Express Entry Next Draw Date 2022

By Ella Bergquist April 9, 2020 (Updated December 8, 2022) 2 min. read
Next Express Entry Draw 2022

When Will the Next Express Entry Draw for 2022 Be?

The Canadian government and IRCC will typically have Express Entry draws every 2 weeks on a Wednesday. However, this past Wednesday, December 7, there was no draw. This is thought to be due to glitches/technical errors in the Express Entry system. Based on this, we predict the next Express Entry draw will take place on December 14, 2022.

The frequency of every two weeks might change but a minimum of two express entry draws occur in a month. 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 #236 on November 23rd, 2022. The 236th draw offered 4,750 ITA to those with a cut-off CRS score of 491. This draw was not targeted toward a specific program.

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.

What Time of Day is the Express Entry Draw Announced?

There is no exact set time of day Express Entry draws happen, but we typically see that they are announced every other Wednesday afternoon, sometime after 3pm EST.

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

The next draw will most likely be another all programs draw, as that is what we have been seeing since July 2022. The last CEC only draw occurred on September 14, 2021, and there have been a total of 17 CEC draws in the year of 2021, and none so far in 2022.

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.

How to Prepare for the Next Express Entry Draw

If you are already in the Express Entry pool then you are just waiting for the next draw that fits your CRS score.

If you were just invited with the last Express Entry draw then you have 60 days to submit your application for permanent residence!

Calculate Your CRS Score with the CRS Calculator

VisaPlace has created a CRS calculator. Speak with Cris, the CRS calculator bot, to find out what your estimated CRS score is.

Once you determine your CRS score you will know your eligibility for Express Entry based on the minimum CRS score on previous Express Entry draws.

Find out what your CRS score is right now!

How We Can Help You Get Into Express Entry in 2022

The most important aspect of the Express Entry Program is to provide complete and accurate information/documentation and get an ITA. Without an invitation, you are unable to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry Program. In order to receive an invitation, you have to be selected from a pool of applicants who are competing for an invitation.

Our job is to make your profile STAND OUT from the crowd. We will assess your case, highlight the best aspects of your application, and make sure that you have obtained the highest eligible score! This way, your chances of getting an invitation are maximized.

Our experience with the team at VisaPlace has been absolutely amazing. Special thank you to Nadia Bakhtiari whom we had the pleasure of partnering with. Nadia was attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accessible. She provided guidance and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were so impressed with the professionalism and exceptional client experience from VisaPlace that we partnered with them for both our PR application and our citizenship application. Thank you VisaPlace and thank you Nadia!

We were switched legal teams 3 times within our time there.( This was not our doing) We weren’t impressed at all with the service almost all the way through our experience. Our review would have been 1 star. The response time was awful. To get in contact with our attorney was so difficult. And not thorough. Almost at the end, when we were almost ready to file, we got switched again, but this time, we are thankful. The attorney we got then was Andrew Diamond. He is fantastic and the reason for the 5 star rating. This is his rating. He was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing and prompt with response time and very knowledgeable, thorough and so helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Andrew for all you did for us!

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!
