Canada held an unheard-of Express Entry draws inviting tens of thousands of candidates to apply for permanent residence.
Canada invited 27,332 candidates to apply for permanent residence in its latest Express Entry draw— you read that right.
Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) on February 13. This unprecedented Express Entry invitation round only required candidates to have a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 75— the lowest CRS requirement ever.
“This goes to show Canada is committed to achieving its goal of welcoming over 400,000 immigrants this year.”
