Express Entry

3600 candidates invited to apply for permanent residence in new Express Entry draw

The new Express Entry draw held July 10 invited 3,600 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence. It is the largest single invitation so far in 2019.

The cut-off score in this draw was 460, a two-point decrease from the previous draw’s minimum score of 462.

IRCC has issued 45,400 ITAs to Express Entry candidates in 2019 so far, which is more than 5,700 invitations over the same period in 2018. The larger draw scale reflects the higher admissions targets that have been set for both 2019 and 2020. 

In the first half of 2019, the cut-off score ranged from the lowest 438 to the highest 470. This pertains to all three federal economic immigration categories: the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class. 

Eligible candidates under these categories can enter into the Express Entry pool, where they are ranked based on their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores.

The highest-ranked candidates are issued invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence, through regular draws from the pool, which usually happen every two weeks.

A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for the EE pool. There are 36,000 more places still waiting to be filled this year. Contacting us now, you can be one of them.

Canada Immigration Minister Advocates for Spreading the Positive Impacts of Immigration to Counteract Fear

Ahmed Hussen, the Canadian Immigration Minister, stressed the positive aspects and effects of immigration on the country and the economy while addressing international immigration experts at the annual International Metropolis Conference.

This year’s theme for the conference, which was “The Promise of Migration” is what Hussen calls “the kind of conversation we should be having”. 

Over 1000 immigration officials and experts based internationally were in attendance. 

Hussen spoke of his experience serving as Canada’s Immigration Minister, and how it has opened his eyes to the value of welcoming new citizens to the country, as well as Canada’s attitude towards immigrants. The country is generally known to be quite receptive and accommodating to immigrants, which Hussen believes has only served it well in terms of social and economic growth. 

“In Canada, I always knew intellectually and from reading reports just how crucial the injection of new immigrants and workers is to our economy. But it wasn’t until I became a minister and I travelled from coast to coast in Canada that I realized just how severe those shortages were and how small and medium and large businesses relied on workers to grow their businesses and contribute to the local economy. They’re one of the biggest champions of increasing immigration numbers into Canada.” Hussen said to the audience. 

He went on to say that putting emphasis on the good outcomes of immigration due to a recent growth in fear and anti-immigrant sentiments. Since the inauguration of current U.S. president Donald Trump, anti-immigrant and racially profiling propaganda has been on the rise.

Hussen says that promoting the positive impacts that immigrants have in the community and the nation is the best weapon to combat these fears.

 “The best weapon against fear is facts; facts don’t lie and the numerous studies continue to show that migrants make an enormous contribution to our economies and our societies,” Hussen explained.

“Our job as stakeholders as government as all of you working in [the immigration] space, is to fight fear with facts, to push the reality, the positive impact of immigration on the local economy, the positive role that immigration can and does play in meeting demographic challenges, in filling unfilled jobs, in bringing much-needed skills to countries like Canada. We need to highlight that, we cannot take those facts for granted, that everybody understands them or is aware of them.”

Hussen himself originally came to Canada as a refugee from Somalia, and cited a recent study conducted by the United Nations which revealed that Canada had welcomed the most refugees in 2018 when asked what he is most proud of. 

He felt that this shows that Canada is being recognized for its compassion towards fellow humans, and is seen as a place of hope and opportunity for those who are lost or without a place to call home. 

“I’m proud that we have demonstrated to many other countries and politicians who have tried to use immigration as a tool to divide people, we have demonstrated through our government’s actions and through the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government that you can be both strong and effective in protecting your country and the health and safety of your citizens while being compassionate and open to refugees. You don’t have to pick one or the other. You can do both, and we have demonstrated that.”

Express Entry

New Express Entry draw sees cut-off score drop by 3 points

A new Express Entry draw held June 26 invited 3,350 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

The cut-off score in this draw was 462, a three-point decrease from the previous draw’s minimum score of 465.

It was the second consecutive draw to see the cut-off score drop since May 29, when it reached 470.

The time between draws is a crucial variable that influences the cut-off CRS score. The lower cut-off score in the last two Express Entry (EE) draw may be because Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) returned to draw biweekly.

When more time passes between draws, a greater number of candidates with higher scores were able to enter the pool, which can have the effect of driving up the cut-off score. 

The gap of early a month between all-programs draws explains the unusual high cut-off score in the draw held on May 29.

IRCC has now issued 41,800 ITAs to EE candidates in 2019, which is 2100 ahead of IRCC’s 2018 pace.

Express Entry is an online registration system used to apply for permanent resident in Canada, which manages applications for three economic immigration programs:  Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. 

A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for the EE pool.

H-1B problems draw more foreign workers to Canada

In light of the recent difficulties of obtaining H-1B immigration visas in the United States, more skilled foreign workers are looking to Canada.

The U.S. has an ever-increasing rejection rate for visa applications, whereas Canada’s immigration system is much more efficient and has higher approval rates. Many workers who had tried to get an H-1B visa in the United States have instead successfully moved to Canada, where they have found more opportunities awaiting them.

The H-1B program in the United States has been on the decline since Donald Trump took over from former president Barack Obama. The policies have becomes stricter, and many have lost faith in the system’s design and fairness.

While highly skilled foreign workers are being rejected in the U.S., they are greatly valued by Canadian governments. Because of this, the immigration process for moving to Canada has been made easier in recent years.

Canada Express Entry system

In 2015, Canada created the Express Entry system, which evaluates candidates based on age, skill level, language proficiency, and education, and does not require the applicant to secure a job offer before obtaining a visa.

In addition, the Provincial Nominee Programs are designed to fit the local needs of each province, making it easy for residency applicants to see where they will find the most opportunities.

There are temporary work permits available for skilled foreign workers, which can take only 10 days to obtain.

With Canada’s better immigration system, it is easy to see why so many workers are making the move to the Great North.
