Canada latest Express Entry  draw. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 3,600 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence in a new draw held November 13. IRCC has now invited 75,300 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent Residence in 2019.

The Express Entry system allows Canada to actively recruit, assess and select skilled immigrants under the three Federal High Skilled economic-class immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Class; the Federal Skilled Trades Class; and the Canadian Experience Class.

In order to enter the federal Express Entry pool, candidates must first meet the eligibility requirements for one of the three programs. The first step is to create an Express Entry profile. A job offer is not required to enter or be selected from the Express Entry pool. A certain number of the highest-ranked candidates who have submitted their profiles into the pool are issued ITAs for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws which typically take place every two weeks. A candidate’s CRS score is based on factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.
