The first half of 2019 saw the most invitations in the entire history of Canada’s Express Entry system, with 41,800 candidates selected.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held 13 draws during those six months, issuing 41,800 invitations.

The Express Entry system is Canada’s main source of recruiting foreign skilled workers. It manages several streams, such as Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates who wish to be eligible for programs and draws must create a profile in the Express Entry, where they are ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which awards points based on various factors such as language skills and educational background.

Additional points are awarded to candidates with a provincial nomination, job offer, or past education in Canada. High-ranked candidates can be invited to apply for permanent residence.

A job offer is not mandatory for being selected under the Express Entry pool.
