These ITAs have a chance to grab Canadian PR. Out of all, only 155,810 individuals gained permanent residency. The number of people who gained Canadian permanent residency also included principal applicants and the accompanying family members with them too. 

Did you know that the IRCC paused Express Entry invitations to apply on 20 September, 2021 for all Federal High Skilled immigration programs? This included immigrants coming from CEC, FSWP, FSTP. Therefore, IRCC did not invite any candidates from FSWP and FSTP in the year of 2021. On the other side, the CEC draws were put on hold too. For the rest of the year, only PNP draws were to take place on a bi-weekly basis.
