Why Canada Did Not Hold An Express Entry Draw This Week?
Express Entry draw in this week cannot take place due to some of the changes in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score that is generally made by the federal government.
The federal department of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has disclosed that the absence of the regularly-scheduled draw generally arises from the result of IRCC’s announcement that held on Tuesday that will now assign more CRS points to the French-speaking Express Entry candidates.
Under its Express Entry application management system, IRCC usually allows immigration applicants a CRS score, which is generally given on behalf of their age, education, language skills, work experience, among other criteria.
Every two weeks, Especially on Wednesday, IRCC carry on with the Express entry draws is generally inviting the highest-scoring applicants to get entitled to apply for permanent residence.
The recent draws were held on Wednesday, October 14, the immense express entry draw ever.
Immigration applicants were promptly waiting for this week’s draw, which was looking to take place on Wednesday, October 28, but due to its absence, it has created troubles due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Though, IRCC has mentioned that the absence of this week’s draw is not generally related to the coronavirus pandemic.
Rather, with up to more than 30 CRS points assigned to the French-speaking Express Entry applicants, on the other side IRCC also needs to modernize the CRS scores of the applicants under the Express Entry pool.
The moment this update is complete, immigration applicants looking for the Express Entry draws reconsider to the regular bi-weekly intervals.
Canada’s most essential immigration Levels Plan 2021-2023 yesterday’s announcement is one indication for the IRCC plans to bring its Express Entry operations can quickly get back to normal. Under this New Immigration Levels Plan, Canada is preparing to invite more than 400,000 immigrants annually, and also an average of 110,000 immigrants will get permitted by the Express Entry programs between 2021-2023.
The main motive of these CRS changes that took place at the beginning of this week is to inspire more for the Francophone skilled workers to immigrate to the communities across Canada. Canada has its two official languages English and French, and it also focuses on retaining a powerful Francophone character, in large part to attract Francophone immigrants. Quebec runs its renowned immigration precisely with the same purpose. At the national level, IRCC has authorization to further boosts immigration to all other provinces and territories.
IRCC has an objective of Francophone that contains 4.4 percent of all the immigration that are generally outside of Quebec, but these numbers are currently standing at 2.8 percent. These CRS changes are planning to help IRCC in achieving all his goals.
Express entry pool is the main platform where Canada manages all of his skills worker applications. It generally manages applications for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Selected candidates will be receiving the invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence. Canada has also provided 82,850 ITAs in the year 2020, which was generally higher than any other year that also at the same time since the express entry pool that was launched in 2015.
Now, the figures for ITAs will be continuously increasing as Canada will welcome an overall 400,000 per year under its 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan.
