On July 20, Canada invited 1,750 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence. Express Entry is one of the primary methods by which Canada welcomes newcomers. Canada is on track to welcome 55,900 immigrants through Express Entry in 2022, with the target increasing to 111,500 by 2024.
Candidates with a Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score of at least 542 were invited. Because no programme was specified for this draw, candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) could be invited.
The CRS requirement for the new draw is 15 points lower than the minimum cut-off score for the previous all-program draw on July 6, which was 557. Furthermore, Canada issued 250 more invitations in this round than in the previous round of 1,500 invitations.
