Jan 12,2023

Latest Update on Canada Immigration - First Express Entry Draw of 2023 Declared

After waiting for almost one and a half months, Canada declares the first draw of the new year on January 11, 2023. The latest draw invited 5500 candidates from all program categories. However, many aspirants were expecting that CRS may go down but the actual CRS goes up by 16 points. This high CRS may disappoint many but hopes are still alive.

Highlights of the Latest Express Entry Draw 2023

  • The latest EE draw #237 is held on January 11, 2023, and invited 5500 candidates with the CRS cut-off of 507 points.
  • On one side, the IRCC nominated 750 more candidates than in the previous draw.
  • On the other end, the cut-off points were raised by 16 points. The numbers of the latest draw may confuse several candidates.
  • According to the analysis the particular draw invited 750 more candidates than the previous draw, because of some specific reasons.
  • The first is a gap. The previous draw was held on November 23, 2022. The gap of almost one and a half months added some eligible applicants.
  • Secondly, though IRCC paused on the draw but the provincial nominations were working. As a result, 600 CRS points were added in plenty of aspirants.
  • Due to such reasons, the IRCC has got the targeted nomination and that is why they declared the draw with such high cut-off CRS points.

Conclusion

The increasing CRS scores may frustrate the candidates who looking to migrate to Canada permanently. However, patience seems the only option that may give a positive outcome in the future. Because Canada needs skilled migrants and that is a fact. Secondly, as per the government data, more than 1.5 million immigrants are already required by the year 2025 (according to the Immigration Levels Plan). On the other end, to enhance the possibility of Canada PR, candidates are advised to enhance their skills because eventually, only skilled people will be nominated. As a candidate, you can enhance your skills in language (English or French), additional education (Post-Graduation or Master’s), focus on Provincial Nominee Programs or even a Canada Study Visa. As the challenging time is going on for Canada immigration, still you may overcome with your efforts.
