September Begins With New All-Program Express Entry Draws Issuing 3,250 ITAs For Canada PR 

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held an all-program Express Entry draw on September 14. Canada issued 2,750 invitations to apply (ITA) with a lower qualifying Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) of 516 points.  

September 14 draw is the sixth all-program Express Entry since July 06, as it resumes after a gap of nearly 18 months. A common trend among all the draws since resuming is a consistent rise in draw size and declining qualifying scores to accommodate more profiles. 

Canada invites registered Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residency who qualifies for Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canada Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skills Trades Program (FSTP), or with successful provincial nominations.

Upcoming Changes to Express Entry System in 2023

IRCC is planning to close labor force gaps by introducing some changes to Express Entry draws. The department is expected to issue ITAs to individuals with specific work experience, education, or language ability. The choice of occupation group would depend on the prevailing market demand in Canada. 

This will have an impact on the relevance of CRS scores in some instances and they may become less vital in some future draws. You can get in touch with our expert consultants to know your chances of qualifying. 

Additionally, most Canadian Immigration applications are going 100% digital from September 23. Read the full story here
