The Express Entry system just held its fifth draw of 2020 , it is the first one for March and keeping the momentum going from the first four draws, it did not disappoint. 3,900 invitations were issued to applicants to apply for permanent residency in Canada. While that was a few less than the last draws staggering 4,500, it was still the second highest amount of ITAs for a single draw in 2020. The Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) cut off was set at 471 points, only a point higher than the last draw. If you’re consering immigrating to Canada, the Express Entry system is certainly the quickest and most effective method of doing so.

Express Entry

Express Entry Draw-Canadian Immigration The Express Entry System is an immigration stream that was created in 2015 with the goal of fast tracking the immigration process for skilled and experienced foreigners who wish to immigrate to and settle in Canada permanently. To be eligible for Express Entry you must fall into one of the following categories: 1. Federal Skilled Worker Program 2. Federal Skilled Trades Program 3.Canadian Experience Class If you meet the requirements of one of the above programs, you may be eligible for Express Entry and must create an Express Entry profile. You will be required to enter all your information regarding your age, educational qualifications, experience, language ability, skills transferability, background information and the same for your spouse or common law partner if you have one. All these factors will be tallied to determine your CRS. There are ways to boost your CRS and push you to the top of the pool which we will look at now.

Provincial Nomination Program

Express Entry through provincial nomination program When you create your Express Entry profile, there are two ways to obtain a provincial nomination. The first option is to simply create an expression of interest in the province you are interested in settling and working in. If your skills match up with their in demand labour requirements, they may contact you and issue you a nomination. The second option is to contact the province directly and apply for a permanent residency through the PNP if you have a valid job offer in that province. Each province has different PNP streams and requirements through which you can apply. You will still obtain permanent residency through the Express Entry System. If you have a job offer and receive a provincial nomination, the PNP can assist you in obtaining a work permit on an expedited basis while your application for permanent residency is being processed through the Express Entry system.
