Express Entry in 2021

The year 2021 has been a bit different compared to past years in terms of Express Entry draw results. Earlier, there used to be all program draws all through, however, this year, the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has preferred opening the program-specific draws.

As a result, the candidates registered under Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) of EE system are still waiting for their ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canada PR visa. If you are also FSW category candidates, you may look to enhance your CRS score by earning bonus points or by obtaining the provincial nomination.
