Express Entry draw 282

On February 1, 2024, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held a new Express Entry draw 282 for French language proficiency candidates. In round #282, IRCC issued 7,000 Invitations to Apply (ITA) to francophone candidates. 

The cut-off score of this draw was 365 points, 105 points fewer than the previous draw for this category. The tie-breaking rule for this round was September 8, 2023, at 09:47:27 UTC.

Express Entry in 2023

In 2023, Canada’s Express Entry application management system underwent significant transformations. Throughout the year’s first half, Express Entry maintained several patterns established in 2022, resuming draws after an 18-month hiatus. These draws encompassed various formats, including all-program draws, Provincial Nominee Program-only draws, and, on one occasion, the draw exclusively for Federal Skilled Workers. 

May marked the introduction of six new categories for Express Entry draws by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This change allowed targeted draws for specific occupations like healthcare, STEM, transport, etc., to address labor market needs.
