Express Entry Draws: Full List

Express Entry draws are typically conducted at regular two-week intervals, on a Wednesday. The timing, frequency, and CRS score of these draws are determined by the IRCC - and can vary depending on various factors including, the Canadian economy, labor market, and the immigration targets set in the Canada Immigration Level Plans for 2023-2025.

If you’ve been invited

If the IRCC has invited you to apply for Canada PR in this invitation round, you’ll receive a message in your account notifying you:

  • which program you've been invited to apply for
  • what to do next

You will need to show proof of the information provided in your Express Entry profile. If the IRCC finds you have submitted false information or left out important details, they could:

  • refuse your application
  • find you inadmissible
  • ban you for 5 years from applying for any type of Canadian visa

Next, you can check eligibility to apply for Canada PR for the program you’ve been invited to apply under – and make sure you’re still eligible. By thoroughly understanding the program requirements and prerequisites – you will be more prepared to apply.
