Canada Immigration to grant citizenship to 3,00,000 people this fiscal year

 

CIC News has received an internal IRCC memo outlining goals for the number of new citizens that Canada will welcome for the fiscal year 2022-2023. The memo, which was written for a senior official by the Operations, Planning and Performance division of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), recommends those IRCC process 285,000 decisions and 300,000 new citizens by March 31, 2023. A decision is a review of an application that is then accepted, denied, or marked as incomplete. According to the citizenship goal, 300,000 eligible applicants must take the oath of citizenship, either in person or via virtual.

This is a significant increase over the fiscal year 2021-2022, and it even surpasses the pre-pandemic targets of 2019-2020, when 253,000 citizenship applications were processed.

The population projections for the second quarter (April to June) of 2022 were just released by Statistics Canada (StatCan). The study included a raw estimate of population growth as well as information about the sizeable impact that immigration had on Canada's population growth during this time.

Q2 population estimates released by StatsCan

Overall, there are around one million open positions in Canada, which is an all-time high rate of 5.7%. The number of open positions that correspond to the overall labour demand is used to compute vacancies.

The present record-high number of job openings is the result of the rise in labour demand outpacing growth in payroll employment since the first quarter of 2020

Factors that may affect Express Entry CRS scores

Canada has resumed all-program Express Entry draws on July 6. Since then, the number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) issued in each draw has grown by 250 each week, causing the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score needed things to go down.

That being said, score cut-offs are still quite high. The latest Express Entry draw needed candidates to have at least a score of 533. In order to get a score this high, candidates would need to be young, highly educated with work experience, and perhaps even bilingual in order to get an ITA.

It usually follows that the more Express Entry candidates IRCC Canada (IRCC) invites, the lower the CRS cut-off will be. However, ther

Express Entry: All-program draws set to resume July 6 confirms Immigration Minister

Immigration Minister Mr. Sean Fraser confirmed that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is on track to normalize Express Entry draws in early July. IRCC made the commitment in April, and also pledged to get the Express Entry TAT time back to six months when the all-program draws resume.

IRCC paused Express Entry invitations to apply (ITA) for permanent residence to Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) candidates in December 2020 amid the pandemic. It did the same for Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates in September 2021.

Preceding to the pandemic, IRCC usually considered all candidates in its bi-weekly Express Entry draws. This meant IRCC would invite the candidates with the highest Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores, irrespective of their program of eligibility.
