Latest Express Entry draw 2023

The latest Express Entry draw in 2023 took place recently, bringing some significant changes and updates to the immigration system in Canada, such as the category-based express entry draw. With the aim of attracting skilled immigrants to contribute to the Canadian economy, the Express Entry program has been a popular pathway for individuals seeking permanent residency in the country.
In this latest draw, the Comprehensive Ranking System (C.R.S.) score requirement has slightly increased compared to the previous express entry draw #252, which was the First Occupation specific express entry draw . This means more candidates who meet the eligibility criteria have been invited to apply for permanent residency. The C.R.S. score is calculated based on age, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other factors.
