There remained more applicants invited to apply for permanent residence in 2020’s first quarter express entry round than there appeared in the first two-quarters of the two preceding years. Also, the individual PNP channels have conducted well over 30 drawings since the start of 2020. Moreover, starting on the 18th of March, 2020, the Canadian government has undertaken a total of seven draws.
These seven draws occurred in the expedited entry stream, and the nation has extended invitations to nominees for the Canadian immigration program. The previous draw, held on the 16th of April, resulted in the threshold score declining to 455, and this is the smallest number required in the year 2020. While the coronavirus has altered the landscape of immigration to this country, the year started as a banner year for expedited entry.
Remember, the expedited entry process is the number one source of highly skilled immigrants to Canada. Also, several fast entry channels in Canada have extended an invitation since the implementation of the coronavirus movement restrictions on the 18th of March in the year 2020. These fast entry channels include the channels in the provinces of Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.
Additionally, the nation invites a specified number of highest-ranked candidates to request admission to permanent residence in this country through periodic drawings.
