Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has conducted its fourth Express Entry draw of the month.

Express Entry Latest Draw - Results

The Express Entry latest draw held on July 08, 2024, invited 3,200 ITAs candidates in a category-based selection draw for French language proficiency. Invited candidates required a CRS score of 420 to be eligible.

Type of draw: French language proficiency

  • Number of invitations issued: 3,200
  • Rank required to be invited to apply: 3,200 or above
  • Date and time of round: July 08, 2024 at 14:01:33 UTC
  • CRS score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 420
  • Tie-breaking rule: May 30, 2024, at 03:37:43 UTC

Candidates invited to this Express Entry latest draw will have 60 days to submit a complete application for permanent residency (PR) to the IRCC. If more than one candidate has the lowest score, the CRS score cut-off will be based on the date and time they submitted their Express Entry profiles.

French language proficiency draws are anticipated to make up 30% of the ITAs issued in category-based selection draws this year. So far, IRCC has issued 15,600 ITAs to eligible candidates in this category.

By prioritizing the invitation of French-speaking newcomers, Canada aims to support economic growth through Francophone immigration outside Quebec while recognizing how it enriches and strengthens these communities. As compared to the other five newly announced selection categories for Express Entry draws, French language proficiency is the only one that does not consider work experience as the key attribute to be invited to apply for Canada PR.
