Express entry System and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) are two of the most popular immigration programs of Canada to apply for and acquire the Canadian Permanent Residency (PR).
These two programs will obviously be the key pathways to settle in Canada in 2021. The Express entry system is point based and hence, the candidates with top Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score only get the ITA (Invitation to Apply) to apply for Canadian PR visa from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
However, the CRS score requirement from IRCC has been above 470 in all program draws from IRCC. Considering the same, the candidates with relatively low express entry will have to get an alternate option ready if they want to immigrate to Canada in 2021 on Permanent Residence (PR) visa.
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) – key pathway to get Canada PR in 2021
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) will be a perfect alternate option to move to Canada in 2021. Almost every Canadian province has a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which invite, assess and nominate the skilled worker candidates for Canadian Permanent Residence (PR).
So, which are the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), you should target in 2021.
PNPs to target in 2021
Few PNPs invite the candidate even with low point’s requirement; hence, you must target them, if you have plans to get PR in Canada next year. Some of these popular Canadian PNPs are:
Ontario invite the candidate with relatively low CRS score compared to federal EE system. In 2020, Ontario invited candidates with CRS Score ranging from 358-477.
Alberta has the PNP that invites the candidates with lowest CRS point’s requirement. Last year, Alberta PNP- Express entry stream invited candidates with CRS points as low as just 300 points only.

The aspirants of Canadian permanent residency often look to collect as much as the information they can in order to apply with pinpoint accuracy. Although, Canada has been quite lenient on the Immigration process and immigrants, however, the frequently changing immigration rules and procedures often confuse the applicants also.
Hence, if you are applying PR in Canada, you must obtain as much as information you can well in advance. Moreover, if you take services from a genuine and registered Canadian Visa Consultant, most of your headache of confirming process details will get reduced. Difference between COPR and Canada PR is one among the key queries of the applicants. Let’s find out the details to clear all the confusion in this regard.
COPR Vs Canada PR
Well, first of all, both these are not the same. One of these documents or status you get upon reaching Canada, while the other you get in your home country only.
Canadian Permanent Residency (PR)
Canadian PR is the status you get when you are physically present in Canada and known as a ‘Landed Immigrant’.This is the final stage of your Canadian PR application process when you actually get the PR Status upon landing in Canada. You cannot get Canadian permanent residency status without being physically present in Canada.
What is a Canadian PR status?
The Canadian PR status allows you to live, work or study in any part of Canada. Also, you get social benefits, health coverage, etc. However, it comes with some restrictions. As long as you stay in Canada for 2 years in every 5-years period, you can sustain your Canadian PR status. In case you don’t fulfil this minimum stay requirement, your PR status expires.
The Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) is basically your one-time entry visa. This is not permanent residency allocated to you by the Canadian government or Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Once you land in Canada using the single entry visa, you receive your permanent residency. However, in case, you do not enter Canada within visa date (first entry date on your PR visa stamp), your application expires and you will not get Canada PR and hence, lose your Canadian visa status. In this case, you need to reapply to get the status back.
If you did not enter Canada before the first entry date on your PR visa stamp, then you have lost your Canadian visa status. You need to reapply again to get the status back. If registering online profile (in Express Entry or PNP etc. program) is the first step of your Canadian PR process, then Landing in the maple leaf country is the final step of obtaining the Canadian PR application process. Hope, now you must have understood the difference of Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and Permanent Resident Visa.

