Canada held its first express entry PNP draw of 2022 on 5th January, in which they have invited a total of 392 aspirants to apply for the Canada PR. Only Provincial Nomine Program (PNP) candidates got an invitation by IRCC in this draw.
The PNP program targets candidates with the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Every aspirant needs a minimum of 808 points in this PNP draw to get invited. 600 points automatically added to the score of PNP aspirants when they got their nomination; that is why the score is higher as compared to other invitations rounds. Hence, they only need 208 points before the nomination to be qualified for receiving the invitation to apply for permanent residency in Canada.
Citizenship, immigration, & Refugee (IRCC) are conducting the PNP draws from September 2021. They are continually concentrating on aspirants of PNP because immigration officers want to trim down the backlog at least half before issuing invitations for the aspirants from other programs.
Essential changes in the Express Entry in 2022
Moreover, in the recent mandate letter to Sean Fraser, the immigration minister, Premier Justin Trudeau, asked to expand PR streams for temporary foreign workers and international students through the Express Entry system.
The Government of Canada is planning to make significant changes to the Express Entry system by 2022. They have proposed in the 2021 budget to provide further flexibility to the immigration minister to target those aspirants who meet their labor requirements. Moreover, Express Entry will witness so many significant changes when the (TEER) Training, Education, Experience & Responsibilities come into effect by 2022 that will replace the current list of NOC and focus on candidates’ work experience instead of skill levels.
