Express Entry: IRCC invites 700 candidates in surprise all-program draw

IRCC has invited 700 candidates in the most recent Express Entry draw.  

It was an all-program draw and candidates required a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 511. 

This draw comes as a surprise as Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has said it will invite 1,500 healthcare workers via category-based selection tomorrow, July 5. In addition, it is expected IRCC will also invite candidates with work experience in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) occupations in the first-ever category-based selection Express Entry draw for STEM professions. It remains to be seen what the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score will be required for healthcare and STEM candidates.

Last week, on June 28, IRCC held the first-ever Express Entry category-based draw, inviting 500 healthcare workers with a minimum CRS score of 476. On that same date, IRCC announced it would be inviting STEM professionals in a category-based Express Entry round this week.
