Newsteps Immigration Solutions, Surrey, Canada – The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has recently released the results of the latest Express Entry draw held on February 15, 2023. A total of 699 invitations were issued for the Canadian permanent residence applicants in this draw.
Similar to the previous draw held on February 1, this draw has also only invited the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) applicants. It is the second PNP-only draw of 2023, and the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for this draw was 791, which is up by 58 points from the last PNP-only draw that took place two weeks ago, where the minimum CRS score was 733.
The Express Entry applicants can expect another draw in around two weeks if there is no follow-up draw tomorrow for candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), which would mirror IRCC’s process from the last time Canada conducted a PNP-only draw earlier this month.
To be selected in an Express Entry draw, interested foreign skilled workers must verify that they are eligible for at least one of the three programs that fall under the Express Entry application management system. After confirming eligibility, candidates can proceed to submit an electronic candidate profile through IRCC’s online portal. During each draw, IRCC will invite foreign nationals with a CRS score above the draw’s cut-off to apply for Canadian PR.
Those who receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) will have 60 days to complete and submit their electronic Application for Permanent Residence online to IRCC.
