Regarded to be the mainstay of Canadian immigration, Canada’s Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for the 3 main economic immigration programs of the federal government of Canada.

What are the programs managed through the Express Entry System?
The Federal Skilled Worker Program [FSWP] For skilled workers with foreign work experience intending to immigrate to Canada permanently.
The Federal Skilled Trades Program [FSTP] For skilled workers that intend taking up Canada PR based on being qualified in a skilled trade.
The Canadian Experience Class [CEC] For skilled workers that have Canadian work experience and want to take up Canadian permanent residence.

With around 80 immigration pathways, the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] of Canada has various ‘streams’ or pathways aligned with the federal Express Entry system.

According to the new figures by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC], the processing of 57,365 permanent resident applications was finalized by IRCC from January to October 2020.

Of these, around 40% were processed through the FSWP.

Canada PR applications finalized by IRCC [January to October 2020]
Program processed through Applications processed
FSWP 22,875
CEC 21,440
Express Entry-aligned streams of the PNP 12,490
FSTP 560
Total applications processed by IRCC 57,365

A majority of the cases finalized by IRCC between January and October 2020 had been submitted prior to the imposition of travel restrictions by the Canadian government on March 18, 2020.

These latest figures by IRCC do not reflect the practices adopted by IRCC between March and August this year wherein program-specific Express Entry draws were held by IRCC, alternating between the PNP and CEC. The next year’s data might show the increase of permanent resident admissions through the PNP and CEC.

On March 12, 2020, Canada had announced the 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan. While the initially set target – that of welcoming 341,000 in 2020 – could not be met due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the shortfall has nonetheless been adjusted by Canada.

In the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan announced on October 30, 2020, Canada has laid down that over 4 lakh immigrants are to be welcomed annually by Canada.

With a welcoming stance towards immigrants in general and a streamlined immigration process, Canada remains the top choice for any immigrant exploring options for migrate overseas with family.
