Canada invited 529 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence on May 13, 2020. Canada has now invited 34,829 immigration candidates so far this year.
This PNP-specific draw appears to follow a pattern from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) where Express Entry draws will alternate between targeting candidates with provincial nominations, and those from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). The previous Express Entry draw selected only CEC candidates and had a CRS cut off of 452, which is the lowest of the year so far.
IRCC has been holding Express Entry rounds this way since Canada closed its borders in an effort to stop the spread of coronavirus on March 18. For a while the future of Express Entry draws was uncertain, as these times have often been described in general. However, if we look back on the years it seems despite travel restrictions, and this new way of conducting Express Entry draws, there have still been more ITAs issued in 2020 than the same time in 2019 and 2018.
The people who are eligible for one of these programs submit their profile into the Express Entry pool, where they are given a CRS score based on their human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and language ability in English or French. The highest-ranked candidates are then invited to apply for permanent residence through regular Express Entry draws.
