  • Canada's massive immigration backlog is finally easing


    According to reports, data released by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), has shown that the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) inventory went down by over 9,000 applicants between December 15, 2021 and February 28, 2022.

    The number of Canadian Experience Class (CEC) applicants on the waiting list dropped by over 12,000.

    Almost 24,000 visas were processed under the Express Entry pathway as a whole.

    There are 3 immigration programs managed through Express Entry:
    • Canadian Experience Class
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program
    At the start of 2021, Canada decided to shift focus, slowing down FSWP processing, and transitioning more temporary residents to permanent residence holders, mainly through the CEC, to give it a better shot of achieving its 401,000 immigrants target. Before the pandemic, the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) accounted for almost half of successful Express Entry candidates.
