The latest Express Entry Draw took place on January 31st, 2024, which was the 281st Express Entry Draw. This was a general draw. The draw offered:

This is the third Express Entry draw of January 2024. Canada is inviting thousands of immigrants to apply for Permanent Residency every month.

The next express entry draw #282 is expected to occur on February 7, 2024.

Latest CRS Score Cut-Off is 541

The latest CRS draw score is 541. This is the cut-off CRS score for the most recent draw. Anyone with this score or higher would have received an invitation to apply for Express Entry.

New Priority Occupations for Express Entry

On May 31st, 2023, IRCC announced a new method of category-based selection for Express Entry which allows Canada to extend invitations (ITAs) to apply to prospective permanent residents who have specified skills, training, or language ability. These draws began on June 28, 2023 and we can expect to see these types of draws continuing throughout the year.

What Is Express Entry?

Express Entry is an immigration system created by the IRCC to manage Canada PR applicants looking to work in Canada. This system allows applicants to apply for one of four categories which include the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), or a Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs). Each draw will be specific to one of these categories targeting qualified and eligible candidates within the Express Entry pool!

Fast Track Immigration Through PNPs

If you are interested in settling in a specific province, you may have a better chance and quicker results when applying for a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This allows provinces and territories to nominate qualified candidates to work in that location. If you are working within an in-demand job, it could be even quicker! Learn more about Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

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.

Improving Your CRS Score

If you need help improving your CRS score before the next Express Entry Draw, here are 8 ways to improve your CRS score.  More invitations are expected to be issued over the coming weeks, months, and years, benefiting individuals and families around the world wishing to make Canada their new permanent home. The Comprehensive Ranking System is a score out of 1,200 used to benchmark federal economic applicants against one another. It’s part of the Express Entry mechanism, which was established in January 2015 to process residency applications. The score is used as a cut-off point in Express Entry draws. It is designed to project a candidate’s likelihood of being economically successful in Canada.

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
