How low CRS score requirement will drop down this time around

Express Entry is Canada’s federal and world’s most popular immigration system. It is the fastest pathway to move to Canada on permanent residence visa. Hence, the discussions, speculations and buzz prior to every express entry draw is obvious thing to happen. This year, it is more so because IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada), has kept the applicants with low CRS score waiting since long.

Let’s find out more about the current trend of express entry draws and possibilities with regards to the upcoming draw of federal express entry system.

Express Entry Draw trends in 2018

This year, express entry draws followed some key trends whether it is about qualifying marks, number of invitations in a draw, or frequency of the draws.

Qualifying marks remained 440 or above throughout the year

This year, the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) requirement or qualifying marks remained 440 or above all through the year. It never came down below 440 mark in any of the Express Entry draws opened so far in the year 2018. It has been consistently hovering around this mark in last five draws, as you can see in the graph above, i.e. 441, 440, 440, 440, 441. It was 441 in the latest draw launched on September 19, 2018. This is definitely some sort of arrangement done by IRCC to keep the qualifying marks around this mark.

Stable number of Invitations

The number of Invitations issued by IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) in every draw of federal express entry system, have also remained quite stable so far in the year.

In fact, from June 13th to August 22, 2018 it remained the same, i.e. 3750 invites in all six draws launched between these days. This trend was observed in 1st and 2nd quarter as well, when same number of invites were issued for four consistent draws, in each quarter. This again a trend which seemed to have some thinking or plan behind it, as same number of invitations issued continuously for a long time.

What are the expectation from upcoming EE draws?

All the candidates registered in the express entry with relatively low CRS Score, are eager to know as to what decision IRCC will make with regards to upcoming Express Entry draw results. Whether it will continue the ongoing trend or give some respite to the applicants in the final quarter of the year.

The speculations or predictions are hard to make considering the unexpected draw results this year and last year as well, however, experts believe that the IRCC can reduce the CRS score requirement marginally in the last quarter of the year. Although this reduction will not be huge. However, one thing is sure that even the small reduction is likely to invite huge number of candidates.

Canada Express Entry Immigration to Canada via Express Entry System

Saskwatchewan issues first Occupations In-Demand invitations through new EOI system

The SINP switched to an Expression of Interest system for its Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry sub-categories in July.

Saskatchewan has issued its first invitations through the new Expression of Interest system for its Occupations In-Demand immigration sub-category.

In an update published September 20, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) says it issued 140 invitations to candidates in the Occupations In-Demand sub-category, which targets eligible skilled workers with work experience in one of Saskatchewan’s in-demand occupations.

The lowest-ranked candidate had a score of 75 points on Saskatchewan’s unique point-based assessment grid and the SINP specified that those invited all had Educational Credential Assessments, which are required in order to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan.

Anyone interested in immigrating to Saskatchewan through the Occupations In-Demand sub-category must first complete an Expression of Interest (EOI), a pre-application process that determines one’s eligibility.

Candidates must meet the minimum threshold of 60 points out of a possible 100 on factors such as education and training, skilled work experience, language ability, age, and connections to Saskatchewan’s labour market / adaptability. Those who meet this minimum and the sub-category’s other criteria are then entered into the pool of candidates, where they are ranked against the competition.

EOI candidates with the highest scores are issued invitations to apply for a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan through periodic draws from the EOI pool. The SINP says the number of invitations issued in each draw “is dependent on annual processing targets and employment demands.”

Candidates whose provincial nomination application is approved by Saskatchewan can then apply to Canada’s federal government for permanent residence.

Saskatchewan switched to an EOI system for its Occupations In-Demand and Express Entry immigration sub-categories in July. Both are components of Saskatchewan’s International Skilled Worker Category.

Saskatchewan issued its first invitations to EOI candidates in its Express Entry sub-category on August 21.

The SINP says the change allows it to better target immigration candidates who are most likely to succeed in Saskatchewan’s labour market and that “a goal of the EOI system is to ensure strong economic outcomes and long-term retention in Saskatchewan for those invited to apply.”

