Visit Visa
3/5 - (2 votes)

In the latest Express Entry draw held today, 4,750 individuals received invitations to apply (ITAs) for permanent residency in a round where no specific program was specified.

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score saw an increase of 61 points, reaching 561 compared to the previous ‘no program specified’ Express Entry draw.

Key Details Of The Draw:

Number of invitations issued: 4,750

Rank required for invitation: 4,750 or above

Date and time of the draw: December 6, 2023, at 16:27:26 UTC

CRS score of the lowest-ranked candidate invited: 561

Tie-breaking rule: November 08, 2023, at 06:00:13 UTC

The CRS cutoff rose due to the omission of the last biweekly invitation round by IRCC, attributed to a technical glitch in the profile builder. This draw marks the first since October 26, 2023.

How Express Entry Draws Work;

The Express Entry system facilitates permanent residence applications in two steps:

Expression of Interest: Individuals express their interest in immigrating to Canada by completing an online profile. The system screens the profile to determine eligibility for skilled immigration programs. Eligible profiles are placed in the Express Entry pool and assigned a CRS score.

Invitations and Application: Candidates in the pool are ranked by CRS score, and regular draws are conducted to invite candidates for permanent residence. Draws are either general, based solely on CRS scores, or category-based, focusing on specific job experiences or language proficiency.

After receiving an ITA:

Candidates have 60 days to submit an application or decline the invitation.

Unsuccessful candidates or those who decline an ITA remain in the pool for up to 12 months.

Upon submission, an immigration officer assesses the application for CRS score, program eligibility, and admissibility. Successful applicants receive permanent resident status upon landing in Canada.

Express Entry Processing Time;

Processing times vary but aim to process 80% of applications within 6 months. Currently, most Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) applications are processed within 5 months. Factors affecting processing times include the specific program, application volume, and completeness.

Category-Based Draws;

Canada introduced category-based draws on May 31, 2023, targeting qualified immigrants in 82 occupations to address labor market gaps in sectors like healthcare, STEM, trades, transport, agriculture, and agri-food. This initiative enhances opportunities for skilled workers in these specific fields to become permanent residents.
