July 7, 2023 – The latest Express Entry draw conducted by Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has resulted in 2,300 candidates receiving invitations to apply for permanent residence. This draw, specifically focused on French language proficiency, aims to attract individuals who possess strong French language skills and contribute to Canada’s bilingual society.
To be eligible for an invitation, candidates needed to have a rank of 2,300 or above. The draw took place on July 7, 2023, at 13:11:16 UTC, and the CRS score of the lowest-ranked candidate invited was 439.
In cases where multiple candidates had the same CRS score, the tie-breaking rule was applied. For this draw, the tie-breaking rule was set at January 20, 2023, at 17:18:32 UTC. The cut-off was determined based on the date and time the candidates submitted their Express Entry profiles, ensuring fairness and transparency in the selection process.
The Express Entry system continues to play a crucial role in attracting skilled individuals to Canada and facilitating their pathway to permanent residence. By targeting candidates with French language proficiency, the IRCC aims to enhance Canada’s linguistic diversity and promote bilingualism across the country.
