An all-program Express Entry draw was held by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and 4,750 invitations to apply (ITAs) were issued.

Candidates required a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 561 to be considered.

Candidate applications for permanent residence under the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class and Federal Skilled Trades Program are processed through Express Entry.

Through Express Entry, candidates are evaluated using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The system does this by assigning points to candidates based on their collective human capital attributes. This includes factors such as work experience, language ability, occupation, education, and age. Each factor is worth a specific point value.

The recent draw marks the first such event since October 26. Notably, on November 14, the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) took to Twitter to address concerns raised by applicants encountering difficulties with the Express Entry Profile Builder. According to their tweet, some applicants were experiencing issues that prevented them from successfully submitting their applications.

The nature of the challenges faced by applicants using the Express Entry Profile Builder is not explicitly detailed in the provided information. However, the fact that the IRCC acknowledged and addressed the issues swiftly suggests a commitment to ensuring a smooth and accessible application process for candidates in the Express Entry system.

A category-based selection draw for healthcare occupations issued ITAs to 3,600 candidates on October 26. Candidates required a minimum CRS score of 431 to qualify.

A category-based selection draw was held on October 25, and on October 24, IRCC issued invitations to 1,548 eligible candidates for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
