IRCC held Express entry draw inviting Federal Skilled Trades candidates

Latest Express Entry draw

With the second Express Entry draw in two days, IRCC issues a total 250 Invitation to Apply (ITA) to Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) candidates for Canada PR visa. In order to be invited in this round of invitation, candidates were required to score minimum of 415 CRS points.

This FSTP specific express entry draw was the 7th draw for skilled trades candidates in the history of express entry program. FSTP provides an immigration pathway for skilled immigrants who are qualified in skilled trades.

Candidates were required to have at least 2 years of work experience in one of the following trades and occupations:

  • Industrial, electrical and construction;
  • Maintenance, equipment operation;
  • Technical and supervisor jobs in natural resources, agriculture, and related production;
  • Processing, manufacturing, utilities, central control operations;
  • Chefs, cooks;
  • Butchers or bakers.

Due to the targeted nature of the program, it represents the lowest number of ITAs issued under eligible Express Entry programs. In fact, only 1,000 of the 85,300 ITAs issued in 2019 went to FSTP applicants.

One of the reasons the FSTP is so small is that applicants tend to have lower CRS scores than those who qualify for Express Entry under the Skilled Worker Program or Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

As such, IRCC organizes rare draws specific to the FSTP so that candidates for the selected trades can meet the needs of the Canadian labor market.

Today was the first FSTP-specific express entry draw of this year and the first since October 16, 2019.
