Express Entry Draw: #272 - Apply For Canada Immigration

IRCC has announced its #272nd express entry draw, where 4,750 invitations have been sent to express entry applicants with a valid express entry profile and a job seeker validation code.

If you have applied for Canadian PR and scored more than 561 then you should check your CIC account.

The minimum C.R.S. score required is 561. On this Express Entry Draw, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued 1,025 more ITAs from the previous General Express Entry draw.

What's Behind IRCC's Extended Express Entry Draw?

There are various reasons for express entry draw delay. In November 2023, there were no invitations to apply for permanent residence under the Express Entry system.

IRCC is continuously committed to streamlining the immigration application process, minimising potential errors, and ensuring a smooth and efficient client processing experience.

This is to inform you that the Express Entry Profile Builder has undergone modifications by the Department, and the system now records:

  • Postal code of the location of your job offer
  • Province or territory, and postal code of your primary residence in Canada
