Express Entry Update

On April 12, 2023, 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, including the Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, Provincial Nominee Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

This week’s draw invited 3,500 candidates to apply, a decrease from the draws held throughout March 2023 in which 7,000 candidates were invited per draw. As a result of the smaller draw size, the minimum score required for selection rose to 486 this week, up five points from the previous cut off score of 481.
