In a Surprising Express Entry Draw, Canada has Issued an Additional 7,000 Invitations
On March 23, in an unprecedented move, Canada held an unscheduled Express Entry draw. Issuing a staggering 7,000 invitations to candidates across all Express Entry programs. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off for this draw stood at 484 points. This showcases the opportunities available to a wide range of applicants and reflects Canada’s commitment to welcoming skilled immigrants.
Remarkably, this number of invitations matches the record set by the March 15 draw, which was also an all-program draw. The recent Express Entry draw defies expectations, as it marks the second consecutive week that IRCC has invited candidates, veering from the typical bi-weekly schedule of Express Entry draws. This deviation indicates a possible shift in Canada’s immigration strategy, aiming to expedite the process and bring in more skilled professionals.
This round of invitations is particularly noteworthy, as it ties for the largest all-program draw ever and boasts the second-largest number of ITAs, with 7,000 invitations issued. The record for the largest Express Entry draw size is still held by the CEC-only draw conducted in February 2021.
