About Express Entry draw
Canada has started Express Entry draw from January 1, 2015. The draw was introduced for the management of skilled worker applications under Federal Economic Programs. The following programs are included:
The target of invitations for 2022 is 411,000. It is very difficult to predict the CRS scores.
The number of invitations was dropped for CEC since September 2021. And no draws were also available for Federal Skilled Worker Program since December 2020. There was no program specific draws, and anybody have the option to get an invitation through any program related to Express Entry.
Because of restrictions due to COVID-19, Canada decided to focus on transitioning temporary residents to permanent residents. This strategy helped in reducing the number of Express Entry applications. The processing time was also increased due to the backlog.
