Canada plans to welcome over 401,000 newcomers in 2021, and most of them will arrive through Express Entry System. The country has set out the most ambitious immigration targets over the next few years. While we do not know how Canada will meet this target, we know that the country has to maintain a record-high immigration level to reach its goal of welcoming newcomers.
The year 2021 looks promising already, as Canada has invited over 25,000 permanent residents this year. Recently, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the largest Express Entry draw wherein it invited 27 332 applicants with at least 75 Canada PR points. They restricted the draw to Canada Experience Class candidates.
Besides CEC-specific draws, IRCC has also conducted various draws for applicants who had successfully applied through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). In February, Canada’s government invited every candidate under the CEC category to apply for over 27000 invitations. Now March has arrived, with two draws for PNP candidates and another big draw, 5,000 ITAs, for CEC candidates.
We can’t predict what would happen in the next Express Entry draw. All we know is that Canada is determined to welcome more and more newcomers through express entry programs and would do anything to maintain its immigration levels. Travel restrictions delay Canada from achieving its target; however, the immigration minister has clearly stated that the efforts will be focused on inviting new residents and providing temporary residents the support they need to become permanent residents.
Why to Start Express Entry Process?
For candidates in Canada, this is the right time to apply for a Canada PR visa through the express entry program. You can directly enter the pool and wait for the Invitation to Apply. Even if you have low CRS scores, you can take essential measures to boost your scores. You can take the IELTS exam again or get your credentials assessed, get a job offer, etc.
Candidates outside Canada
Canada will soon welcome overseas applicants once the travel restrictions are lifted. The Covid-19 pandemic has prompted countries worldwide to enforce travel restrictions as a public safety measure, and Canada is no exception.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised that everyone in Canada will get the vaccine shots by the end of September 2021. Though it is still uncertain when Canada will lift the travel restrictions, candidates can hope that soon things will get back to their previous order.
So, if you are planning to migrate to Canada with your family, this is the right time. The Canadian immigration process can take up to several months, making much sense to start it with no further delay.
