Express Entry Draws in August 2023
Three draws were held in August 2023 and invited a total of 4300 candidates over various categories.
Express Entry Program
Express Entry (EE) is an online system for immigration applications, providing individuals the opportunity to submit their profiles for consideration as skilled immigrants. The selection process prioritizes candidates with the highest rankings, who are subsequently invited to apply for permanent residency. The Express Entry Program was introduced by the Canadian Government in 2015 to tackle the skilled labor shortage in Canada. The old Canada Immigration System was slow and had a lot of backlogs. The sole purpose of the new system is to immigrate skilled professionals in a faster way. The Express Entry system has now become the most popular immigration system globally.
Category-Based Express Entry Draw
Sean Fraser, Canada’s former Immigration Minister, has announced the implementation of category-based express entry draw targeting Express Entry candidates. These draws aim to attract a greater number of highly skilled professionals specializing in specific occupations that are in high demand within Canada.
The categories under the Express Entry Programs are:
- Healthcare occupations
- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) occupations
- Trade occupations
- Transport occupations
- Agriculture and Agri-food occupations
- French-language proficiency
IRCC reviews these categories each year and may change them in the next year.
