What are the Human Capital factors Considered for Immigrant Workers?
All candidates applying for Express Entry draws at the federal and provincial levels will be given points based on the Comprehensive Ranking System. That means, Federal and Provincial Nominee Programs will award points based on a candidate’s human capital factor such as;
- Work experience
- Language abilities in English or French
Candidates with the highest scores will receive invitations to apply for a Canadian permanent residence.
In case there are ties among the candidates who applied to the Express Entry draw, whether at the provincial or federal level, the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada will apply the tie-breaking rule.
What is the Deadline for sending Express Entry Profiles?
For the November 5th draw, candidates who received an invitation were expected to send in their Express Entry profiles by October 26th, 2020, at 22:44:19 UTC. Failure to do so might nullify a candidate’s eligibility for permanent residence.
The CRS Scoring Requirements
For 2020, the Comprehensive Ranking System’s scoring requirements typically hovered above 470 points for provincial as well as federal program draws except for two instances.
One instance happened with the Federal Skilled Trades Program, where candidates with a CRS of 415 were accepted for the August 6th, 2020 draw.
The second instance was with the Canadian Experience Class draw, where candidates with 440 points were accepted. These are the only instances where the scoring requirements went below 470.
The Advantage of Apply through the PNP-Only Draw
PNP-only draws usually have higher requirements because any candidate who gets an invitation from this program is automatically awarded 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.
The PNP program also offers candidates alternative pathways to get permanent residence in case their CRS score is below the cut-off point.
The latest draw held on November 5th, 2020, brings the total number of Invitation to Apply (ITAs) to 87,350 this year. The year is shaping up as a record-breaker for the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada. Canada has so far recorded the highest number of ITAs despite the year beginning with a global pandemic that disrupted all activities.
