Canada invites 27,332 immigration candidates through Express Entry Stream.

Canada invited 27,332 candidates to apply for permanent residence on 13 Feb 2021.

This goes to show Canada is committed to achieving its goal of welcoming over 400,000 immigrants this year.

Canada’s immigration minister, Marco Mendicino, recently said that IRCC will make efforts to achieve the ambitious immigration targets by transitioning more temporary residents to permanent residents during the pandemic.

Express Entry is not an immigration program itself, but an application management system for the three programs under the Federal High Skilled category: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
