Canada Express Entry Draw – November 13, 2015


As of January 1, 2015, foreign nationals must receive an invitation from CIC before they may apply to the above programs. Express Entry eliminates the requirement to process applicants in these programs through a first come first serve basis. CIC aims to process 80 percent of complete Express Entry applications in six months or less. Quebec’s economic immigration programs are not managed through Express Entry.

Under Express Entry, candidates who meet the criteria will be accepted into a pool of possible candidates for immigration to Canada. Candidates will be ranked against others in the pool using a point-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will regularly select the highest-ranking candidates from the pool by inviting them to apply to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents.

CIC will invite candidates from the Express Entry pool to apply on a regular basis. Every round of invitations will have a set of instructions the electronic system will use to invite candidates from the pool.

The most recent Express Entry draw was conducted on November 13, 2015 with 1,506 ITA’s and a lowest CRS score of 484

We put together a summary of the round of invitations during 2015, along with the number of candidates that will get an Invitation to Apply (ITA), and if it applies, which specific immigration program(s) are included.
