Canada: Latest Express Entry Selection Shows Ongoing Flexibility

editorial-pro-link-global-immigration-dispatch-canada-mozambique-and-thailand_8212_t12Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is conducting its 32nd Express Entry draw through tomorrow.

  • IRCC will be issuing 1,018 invitations to those who have submitted an Expression of Interest to apply for permanent residence.
  • The minimum qualifying score for this draw is 468.

The frequency and size of Express Entry draws are at the discretion of IRCC.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

While an LMIA or PN approval will guarantee an employee’s selection and invitation for permanent residence, such documents are not required in all cases. This draw once again demonstrates that employees without LMIA or PN approvals continue to be selected in the Express Entry draw.
