As a potential immigrant, it is only natural that you are worried about when you should enter the Express Entry Pool. But relax as you are not the only one to be stressing about this question.
According to the recent announcement by the Canadian department of immigration, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is prepared to welcome over 1 million immigrants in the next few years. This is happening from 2021 to 2023. A special plan is crafted called the Immigration Levels Plan 2021- 2023.
As maintained by this plan, Maple country will welcome over 400,000 newcomers each year.
During the covid restraints, the government of Canada was not so hopeful but the post-pandemic scenario is quite different than what it was before. Canada now is creating history by welcoming the most number of emigrants ever.
The statistics tell that almost 60 percent of these newcomers land in Canada as skilled workers through Express Entry System.
Express Entry is the supreme gateway to Canada but it is not the only one. Those who are successful in immigrating to Canada via Express Entry, go to the next option which is called the Federal Skilled Worker Program.
Candidates who have applied under the FSWP accumulate to almost 50 percent of the Express Entry candidates before the pandemic. The rest of the half comes through the other three pathways called
All of the year, IRCC has only granted Express Entry applications to CEC and PNP candidates. It is justified as all of the CEC and PNP candidates are staying in Canada currently which reduced the troubles related to the pandemic. Therefore, it is the best time for them to get done with the permanent residence in Canada.
Right now hundreds of candidates are waiting in the Express Entry Pool until The IRCC sends them an Invitation to Apply (ITA). These are mostly FSWP candidates.
There is a general notion of thinking that it is better to wait until the department of immigration resumes sending invites but this is a wrong decision. If you deeply analyze the cost-benefit and advantages it will bring to you, it is the right time to apply now!
The one drawback of entering the pool right now is that your language test will expire within two years of not receiving an Invitation to Apply by the IRCC. You will be troubled for taking the test and retests if luck doesn’t favor you for two years.
To summarise, if you are not in the Express Entry Pool chances are that you will never receive an ITA instead of being in the pool and getting a lucky chance of receiving an invitation.
We don’t know when IRCC will resume inviting FSWP candidates
Express Entry System is a systematic process that leaves no chance of being predictable. It is competitive in nature. It gives chance to candidates who are well-deserving since they have fetched the highest score. The entire process is fair and transparent. This system was also built to bridge the labor gap in certain Canadian provinces. Lately, the Express Entry System has become incalculable since the doubtful nature of the pandemic.
On February 13th this year, Express Entry held a draw on a Saturday (which is very different for its nature since IRCC usually holds draws on Wednesdays and Thursdays) and during the weekend IRCC sent as many as 27,332 Invitations to Apply to the Canadian Experience Class Candidates.
The last draw had a figure of sending 5,000 ITAs. With a CRS score cutoff lowest ever- 75.
The dynamic nature of this system comes as a surprise if you are not prepared well. At least being in the pool gives you a chance to be potentially selected for a draw that took place o a Saturday
If you have entered the pool, you have a chance to receive a Provincial nomination invitation
The good news is that if you are selected for a provincial Nomination you get an extra 600 points added to your existing score. That means you are now liable to receive an EE (Express Entry) Invitation to Apply. The nature of a Canadian province is that they usually invite Express Entry candidates to apply for a Provincial Nominee Program. To do this you get to get a provincial nomination certificate. Once you have ownership of the certificate, you have to inform IRCC to grant a credit score of 600 points which means getting an ITA for the next Express Entry draw is possible for you.
If you are in the pool, you are eligible to make a plus account in Canadian Job Bank.
Having this entrance can assist you with coordinating with reasonable business openings which might build your opportunities to get a bid for employment. Qualified propositions for employment can bring about you acquiring an extra 50 or 200 CRS focuses. These focuses won’t ensure that you will get an ITA, yet they sure will help your possibilities. Accepting you do get an ITA, you will be on favorable terms to rapidly incorporate into the Canadian work market through your coordinated business.
It is justifiable to be wavering with regards to entering the Express Entry pool now, however, it is to your advantage to do as such. Remember that Canada esteems your abilities and gifts and needs you to move here. In the long run, IRCC will re-could leave you one bit nearer to accomplishing your objective of moving to Canada.
