Express Entry Update: Draw #283 Opens Doors for 1,490 Canada-Bound Profiles

February 14, 2024 – Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) conducted the 283rd Express Entry draw on February 13th, 2024, issuing 1,490 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to hopeful candidates in the pool. This draw marks the second general draw of February and signifies Canada’s continued commitment to attracting skilled immigrants.

Key Taakeaways:

  • Draw Type: General (Open to all Express Entry programs)
  • Number of ITAs Issued: 1,490
  • Minimum CRS Score: 535
  • Date of Draw: February 13, 2024

A Positive Sign for Potential Immigrants:

The relatively low CRS score cut-off of 535 indicates a good opportunity for eligible candidates to receive an ITA. This is especially encouraging after the previous general draw in January saw a higher score requirement of 541.

What this means for you:

  • If your CRS score is equal to or above 535 and you were in the Express Entry pool at the time of the draw, you may have received an ITA.
  • If you received an ITA, congratulations! You now have 60 days to submit a complete and accurate application for permanent residence.
  • If your score falls below 535, there are still ways to improve your profile and potentially be considered in future draws.

Looking Ahead:

The next Express Entry draw is expected to take place Soon. However, the specific details, including whether it will be a general or program-specific draw, are yet to be announced.
