New Express Entry Draw

On March 23, Canada staged an unexpected Express Entry Draw, inviting an additional 7,000 Express Entry Candidates. This draw evaluated candidates from all Express Entry programs, and the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off criterion was 484 points.


Express Entry Draw 244

Date of Draw: March 23rd, 2023

Number of Invitations Issued: 7000

Minimum CRS: 484


For an Express Entry draw, 7,000 invitations is a big quantity. The number of ITAs granted in an all-program draw on March 23 is matched with last week’s Draw on March 15.


PNP Draws are increasing and how.

Each year, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) designate a specific number of nominations available for each province and territory participating in the PNP.

This year, the IRCC has provided provinces with multi-year allocations for the first time, although these figures have not been made public and have only been shared at the discretion of the provinces.


Canada has set a target to welcome 465,000 new permanent residents in 2023, with 82,880 expected to be admitted through regular Express Entry streams and an additional 105,500 through all Provincial Nominee Program streams, including those aligned with Express Entry.


To achieve this record-high immigration target for 2023, IRCC will need to continue inviting Express Entry candidates in their inventory, which could result in a significant number of Express Entry and PNP invitations being issued. New draw numbers will be posted on the relevant page as soon as they are available.

What is Express Entry for Canada and how you can apply for it

Express Entry is an online system used by the Canadian government to manage applications for permanent residence from skilled foreign workers who want to immigrate to Canada. The program is designed to facilitate the selection of candidates who have the skills and experience required to meet Canada’s economic needs and contribute to its society.


To apply for Express Entry, you must first determine your eligibility by meeting the requirements for one of the three federal economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), or the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). You will need to create an online profile with information about your education, language ability, work experience, and other details relevant to your eligibility. You will also need to complete a language test (IELTS or CELPIP for English, or TEF for French) and an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) to demonstrate that your foreign qualifications are equivalent to Canadian standards.
