On October 26th, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held their most recent Express Entry draw. The results of this draw again saw Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores fall. The minimum score has dropped by 4 points to 496, marking the first time the minimum score has fallen under 500 since December 2020. Over 4,750 invitations to apply for permanent residency were sent by the IRCC this time around, an increase of 500 invitations from the previous draw on October 12th. Making the October 26th draw the fifth draw in a row to increase in a row to have growth of 500 invitations. 

IRCC cited the critical labour shortage in the Canadian economy as the primary reason for the increase. IRCC states that these new targets will assist with ending labour shortages in vital economic sectors. IRCC also intends to bring more immigrants to rural and smaller communities throughout the country.  

IRCC is continuing to work on digitizing and streamlining various aspects of the immigration system to increase processing times. Given the unprecedented backlog by IRCC, there is hope that this change will assist in solving this fundamental issue.
