Canada Welcome 2000 candidates through Recent Express Entry under All-Program Draw

Published on : August 2, 2023

The IRCC released the next round of invitations for the 2000 candidates on August 1, 2023. This time, the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score was 517, the highest of all. However, the Express Entry is for All-Program draw, and qualified applicants from any of the three programs got the invitation.

The Department of Immigration for Canada primarily targets foreign nationals who are qualified to fill a labor market deficit. Canada is quickly rebounding from the covid outbreak conditions and filling the labor gap in all industries since it is the land of international talents and qualified professionals.

What is Express Entry in All-Program Draw?

Express entry is a gateway of the application management system that allows global nationals to apply for permanent residence in Canada. Canada has launched three programs under which the deserving candidate can fit themselves to receive the invitations to apply ( ITA). They are Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Trades Programs.

The eligibility is different, and candidates should meet the requirements to receive the ITA. However, Express Entry candidates are evaluated based on human capital factors, including educational qualifications, working experience, professions, English language proficiency, and age.

Further, the profile will be scrutinized under a point-based system to assess your eligibility which will be based on your skills and educational background. The system is called Comprehensive Ranking Score. Your profile score will further decide whether you get entry into the Express Entry pool or not.

However, the minimum CRS will be decided by the Immigration minister. Candidates who meet the minimum score requirements will get an entry to receive the invitations. The maximum CRS score holders will be ahead in the race to get a Permanent Residence visa.

The Good News for Several Professions

This year on May 31, Canada launched a new category-based selection process, which emphasizes more on professionals from several occupations. With the occupational benefits, candidates should meet the minimum CRS score for the further go-ahead process. The new six categories included in the Express Entry pool are:

  • Healthcare
  • Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)
  • Small-scale trades such as Carpenters, Plumbers, and Contractors
  • Transport
  • Agriculture & Agri-Food
  • Experienced French-language Proficiency

Canada has undergone an acute labor shortage in the above industries. The country is determined to fill the gap and contribute significantly to its economic growth.
