Since Canada stated that it would resume accepting FSWP, FSTP, and CEC applications after an 18-month hiatus, this was the second all-program Express Entry draw.
Canada invited 1,750 new Express Entry applicants to submit applications for permanent residency on July 20. One of the main methods the Canadian government uses to welcome immigrants is the well-known Express Entry program, which is currently on track to accept 55,900 immigrants. These figures will soar to 111,500 by 2024.
In 2022, Canada has already sent out 12,615 invitations, and all but two of them were specifically targeted toward PNP candidates.
The lowest Comprehensive Ranking System score needed to be invited to the draw on July 20 was 542, which was 15 points lower than the July 6 all-program draw.
Invited applicants came from the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or the Canadian Experience Class because this was a no program-specified draw (CEC). In comparison to the 1,500 ITAs granted in the prior all-program draw, Canada issued 250 additional ITAs in this draw.
Second Express Entry draw for all programs since December
Since Canada declared that it would resume accepting FSWP, FSTP, and CEC applications, this was the second all-program Express Entry draw. After an 18-month hiatus, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) conducted this all-program with only Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) applicants being invited.
