Started in 2015, EEP Canada is the safest and fastest way to get a Canadian PR. It manages every Express Entry Application and who applied for PR Visa under three federal Economic Immigration Programs which are:

Next Canada Express Entry Draw Predictions

Canada conducts Express Entry drawings about every two weeks. On average, there are two entry drawings every month. This means the next predicted date for this month is around 17th August 2022. The Express Entry draws are usually performed every two weeks on a Wednesday. As a result of COVID-19, Canada is conducting express entry draws that specifically target CEC candidates and Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination. This is a way for Canada to give preference to those already living in the country. So immigrants who want a Canadian PR, need to focus on tabs of Canada Express Entry Draw Predictions.

COVID-19 Impact on EEP Canada

Canada is still issuing PR Visas but due to COVID-19, their focus shifts on CEC candidates and EEP Applications with provincial nominations. According to IRCC, a request for papers that is incomplete because of COVID-19 will not be rejected.

If your PR visa application is due, you may still submit it even if some of the required papers are missing. Just be sure to add a letter of explanation explaining why the missing documents are needed. You have 90 days to finish the application stages that are still unfinished from IRCC.
