All these candidates had previously received provincial nominations and were awarded an additional 600 points toward their overall score. This means without the provincial nomination the candidate would have had a CRS of 96.
The CRS ranks human capital factors such as
- Work experience,
- education, and
- Official language proficiency
To Determine which Express Entry candidates would have a high likelihood of succeeding in the Canadian labour market.
A tie-break rule was applied in this draw. All candidates with a CRS score of at least 696 who submitted their profile before April 23, 2020, at 10:39:30 UTC, received an ITA in this round.
Since the government announced special coronavirus measures restricting travel on March 18, Canada has been holding regular Express Entry draws targeting provincial nominees and Canadian Experience Class candidates.
So far in 2020, the government of Canada has held 15 draws through these two programs and issued tens of thousands of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence.
Immigration targets are currently on track to exceed last year’s levelsas this was declared earlier in 2020. Canada Government is ready to welcome 1 million Immigrantst till 2022. Despite travel restrictions, more ITAs were issued this year than at the same time in 2019. To date, as of June 24, a total of 46,392 principal applicants have been invited to apply for permanent residence in 2020.
In Recent weeks we have also seen an impressive amount of activity among Canada’s Express Entry-linked provincial nominee streams. In the past 7 days alone, more than a thousand Express Entry candidates have been contacted by Canada’s provinces to apply for a provincial nomination.
These streams allow Canada’s provinces and territories to choose candidates in the federal Express Entry system who meet their individual labour market needs and nominate them for Canadian permanent residence.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination through one of Canada’s Express Entry-linked streams, the first step is to submit an Express Entry profile.
