These 779 candidates have two months to submit a complete application for permanent residence. This is the first draw from the Express Entry pool.

The System Works
This draw indicates that the new Express Entry system is working and that submitting a profile can truly lead to permanent residence.
Canada has prudently kept the first draw quite small. This is the first real test subjects for the system and help the government spot and fix potential glitches or problems.

Only the highest ranked candidates were invited to apply. Candidates in the Express Entry pool are ranked according to a Ranking System (CRS). The candidates selected had relatively high scores. The scores of invited applicants was so high (a CRS of 886 was required) that a candidate would have needed a provincial nomination or qualifying job offer in order to be invited to apply for permanent residence.

CIC has indicated its intention to conduct up to 25 draws this year and plans on meeting its immigration targets 285,000 under the 2015 immigration plan. Future draws are expected to occur more frequently and the government is expected to issue a much greater number of invitations to apply to a wider array of candidates in the Express Entry pool.

CIC expects that a significant proportion of invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence will be issued to people without job offers from Canadian employers. This is because the job matching facility for Canadian employers is unlikely to be in place for a number of months, yet the government of Canada aims to admit approximately 180,000 new immigrants in 2015 through the economic immigration programs
