IRCC Gradually Reducing Backlog

According to data recently issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), between July and September 2022, the backlog for all applications fell from 2.7 million to 2.6 million. The quantity of Express Entry applications waiting to be processed will also decrease as a result. IRCC is planning to process 80% of applications within our service standards.

There were 51,616 people in the Express Entry database as of the end of July. That number was down to 40,180 as of August 31—a drop of more than 10,000 applications in roughly six weeks.

The Next Express Entry Draw Prediction: November 9, 2022

The Next Express Entry Draw will be held on November 9, 2022. This will be the last Express Entry draw based on NOC 2016 version 1.3. After November 16, 2022, the new NOC 2021 version 1.0 system will be implemented.

We can predict the next Express Entry Draw with some simple calculations. Firstly, we need some important metrics:

  1. No. of candidates in the pool after the last draw
  2. No. of new candidates that may get added
  3. The total no. of candidates expected before the draw
  4. The expected draw size

No. of candidates in the pool after the last draw

The number of candidates added to the pool between October 26, 2022, and November 9, 2022. As there is no way to predict it exactly, let’s take the average number of candidates added to the pool in the last three draws.

In today’s Express Entry Latest Draw, a total of 4,250 invitations were issued, out of which 466 straight away went to the 601-Above CRS range. The rest of the 2,784 invitations were issued to the 501-600 range.

Please refer to the table below for the average no. of Candidates to be added before the Next Express Entry Draw.

How to increase your CRS Score?

If your CRS Score is stuck between 450-470 you can increase it using the following ways:

1. A valid full-time job offer

You can increase your CRS score if you have a job offer from a Canadian business. Your final CRS score will increase by up to 200 points if you receive a job offer from a Canadian employer.

2. Study Permit to PR

The Study Permit to PR pathway is a quick way to address the Low CRS issue. This lets you acquire relevant experience to apply for Express Entry inside Canada. Many applicants who are older than 35, 40, and 50 do not believe that a study permit is an ideal option for them. These applicants can reach out to us as we specialize in these types of cases.

5. French Language

To earn more CRS points, a French language proficiency test is required. The CRS points are offered for various levels of French and can boost your CRS score by up to 50 points, which will help you cross the cut-off score.

6. Bill C-19

Bill C-19, which will soon take effect, many applicants will be eligible to get an invitation even with a low CRS score. In other words, if your CRS Score is low, you should wait for occupation-specific draws where the Express Entry cut-off scores are irrelevant and you might still get invited.
