On February 28th 2024, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held a general Express Entry draw

The draw issued 1470 Invitations to apply (ITAs) for candidates from all Express Entry programs giving them an opportunity to reach a greater milestone and get their Permanent Residency.

Notably, the draw set a competitive tone with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 534 for the lowest-ranked candidate invited.

Summary of the Draw

  • Number of invitations issued: 1470
  • CRS score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 534 
  • Date and time of round: February 28, 2024, at 14:57:26 UTC
  • Tie-breaking rule: January 16, 2024, at 03:51:05 UTC

The current draw comes after three others that took place from February 13 to 16. 1,490 candidates with a minimum CRS of 535 were invited to the IRCC’s second general draw of the month, denoting a one point change in CRS score.

The Immigration Levels Plan of the IRCC states that the government intends to accept 110,770 new permanent residents through Express Entry in 2024.As Canada continues to fine-tune its immigration policies, we can anticipate more draws in the coming months. The Express Entry system remains a beacon for skilled individuals worldwide, offering a transparent and merit-based pathway to Canadian permanent residence.Candidates are encouraged to stay informed, modify their approaches, and set out on their Canadian journey with hope as the immigration landscape evolves.

Are you ready to take the next step toward your dream of becoming a Canadian permanent resident? Look no further than the Express Entry draw, your gateway to a new life in one of the most welcoming countries in the world.

The Express Entry draw is a pivotal moment for individuals aspiring to immigrate to Canada. It’s a selection process conducted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to invite candidates from the Express Entry pool to apply for permanent residence. This draw occurs regularly throughout the year and is eagerly anticipated by thousands of hopeful applicants.

So, how does the Express Entry draw work? Let’s break it down:

  1. Eligibility Criteria: To enter the Express Entry pool, candidates must meet the eligibility requirements of one of the three federal economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, or the Canadian Experience Class.
  2. Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS): Upon entering the pool, candidates are assigned a CRS score based on factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other adaptability factors. The CRS score determines the candidate’s ranking within the pool.
  3. Draws and Invitations to Apply (ITAs): During each Express Entry draw, IRCC sets a minimum CRS score requirement. Candidates with CRS scores above this threshold are issued Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence. The number of ITAs issued varies depending on Canada’s immigration goals and priorities.
  4. Application Process: Once invited to apply, candidates have a limited time to submit a complete application for permanent residence, including supporting documents and fees. IRCC aims to process complete applications within six months.
  5. Permanent Residence: Upon approval, successful candidates and their families become permanent residents of Canada, with the opportunity to live, work, and study anywhere in the country.

The Express Entry draw is a dynamic process influenced by various factors, including Canada’s economic needs, immigration targets, and CRS score distribution among candidates. As a result, CRS score requirements may fluctuate from one draw to another, impacting the competitiveness of the pool.

For prospective immigrants, staying informed about Express Entry draw trends and understanding how CRS scores are calculated can enhance their chances of receiving an ITA. Additionally, maximizing CRS points through language proficiency tests, education credential assessments, and gaining additional work experience can improve eligibility for permanent residence.
