This is the tenth draw since the all-event draw resumed on 6 July.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued invitations to 4,750 candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 494. Qualified candidates were invited from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and the Federal. Skilled Trades Program (FSTP). All are programs that work under the Express Entry system.
The Express Entry All-Program draw was put on hold for more than 18 months, starting December 2020. During the pause, only CEC or Provincial Enrolled Program (PNP) candidates were issued Invitations to Apply (ITAs). The draws were put on hold due to backlog in applications due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions. In September 2021, the IRCC also stopped the draw for the CEC.
The draw is the second consecutive one to invite 4,750 candidates, which is in line with the draw held on October 26. There was also a decrease of only two points in the minimum CRS, down from 496, the smallest drop since the resumption of the all-program draw.

CIC Updates recently obtained data from IRCC which shows how ITAs have been issued in all Express Entry programs since the resumption on 6th July. In all, 26,250 candidates have received invitations through Express Entry.
The majority, 13,774, are from the CEC. Eligible candidates in this program have already had at least one year of living or working in Canada within 36 months of their application date and have a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of 5 or NOC skill level 0 for NOC B jobs Or the CLB for A is 7.

Immigration Level Plan 2023-2025
On November 1, IRCC released the Immigration Level Plan 2023-2025. It serves as a guideline for immigration programs in all areas of business and provides targets for the number of immigrants who will be granted permanent resident status. The 2023-2025 plan targets 500,000 new permanent residents in Canada per year through the end of 2025.
In 2023, 82,880 immigrants will be admitted to Canada as permanent residents through Express Entry. The 2024 target is 109,020 and 114,000 for 2025, or about a fifth of Canada’s total immigration targets. These goals highlight the importance that Canada places on economic immigration due to the ongoing labor shortage in Canada. Immigration is responsible for 90% of labor force growth in Canada and about 75% of population growth.
Target for Express Entry candidates ranks second among economic immigration programs, surpassed only by PNP.
What is Express Entry?
Express Entry is the application management system for three Canadian immigration programs: Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP). Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates in the Express Entry Pool are already eligible for at least one of these programs.
Express Entry uses the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), a points-based system, to rank the profiles of candidates. Top scoring candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and can then apply for permanent residency.
After a candidate has applied, an IRCC official reviews the applications and decides whether they have been approved. Once this is completed, if approved, the candidate is now a permanent resident of Canada and one step closer to becoming a Canadian citizen.
