A brief on the recent changes made in Express Entry

Won’t it be a good thing to be refreshed some of the changes made to the Express Entry system in the recent past? Here we bring you a summary of those changes:

  • On November 16, 2022, IRCC will switch from the current NOC system to the new TEER system of occupational identification to determine eligibility.
  • In the near future, IRCC will conduct occupation-based Express Entry draws as per the amendments proposed under Bill C-19. After this, the Minister of IRCC will get more say in the decision taken in choosing Canada immigration candidates.
  • IRCC has raised the requirement for POF (Proof of Funds) for Express Entry candidates for 2022.
  • Canada has decided to extend the current status for all foreign applicants who are filing an application for a work permit, study permit, or temporary resident visa from outside Canada. They have to submit their applications online by March 31, 2023.
  • The latest Immigration levels plan for the period 2022-24 is currently set in the following manner:
    • Year 2022 - 431,645 newcomers
    • Year 2023 - 447,055 newcomers
    • Year 2024 - 451,000 newcomers
  • In all, the Canadian government will send invites to approximately 1.5 million newcomers by the end of 2024.
  • French-speaking Express Entry candidates will be granted additional CRS points for their proficiency in the French language. Here are the specifics:
    • For French-speaking candidates, the number of points increases from 15 to 25.
    • For bilingual candidates, the points will be raised from 30 to 50.
