New Express Entry Draw Issues 730 Permanent Residency Invitations

Today, January 31st, the third Express Entry draw of 2024 saw 730 invitations to apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residency being issued.

The draw, conducted by IRCC, targeted Express Entry profiles with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 541 or higher.

Compared to the previous general draw on January 23, the CRS cutoff score experienced a slight decrease of 2 points.

Key details from today’s Express Entry Draw include:

1. Number of invitations issued: 730

2. Minimum rank required for invitation: 730 or above

3. Date and time of round: January 31, 2024, at 15:18:02 UTC

4. CRS score of the lowest-ranked candidate invited: 541

5. Tie-breaking rule: July 15, 2023, at 10:52:08 UTC

Break in case of a tie: If multiple candidates share the lowest score, the tiebreaker is determined by the day and time of submission of their Express Entry profiles.


The number of invitations has consistently decreased since the inaugural Express Entry draw in 2024, maintaining a high cutoff score.


In a recent general round of invitations on January 23, 2024, the IRCC issued 1,040 invitations to apply, encompassing all profiles with a CRS score of 543 or above.


Additionally, the first general Express Entry draw of 2024 on January 10th saw 1,510 invitations to apply, with a CRS score cutoff of 546.

What is Express Entry?

Express Entry functions as a management system for applications in three significant economic immigration programs: the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).


Using the Comprehensive Ranking System, Express Entry assesses candidates based on various human capital factors and assigns them a score.


Considerations for human capital include work experience, language proficiency, education, age, and occupation.


Candidates with the highest CRS scores have a greater likelihood of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in the subsequent Express Entry round.


Upon obtaining an ITA, candidates can submit their applications to the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).


The government aims to process Express Entry applications and issue final decisions within a six-month service standard.

What types of jobs are the main focus in Express Entry draws?

Check out the comprehensive list of occupations through the provided link. Express Entry is currently prioritizing candidates from the following five sectors:

  1. Healthcare
  2. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) professions
  3. Trades, including carpenters, plumbers, and contractors
  4. Transportation
  5. Agriculture and Agri-food
