BREAKING First Express Entry draw in Canada since October 2023

BREAKING NEWS: First Express Entry draw in Canada since October 2023

In today’s blog update, we will be discussing the last Express Entry draw by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

In an all-program draw, IRCC issued 4,750 ITA’s.

A minimum CRS score of 561 was enough for candidates to be considered in this case.

This has been the first draw after October 26. IRCC tweeted on November, 14th, that some applicants were facing difficulties in using the Express Entry Profile Builder and could not complete their application.

After twelve days since the department posted on Twitter about the problem, the issue was solved and it tweeted that the matter was now resolved. The reason behind such a wide span of draws remains obscure, however.


For instance, a category-based selection draw for healthcare occupations was conducted on October 26 in the most recent draw where 3,600 candidates were issued ITAs. The minimum CRS score for candidates was 431.

In addition, the previous week had two other draws. A category-based draw on October 25 involved 300 candidates demonstrating their proficiency in the French language. To be considered, they had to have a CRS score of at least 486.

The rest of the draw was held on October 24th. A PNP-only draw was conducted by IRCC, which extended invitations to 1,548 candidates. There was a cut-off mark of 776 for candidates. Candidates in Express Entry nominated by PNP receive an additional CRS point which results in a greater minimum CRS requirement for such draws.
