Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has conducted a new draw. The department conducts Express Entry draws on a bi-weekly basis - with some exceptions. This was the first draw conducted by IRCC in April.

The Express Entry latest draw was held on April 10, 2024. A total of 1,280 candidates with a CRS score of 549 were invited across a General Draw. In a General Draw, candidates from all three Express Entry streams were invited.

General Express Entry Draws: Who is eligible?

In general rounds of invitations, IRCC invites the top-ranking candidates from the pool who are eligible for programs managed through the Express Entry Program.

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Provincial Nominee Program

There is no one-size-fits-all type of profile, which is eligible for a Canada PR in an all-program Express Entry draw. Candidates are ranked and selected based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS includes factors such as Age, Language Proficiency, Education, Work Experience, and more. Candidates with the highest scores are invited to apply for Canada PR in a subsequent Express Entry draw.

Express Entry all-program draws play a crucial role in Canada's goal to welcome skilled workers who can contribute to the country's economy and society.

Minimum CRS score required for Canada PR

The minimum CRS score required to apply for Canada PR in 2024 according to the Express Entry latest draw is 549. There is no fixed score, but candidates with higher CRS scores have better chances. It is essential to regularly check official updates from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or an immigration consultant, as CRS score requirements can change.
