Express Entry likely to change in 2023

Into late 2022 and early 2023, candidates can expect that Express Entry draws will continue as they are and CRS scores will be the main deciding factor in issuing ITAs.

However, starting in 2023, the recently passed Bill C-19 means IRCC will have the authority to conduct targeted draws. The criteria for receiving an ITA could vary between draws depending on Canada’s most pressing economic need.

For example, an individual could receive an ITA based on their occupation, education or language abilities. Immigration Minister Sean Fraser has said that these targeted draws will better place new permanent residents on a path to success while also ensuring that urgent gaps in Canada’s workforce are filled.


Highlights Of The Latest Express Entry Draw

  • This is the 11th consecutive draw under the no program specified immigration program category.
  • In addition, this is the 11th consecutive time the CRS cut-off is reduced with each draw.
  • In this continuation, from July 6, 2022, to the latest express entry draw, CRS is reduced by 66 points.
  • As far as, Canada PR has concerned, 66 points reduction is one of the significant phenomena. Because the CRS points made a huge impact on the selection of any candidate.
  • If we observed when the No Program Specified draws were begun Canadian Immigration invited only 1500 candidates. On the other end, now they are inviting almost 5000 candidates with each draw.
  • As a result, within six months and from the eleven draws the IRCC invited more than 35,000 candidates through No Program Specified draws.
  • As compared with the past fourteen draws before July 6, 2022, the department invited almost 11,000 candidates only.
  • Additionally, there are likely chances that the new latest change in the NOC pattern will also play a major role to invite more and more candidates for Canada PR.
