IRCC draws for express entry

This marks a significant milestone for IRCC, representing the first time since December 2023 that three draws have been conducted within a single week. On February 16, 2024, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) hosted its third Express Entry draw of the week, featuring pivotal developments in Canada's immigration landscape:

150 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) were issued in a category-based draw targeting eligible candidates with valuable work experience in Agriculture/Agri-Food occupations. Achieving a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 437 was essential for qualification.
