Canada Invited 2,750 New Immigrants | Express Entry Draw August 2022: The latest express entry draw results are out. The recent draw was held on August 31 which invited 2,750 fresh applicants to Canada. As we all know that candidates are invited based on their CRS score. And the minimum CRS score requirement for the Express Entry Draw August 31 was 516 points. So, the candidates who were able to meet this requirement received an ITA. Once an ITA is received, the next step is to submit all the documents to immigration. So, this post will cover all the basic information and the list of documents required.
How does Express Entry work?
Express Entry consists of three streams in it through which people can apply for Canadian PR. Following are the three streams:
- The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FTWP)
- The Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
All three streams have their eligibility criteria. Candidates can check the eligibility criteria and if they can meet the requirements, they can apply for it by creating an online profile.
Once candidates made an online profile they will enter into the express entry pool. A Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is then used to give points to candidates based on several factors like age, qualification, or work experience. And the candidates who have high CRS scores have greater chances of getting an ITA.
