Next Express Entry Draw 2022

Express Entry next draw date prediction: next Express Entry draw will be on January 5, 2022.

The Canadian government conducts an Express Entry draw approximately every two weeks. Most recently it has been a trend that the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has been conducting the Express Entry draw date on a fortnightly basis which is about every 15 days. The frequency of 15 days might change but a minimum of two express entry draws occur in a month.

When Is the Next Express Entry Draw Date?

Typically, an Express Entry draw is every two weeks on a Wednesday. There are some occurrences when a PNP draw has been done on a Wednesday, the next day there is a CEC draw on Thursday. The latest Express Entry Draw was #212 on December 22nd, 2021. The 212th draw offered 746 ITA to those with a cut-off CRS score of 720. This draw was targeted towards PNP, so we expect the next draw to be targeted towards CEC or FSW.

Due to the coronavirus/COVID-19, many things in immigration can be unpredictable but we assume that the next date will be two weeks from the previous one.

Will the Next Draw Be a CEC Draw? Is There Going to Be a CEC Draw in 2022?

It may be, but we’re not sure. The last CEC draw occurred on September 14, 2021, and there have been a total of 17 CEC draws so far in the year of 2021. We can’t predict the exact date that the next CEC draw will take place this year, but they are often done after PNP draws.

Because Canadian experience is a crucial qualifying element, the majority of CEC applicants in the Express Entry pool apply from within the country. Candidates for the CEC must have one year of full-time Canadian work experience in a skilled field.