Previously, the SINP had employed a first-come, first-served approach to applications through the two sub-categories that favoured those quickest to apply when they were opened periodically to candidates.

EOI systems, which prioritize a candidate’s so-called human capital, are now employed by most Canadian provinces. The Government of Canada’s Express Entry system is also EOI-based, as is Quebec’s new approach to selecting candidates through the popular Quebec Skilled Worker Program.

PEI conducts new draw for Express Entry, Labour and Business candidates

Prince Edward Island has issued new invitations to apply for a provincial nomination to candidates in its Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact categories.

The province’s Office of Immigration issued a total of 116 invitations to Express Entry and Labour Impact Category candidates and eight to candidates in its Business Impact Category.

The minimum score for Business Impact Category candidates was 152. PEI’s Office of Immigration did not provide a minimum score for the Labour Impact and Express Entry invitations.

Express Entry candidates who wish to be considered under the PEI Express Entry Category must create a profile in the province’s Expression of Interest system. Profiles are reviewed and assigned points based on six selection factors: age, language, education, work experience, employment, and adaptability.

Express Entry candidates who have been invited through the PEI Express Entry Stream have 90 days from the invitation date to submit a complete application to the province’s Office of Immigration. Applicants who are nominated by PEI receive an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points, leaving them well position to receive an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residence.

PEI’s Labour Impact Category is for individuals who possess skills and experience that are needed in PEI’s labour market. The category is divided into three streams: Skilled Workers, Critical Workers and International Graduates.

Controversial business streams now closed

The Government of Prince Edward Island announced last week that the September 20 draw would be the final invitation round for the Business Impact Category’s 100% Ownership and Partial Ownership streams, which had become mired in controversy.

The streams allowed candidates to be nominated for permanent residence by PEI in exchange for opening a business in the province. Investigations revealed, however, that many never opened a business after receiving permanent residence status.

Prince Edward Island says it will maintain the Business Impact Category’s Work Permit Stream, which issues immigrant entrepreneurs with a temporary work permit to start their business and only nominates them for Canadian permanent residence once the terms of their performance agreement are met.

Quebec Skilled Worker Program’s Arrima portal is now open

The new online portal for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program, known as Arrima, is now in service.

Effective today, candidates who are interested in obtaining Canadian permanent residence through the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP) can express their interest to the Government of Quebec by creating a profile using Arrima.

The Government of Quebec switched to an Expression of Interest (EOI) system for the QSWP in August. The EOI system requires all interested candidates to create a profile and provide the requested information on their education, an area of training, proficiency in French and other languages and work experience, among other details.

Quebec’s Immigration Ministry, MIDI, says it will issue invitations to “those who meet certain criteria, focusing mainly on labor market needs in the different regions of Quebec.”

Anyone issued an invitation will then be able to apply to the Government of Quebec for a Quebec Selection Certificate (Certificat de séléction du Québec, or CSQ).

Once a Quebec Selection Certificate is awarded, individuals can submit a complete Canadian permanent residence application to Canada’s federal government.

To find out if you are eligible for the Quebec Skilled Worker Program, fill out a free assessment form.

Eligibility

Unlike the QSWP’s previous first-come, first-served model, there is no cap on the number of candidates who can enter the QSWP bank.

In order to submit a profile, the only requirement is to be at least 18 years of age.

However, in order to be eligible for selection, candidates will have to meet passing scores for employability and selection factors in accordance with the QSWP points grid.

MIDI has provided only limited information on how individuals will be ranked in the QSWP bank of candidates. It has indicated there will be a ranking system, but it is not known if it will be similar to the federal Express Entry system‘s Comprehensive Ranking System, or CRS.

How Arrima works

Users enter a virtual waiting room, where they wait until notified of their turn to access the portal.

Once access is granted, users will have 90 minutes in the portal. MIDI recommends saving frequently in order to avoid losing the information submitted up to that point in the event one’s 90-minute session expires.

Registrants have 30 days to complete their profile, which will remain valid for one year.

Candidates in the EOI pool can update their profile with new information or revise the information provided at any time during the 12-month validity period.

Those invited by Quebec to apply for a Quebec Selection Certificate have 90 days to submit a complete application.
