1.IRCC promises to process Express Entry applications within 6 months

In the past few months, applicants for Express Entry had been waiting for an average of over 20 months to finalize their permanent residence applications. However, IRCC has recently announced that they will start processing the Express Entry applications within 6 months. The new announcement will take effect when IRCC opens the draw for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) again this July. 

IRCC has suspended the CEC invitations since September 2021. However, the race for the Canada Permanent Resident applications is finally back on track this early July. The main reason for IRCC to normalize the permanent residence process once again is to reach the Government of Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan for 2021-2023. Canada targets to welcome 411,000 new permanent residents in 2022 and 421,000 in 2023.
