The Latest Canada Express Entry Draw

Prediction for the 2022 Canada Express Entry Next Draw

The expedited entry method is the most popular and fastest immigration program for Canada PR Visa holders. It is an application management system that was introduced in 2015 and controls the profiles of immigrants who have filed for PR visas under three federal economic immigration programs:

“FSWP” stands for “Federal Skilled Worker Program.”

FST stands for “Federal Skilled Trades Program” (FSTP).

First Class for Canadian Experience (CEC)

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is used to rank express entry profiles in the pool. The highest-ranked profiles are given ITAs (Invitation to Apply) to apply for a PR Visa with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Every two weeks, the Canadian government holds an Express Entry draw. The next Canada Express admission draw is scheduled for August 31, 2022.

When is the next express entry draw scheduled?

Express Entry drawings are usually held on a Wednesday every two weeks. Because of COVID-19, Canada is focusing on CEC and Express Entry candidates with provincial nominations through program-specific express entrance drawings. Canada prefers individuals who are already in the country.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Express Entry

Canada is still sending out invites to PR visa applicants. However, from the beginning of January 2021, invites were only delivered to candidates who had received provincial or CEC nominations.

The IRCC has said that it will not decline an incomplete request for missing documents as a result of COVID-19.

If your PR visa application is due, you can submit it with the missing papers, but you must attach a letter of explanation detailing the missing material and the reason for it. IRCC will allow you 90 days to finish the remaining steps in your application.

The lowest cut-off score for CRS points is 75. (CEC)

The highest CRS points cut-off score in all program draws is 462 and 813 in PNP-specific draws.
