LATEST EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW: 3,749 CANDIDATES INVITED FOR IMMIGRATION TO CANADA

The second Express Entry draw to be held in March and the 57th overall, took place last Friday. In this latest draw, a total of 3,749 candidates were issued with an Invitation to Apply (ITA), for immigration to Canada, with each candidate having 441 or more Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points at the time the draw was conducted.

The candidates who received an ITA are now in a position to submit an application for Canadian permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Accompanying family members, including spouses or common-law partners, as well as dependent children, may also come to Canada along with the principal applicant.

In order to be in opposition to receive an ITA in an Express Entry draw, individuals are first required to meet the eligibility criteria of one of the three immigration programs managed through the Express Entry system – the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FTSC), or Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Upon entering the pool, candidates are assigned a CRS score based on factors including civil status information, education, work experience, language ability, and other criteria. This score determines their ranking in the pool. During the periodic draws, IRCC issues ITAs to the highest-ranking candidates. Those candidates who receive an ITA may submit an application for Canadian permanent resident status.
