Since December 2020, Canada hasn’t held an Express Entry draw for Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) applicants, and since September 2021 for Canadian Experience Class (CEC) applicants to obtain permanent residence. Immigration Minister Sean Fraser previously said draws for these candidates would resume in the near term. No date has been released publicly.Express Entry candidates in Canada, who do not have a provincial nomination might be forced to apply for a new work permit, leave their jobs or even the country.
Normally, when Express Entry candidates apply for permanent residence, they become eligible to get a Bridging Open Work Permit (BOWP) which allows them to keep working in Canada while their application is in processing. Express Entry candidates who have applied for permanent residency outside of Canada could be faced with expiring language test results, meaning they would have to take another language test in order to maintain their eligibility.
Express Entry is the application management system for three Canadian immigration programs: the Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program. PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool have already qualified for one of these programs. Express Entry uses a points-based system, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), to rank candidates’ profiles. The top-scoring candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA), and can then apply for permanent residency.
