What are the Latest Canada Express Entry Draws?

Express Entry draws helps access the candidate's ability with the CRS score that is decided by the IRCC.

The most promising and convenient pathway of Canada Permanent Residency is the Express Entry Program. Since 2015, there are thousands of applicants who have resorted to the Express entry pathway for immigration. The subcategories are three –

  • Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)


Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSWP) is also called a 67 Point calculator as the applicant needs to achieve 67 points for selection. This stream is for those skilled workers who have never lived in Canada before. The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) helps the people who already have Canadian work experience immigrate, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) allows the people with trade occupations to relocate to Canada like Truck drivers.

Immigration to Canada through most of the pathways is point-based. The applicant is expected to meet a particular point score before they relocate. The points are mode to test the ability of the applicant in quantified terms. The calculation is done through the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) tool and is based on various selection factors like Age, language skill, Work experience, and education, etc.

Let us look at some of these factors in detail for a more precise understanding –
  • Age- The applicant who are young and aged between 18 to 35 achieve the maximum score
  • Language skills- The candidate needs to take the language test in English or French language, and those getting high scores in the examination can get high CRS points.
  • Work experience – those with high work experience can get high scores. Having more experience can help you attain a high score and also make it easier for you to get a job in Canada.
  • Adaptability –Having a sibling or spouse in Canada can help you get extra points

  • Arranged employment- Having a job offer for immigration is not mandatory, but there are extra points if you have an offer in hand.


The Express Entry Draws

The applicants who wish to immigrate through the express entry channel can register themselves and enter the express entry pool. From the pool, the applicants are evaluated based on the selection factors, and a point score is allotted to each applicant. At the same time, the IRCC decides the selection CRS score by conducting eth Express entry draws. These draws are conducted after every fortnight and are the benchmark score. The appellants who meet this benchmark score or achieve higher points are shortlisted for immigration and provided an ITA (Invitation to Apply). This ITA needs to be replied to in 90 days' time.

Canada's government has high plans for immigration as per the Canada Immigration Plan 2019 – 2021, and it is expected that there will be more than one million new Permanent Residency (PR) holders in the country. Most of the immigrations will be through economic pathways. Despite the COVID 19 pandemic, the country has aimed to meet its immigration targets and have consistently held draws.
