Year End Analysis of Express Entry in 2023

The Express Entry application management system underwent major modifications in 2023 as a result of a year-end analysis.

After an 18-month break, Express Entry resumed in the early half of 2023, maintaining many of the patterns set in 2022. There were three types of draws: all program, Provincial Nominee Program only, and, in one case, Federal Skilled Workers exclusively.

On June 28, category-based selection draws were launched, with 500 healthcare professionals being invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada in the first draw. Through these category-based selections, almost 16,000 Express Entry hopefuls were invited in the aftermath.

Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) were among the 42 measures that made immigration to Canada easier in 2023. All program drawings (19), Provincial Nominee Program draws (5), Federal Skilled Worker Program draw (1), and category-based selection draws (17) are the several categories into which the draws can be divided. FSTP candidates were surprisingly not sent any special invitations during the year.

In terms of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores, the distribution of data from January to September 2023 was as follows:

  • 26,070 applicants had CRS ratings between 451 and 500.
  • 11,640 individuals with CRS ratings ranging from 501 to 600.
  • 12,590 applicants having CRS scores in the 900–1200 range.

Determining the CRS scores for each sort of draw:

The lowest CRS score for all-program draws was 691 (589 invitations), while the highest was 791 (699 invitations).

There were minimum CRS scores of 481 (7,000 invitations) and maximum CRS scores of 561 (4,750 invitations) for the Provincial Nominee Program draws.

A minimum CRS score of 489 was required for the Federal Skilled Worker Program draw (3,300 invitations).

The lowest CRS score (354; 600 invitations) and highest (486; 800 invitations) were seen in category-based selection draws.

According to the Canada Immigration Levels Plan 2024–2026, Canada hopes to accept 110,000 new permanent residents through Express Entry by the year 2024. The department sent out 110,266 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) between January 11 and December 21, 2023, compared to the target of 82,880 candidates.
