Permanent Residency for Canada Becomes Easier to Attain for Some

Permanent Residency for Canada
Canada operates an Express Entry immigration system whereby qualifying candidates are placed in a pool, periodically those in the pool who achieve a certain threshold of points are issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency. Points are Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points given for a number of eligibility factors including education level, work experience, age, language skills and job offers. 

The latest draw on February 22 saw candidates issued an ITA based on the lowest threshold of points since the Express Entry draws began. Candidates with 441 or more CRS points received an ITA and nearly 4000 were invited. In November 2016 the points threshold was nearly 800 points. The latest low threshold meant that candidates did not necessarily need the additional points a job offer from a Canadian employer provides.

Express Entry candidates must be eligible for one of Canada’s federal economic immigration programs these include the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FTSC) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) means the candidate can then subject an application for permanent residency in Canada for themselves and their accompanying family. The number of ITA’s issued has risen steadily from 559 in November 2016 to 3611 on the 22 February 2017 and a total of 17,019 ITA’s have been issued in 2017 so far.

One of the fastest ways to gain a valuable 600 points for the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP’s) for the 10 states of Canada. Individuals looking to settle in a chosen province with a skillset the province is in need of having an opportunity to speed up their residency application by gaining a PNP nomination. The extra 600 points mean an excellent chance of being invited to apply on the next round draw once in the pool.
