PNP and CEC Draws to continue

Canada is yet to conduct an open draw in the current year. Canada will continue inviting only PNP and CEC candidates till pandemic travel restrictions are lifted. Based on last years trends, an all program draw might be pushed back to second half of 2021.

The goal appears to retain individuals staying and working in Canada since candidates outside the country cannot travel to Canada even if they complete all the formalities.

Canada has a goal to invite over 1.2 million immigrants over the next three years. Refer to Canada immigration target 2021-2023.

CEC Draws have crossed 80k invitations so far in 2021

With this draw, the total number of invitations issued this year has reached 81,713 out of which the Canadian Experience Class accounts for 94% of the invitations at 76,653.

Express Entry

Canada ranks Express Entry candidates in the pool using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). About every 2 weeks, IRCC invites the top candidates in the pool to apply for permanent residence during rounds of invitations.
