Highlights of Express Entry Draw 271

Date of Draw: October 26, 2023

Number of Invitations Issued: 3,600

Minimum CRS: 431

Program Specified: Healthcare occupations (2023-1)

The third category-specific draw for healthcare occupations occurred today, showcasing the Canadian government’s ability to target candidates with skills and occupations in high demand. This approach tends to result in a lower cut-off score compared to all-program draws, providing a broader range of profiles and experiences an opportunity for selection, taking into account factors beyond just CRS scores.

This draw marks the third in a series of category-specific draws for healthcare workers, with the previous one taking place on July 6th as Draw #255. Since the introduction of Healthcare Occupations (2023-1) on June 28, 2023, we’ve witnessed a consistent 300% increase in the number of invitations issued with each subsequent category draw. This growth is due to a 22.5-point reduction in the minimum required score since the category’s initial draw, resulting in more eligible profiles within the Express Entry candidate pool. The category has now reached its maximum of 3,600 invitations.

Express Entry draw 271 granted 3,600 Invitations to Apply (ITA) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 431. All candidates in this draw were selected from a specific set of healthcare occupations within the Express Entry pool.
