Can Canada Exceed its Express Entry target for 2020 to invite 100,000 Candidates?

By Rajneesh Kumar Posted 27, Oct 2020

Can Canada Exceed its Express Entry target for 2020 to invite 100,000 Candidates? The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued record 82,850 ITAs (Invitations to Apply) for Permanent Residency in Canada this year. This is a new record for the express entry invitations at this time of the year.

Hence, such pattern of EE draws has given a new thought and hope to the experts and candidates with regard to IRCC crossing its pre-planned target and achieving a new milestone. Let us find out the probabilities and possibilities regarding the same.

Can Express Entry touch the new milestone of 100,000 invitations?

The IRCC has set a target of 91,800 invitations for the year 2020. However, we are in the month of October and IRCC has already cross the mark of 80,000 and invited whooping 82,850 candidates this year to apply for PR Visa.

So keeping in mind the IRCC's pattern of two Express entry draws per month, we can expect 5 more draws by the end of this year. Moreover, if it maintains the trend of inviting 4,000 or more invitations per draw, we are looking at 20,000 more invitations this year.

Number of Invitations in last 4 Express Entry Draw

In such case, the number of total invitations will be approximately 102,500 (82,500+20,000). And if it happens, it will be unprecedented and thoroughly amazing. The candidates registered in the Federal EE system must be expecting something like that. This possibility cannot be ruled out considering the pattern of issued ITAs in last four EE draws.

Expected Schedule of upcoming EE draws

Hence, we will have to closely monitor the next couple of express entry draws, as these two draws will possibly clear the blurred picture and give us more ideas, as to what going to happen by the end of this year. The possible schedule of upcoming express entry draws (considering fortnightly draw pattern by IRCC) will be on October 28, November 11, November 25, December 9, and December 23.

If your CRS score in EE System is low, you can explore the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Pathway to add 600 extra CRS points in your account and obtain the ITA for Canada PR visa from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) based on the same.
