Here's some unprecedented news regarding Express Entry where Canada invited 27,000 candidates for their latest draw. Hoping there's some good news for the Self-Employed Stream, too.

The article says, "The unprecedented draw today seems to indicate that IRCC is aiming to issue as many invitations as it can at the beginning of this year so that it can complete the permanent residence landings of successful Express Entry candidates later in 2021. This would provide IRCC with a greater opportunity to achieve its immigration levels target amid ongoing coronavirus disruptions across the world. At the same time IRCC and Mendicino continue to stress that they will also look to global talent including those currently outside of Canada to support the country’s post-pandemic recovery."

Unfortunately the target number for the business stream is only 1,000/yr. That number is extremely low for the 400,000 immigrants/year overall number.

Hello for Self-employed- if someone is not self-employed but works as Photographer or Designer- has a job- do they qualify under this program?

This plan is for 2021 to 2023.
I have submitted in 2020. And because of covid all the applications which sent in 2020 are still not in process.they will increase target i guess.
I don’t know what the target was for 2020 but the target now looks like it will stay at 1000 and not increase over the next 3 years, unlike most of the other streams. The number is for the year they give you PR, not the year you applied.
