Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has invited candidates in the third Express Entry draw of the week.
The department issued 5,900 invitations to apply (ITAs) in a category-based selection draw for candidates with professional experience in STEM related professions.
Candidates required a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 481 to be considered.
Today’s draw is the third of the week. Yesterday, December 7th, IRCC invited 1,000 candidates with a CRS of 470, in a targeted draw for individuals with proficiency in French. The day before (Dec. 6th) 4,750 candidates with a CRS score of 561 were invited in an all-program draw.
This week’s draws were the first Express Entry draws in more than a month. The earliest draw prior took place on October 26 and invited 3,600 candidates with a CRS score of 431 in a category-based selection draw for healthcare occupations.
On November 14, IRCC tweeted that candidates who had received ITAs in recent draws were unable to upload their final application to the Express Entry profile builder. A follow-up tweet two days later said the problem had been resolved but no reason was confirmed for the longer pause.
