Express Entry Invitations issued in 2021
Canada remains on track to meet their ambitious immigration targets for 2021. To date this year, Canada has invited 110,377 candidates to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry system. Around the same time last year, Canada had invited about 82,850 candidates.
Canada aims to welcome a record-breaking number of immigrants in 2021 of 401,000. Of this total, Canada plans to target 232,500 economic newcomers; 108,500 will include Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, and Canadian Experience Class candidates. Another 80,800 immigrants will include Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) applicants.
What is Express Entry?
Canada’s most popular immigration programs use the online Express Entry system to manage applications. There are three programs that use Express Entry: the Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program. PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool have already qualified for one of these programs.
Express Entry uses a points-based system, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), to rank candidates’ profiles. The top-scoring candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA), and can then apply for permanent residency.
How Express Entry draws work
Approximately every two weeks, Canada holds an Express Entry draw, inviting the most competitive candidates to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.
In each round of invitations, Canada will target both a minimum CRS score and immigration program. Prior to the pandemic, most Express Entry draws did not specify an immigration program. This means that anyone who met the CRS cut-off received an invitation, regardless of the program they had applied under. Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Canada has mainly targeted candidates who were likely to already be in Canada. Since March 2020, aside from a brief period between September and December 2020, most draws have targeted candidates eligible under the Canadian Experience Class or a Provincial Nominee Program.
Express Entry Next Draw Date 2021
Express Entry next draw date prediction: next Express Entry draw will be on October 27, 2021.
The Canadian government conducts an Express Entry draw approximately every two weeks. Most recently it has been a trend that the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has been conducting the Express Entry draw date on a fortnightly basis which is about every 15 days. The frequency of 15 days might change but a minimum of two express entry draws occur in a month.
