Results of Canada’s Express Entry draw on October 26, 2022
The results of the most recent Express Entry draw for Canada were announced on October 26, 2022.
In the most recent all-program draw, candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program received 4,750 invitations to apply to become permanent residents of Canada (FSTP).
A minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 496 was required for this most recent draw, which is four points lower than the draw that took place on October 12, 2022. (minimum CRS score of 500).
The CRS score for an all-program draw, where IRCC accepts applicants from all three Express Entry programs, has fallen below 500 for the first time since December 2020. Another important date for Express Entry was December 2020, as that was the month that the IRCC suspended all-program draws before they resumed on July 6.
In just two more weeks, Canada will hold its next Express Entry draw.
About Express Entry
Canada’s primary strategy for bringing in skilled foreign workers as permanent residents are called Express Entry.
However, there is a prevalent misunderstanding that Express Entry is the name of a specific Canadian immigration program. In reality, Express Entry is just the moniker given to the web tool used to manage all skilled worker applications from the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates must first decide whether they are eligible for one of the three programs offered through Express Entry before applying for permanent residency through this procedure. Qualified candidates must register with IRCC on their website and check their CRS score after being found eligible.
Whether an applicant receives an invitation to apply (ITA), which is necessary to become a permanent resident of Canada, will depend on their CRS score.
The applicant has 60 days from the date of receipt of the ITA from IRCC to finish and submit the electronic application for permanent residence (eAPR) in Canada.
