Trades Candidates Selected in the Express Entry Draw held on 16th October

It was the second program-specific raw of 2019. There were 500 Federal Skilled Trades class workers invited by the Government of Canada. The selected applicants were those whose Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score was 357.

To be selected in this category the applicants had to prove the following:

  • Foreign nations with qualification for the trade
  • They should have adequate work experience
  • They should have an eligible offer letter

The Federal Skilled Trades program is the subcategory of the Express Entry program. In the earlier Express Entry Draw, all the three subcategories were considered. But this was a rare Express entry draw in which only one subcategory was considered for the PR status of Canada. The CRS score required in this draw was 357 points, which was 81 points less than the CRS score needed for the last draw, which was 438 points.

PEI Selected 158 candidates in Express Entry, Labor Impact and Business Impact

The Expression of interest (EOI) has its point grid, and the candidates who secure the highest points are selected in the monthly draws.  In the latest draw, there were 146 candidates chosen in the express entry and labor impact category. There were 12 invitations through business impact.  The labor impact category is for candidates who have a valid job offer letter and support from a PEI employer.

The subcategories of Labor impact are:

  • Skilled worker
  • Critical worker
  • International graduate

With this, the total number of applications issued by PEI has reached 1177 in 2019.
