On November 9, Canada conducted its most current all-program Express Entry draw. Since all program draws began on July 6, this is the tenth in a row.
A minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 494 was required for invitations to be sent out to 4,750 candidates by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) all sought qualified applicants. All of these initiatives work with the Express Entry framework.
All Express Entry program draws were put on hold for more than 18 months beginning in December 2020. The eligible candidates for CEC or the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) received invitations to apply even though there was a hiatus. Due to a queue of applications brought on by COVID-19-related travel bans, the lotteries were put on hold. There also was a halt from the IRCC in holding lotteries for the CEC in September 2021.
In line with the draw that was done on October 26, 4,750 candidates have been invited this time around. The smallest dip since all-program draws commenced was also seen in the minimum CRS, which dropped from 496 to 472 points.
Express Entry has issued invitations to 26,250 candidates in total.
13,774 of them—the majority— come from the CEC. Applicants for this program must already have lived or worked in Canada for at least a year before submitting their application, and they must also have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of 5 for NOC B employment or a CLB score of 7 for NOC skill level 0 or A positions.
The FSWP candidates (6,154) and Express Entry applicants through the PNP (6322) are distributed nearly evenly among the remainder invitations. Under the FSTP, no applicants have been invited.
