The First Express Entry Draw Since 2020


For the first time since December 2020, Canada invited a total of 1500 FSWP (Federal Skilled Worker program) candidates on Wednesday, July 7.


As Canada’s Immigration Minister had promised earlier this year, the first Express Entry draw was finally resumed.


Furthermore, CEC (Canadian Experience Class) draws which were paused in September 2021 due to backlogs, were resumed on July 7 too. IRCC paused CEC invitations in September 2021 in order to address its application backlogs.


It should be mentioned that the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut-off score was 557.


What is Express Entry?

Express Entry is a points-based system to evaluate applicants and the quickest way to immigrate to Canada. There are 3 immigration programs managed through Express Entry:


  • skilled workers with Canadian work experience

  • skilled workers with foreign work experience

  • skilled workers who are qualified in a skilled trade


This system invites candidates with the best rank to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.


Eligibility For Express Entry Program:

The Canada Express Entry points scale has a maximum score of 1200 and evaluates the candidates and their spouses (if any) on their:

  • Age

  • The highest level of education

  • Language skills

  • Canadian work experience

  • Other work experience

  • Skill transferability

  • Other factors


How to know if I am eligible?

To check your eligibility for Express Entry and potential CRS points, you can use the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) to assess your skills, education and language ability. To be invited, you need to have a score above the minimum points score for your round of invitations.
