Canada Express Entry draws have changed with the introduction of occupation-specific draws, which began with 500 invitations for healthcare workers on June 28. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued 10,100 invitations since then, with only 1,500 through all-program draws. The other invitations included 6,100 for Francophone candidates, 2,000 for healthcare workers, and 500 for candidates in STEM occupations. Previously, most invitations were issued through all-program draws. IRCC conducted all-program draws every two weeks with the occasional program-specific draw. The CRS score has risen into the 500s with the reduced frequency of all-programs draws.
