Record number of EE draws in July 2023

In the month of July 2023, the IRCC opened record six express entry draws, out of which, four draws were occupation-specific draws. It will be interesting to see whether month of August 2023 sees the same number of draws or not. 

The IRCC has recently started conducting the category-based draws. This is one of the reason that July month saw multiple draws. In category-based draws to be conducted in the year 2023, the IRCC will focus on inviting candidates under below categories:

  • Strong French language skills
  • healthcare
  • science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professions
  • trades, such as carpenters, plumbers and contractors
  • transport
  • agriculture and Agri-food

Hence, if you have experience in any of the occupations or you are proficient in French language, you may get the ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) Visa even with low CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score.

If you wish to immigrate to Canada this year, you may check your eligibility for Express Entry or any other relevant Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) to apply for PR visa in Canada.
