The most recent draw, specifically targeting healthcare occupations, saw the issuance of 3,600 invitations to apply (ITAs). Candidates with a rank of 3,600 or above were eligible for consideration.
This round took place on October 26, 2023, and the lowest-ranked candidate invited possessed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 431. The tie-breaking rule, in case of similar scores, considered the date and time of Express Entry profile submissions to ensure fairness in the selection process.
Of particular note is the establishment of the Healthcare occupations (2023-1) category for ranking purposes. This category signifies Canada’s commitment to attracting skilled professionals in the healthcare sector. Eligible foreign nationals can join this category by meeting specific criteria, including at least six months of relevant work experience within the three years preceding its establishment.
