All Program Express Entry Draw Invites 1,040 Candidates to Apply

On January 23, 2024, 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 and Canadian Experience Class, and in all occupation classifications.

This week’s draw invited 1,040 candidates to apply. Due to the relatively small number of candidates invited, the minimum score required for selection remains high at 543 points. Cut off scores decreased 3 points from the previous general draw which occurred on January 10, 2024, and had a cut off score of 546.
