Express Entry Draws's Resumption

IRCC typically reveals Express Entry draws every two weeks, but there was a hiatus of five weeks from October 26 to December 5 without any invitation rounds.


Breaking the silence, IRCC conducted three consecutive draws from December 6th to 8th, extending invitations to 11,650 profiles for permanent residency. Now, a fourth draw is underway this week.


Express Entry candidates in the pool can breathe a sigh of relief, although the CRS cutoff score remains elevated.


As we embark on the new week, anticipations rise for more targeted invitation rounds, given the relatively low number of invitations in today’s Express Entry draw.

Since December 6, a grand total of 12,975 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) have been granted across four Express Entry draws, as detailed below:
