  • Express Entry Q1 2020: Big first quarter despite coronavirus

    There were more Express Entry candidates invited to apply for permanent residence in the first quarter of 2020 than there were in the first quarters of the two previous years.

    Though coronavirus is changing the Canadian immigration landscape, the year started off looking like it would be a big year for Express Entry. The 2020-2022 Levels Plan was announced less than a week before Canada began implementing coronavirus prevention measures. Canada’s target for this year was set at 341,000 new immigrants, of those 91,800 were set to be Federal High Skilled workers and 67,800 would be invited through provincial nominee programs.

    Express Entry draws were consistently held every two weeks since the first draw of the year on January 8. The pattern was broken after Canada implemented special measures to slow the spread of coronavirus. The Express Entry draws following that announcement were held on March 18, and March 23. Between these two draws only provincial nominees and those in the Canadian Experience Class immigration program were invited.
