New Express Entry Round: 7,000 new invitations | 481 CRS Score

IRCC recently held an all-program express entry draw for the third week in a row.

From December 23, 2020, Express Entry Draw, the CRS score needed for an all-program draw was the lowest on March 29, 2023. The IRCC has invited a total of 21,000 applicants over the last 2 weeks, causing the CRS to drop to 481 today.

Express Entry Draws

Every two weeks, the IRCC conducts Express Entry Drawings and sends ITAs to the applicants who scored the highest.

However, IRCC hasn’t maintained a consistent draw schedule in recent months. For example, 2 draws were held in consecutive weeks, on March 15 and March 23, which matched the biggest all-program draws ever. 7,000 express entry applicants were invited under each draw, 14,000 invitees in total.

You can post your profile to the IRCC website if you’re qualified for at least one of the 3 express entry programs: The Canadian Experience Class (CEEC), the Federal Skilled Trains Program (FSTP), or the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP).

Future Immigration Plans

During the following three years, Canada will boost the number of new immigrants. In 2023, Canada plans to take 465,000 new immigrants. In 2024, the goal will increase to 485,000 additional immigrants, and it will increase to 500,000 in 2025. Express entry drawings will be vital in reaching the targets to welcome all the newcomers across the world.
