Canada increased ITAs again in the latest Express Entry draw


IRCC invited 2,750 in latest Express Entry draw

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued 2,750 Invitations to Apply (ITA) in the latest Express Entry draw. The Comprehensive Ranking System score (CRS) cut-off was 516.

Express Entry is a system that Canada uses to manage skilled worker applications. It also is the most popular way to immigrate to Canada.

This was an all-program draw – the 5th all-program draw since all-program Express Entry draw resumed in July 2022. As such candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) also got ITAs. Since December 2020, IRCC excluded CEC and FSWP from Express Entry draws as IRCC invited only Provincial Nominee Program candidates, due to severe applications backlog.

The number of candidates receiving ITAs grew by exactly 250 with each of the 5 draws. ITAs went up by 250 in the second, third and fourth draw, and by 500 in this 5th draw.

As well, the minimum CRS score declined between 8 or 9 points each draw.

Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System

In each Express Entry draw, Canada issues ITA to applicants with high Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score to apply for permanent residence.

CRS evaluates your human capital factors, such as age, education, English and/or French skills, work experience. The maximum CRS score available is 1,200 points. If you score the minimum CRS score for an Express Entry draw you get an ITSAS. And once IRCC approves your PR application and you complete the landing process, you become a Canadian permanent resident.
