  • Canada conducts largest first draw of the year in Express Entry history

The Government of Canada kicked off the new Express Entry year in impressive style Thursday, issuing 3,900 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence to candidates with scores as low as 449.  

This was the highest number of invitations issued in a first draw of the year in Express Entry’s five-year history, marking the start of a 12-month cycle that is expected to see Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) break last year’s Express Entry record of 89,800 Invitations to Apply (ITAs).
