express entry draw


Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced a much-needed boost for the country’s healthcare system. Through a targeted Express Entry draw, they invited a substantial number of healthcare workers – 3,750 – to apply for permanent residence.

To be considered for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in this draw, candidates needed a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 445. This score represents a point threshold based on factors like work experience, education, language proficiency, and age. While the CRS cut-off can fluctuate in general draws, this targeted selection for healthcare workers indicates a strategic move by IRCC to attract qualified professionals even if their overall CRS score might be lower than usual.

This targeted draw for healthcare workers is the second category-based draw for the week, following the July 4th draw for skilled trades. Combined with the high number of ITAs issued (3,750), it demonstrates a clear focus by the Canadian government on addressing critical labor shortages in these sectors.

For healthcare professionals with a CRS score of 445 or above and an interest in immigrating to Canada, this is a positive development. It’s a good time to review your Express Entry profile and ensure it’s up-to-date to increase your chances of receiving an ITA in future draws.

The high number of invitations (ITAs) issued reflects the government’s commitment to addressing labor shortages within the healthcare sector. By inviting a significant pool of healthcare candidates, IRCC aims to strengthen Canada’s healthcare system and ensure Canadians continue to receive high-quality medical care.

This targeted draw is a positive sign for healthcare workers around the world who aspire to immigrate to Canada. If you’re a healthcare professional considering a move to Canada, check your eligibility for Express Entry and consider creating a profile to enter the pool of candidates. With Canada actively seeking to strengthen its medical workforce, this could be your opportunity to build a rewarding career in a new country.
