Express Entry Draw Scores Continue to Drop

On August 17, 2022, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued a new round of invitations to apply for permanent residence. Invitations were issued to candidates who qualify for selection under all Express Entry programs.

This week’s draw invited 2,250 candidates to apply. The minimum score selected was 525, down from 533 in the previous draw. Since the all-program draws resumed in July 2022, each draw has increased the number of candidates invited to apply by 250. This week’s draw continued this trend. As a result of the increasingly larger draws, we are seeing the minimum score required for selection continue to decrease.
