Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is conducting its 46th Express Entry draw through tomorrow.

• IRCC will issue 2,080 invitations to those candidates who have submitted a profile to apply for permanent residence. This is yet another increase from the 1,804 invitations issued in the last draw.
• The minimum qualifying score for this draw is 472.

The frequency and size of Express Entry draws are at the discretion of IRCC.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

Candidates may wish to seek their employer's assistance to apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or a Provincial Nomination (PN) in order to increase their score if necessary. Having an LMIA or PN adds 600 points to an existing score. Applicants without an LMIA or PN would have to wait for the next draw to see whether their score is high enough to receive an Invitation to Apply.
