Are you one of the best fits for the Canadian immigration programs? The Canadian Express Entry program held its recent entry draw on October 26th to choose the ideal prospective immigrants. The most recent draw was the ninth in a series of draws that started when the all-program draws began on July 6th.
Invitations for the Express Entry were sent to 4 750 prospective members with a score of 496 in the Comprehensive Ranking (CRS) scoring system. Invitations under the plan were made to candidates from the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). All the CEC, FSTP, and FSWP programs work under the Express Entry System.
What About PNP?
Are you a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidate who’s in the Express Entry pool? If so, you’re already part of one of the FSTP, FSWP, and CEC plans. The Express Entry plan uses a point-based program and the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRM) to rank the profiles of candidates.
Top-scoring candidates under these programs get an ITA (Invitation to Apply), which allows the candidates to make applications for permanent Canadian residency.
What Happens After the ITA?
After the ITA, an IRCC officer checks the applicant’s paperwork and decides whether to approve the application or not. If the application gets approved, then you attain permanent Canadian residency. The acquisition of residence is not equal to the acquisition of Canadian citizenship, but it’s a step closer to citizenship.
Now that you’re in Canada, what are your new perspectives?
