Canada’s Express Entry Kicks off 2024 with a Bang!

Greetings, aspiring immigrants and fellow enthusiasts of the Express Entry system! Today, on January 10, 2024, Canada has just held its very first Express Entry draw of the year, inviting a total of 1,510 candidates to embark on their journey to permanent residency. The excitement is palpable as we delve into the details of this significant event.

Express Entry Draw Highlights:

  • Invited Candidates: A whopping 1,510 candidates received invitations in this draw. If you’re among them, congratulations are in order!
  • CRS Score: The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut-off for this draw is set at 546 points. While this might seem high, especially for those without a provincial nomination, fear not – there are numerous ways to boost your score.
  • Inclusive Categories: Candidates from all programs and categories were considered, as long as they met the CRS threshold. The Express Entry system continues to be a versatile pathway for diverse immigration streams.
  • Waiting Time: If you suspect you might have received an Invitation to Apply (ITA), keep an eye on your inbox! It might take up to 24 hours for the invitation to reach you.

Decoding the 546 CRS Points:

Achieving a CRS score of 546 or more without a provincial nomination demands excellence in various factors. These include French-language proficiency, having a sibling in Canada, possessing a Canadian education, and other commendable attributes.

As per the CRS distribution, a significant 1,298 candidates boasted scores exceeding 600 points at the time of the draw. This suggests that a considerable portion of the invited candidates likely secured a provincial nomination through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

Express Entry Process Step by Step:

  1. Check Your Eligibility: Ensure you meet the eligibility criteria for one of the three federal immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), or Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
  2. Create an Express Entry Profile: Provide accurate information about your skills, work experience, language proficiency, education, and other relevant details. This will be used to calculate your CRS score.
  3. Obtain Language Test Results: Take an approved language test (English or French) to demonstrate your proficiency. High language scores significantly contribute to your CRS points.
  4. Educational Credential Assessment (ECA): If your education is from outside Canada, obtain an ECA to ensure your credentials are equivalent to Canadian standards.
  5. Submit Profile to the Pool: Once your profile is complete, submit it to the Express Entry pool. You will be assigned a CRS score based on the information provided.
  6. Receive ITA: If your CRS score meets or exceeds the cut-off in a draw, you may receive an ITA. Keep a close eye on your email, as invitations can arrive within 24 hours.
  7. Submit Application for Permanent Residence: After receiving an ITA, you have 60 days to submit a complete application for permanent residence.

Looking Ahead:

Since the introduction of category-based draws in the summer of 2023, IRCC has been conducting draws at irregular intervals. Brace yourselves for potential draws in the coming days or weeks – the Express Entry journey is as unpredictable as it is exciting.

Whether another draw happens tomorrow or a streak unfolds next week, stay informed and prepared. The Express Entry system is a dynamic pathway, and your opportunity might be just around the corner.
