the huge backlogs of immigration applications IRCC had to resolve.
What’s an all-program Canada Express Entry draw?
|Canada Express Entry system features 3 types of economy immigration pathways: FSTP, FSWP, and CEC. While the first two looks for foreign immigration candidates, CEC is used to find and convert those eligible temporary visa holders already studying or at work in Canada, to permanent residents.
During COVID-19, IRCC focused on conducting CEC and Canada PNP draws that were applicable for those Canada immigration aspirants who were available in Canada. This helped IRCC to overcome the issue with applicants overseas whose Canada PR applications were approved that they couldn’t arrive in Canada owing to travel restrictions.
With all-program Canada Express Entry draws, IRCC will resume inviting immigration candidates in all 3 categories of economy immigration. This will normalize the Canada immigration process to how it was before the COVID-19 pandemic.
What’s the Canada Express Entry pool?
The Express Entry pool is a big repository of profiles of Canada PR aspirants. If you are one, you will have to apply to IRCC online to create a profile. You will provide all the important information IRCC requires from you by answering the questions in the online form.
Once your scores for each factor of your profile add up to at least 67 points (your CRS score), you will be added to the pool. For this, you will also comply with any other necessary criteria.
