Express Entry applications to be handled within 6 months now

Most new Express Entry applications will be processed in six months, according to Canada’s immigration service.

Now it is confirmed by the Canada immigration department that the Express Entry applications will be processed within 6 months from now on. After the pandemic hit the world, Canada stopped its immigration programs in December 2020.  But IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) recently confirmed that after almost 20 months, Canada is opening its Express Entry program in July 2022 again. What is even better is that the applicants don’t have to wait much longer now, as the application processing time will be reduced to 6 months now.

IRCC will resume the Express Entry invitation in Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trader Program (FSTP), and Canada Experience Class (CEC), in early July. The early July nomination of Express Entry is significant for various reasons as Express Entry is the main pathway for most of the immigrants. Resuming the applications for Express Entry will fulfill the desire of hundreds of thousands of skilled workers who want to work, live, and get their Permanent Residency in Canada.

Employers in Canada will be pleased to learn that draws have resumed. According to Statistics, Canada has over 800,000 job openings and the lowest unemployment rate in history. To alleviate labor shortages, employers require more immigrant talent. The fact that Express Entry is back to normal and that new applications will be processed within six months implies that employers will soon have more access to talent, which will be critical to Canada’s post-pandemic economic recovery.

What is the Express Entry program?

Canada has a vast area with 10 provinces and 3 territories. With the increase of more and more job opportunities, the Canadian government introduced programs for the people who want to immigrate to Canada and work there. There are mainly two programs for Canadian immigration:

  • Express Entry
  • Provincial Nominee Program(PNP)

Express Entry

It is the very first immigration program initiated by Canada in 2015 for the applicants who want to work as skilled workers. It is often called the golden pathway to Canada as most of the immigrants settled in Canada are from this program.

There are three major programs under the Express Entry program:

  • Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSWP): the program is for skilled workers with minimum work experience
  • Federal Skilled Trader Program (FSTP): the program is for the workers who have an experience in the trade with suitable qualifications.
  • Canada Experience Class (CEC): this is the program for the workers who are having a past working experience in Canada.
