Canada Conducts Record-Breaking All-Program Express Entry Draw

Canada's Express Entry program issues invitations to 7,000 candidates on March 15

The number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) given out in this all-program draw was the highest ever recorded. Applicants needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 490 points to qualify for consideration.

Kindly be informed that it may take a maximum of 24 hours for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to be visible on your IRCC account.

PNPs Are Increasing: Understanding the Rise of Provincial Nominee Programs

Canada announced on March 10, after the Forum of Ministers Responsible for Immigration, that the provinces will receive an increased allocation of PNP nominations this year, with an average increase of 44%. The IRCC assigns a fixed number of nominations annually to each province and territory taking part in the PNP program.

In the current year, IRCC has provided provinces with multi-year allocations for the first time. Although these figures were not publicly released, provinces have shared them as they saw fit.

The goal for Canada is to accept 465,000 new permanent residents in 2023, with 82,880 expected through regular Express Entry streams and an additional 105,500 through all PNP streams, including those that are aligned with Express Entry.

To achieve the immigration goals set for 2023, the IRCC will have to persist in sending out invitations to Express Entry candidates from its pool. This could make it a significant year for those who have applied through the Express Entry and PNP programs. The latest draw figures will be published on this website once they are released.

Upcoming Express Entry Draw: When Can Applicants Expect the Next Draw?

It is impossible to predict the exact timing of future Express Entry draws since no public schedule exists. Nonetheless, historically, the IRCC has conducted draws on Wednesdays, every two weeks. Despite this pattern, draws can occur on different days and the interval between them can vary in length.
