How This New Canadian Immigration Trend Could Benefit You
The Express Entry draw that took place on Feb 13, 2021, was at its historical low CRS points of 75. It invited 27,332 principal applicants to become permanent Canadian residents.
Although this draw was only for the applicants in the Canadian Experience Class, it shows the overall trend of the country’s immigration policy to welcome more skilled workers after COVID-19.
The mission is to achieve the immigration target of 401,000 new permanent residents in 2021 compared to only 184,000 new immigrants in 2020.
The Express Entry CRS points for Federal Skilled Workers was around 470 in 2020. The CRS points will likely drop further in 2021 to accommodate even more new permanent residents once the pandemic is under control.
Lower CRS points mean people who found it challenging to qualify for permanent residency in the past will now have a rare opportunity to be selected in 2021.
Consequently, people interested in coming to Canada via Express Entry should prepare all the required documents and create profiles in the system as soon as possible.
