Latest Express Entry draw invites 3,900 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence … Canada Immigration

Canada held an Express Entry draw on October 2, issuing a total of 3,900 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Candidates in the Express Entry pool needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 464 and above to be selected in this round.

Today’s draw was an increase of 300 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) over the previous draw on September 18. The last time Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 3,900 Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence was on January 23, 2019.

The Express Entry system is Canada’s main source of skilled foreign workers. Eligible candidates enter the Express Entry pool and are issued a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score based on their age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.

A job offer is not required to enter or be selected from the Express Entry pool.

The highest-ranked candidates are invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence during regular draws from the pool.
