The international students' number invited to immigrate by Canada's Express Entry program declined dramatically in the previous year.
Data gathered by Refugees, Immigration, and Citizenship Canada reveals that both the proportion of Federal Express Entry ITAs and the number of ITAs announced to individuals who graduated from a University or public college in Canada was lesser in 2018 than in 2017.
Express Entry is the primary system that Canada practices to choose newcomers who are not refugees and not sponsored by members in their family. Express Entry comprises three programs: one for skilled workers, one for skilled tradespeople, and one for candidates who have work experience in Canada. It processes some appellants chosen by provinces. The Express Entry system is a points-based system in which applicants are given a score based on language abilities, education, relevant work experience, and the chance they will adjust to life in Canada. The best scoring candidates are invited to appeal for Canada PR.
The graduated foreign students' that are successful by Express Entry dropped by 25% in the year 2018, with only 22,897 invited to appeal in 2018 related to 30,650 in 2017.
The drop for previous students occurs as Canada has raised its quota of immigrants overall, and as the number of global students registered in Canada has grown. There are many theories about why fewer students were victorious in Express Entry in the last year 2018.
Federal statistics also reveal that a higher number of students were trying to obtain an ITA in 2017 than in 2018. The reports of Federal Express Entry do not provide sufficient detail regarding the international student's scores to determine why fewer are obtaining invitations.
