An ideal candidate to get PR through the current express entry system would be between the age of 20-29, possessing a high level of education, and advanced proficiency in either English or French.
The Canadian government establishes its own annual quota for new immigrants. For 2019, Canada plans to accept 81,400 immigrants through Express Entry’s high-skilled worker pathways and an additional 61,000 through Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), many of which are aligned with Express Entry.
Approximately every two weeks, the Canadian government conducts an Express Entry draw, inviting the most competitive Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent resident status. In these draws, the federal government establishes a cut-off score, using the Comprehensive Ranking System. All candidates with scores higher than the cut-off will receive an official Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency.
