(Read More: Which Program is better for Canada immigration?)

FSW candidates are normally drawn in “all-programs” draws that don’t specifically target a particular Express Entry stream.

Below are the given charts for the program specific draws: CEC, PNP and FST draw.

Express Entry Draw History

2022 and 2023 Express Entry draws

The express entry draws in 2022 were only Provincial Nominee Program draws up till July 6, 2022.

The draws have switched to “all-program” draws throughout 2022 and for the first two draws of 2023.

The 3rd, 4th and 6th draws of 2023 were Canada PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) draws and the 4th draw was a Federal Skilled Worker draw. The most recent draws have been “all-program” draws.

Check out the information below for the number of ITA’s issued and the CRS score cut-off for every draw from 2015

Analysis of the latest Express Entry draw

The IRCC has planned to issue 7000 ITAs in a row for the third time. It is a joint programme with the previous draws held on March 15th and March 23rd 2023.

The latest Express entry Draw is the fifth “all-programs” draw of 2023. “All-programs” refers to the candidates applying through any of the various Canada immigration programs.

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off plays a key role in deciding the candidate’s performance. This “all-programs” draw has reduced the CRS score by 3 points since the last draw. The CRS score has decreased by 76 points since “all-programs” draws resumed in July 2022.

We have provided the full history of the draw in the form of charts. Check out the below information to know more.

FSW and CEC draws resume

Canada started conducting Express Entry FSW draws and CEC draws on July 6, 2022, after taking a pause of 19 months

The Express Entry draws were held on July 6, July 20, August 3, August 17, August 31, September 14, September 28, October 12, October 26, November 9, November 23, 2022, January 11, and January 18, 2023. These were “all-programs” draws which means everyone in the Express Entry Pool were eligible to receive an ITA for Canada PR.

Candidates applying through any immigration program like Federal Skilled Workers (FSW), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Canada Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and Federal Skilled Trades (FST) were eligible.

The last Federal Skilled Workers Express Entry Draw was conducted on December 23rd, 2020.

The last CEC draw was conducted on September 14th, 2021.

  • What happens if several candidates have the cut-off for CRS score?

  • The person who has submitted their Express Entry profile will get the first invitation to apply if they meet the CRS cut-off score.

  • How many invitations are given to people to apply in each Express Entry draw?

  • The average number of invitations to apply in each ‘’all-programs’’ draw was 3,582 since 2017. From 2017, the numbers started to be high consistently.

    But when we look at recent statistics, the number of invitations to apply was 3,846 from 2020 to 2022. Also, remember that there were no ‘’all-programs’’ in 2021 due to the pandemic.

  • When will the IRCC conduct the next Express Entry draw?

There is no fixed or definite schedule for the Express Entry draw. But IRCC says that draws will be held about every 2 weeks. Every Express Entry Draw in 2022 was scheduled on a Wednesday.

Frequently Asked Questions

Canada: The Great White North is Number 1 on this list. With easy immigration processes, a welcoming society, great education and healthcare, cool weather, and the ever-growing job market, Canada is the undisputed leader in immigration potential.

Germany: The Deutschland is famous for precision, quality, and high expectations. Unsurprisingly, it makes the list but we’re still going to spell it out. Currently, home to over 170,000 Indians, Germany is a melting pot of different cultures mostly from other countries in the EU. A veritable hub for mechanical engineering, Germany has a low level of corruption, and a love for innovation and is home to over 25 Fortune 500 companies. With the demand for highly skilled professionals, Germany is a choice destination for young, smart immigrants from all over the world.

Provincial Nominee Program is one of the best routes for Canadian immigration. Every province (state) in Canada has its criteria for immigration. This criterion is custom-fitted to reflect the needs and growth opportunities arising in that respective province.

A Master’s Degree translates directly into a better CRS score. Your educational qualifications reflect the contribution you would make to the destination country’s economy which means that you would be more sought after. Speaking one of the country's primary languages (Eg: French for Canada) also greatly raises your chances for both visa success as well job opportunities.

If you fall under the NOC list in Canada or SOL in Australia (Occupations in demand list), it means that jobs are readily available for qualified candidates. On average, individuals earn 8 times as much salary in Canada as compared to India.
