Category-Specific Draws

These candidates are capable of submitting their application for Canadian immigration. It is a fact that “category-specific draws” are not new to the Express Entry system. After the launch of Express Entry system in 2015, Canadian government managed to conduct only two such draws, where specific candidates received their exclusive invitations.

The February 20, 2015, draw invited candidates of Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Whereas, November 30, 2016, draw invited those candidates, who applied for provincial nomination certificate. Nevertheless, this happened for the first time that FSTC candidates received ITAs on a specific basis. Moreover, two different minimum CRS score requirements were also observed.

Receiving an ITA Through Express Entry Draw

With a view to receiving an ITA through Express Entry draw, each individual must fulfill certain eligibility criterion of any one of these three immigration programs.

·         The Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC)

·         Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Once the candidate enters the pool, he/she receive a CRS score depending on certain factors such as civil education, work, language ability, status information, experience and so on. This particular score assigns them a specific ranking in their pool. The candidates with highest-ranking receive ITAs during periodic draws, conducted by IRCC. After receiving ITAs, these candidates can submit an application for obtaining Canadian immigration.
