The Canadian government conducts an Express Entry draw approximately every two weeks. Most recently it has been a trend that the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has been conducting the Express Entry draw date on a fortnightly basis which is about every 15 days majority on Wednesday. The frequency of 15 days might change but a minimum of two express entry draws occur in a month.

When Is the Next Express Entry Draw Date?

The latest Express Entry Draw was #170 on December 23, 2020. The 170th draw offered 5,000 ITA to those with a cut off CRS score of 468. This draw was not targeted towards any specific Express Entry program.

Due to the coronavirus/COVID-19, many things in immigration can be unpredictable but we assume that the next date will be two weeks from the previous one.

Due to the Coronavirus the next draw date may be sporadic and not exactly every two weeks. Stay up to date on the latest news on the Coronavirus/COVID-19.

How Immigration Consultant Can Help You Get Into Express Entry?

The most important aspect of the Express Entry Program is to provide complete and accurate information/documentation and get an ITA. Without an invitation, you are unable to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry Program. In order to receive an invitation, you have to be selected from a pool of applicants who are competing for an invitation.

Our job is to make your profile STAND OUT from the crowd. The lawyer will assess your case, highlight the best aspects of your application, and make sure that you have obtained the highest eligible score! This way, your chances of getting an invitation are maximized.
