Express Entry Draw: February 13, 2021

express entry draw

In a historic Express Entry draw held on Saturday, February 13, the Canadian Government invited 27,332 candidates to apply for permanent residence in Canada. We call this draw a historic one because never in the history of Express Entry so many people have been invited to apply at once. Usually, the number is limited at 3,000 – 5,000.

This draw was held only for candidates in the Canadian Experience Class, and the CRS score required was also historically low – only 75 points! This is truly unprecedented, and it proves again how committed Canada is to inviting up to 400,000 immigrants by the end of 2021!

Before that draw, on February 10, 2021, Canada held an Express Entry draw only for the candidates who have received a Provincial Nomination. Candidates with a score of at least 720 points were issued invitation to apply for permanent residence. 654 candidates received the invitations.

There have not been all-program Express Entry draws so far in 2021. All the draws in 2021 were either for provincial nominee candidates or candidates in the Canadian Experience Class.

About Express Entry

Express Entry is an incredibly fast and efficient system of managing applications for Canadian permanent residence put in place by the Canadian Government in 2015. It is used to manage three programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class, as well as some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Under the terms of Express Entry, applicants provide information about their skills, education, language ability, work experience and some details online through a very user-friendly interface.

Once you complete your Express Entry profile, the system automatically assesses your rank in the Express Entry pool, using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System, and tells you how many points you have.

The points are awarded for skills, education, language ability, work experience and other factors. Additional points can be awarded for Canadian degrees, diplomas and certificates, a valid job offer and a nomination from a province or a territory. You immediately see how many points you have.
