Express Entry Draw #273: 1,000 Invitations Issued

Express Entry Draw #273: 1,000 Invitations Issued

On December 7, 2023, the Ministerial Instructions about invitations for permanent residence under the #273 Express Entry system were issued. A total of 1,000 invitations were extended in this round, with candidates holding a rank of 1,000 or above being eligible to apply.

The specific date and time of the round were recorded as December 07, 2023 (at 16:35:25 UTC).

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of the lowest-ranked candidate invited stood at 470. In the event of multiple candidates having the same lowest score, the tie-breaking rule was applied based on the date and time of their Express Entry profile submission, with the cut-off set at October 03, 2023 (at 04:45:27 UTC).

The following information includes the number of invitations distributed and the CRS’s minimal score:

  • Criteria: French language proficiency
  • Total number of invitations sent: 1,000
  • Minimum CRS Score: 470
  • Tie-breaking rule: October 03, 2023 (at 04:45:27 UTC)

Will the CRS no longer be used for Express Entry in 2024?

While the IRCC is anticipated to shift its focus to target applicants based on specific in-demand qualities in Canada’s economy, the CRS score will still be a crucial factor in Express Entry draws in 2024. Candidates will continue to receive invitations without consideration of specific categories, encompassing both general and program-specific draws. Express Entry pool candidates meeting category requirements will be ranked, and top candidates will be invited to apply for permanent residence.

What will be the Canada PR processing time in 2024?

The processing time for Canada Permanent Resident (PR) applications varies based on factors such as the PR program, application completeness, processing volume, and additional security or medical checks. The entire Canada PR processing time ranges from 12 to 24 months, involving stages from receiving the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to obtaining the Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and relocating to Canada, each with recorded processing times.
