The Government of Canada issued 4,200 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence to Express Entry candidates in a draw held September 2.
Federal Skilled Worker Program candidates were among today’s successful candidates. The latest Express Entry draw was the third all-program draw since March 18 and the 162nd overall held by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score in this latest invitation round was 475, a decrease of 1 point over the previous all-program draw held August 5.
The 4,200 invitations to apply for permanent residence is the most issued in an Express Entry round since 4,500 were issued prior to the coronavirus pandemic during the February 19, 2020 invitation round. The large number of invitations issued today is a strong indication that Canada remains committed to welcoming high levels of immigration in 2021 and beyond.
