The Federal EE System is a highly proficient point-based immigration program designed to assess the eligibility of registered applicants based on six selection factors such as age, education, language proficiency, work experience, adaptability and arranged employment. The intermittent EE draws issue Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to the candidates with the top CRS scores. The constant drop in the CRS score cut-off in recent draws shows that more candidates have an opportunity to get an ITA and apply for Canadian PR visa.

However, meeting the eligibility requirements and acquiring a high CRS score are key to receive an ITA for Canadian PR visa. The EE system is the swiftest and most efficient pathway to get PR in Canada. According to the IRCC (Immigration Refugees, and Citizenship Canada), the whole Canada PR application process is normally completed within six months, once they receive the PR application and documents.

If you aspire to apply for Permanent Residency in Canada through the federal Express Entry System or the Canadian PNP, this year is offering the best opportunity to do so. Canada will invite 465,000 new permanent residents this year and most of them will be invited through skilled migration programs, such as EE system and Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) of Canada. With the regular drop in CRS score requirement, the prospects of obtaining an ITA and eventually becoming a permanent resident of Canada are higher than ever before.
