Prepare for the opportunities and challenges you may face; pre-arrival settlement programs are essential. They assist immigrants in settling into their new areas and finding employment more quickly by equipping them with the resources they need before they arrive in Canada.

Proof Of Funds updates for Express Entry:

The I.R.C.C. revised the cost of living chart for newcomers to Canada. These figures are revised annually by the federal government and are based on half of the low-income cut-off figures. A candidate for Express Entry may need to change the settlement fund numbers listed in their Express Entry profile in order to maintain eligibility. The deadline for implementing the change is April 25, 2023.

Updates for foreign national physicians seeking to immigrate to Canada

Many foreign-born doctors who wish to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents meet the requirements to apply to the country's federal economic immigration programs through the Express Entry system of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. However, because of the nature of their jobs, these doctors might have secured employment and/or work experience in Canada that does not satisfy the standards of express entry programs.

The new public policy provides exemptions for foreign national physicians whose medical services are reimbursed through public funds, in recognition of the unique situation faced by physicians who are considered self-employed, including those who receive payment under a fee-for-service model or other contractual service arrangements.


On the #249th express entry draw, the Canadian immigration department sent 4,800 invitations to apply for new immigrants. Canada has invited 47,100 Express Entry candidates through the Express Entry program, including Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Class, and Skilled Trade Class. For the upcoming express entry draw, candidates should make their profile stronger by analyzing the latest report and stats from immigration experts.
