How to Prepare for the Next CEC and FSW Draw in July 2022

By Ella Bergquist May 6, 2022 (Updated June 27, 2022) 2 min. read

In early July 2022, Express Entry drawings for Federal Skilled Worker Program and Canadian Experience Class candidates will restart.

On April 22, Canadian Immigration Minister Sean Fraser made the announcement. With drawings commencing in July, IRCC should have 14 draws by the end of the year if they stick to their current schedule of one every two weeks. This means that each drawing should have an average of 3,992 Invitations to Apply. If these figures are correct, it will take more than four draws to eliminate individuals with a 481 or higher score. Applicants, on the other hand, can enter the Express Entry system at any moment.

What to Expect Before Express Entry Draws Resume

There are several actions we suggest taking immediately to prepare for the CEC and FSW draws coming in July 2022.

Submitting Express Entry Profile

Though July may seem far away, there are numerous compelling reasons to submit your profile to the Express Entry pool now. It will take time to prepare and submit your Express Entry profile.

You can enter the Express Entry pool sooner if you start planning and gathering your documentation as soon as possible. You can require information on travel papers, language exams, educational credential assessment reports, and so forth.

You’ll be more likely to have your documentation in place by July and obtain an Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residence (PR) when the drawings commence in July if you start the process now.

Resubmitting Express Entry Profile

If you are already in the Express Entry pool awaiting the Canadian Experience Class and Federal Skilled Worker draws, some immigration professionals are suggesting to re-apply.

If your profile has changed in any way, you will want to reapply with all the updated information.

Work on Improving Your CRS Score

Given that the immigration objective for Federal High Skilled Program applicants in 2022 has been halved, candidates should consider measures to improve their Comprehensive Rankings System score, as well as other options for immigrating to Canada.

There are several ways to improve your CRS score such as:

Language

Work Experience

Studying in Canada

Education

PNP

Job Offer

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.
