Here are the results of Canada's most recent Express Entry draw on October 26, 2022.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued 4,750 invites to Canadian permanent resident hopefuls in the latest all-program draw — including candidates in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
This is the first time since December 2020 that the CRS score for an all-program draw — where IRCC invites candidates from all three Express Entry programs — has dropped below 500. December 2020 was also significant for Express Entry because that is when IRCC paused all-program draws prior to their resumption on July 6.
Canada's next Express Entry draw will be conducted in roughly another two weeks' time.
About Express Entry
Express Entry — the online application management system for skilled worker applications from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) — is one of this country’s main methods for bringing international skilled workers to Canada through permanent residence.
Applying for permanent residence through Express Entry begins with determining your eligibility for any of the three programs under this application management system. After determining eligibility, qualified applicants must submit an online profile on IRCC's website and check their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
A candidate's CRS score will be the primary factor that determines whether or not they receive an invitation to apply (ITA), which is the key to becoming a permanent resident in Canada.
ITA recipients will then have 60 days to submit their electronic application for permanent residence (eAPR) in Canada.
