Express Entry Round of Invitations

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) ranks potential candidates in the pool using a points-based system called the CRS score calculator. In an Express Entry invitation round, IRCC -

  • Chooses the type of draw,
  • Decides the number of candidates,
  • Identifies the highest-ranking candidates, and
  • Invites them to apply for Canada PR. 

Types of Rounds of Invitations

IRCC holds different types of rounds of invitations throughout the year.

  • General rounds of  invitations

In general rounds of invitations, IRCC invites highest-ranking candidates in the pool who are eligible for 1 of the 3 programs managed through Express Entry i.e. Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

  • Program-specific rounds of invitations

In program-specific rounds of invitations, IRCC invites highest-ranking candidates who are eligible for a specific Express Entry program linked with a Provincial Nominee Program.

  • Category-based rounds of invitations

For category-based Express Entry draws, Sean Fraser, Canada’s Immigration Minister, establishes a category to meet a specific economic goal. IRCC then invites highest-ranking candidates in the pool who are eligible for the targeted category.

New Category-Based Draws For Express Entry

Sean Fraser, Canada's Minister of Immigration, announced on May 31 that the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has finalized new categories for selecting candidates in Express Entry draws. These categories were chosen after considering labor market predictions and consulting with various partners, stakeholders, provincial and territorial governments. The categories for selection are:

  • French-language proficiency
  • Healthcare occupations
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) occupations
  • Trade occupations
  • Transport occupations
  • Agriculture and Agri-Food occupations

Category-based selection draws have been expected since June 2022 when the Government of Canada amended the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. These changes allow the selection of immigrants based on specific attributes that align with Canada's economic priorities, such as having relevant work experience to address labor market needs or having knowledge of the French language.
