Updated May 10 2023
Abstract: On March 2, 2022, Canada issued 1,047 ITAs in the Express Entry pool to apply for permanent residency in Canada.


  • The Express Entry draw held on March 2, 2022, issued 1,047 ITAs.
  • Canada is not holding any new all-program draws. It is concentrating on the pending applications.
  • The minimum score was high for the candidates because 600 points are added to the score automatically when they are nominated.
Only 1, 047 people amongst the PNP or Provincial Nominee Program were issued ITAs or invitation to apply. The draw was conducted on March 2, 2022. The ITAs were issued by the IRCC or ImmigrationRefugees, and Citizenship Canada.

The Scores for the Express Entry ITA

This time, the CRS or Comprehensive Ranking System cut-off was 761. The score was higher because 600 points were added automatically to their score when the candidates received a nomination. Without the added points, the lowest scoring person would score 161 points. *Check your eligibility to Canada with Y-Axis Canada Immigration Points Calculator.

The Canadian Immigration Minister,in his words...

The Immigration Minister of Canada, Sean Fraser, says that the draws for skilled workers will be resumed soon. No definite date is scheduled for the resumption of draws for the skilled workers. He also added that the government wanted to integrate flexibility into the system of Express Entry. The Express Entry draw could be utilized to cater to urgent short-term needs like the needs of small communities and specific in-demand fields. It is expected that by 2024 the targets for skilled workers will return to normal. It had been halved in the Immigration Plan for 2022-24. The new targets are set to change in the 2023-25 fall plans of immigration levels. Canada has not been conducting draws for the FSWP or Federal Skilled Worker Program pool since December 2020. The last draw for the CEC or Canadian Experience Class  immigrants was held in September 2021. The minister also suggested that Express Entry draws which are occupation-specific can be added in the future. Do you need any assistance to apply for Canada Express Entry?
