April 12th, 2023 marked the first Express Entry All-programs draw of the month. A total of 3500 Invitations to Apply were sent to candidates from the three Express Entry sub-categories- the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
The minimum CRS cutoff for this All-program Express Entry draw was 486. This draw comes after three straight Express Entry contests in which 7,000 applicants were requested to participate. With a CRS cut-off score of 481, the most recent draw on March 29 also witnessed the lowest score since December 2020.
The candidates who have received the ITAs have only 60 days from the time they get the ITA to submit their complete application to IRCC. After reviewing the application, a police officer will decide whether or not to grant the applicant permanent residence status.
