Express Entry Program in 2019:

The Express Entry Program since its launch in 2015, has continuously been updated to introduce timely improvements and enhancements. It has been acknowledged as one of the fairest and unbiased immigration system of the world.

Designed to direct the Canadian economy towards growth and assist the applicants with the best pay scale and highest living standards, this program has proven to be beneficial for the Canadian nation as well as the international applicants.

As the first step, all candidates aspiring to emigrate to Canada and permanently settle there are required to create their online Express Entry Profiles.

In this profile, they are asked to provide their complete professional and personal details for the record of the Canadian government. It is vital to enter the correct details as your application can later be cancelled in the absence of necessary documents to support your profile data.

Express Entry Draw in 2019:

The applicants of the Express Entry Program are then awarded points based on their merit and profile details like – education, work experience, age, gender, skill set, language proficiency, etc.

The comprehensive ranking system (CRS) is used to calculate the score for each candidate. This score is commonly referred to as the CRS score and is of great importance in the Express Entry Program.

All applicants are ranked in descending order of their CRS scores. Only the highest scoring candidates are shortlisted and allowed to enter the Express Entry Pool of candidates eligible to immigrate to Canada.

Selected candidates from this pool are then sent the ITA i.e. the Invitation to Apply for permanent residency of Canada.

CRS Draw Prediction for 2019

Though IRCC receives thousands of applications each week from candidates who are willing to emigrate to Canada, it also has an ever-growing demand of skilled professionals to aid in the growth and development of the national and local economy of Canada.

As a result, the Canadian immigration authorities are constantly focusing on simplifying the process to offer a seamless immigration process. The draws are held once every 15 days or even earlier to ensure more and more experienced and worthy candidates are offered the chance to move to Canada permanently.

The Express Entry Program rules have been updated to offer additional points to candidates who have a sibling or close family member already residing in Canada. A special benefit in terms of additional points is also offered to aspirants who can speak, write, read and listen to the French language.

In the most recent draw of 2019, the minimum CRS score requirement has dropped to 438 and is expected to stay the same if not drop down further more. This is because, in 2019, Canada has an even higher demand for trained and skilled people.

Conclusion:

IRCC has recently sent the ITA to a record-breaking 3350 number of applicants from the Express Entry pool. This number is also meant to rise in the consecutive draws this year for Canada to meet its requirements of educated and experienced candidates.
