@Canada2628 If there is to be a draw next Wednesday, I most likely think it would be FST. An all program draw is unlikely before the end of this month because they have already reached the target for July.

All we can do is wait and hope for an all program draw in the first week of August. I really wish the next one is an all program draw. FSW candidates truly deserve a reasonable chance.

Guys, are we moving to another FSW Ray of Hope thread to share our disappointment, have crazy optimistic theories and eventually find shoulders to cry on?
Or should we move to the common thread and expose ourselves to people like facethereality and watch CEC vs FSW unfold every day?
This is funny :D

Okay, next draw on August 5.
Brace to see an "All program draw" by then at least
I guess this CEC/PNP might also be related to border closure with US or something
I mean, all these crazy thoughts are lingering in my mind to see what is the exact logic behind inviting CECs and why there was an FSW draw on July alone
Man, mind is completely devastated

I completely understand how you feel. One of the best guesses is that IRCC is alternating between all program draws and program-specific draws. I hope there is an all program draw on 5th August. I feel they would have otherwise not done the draw earlier this month. But the wait has not been easy at all. I hope we all receive our ITAs soon.

To be honest, I signed up for this thread because it said ‘ray of hope’. However, it looks like at this point it is full of negativity and pessimistic observation. I am sitting at 474 with all of my documents prepared. If I don’t get an ITA by end of August, I will be loosing 5 crucial points. I know a lot of you are on the same boat as me, but I am not going to let it sink my hopes. We’ll have to hang in there! There will be a limit to CEC candidates at one point. CIC will have no choice but to hold a FSW draw. We’ve to be prepared for that day.

474 is a very good score. My CRS is 473. You will most likely get through in the next draw which would hopefully be an all program draw.

I hope so too, if I don’t get the ITA by then, I have room to improve in my IELTS. Thats the plan B. I can get additional 6 Points after loosing 5, and that will give me room for another year!

Hopefully, it does not come down to that! I hope August is the month for us to make some progress.

They are cheating. I paid a lot of money for this shit, had sleepless nights to prepare my documents genuinely, but guess what? My degrees from top 100 universities are worthless unless I embellish them with an ordinary college degree from Canada. If I pay tuition fees as an international student, all the doors will be opened for me. This is what the IRCC is trying to push everybody. They are not fair.
Not really. To simply get eligible for CEC, most students have to stay in Canada for at least 3 years. 2 years as a student and 1 year in a skilled job. They’ve surely invested much more time, money and sleepless nights than you to immigrate. So why don’t we simply be patient and be happy for them ?

Hi, I have a question. I am currently studying a one-year program here in Canada, so I will get 15 extra points. Do you know when I will be able to get those points? I am currently doing my internship and I hope by the end of July I will have all my marks in. I am a FSW with 477, so with those extra points I will have 492, just wanted to know in case a general draw happens again with +480 CRS scores.
Thanls.

Such a stress buster this message of yours.
Laughing hard
Yes, even during the last interview when there were uncertain times in the US (few weeks ago), the immigration minister sent a message to all the outlanders in the US to come to Canada and apply without any second thought through the EE
Man, on the one hand, the immigration minister keeps tweeting encouraging people (especially from US due to H1B restrictions) to come to Canada through EE and on the other hand, IRCC be like hold my beer to FSWs and keeps inviting CECs as always.
I really wonder how a candidate with a cut-off score of 97 can get a nomination from Alberta or BC and acquire 697 points. Honestly, I',m not sure how a guy will only get 97 points in the CRS tool before a nomination
Same goes with CEC. With CLB9, 3 years exp, MBA and UG, Skilled in an occupation and 1 year of Canadian Experience can easily surpass 500. Okay, I can reduce the above to CLB8, 2 years overseas Exp, PG Diploma (overseas), UG, 1 year Canadian Degree, and 1-year Canadian work exp can still boost the score to above 460.
I understand some of them might score less due to age but really wonder how people can go lower than 440 or 450 with a Canadian Degree and Canadian work exp. There will obviously be few exceptions here but still how??
