Process of Express Entry Draw in issuing invitations to candidates


Candidates are ranked according to their human capital traits using the Comprehensive Ranking System. This includes factors such as age, occupation, work experience, education, and language proficiency. Candidates are ranked against one another after each attribute is given a score.

ITAs may also be awarded to Express Entry candidates in any of the three programmes in a category-based selection draw that focuses on a particular attribute. This type includes six categories which are Healthcare, STEM, Trade, Transportation, Agriculture and Agri-food, and fluency in French.

The candidates with the highest CRS score are most likely to receive an ITA in an upcoming Express Entry draw, regardless of the program or kind of draw.

Canada’s Immigration levels plan 2024 – 2026

According to the Immigration Levels Plan 2024 – 2026, 110,000 new permanent residents will be admitted to Canada via Express Entry in 2024.


This is a surge from the 82,880 targeted Express Entry candidates in 2023. However, the high target does not necessarily mean that every applicant invited in 2024 will be accepted before the year ends. Some will arrive in 2025, particularly those who are invited later in the year.
