September Ends With New All-Program Express Entry Draws Issuing 3,750 ITAs For Canada PR 

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held an all-program Express Entry draw on September 28. Canada increased the number of invitations to apply (ITA) to 3,750 with a slight decline in the qualifying Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) of 504 points.  

September 14 draw is the seventh all-program Express Entry  draws  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 increase in draw size and a decline in qualifying scores to accommodate more profiles. This has led to a decrease in the Canadian immigration application backlog.  

Canada invited registered Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residency who qualified under Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canada Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skills Trades Program (FSTP), or with successful provincial nominations in this draw.

Current status of Express Entry Inventory 

IRCC reported nearly 51,616 persons in the Express Entry inventory in late July. The number reduced to 40,180 as of August 31 in approximately six weeks. 

Over half the applications currently in the Express Entry inventory are from applicants in the PNPs. This is notable because several PNPs are aligned with Express Entry programs, known as enhanced nominations. 

Upcoming changes to Express Entry system in 2023

So far in 2022, Canada has issued invitations to 28,039 immigrants under FSWP, CEC & FSTP programs.

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 occupation group choice would depend on Canada’s prevailing market demand. 

This will have an impact on the relevance of CRS scores in some instances and they may become less vital in some future draws.
