Express Entry draw# 165: Canada invites 4500 candidates for permanent residence
Federal Skill Worker draws are back in business. Canada conducted its fourth back to back FSW draw on October 14, 2020 and invited 4500 immigration candidates for PR on September 30, 2020.

Draw# 165 was an all program draw. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut off for this draw was the same as the previous FSW draw. The CRS cut off was 471.

IRCC applied the tie-breaking rule to this draw as well. The date and time were September 1, 2020, at 12:11:23 UTC, which means anyone meeting the cut-off would have received an invitation.

It is the first time since February 2020 that Canada has invited 4500 candidates. It looks like the trends have changed from CEC/PNP draws to FSW draws. Canada is looking to invite more candidates from the all program pool. 

With this draw, Canada has issued 82,850 ITA's in the current year.

How to write a Canadian Style Resume that will get you a job
Your resume is the primary tool to secure a job in Canada. Creating a Canadian style resume is by far the most crucial step for any new immigrant in Canada who is looking for a job.

One of the most common and easy to fix challenge as a job hunter in Canada is to work on your resume. Suppose your resume is not in the correct format and with the right keywords popping out. In that case, it will not attract the recruiter's attention.

Average employer skims through a resume in less than 30 seconds. It means you have less than 10 seconds to make your mark.

Canada PR options for Caregivers in Canada
Permanent residence for caregivers in Canada

Home Child Care Provider 2019 Pilot and Home Support Worker 2019 Pilot

You may be able to apply for permanent residence through the Home Child Care Provider Pilot or Home Support Worker Pilot if you:

meet the eligibility requirements, and


have a job offer to work in one of these occupations




Through this program, you’ll get an open work permit to come to Canada and work temporarily.

Important notes about this work permit:

is occupation-restricted (so you have to work in that specific occupation)


doesn’t need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)


lets you get the work experience you need to be eligible for permanent residence




As per Canada.ca website, if you recently worked as a home child care provider or support worker, your experience may count towards your eligibility for permanent residence.

Temporary Work Visa for caregivers

You may be able to secure work permit if you currently dont meet the requirements for PR as a Caregiver

Apply to extend your work permit

If you’re currently working in Canada as a caregiver, you may be eligible to extend your work permit through the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP).

Your employer will need to get a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) first.

In most cases, you can apply for a work permit to work in Canada temporarily as a caregiver through the TFWP if:

you’re in Canada and eligible to apply for a work permit from inside Canada


you’re outside Canada and your employer applied for an LMIA before June 18, 2019, or


you’ll be working in Quebec


Your employer will need to get a positive LMIA first.
