Express Entry: Invitations To Apply Issued

The following table displays information about Express Entry draws that have taken place so far. This information will be updated after each draw is made.

Express Entry is not an immigration program in itself, but rather a system used by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to select candidates for immigration to Canada using the following economic immigration programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker
  • Federal Skilled Trades
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • a portion of the Provincial Nominee Programs

Express Entry draws will either be:

  • general, in which case candidates eligible for any federal economic immigration program may be selected based solely on their CRS score; or
  • program-specific, in which case the government of Canada will select candidates for just one of the federal economic immigration programs.
