September 26, 2023: Insights into Canada’s Latest Express Entry Draw Outcomes

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has been so active this week, having carried out a series of two Express Entry draws. Keep an eye on this article to know about the insights of the most recent draws.

By the past September 26, IRCC sent an amount of 600 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to candidates seeking Canadian immigration. What’s noteworthy is that this draw represented Canada’s first category-based selection for individuals with recent experience in agriculture and agri-food roles. The qualifying candidates for this draw held a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 354. That is why this draw differs from the usual all-program Express Entry draws. The all-program draws encompass candidates from all three programs within the Express Entry application management system: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

In the following section, we’ll summarize the Express Entry draw results from the previous two rounds held on September 27th & 28th.
