Express Entry Breaking: CRS score nose down to the lowest for Healthcare Professionals

BREAKING NEWS for all the healthcare professionals out there as IRCC held its third draw for the week. The department issued 3,600 invites for candidates in healthcare jobs to apply. To get an ITA, candidates needed a minimum CRS score of at least 431. The main attraction of the draw is that it has the lowest CRS score in the Healthcare Category.

As compared to the last two Healthcare occupation specific draws, the ITAs and minimum CRS are becoming better for Healthcare immigrants. The first healthcare occupation specific draw which was held on June 28th, has a minimum CRS of 476 with only 500 issued ITAs. Next following draw in this category took place July 6th with a cut-off CRS of 463 with 1500 ITAs. Following the pattern, it is the best time for Healthcare professionals to apply for Canada immigration with the assistance of Dynamic Group, as CRS is getting low with increasing number of ITAs.

What is category-based selection?

Earlier this year, the IRCC introduced new draw categories. A legislation enacted in June 2022 has empowered the immigration minister to extend invitations to candidates fulfilling Canadaโ€™s economic needs or contributing to the promotion of the French language beyond the conventional criteria.

In alignment with this, the IRCC, in May, revealed six innovative draw categories under the Express Entry such as:

  • Healthcare
  • STEM professions
  • Trades
  • Transport
  • Agriculture and agri-food

Since June, Canada has conducted ten category-specific selection draws, issuing over 10,000 ITAs to candidates who were already part of the Express Entry pool.
