However, it is mandatory that the profiles are properly scrutinized before the submission. As the profiles are properly filtered, it will be important to submit the profile with proper back up of documental evidence.
Although the number of profiles submitted into the Express Entry pool is more than that on 2018, the number of ITAs issued is less than that were issued in 2018 due to the filtration process.
Through, Canada Provincial Nominee Program a total of fourteen thousand nine hundred and twenty eight profiles obtained ITA. While through Canadian Experience Class program, a total of 30, 563 candidates got their ITA and a total of 38,809 candidates got their ITA through Federal Skilled Workers program.

Canada has given a lot of importance for all those candidates who are well-educated people with knowledge of at least 1 of the official languages.
If the candidate credentials do not support any of the above mentioned pathways, Canada has defined other pathways through which one can relocate to Canada. A good number of 40,725 profiles from India were issued an ITA and this is the top most country from where the profiles were chosen. Indians having the right knowledge, skill and language proficiency are qualified to enter the periphery with ease.
The other reason why Indians got the top preference is also because, Indians are known for their skill in technology which is one of the top dominating National Occupational Classification code List.
