IRCC has invited record 8,400 candidates in September 2020 The month of September has been incredible for the Express Entry System of Canada. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued record 8,400 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residency in September 2020. It is the highest number of invitations issued in a month by express entry, this year, and an incredible sign for the upcoming EE draws.

Record number of Invitations in one month

Although, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) also invited 11,150 candidates in the month of January 2019, however, these invitations were issued in three different draws. However, this time around, Canadian government has issued this much invitations in just two draws and there is still more than a week to go in this month.

Now, after this current draw, Canadian government or IRCC has issued total 74,100 invitations in total 30 Express Entry draws opened this year. This too is the highest number of invitations issued at this point of the year.

What is the prediction for upcoming express entry draws?

Well, it becomes difficult to make prediction when entity like express entry is such volatile in terms of issuing invitations or inviting candidates to apply for Canada PR visa.

However, considering the annual target of Express entry system, i.e. 91,800, the IRCC will still issue 17,700 more invitations this year and hence, one gets the impression that we may see few more all program express entry draws in the next few months with an increased number of invitations. Moreover, as per Canada's multiyear immigration plan, it plans to invite over one million permanent residents by 2022.

This is an ideal time to immigrate to Canada, as IRCC has resumed its all program draws and hence, inviting the candidates under FSW and rest of the categories on merit. Moreover, Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) of Canada are also active to nominate the candidates for Canadian permanent residency visa.
