Hi guys!!
Sorry for the question, but I'm new here. The target for new permanent resident admissions through the three federal high-skilled programs is slated to rise to 85,800 this year and 88,800 in 2021. On the other hand, the target for PNPs for 2020 is around 68,500.
But what i know is that PNPs are part of every express entry draw (600+ candidates in the pool). so if you add these two numbers, you'll have 157,300 for 2020. how would IRCC reach this target with the current 3400 invitation/draw trend? Thanks
Any thoughts on this guys ??!

Hi,

I am not sure of the entire process, but the 157,300 you said is not even half of Canada's immigration target for 2020

The IRCC's immigration targets for each year are well above 330,000(2019 target). For 2020 the target is actually 341,000 if I am not wrong. These targets are achieved by many programs of immigration cumulatively. Express entry and PNP being the most popular of many in "Economic" category of immigration programs (and there are many other categories as well).

Edit * PNP's are not part of Express Entry. It is only that if you have a PNP nomination you will get an extra 600 points. PNP is a whole different program of immigration

330,000 is the total target including dependents so most of the people are mistaken on this number.

You are right. But I was asking specifically for PNP and the three federal high-skilled programs. The biweekly invitations are sent for these programs, not all programs are included in the draws. For example, the latest draw invited 3400 candidates from the pool, which included for Skilled workers and PNPs, but how would they reach 157,300 candidate with this trend? they would approximately reach the three federal high-skilled programs target only, but this invitations also include PNPs, since PNPs are not invited separately.

:) You are adding the quotas of express entry and provincial nomination programs, that is not the total applications for express entry stream.

Not all the 67k provincial nominations go through express entry. Only the ones in the express entry pool are considered.

Thanks for clarifying :D! do you know the number of candidates that got PNPs and were in the express entry pool in 2019? so that we can estimate whats the percentage of PNPs that are taken from the pool in the coming draw. Thanks

Guess that would be a difficult task, as different PNPs come with draws at different times, with different number of NOIs each draw, and with different processing timelines. But if some one successfully gets a provincial nomination after NOI, that person gets 600 additional points - so all those (or almost all) who have CRS of 600+ are essesntially PNP candidates. Going by EE draws over last few months, the number has varied mostly between 500 and 1500, so that's the range (~15% to ~40% of total EE, average could be somewhere between 20% and 25%).

Just ignore this guy.
Lol, that guy has been making insane predictions for quite some time now. It is like the dude wants some attention!! Looking at all his replies, it seems like he does not want CIC inviting people with CRS scores below 480. Outland applicants would never get a chance if that happens. Also, CIC can not issue 3400 ITAs for scores above 480 if the number of candidates with 480+ scores is well below 3400 (this is the case now). Surely, the dude does not understand how the draws work. It's annoying.
