IRCC Resumes Express Entry Draws

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) recently conducted its first Express Entry draw in over a month, extending invitations to a total of 3,200 candidates through an all-program draw on 19th September, 2023.

To secure an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in this draw, candidates needed to obtain a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 531. This score serves as a pivotal factor in the selection process.

During the summer, there was a notable increase in the frequency of Express Entry draws compared to previous years. This rise in draws was attributed to the introduction of category-based selection rounds of invitations. However, until this recent draw, no further draws had occurred following the last all-program draw on August 15, which saw 4,300 candidates receiving ITAs.
