An Invitation to Apply (ITA) was sent to 667 applicants in the most recent Express Entry draw for immigration to Canada. During this draw, 748 points were the cutoff mark for the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

The appearance of an ITA on your IRCC account might take up to 24 hours.

“Additional points” are becoming more crucial

According to the newly published 2021 Express Entry report, other criteria have become more significant in recent years. The percentage of applicants who are accepted based only on human capital points has been declining.

Additional points include: Provincial nomination (600 points), arranged employment (50 or 200 points), post-secondary qualifications in Canada (15 or 30 points), proficiency in French (25 or 50 points), and having a sibling in Canada are additional points (15 points).

The number of points you may earn in addition to your human capital points is limited at 600. (age, education, work experience, official language ability).

Also, starting this year, targeted draws will imply that criteria other than merely human capital will be used to determine who receives an ITA. We will start to see draws that exclusively choose candidates who fit the requirements of a given economic aim put forth by the government, even though all-program draws and other program-specific draws are likely to continue to exist.

Targeted draws might include those with a certain level of education, employment, or linguistic proficiency, according to the IRCC. There haven't been many more specifics made public.

In 2023, Canada plans to welcome 465,000 new permanent residents. It is anticipated that 82,880 admissions will be made through the standard Express Entry streams and an additional 105,500 will be made through all PNP streams, including those that are connected with Express Entry.

It might be a significant year for Express Entry and PNP invites since IRCC will need to continue inviting Express Entry applicants in its inventory in order to reach 2023's record-high immigration objectives. As soon as new draw numbers are available, they will be posted on this website.
