First Targeted Express Entry Draw sent out 7000 Invitations

On February 1st, 2024, the Canadian immigration system made a friendly move by sending out 7,000 invitations to apply for permanent residency in the first Express Entry draw of the year.

 

The draw specifically targeted profiles with a proficiency level of 7 in French and a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 365 or more. Notably, this marked the lowest CRS score cutoff ever in a French-speaking Express Entry draw, and it also set a record for the highest number of invitations to apply in a single targeted round.

Today’s Express Entry Draw was for individuals at a skill level of 7 in French. A total of 7,000 invitations were issued to applicants with a ranking of 7,000 or above. The draw took place on February 1, 2024, at 4:36:01 PM UTC. The lowest-ranked candidate invited had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 365. In case of ties, the tie-breaking rule considered applicants who submitted their profiles before September 8, 2023, at 9:47:27 AM UTC.

Choosing between candidates: If there are multiple candidates with the same lowest score, we use the day and time they submitted their Express Entry profiles to determine the cutoff.

Yesterday, IRCC invited only 730 people to apply in a regular draw, and the cutoff score was 541.

Before that, on January 23, 2024, IRCC invited 1,040 individuals in a general invitation round for all profiles with a CRS score of 543 or higher.

In the first general Express Entry draw of 2024 on January 10, 1,510 invitations were issued with a CRS score cutoff of 546.
