Should we expect the repetition of February 13?
Several media recently conducted interviews with Canadian Minister of Immigration Marco Mendicino. He answered in detail a series of questions on how Canada will meet its immigration targets. Mendicino said the 27,000 invitations issued via Express Entry are just the beginning. In addition, last week, Mendicino mentioned on his Twitter that it is the best time for international students and foreign workers in Canada to expect to become Canadian citizens. One of the effects of the February 13 Express Entry draw was a significant increase in new registrations in the pool. In-Canada candidates who earlier did not register due to lower CRS points understood that they might have a chance under the current unusual conditions. In order to reach the immigration targets this year, IRCC will have to conduct a few more similar draws in the Express Entry.
