Candidates from FSWP, FSTP, and CEC streams participated in the Express Entry draw. In case 2 or more candidates have the lowest score, the score considered as the cut-off will be decided on the basis of the date and time the candidates submitted their Express Entry profiles.

It’s interesting to note that the minimum score requirements are decreasing and the number of invitations issued is increasing with every draw conducted by the IRCC. In the last 3 draws conducted in August 2022, the minimum score requirements decreased from 533 to 525 to 516. At the same time, the number of invitations sent in those 3 federal Express Entry draws had increased from 2,000 to 2,250 to 2,750.

This is reflective of the fact that Canada requires lots of skilled immigrants. These people are instrumental in meeting the worker shortage in the country. In turn, they get the opportunity to join well-paid jobs and enjoy high living standards.