The paradigm of Immigration has changed a lot from what it was say 10-15 years back. If you have plans for immigration to Canada, you first understand new immigration scenario and avoid the common mistakes to come out as a winner of Visa approval at the end of the day. Find below the list of things, which you must avoid as a Canadian visa applicant.
Jolted by the tightening immigration rules and guidelines in USA and UK, etc. countries, the immigration aspirants usually make a general opinion that immigration and permanent residency has now become extremely difficult to get in overseas countries. However, it is absolutely untrue about Canada, which it now has the most lenient immigration rules and guidelines.
Some of the aspirants think that the permanent residency process takes years to complete and hence, they hesitate to enter in the same considering the consequences and scenarios in future. In the case of Canada, you can get PR visa approval as early as within 6 months’ period. On the other end, there are some applicants who think it’s just the process of a week or two, which is also a misconception.
This is again absolutely wrong thinking on the part of a few people who think that they don’t need to prepare documents in advance, as they have got all educational and experience documents intact already. Well, the truth is you must prepare all your documents well before actually applying as you need some documents additional to what you have right now.
For instance, Canadian government wants Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report from an approved institution to verify your qualification obtained in your home country. Moreover, to verify your English language proficiency, you need to produce IELTS test with a required level of proficiency, i.e. Minimum CLB 7.
Applicants often think that there must be one process to get Canada PR, and hence, it’s the matter of applying in the same. So selection of the best program based on their profile is out of the question, which is not true at all. The Canadian government has designed multiple pathways to allocate permanent residency to the deserving applicants.
Many applicants despite applying for Canadian PR visa for the first time, think that they don’t need any consultant and they can fill the online form etc. to obtain the Canada PR at the end. However, a genuine and registered Canadian visa Consultancy plays a crucial role in helping the applicants in various aspects of immigration and visa process, i.e. choosing right immigration program to apply, documentation assistance, filing visa application accurately, following up the application with visa office, etc.
In case, you are planning to apply for permanent residency in Canada, you may get in touch with Visas Avenue Immigration- a leading and registered Canadian Immigration Consultancy firm in India. The VA team has got the outstanding record for obtaining Canada PR visa approvals for its clients.

However, this year, the applicants below 441 mark are waiting for their ITA (Invitation to Apply) since the beginning of the year. So, what are the options you have if you are one among the applicants in the waiting list?

If you are an applicant who has CRS score between 400 and 440, you must explore the alternate options to obtain the permanent residency in Canada. You have two key options basically as Canada PR aspirant in Queue.
Let’s understand the both separately.
Every Canadian province has a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The PNPs nominate the applicants in express entry and direct applicants for permanent residency in Canada. The Express Entry aligned stream in a PNP allocate 600 additional CRS points to the registered applicants in the express entry if they apply and selected in that express entry aligned stream. The additional CRS points make certain that you get Invitation to Apply for Canada PR in the next EE draw.
You can enhance your CRS score by reappearing in the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test for English proficiency to increase your points for language factor. You can also add the credentials of your spouse (if applicable), which will provide you with some extra CRS points in the express entry.

If you are a skilled professional, planning to move to Canada on skilled permanent residence visa, you need to have good profile score as well. Canada is one among those countries which follow a point based system for allowing skilled immigrants in the country as permanent residents. Hence, your point score plays a key role in obtaining the PR visa from the Canadian government. Let’s understand the Canada PR process in terms of Express Entry System- the most popular point-based immigration system of Canada.
Canada PR Process 2018
Canadian permanent residency (PR) process can be divided in two parts. As a skilled PR applicant, your first step would be to create a profile in Express Entry system or any other PR program and subsequently, get selected in Express Entry pool, based on your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score. The IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) will select the top ranking profiles (candidates with top CRS scores) from express entry pool through fortnightly draws, and invite them to apply for Canada PR visa within 90 days.
Now, the second step is to submit complete Canada PR application along with the required documents. The immigration office will assess and verify the application and documents and if all found correct, PR approval will be issued in the name of the applicant. Hence, if your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) decides, whether or not you will reach the 2nd stage of the process.
What is Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS)?
Comprehensive Ranking System or CRS is a point system that evaluates the eligibility and suitability of a PR visa applicant based on his total points scored for age, education, work experience, Language ability (English or French), etc.
Higher the CRS score, greater are your chances of obtaining ITA (Invitation to apply) for Canada PR visa from IRCC. IRCC will launch a draw every fortnight (15 days) to select top ranking profiles from express entry pool. For every draw, it announces cut off marks (i.e. CRS score requirement). The applicants who achieve the cut off marks get the ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canada PR Visa.
How many CRS Points are enough to get the invitation from IRCC?
The qualifying marks criteria changes in every draw, so there is no fixed pattern as to what will the qualifying marks or CRS score requirement in the next express entry draw. Let’s try to get an idea from the latest EE draw occurred on April 11, 2018. In the 7th express entry draw of the year occurred recently, IRCC demanded 444 CRS points.
Hence, as per the latest EE draw trend, if you have the CRS score around this mark, you stand the strong chance of acquiring approval for Canada PR from IRCC.

