Express Entry System draws

Express Entry is a popular Canada immigration program that allows skilled workers from all around the world to apply for Canadian PR visa. The program uses a points-based system to assess the applicants based on key factors, including age, education, work experience, and language proficiency, etc.. The top ranking candidates are then invited to apply for permanent residency through regular Express Entry draws.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score required to get an ITA in this draw was 481 points. This means that applicants, who had a CRS score of 481 or higher, based on their education, work experience, language proficiency, and other such factors, were invited to apply for permanent residency.

Candidates who received an ITA in this draw have 60 days to submit their complete PR application. During this period, applicants would require providing other key documents, i.e. proof of their education and work experience, as well as medical and police clearance certificates, etc.
