IRCC has not yet given details on when the next FSW draw will occur although prospective Canadian immigration candidates are advised to continue to submit profiles to the Express Entry list. This not only means that they will be in the program if an FSW draw is held, but also that they will be accessible to the provinces and territories of Canada when issuing provincial nominations that are connected to Express Entry.
Applicants who receive a nomination from a province or territory in Canada, receive an extra 600 points in their CRS ranking, effectively raising their possibility of being included in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
