The return of all-program draws is significant for multiple reasons

Since December 2020, IRCC has not conducted invited FSWP candidates due to border restrictions. Further, CEC candidates were not entertained after September 2021. Canada fulfilled its immigration obligations by inviting candidates with provincial nominations to apply for permanent residency. 

Any willing foreign skilled workers with/without a job offer or without any work experience in Canada before being eligible to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry pathway. 

Alternatively, a temporary resident or international student in Canada may also qualify for Canada PR after gaining at least 1 year of Canadian work experience. 

All-program Express Entry draws occur when IRCC considers all candidates in the Express Entry pool and issues invitations to apply (ITA) for permanent residence only on the basis of their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. 

By 2024, Canada will welcome over 110,000 Express Entry immigrants per year. 

How to qualify for Canada PR via Express Entry? 

Immigration in Canada means obtaining permanent residency. 

Qualifying for PR via Express Entry is a two-step process.

  • Step2: Candidates can upload their Express Entry profile onto IRCC’s website. 

All the registered profiles are then assessed and ranked based on the CRS score. 

Such profiles are evaluated on a total of 1200 points. The human capital criteria like 

  • age, 
  • education, 
  • work experience outside Canada, 
  • language proficiency in English/French, 
  • spouse adaptability, 
  • Canadian study experience, etc. are considered for evaluation purposes.
