While the physical movement is restricted, individuals are still welcome to continue to submit their Express Entry profiles and permanent residence applications. In fact, Canada held an Express Entry draw on March 18.

More time for permanent residence applications

However, in times like this, they are eligible to provide an explanation to IRCC as to why they are not able to submit all of their required documents. IRCC has the discretion to provide such applicants with a 90-day extension to gather and submit all necessary documents.
Also, existing holders of confirmation of permanent residence can also apply for an extension to their deadline to come to Canada. A formal communication to IRCC via the IRCC web form is required in this regard.
