This draw is part of the regular series of draws conducted by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to invite skilled workers to apply for permanent residency. The Express Entry system manages applications for three economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class. Candidates in the Express Entry pool are ranked based on their CRS score, which considers factors such as age, education, work experience, and language proficiency. 


Recent draws in 2024 have included various program-specific and general draws. For example, earlier draws in June included a PNP draw on June 19 with 1,499 invitations and a CRS cutoff of 663, and a Canadian Experience Class (CEC) draw on May 31 with 3,000 invitations and a CRS cutoff of 522. The pattern of issuing ITAs varies, with some draws targeting specific categories like healthcare, STEM occupations, and French-speaking candidates. 


Candidates who receive an ITA have 60 days to submit a complete application for permanent residency, providing detailed documentation to support their profile and CRS score. The IRCC aims to process most applications within six months from the date of submission.
