What is the Express Entry Draw?

Express Entry is an online system that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) uses to manage immigration applications from skilled workers.

During Express Entry draws, IRCC selects candidates from the Express Entry pool and invites them to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

What is a CRS score?

All Express Entry candidates get a score out of 1,200, based on the four parts of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) formula.

IRCC invites the highest-ranking candidates from the Express Entry pool to apply for permanent residence.