Canadian government plans to invite and welcome about one million immigrants in next three years. The fact has been revealed in the Multi-year immigration plan tabled by Canadian federal government. About one million people expected to enter Canada by 2020, under Economic immigration program, family class immigration, and refugees.
As per the multi-year plan, 310,000 immigrants are likely to be invited in 2018, and the number may further rise to 330,000 in 2019 and subsequently, 340,000 in 2020. The target for every immigration category has been decided and presented to the house in common.
Canada to significantly increase immigration year on year
While speaking to a media channel Canadian Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said that in next three years, Canada immigration will help meet the skill shortage and demographic challenges in the country. As per him, about 5 million Canadians are going to retire by 2035, and hence, new immigrants coming to Canada in next few years will play a vital role in Canadian economy and society.
Canadian Immigration Plan Year by Year
Ratio of Working Age people has dropped drastically over the last few decades
As per Hussen, in 1971, Canada had 6.6 working-age people per retiree, however, by 2012 this ration dropped to 4.2 to 1 and as per the projections, this ratio will further drop to be around 2 to 1 percent by 2036. Hence, to deal with this challenge, the country needs to gradually increase the annual immigration in the country.

He further confirmed that the government had round of discussions and consultations with different provinces and other associated entities and every province has confirmed this fact that they need immigrants to deal with the skill shortage and demographic challenges. Few months back, Government’s own advisory council suggested increasing the immigration level to 450,000 newcomers annually by 2021.
Government is also emphasizing Integration and Settlement program
As per Ahmed Hussen, the government is not only focused on allowing immigrants in the country but also looking to enhance the integration and settlement program in the country, to help these immigrants established and settle quickly in the society so that they can contribute back to Canadian economy and society.
As per him, Canada is the world leader in terms of integration program, and many countries of the world are learning from our successful integration and settlement program. He further confirmed that the government would not have increased the immigration level in the country if they were not confident enough to provide essential support and settlement facilities to the new immigrants coming to Canada.

The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have kept the cutoff score or CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) requirement more or less stable in the last few Express Entry draws. The good news for the Canada PR applicants is that the qualifying marks are stable at the low mark or score.
Hence, a big question is making all the express entry applicants restless, i.e. will it remain the same, i.e. stable in the upcoming draw as well. Let’s explore the possibilities of the same.
Stable Express Entry Qualifying marks
If you take a look at last few draws of federal express entry system, you will find that the cutoff score or CRS score requirement from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has remained more or less stable. In the 17th express entry draw (launched on 12th July), CRS Score requirement form IRCC was 440 points. In the very next draw, it was marginally increased by one point to become 441 points.
EE Draw Results in last Five Draws
|Draw No. this year||Draw Date||No. of Invitations||CRS sore requirement|
In the very next draw, the i.e. 19th draw of express entry launched on August 9, 2017, qualifying marks dropped to 433 CRS points from IRCC. Since then, the CRS score requirement from IRCC is hovering around this mark only. In the last draw of express entry (launched on September 6, 2017), the cutoff score announced by the IRCC was 435 points or more. Hence, overall, the qualifying marks have remained stable most of the time in last few draws.
Stable CRS Score Requirement in Last few EE Draws
Is qualifying Marks are Being Driven by Number of Invitations
If you closely look at the Number of invited Candidates for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) via last few draw of Express Entry, you will find a trend going on. In last 5 draws of express entry system, the IRCC have kept the number of invitations to in and around 3,000 Mark. The number of invited applicants in last 5 draws are 3,202, 3,264, 2,991, 3,035, and, 2,772.
Hence, it is evident that IRCC has set a target to invite about 3,000 candidates to vide every express entry draw. And the qualifying marks are being set and announced keeping in mind the number of applicants to be invited per draw. This is the reason that we have not seen any big deviation in the cut-off marks as of now.
Good time to apply for Canada PR Visa?
It’s the perfect time to apply for Canadian PR visa via federal express entry system. Since the launch of Express Entry system in January 2015, rarely we have seen qualifying marks or CRS score requirement from IRCC stable around 430 Mark. It used to remain close to 500 marks most of the time in the last couple of years.
Hence, it’s the right time to apply for express entry and get invited, when the qualifying marks are relatively low.
