What is Express Entry?

Express Entry is a system managed by IRCC for selecting skilled workers for immigration to Canada. Candidates are ranked through a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which considers factors like work experience, education, language skills, and age. Individuals with the highest CRS scores receive invitations to apply for permanent residence.

Significance of the draw:

This draw presents a significant opportunity for individuals with strong French language skills and aspirations to immigrate to Canada. With a relatively low CRS cut-off score compared to recent general draws, it opens doors for a wider pool of French-speaking candidates to be considered for permanent residency.
