Express entry draw analysis

The higher CUT OFF in this particular invitation round is because of the PNP specific draw, as the invited candidates already had provincial nomination and 600 points obtained based on the same. 

However, this higher CRS score requirement from the IRCC is expected to drop again for the Category-based EE draws. The IRCC has started conducting the category based draws of the EE system, hence, the candidates who fall under the given categories are receiving the Canada PR invitation despite the low CRS score. Find below the categories chosen by IRCC for the 2023 category-based EE draws:

  • French language proficiency?.
  • Healthcare;?
  • STEM professions;?
  • Trades?;?
  • Transport;?
  • Agriculture and agri-food?
