Canada continues to increase ITAs in the latest Express Entry draw

Canada continues to increase ITAs in the latest Express Entry draw

In its fifth all-program draw since July, IRCC invites candidates. Since July 6, Immigration,

Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has conducted its fifth overall Express Entry draw.

With a cut-off score of 516 for the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), IRCC issued 2,750

invitations to apply (ITA). One of Canada's primary immigration routes for skilled immigrants is

Express Entry.

Candidates from the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Canadian Experience Class

(CEC) were eligible to be invited because there was no specific program listed for this draw.

Beginning in December 2020, the IRCC suspended all Express Entry lotteries for a period of

more than 18 months.

Only those individuals were asked to apply during this time who qualified for permanent

residency through the CEC or the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). But in September 2021,

CEC draws were also suspended. The global COVID-19 pandemic was in full swing when the

draws were paused due to an excessive quantity of permanent residency applications. Canada's

border was closed at this time, and travel policies were constantly altered.

Since all-program draws resumed on July 6, this draw has had the biggest gain in ITAs, up by

500. Up to today's draw, every draw saw an increase of precisely 250 candidates earning ITAs.

For instance, 1,500 candidates were called to the first July draw, 1,750 to the second, and so on. 

The minimum CRS score has likewise been decreased, losing between eight and nine points with

each draw. The starting CRS score cutoff was 557.

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the

Federal Skilled Trades Program all use Express Entry as their applicant management system

(FSTP). Candidates for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in the Express Entry pool are

already qualified for at least one of these schemes.

The Comprehensive Ranking Method (CRS), a points-based system used by Express Entry,

ranks candidate profiles. The highest-scoring applicants are given An IRCC official evaluates the

application after the candidate submits it before making a decision. In addition to requesting

biometrics, the officer could schedule an interview or ask for other paperwork. The applicant will

then be a permanent resident of Canada and one step closer to obtaining Canadian citizenship if

this is successful.

Looking Forward

In 2023, IRCC plans to make significant changes to Express Entry that would give the

Department has the power to grant ITAs to people who fit into particular occupational, educational,

or linguistic groupings that it considers will be well-positioned to support Canada's economy and

labor force. This implies that in some upcoming draws, CRS ratings might not be as significant.

An Invitation to Apply (ITA), after which they can submit a permanent residency application. On

the stage at the technology conference Collision in June, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser provided

justification for this idea by saying, " If we can project talents that are needed over the next 20 to

30 years, we can introduce people who can hit the ground running and have a huge economic
