NEW EXPRESS ENTRY ROUND OF INVITATIONS - May 25, 2022

The Government of Canada issued on May 25 another round of invitations for permanent residence to 589 candidates in its Express Entry pool. The invitations targeted candidates under the Provincial Nominee Program who have been selected by Canada's provinces and territories based on their skills, education, work experience and ability to contribute to the economy of the province or territory that nominated them. Additionally, those candidates want to live in that province or territory that nominated them. The cutoff score for this round was 741. 

 

Express Entry is an online system that the Government of Canada uses to manage applications for permanent residence from skilled workers. Candidates in the pool are ranked using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). CRS points are awarded based on the applicant's age, education, language proficiency, work experience and other factors.  The highest-ranking candidates in the pool are selected and invited to apply for permanent residence.

CANADA'S IMMIGRATION LEVELS PLAN 2022 - 2024 ANNOUNCED - FEBRUARY 14, 2022

Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, tabled the 2022‒2024 Immigration Levels Plan, which charts an ambitious but responsible path for immigration that will help the Canadian economy recover and fuel post-pandemic growth, all while strengthening communities and industries across the country that rely on immigration.

To ensure Canada has the workers it needs to fill critical labour market gaps and support a strong economy into the future, the 2022–2024 Immigration Levels Plan  aims to continue welcoming immigrants at a rate of about 1% of Canada’s population, including 431,645 permanent residents in 2022, 447,055 in 2023, and 451,000 in 2024. This plan builds on the previous levels plan, with an increased focus on supporting Canada's economic resurgence and post-pandemic growth.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms sets out those rights and freedoms that Canadians believe are necessary in a free and democratic society. It forms part of The Constitution of Canada – the highest law in all of Canada – and is one of the country’s greatest accomplishments.  

IRCC iNCREASES POINTS UNDER EXPRESS ENTRY FOR FRENCH-SPEAKING AND BILINGUAL CANDIDATES

On October 27, 2020, the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, today announced that French-speaking and bilingual candidates will receive additional points under the Express Entry system. Express Entry is an online system used to manage applications for permanent residence from skilled workers. This change will help deliver on the government’s commitment to reach the target of 4.4% French-speaking immigrant admissions outside Quebec by 2023.

While French-speaking immigration to Canada outside of Quebec has been increasing, recent data indicates that existing selection tools will not be sufficient to reach the 4.4% target by 2023. Awarding additional points to candidates with strong French language skills via Express Entry could increase French-speaking immigrant admissions to the 4.4% target by 2023. Making progress towards reaching this target will be facilitated by an eventual easing of travel restrictions associated with the global pandemic.

The change announced today will see the current number of points increase from 15 to 25 for French-speaking candidates and from 30 to 50 for bilingual candidates. This comes after we initially awarded points in June 2017 to candidates with strong French language skills.
