Changes expected in Express Entry Draw


Many people are beginning to look ahead to 2023 and the anticipated immigration developments after 2022. Many people are interested in learning what Canadian immigration will look like in 2023 after the publication of the new 2023–2025 immigration plans, updated NOC codes, and the passage of Bill C-19.

An applicant’s CRS score is determined by several factors, including their work experience, education, or language ability, as well as their age or whether they have family in Canada already. A candidate with the highest CRS score is more likely to receive an ITA in an Express Entry draw if they have the most points across all factors.

The IRCC has said that it will start holding targeted Express Entry lotteries in 2023. With targeted draws, the government would be better able to target people with in-demand talents and fill specific labour gaps.

The framework for conducting such targeted drawings would be provided by Bill C-19. The IRCC’s suggested groups would be used to determine which applicants could be invited under this measure. In order to fill specific needs, this would enable the IRCC to deliberately target people based on their profession, language, and/or educational background.

The current Express Entry all program draws, in accordance with Minister of Immigration Sean Fraser, do not adequately address present immigration needs. The country’s present immigration restrictions prevent it from hiring foreigners with the most in-demand qualifications and experience.

It is still unknown exactly how, what, or how frequently these targeted draws will take place. Targeted draws are anticipated to start in the first quarter of 2023, however no specific time has been specified as of yet.

Although the specific divisions have not been determined, they are probably going to be determined by things like employment history, educational background, or language competency in one of Canada’s official languages. For instance, they might invite only French speakers or people with experience in a certain in-demand profession to a round of interviews.

The most recent immigration plan supports immigration as a tactic to assist deal with labour shortages. Additionally, it strives to draw talent for vital fields like healthcare, skilled professions, manufacturing, and technology.

In order to solve these shortages and fill in-demand positions in the industries, Express Entry will be crucial.


The annual inflow of new immigrants to Canada will rise during the next three years. In 2023, Canada plans to take in 465,000 additional immigrants. In 2024, the goal will increase to 485,000 new immigrants. Additionally, it will increase to 500,000 additional immigrants in 2025.


The new strategy also seeks to expand regional initiatives. Like the Provincial Nominee Program, the Atlantic Immigration Program, and the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot to address specific local labour market requirements.


By making sure that your profile is completely filled out, you can increase the likelihood that it will be chosen. Make sure that your profile contains all pertinent information because it is yet uncertain what groupings will exist.

It might be a good idea to have test results. For instance, if you are fluent in both French and English. This would help you get the most CRS points and increase the likelihood that your profile would be chosen for French language ability groupings.
