Ministerial instructions respecting invitations to apply for permanent residence under the Express Entry system

We rank Express Entry candidates in the pool using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). About every 2 weeks, we invite the top candidates in the pool to apply for permanent residence during rounds of invitations.

The table below lists all the Express Entry rounds of invitations. You can search, filter and sort the information by any of the fields.

Description of the table fields
  • #: Each round has a unique number given to it. You can use this to look up detailed results of each round.
  • Date: The date the round was held.
  • Immigration program: The Express Entry program(s) included in the round. Rounds can cover a single program or multiple programs.
    • “General” rounds are open to candidates from all Express Entry programs (Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Workers, Federal Skilled Trades and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program).
  • Invitations issued: The number of candidates who got an invitation to apply.
  • CRS score of lowest-ranked candidate invited

The way Express Entry works has changed over time. Make sure you check which ministerial instructions respecting the Express Entry system apply to your round to see how to calculate your CRS points.
