The IRCC report  released for Express Entry  for 2022

IRCC's latest express entry all-program Draw invites 3,725 candidates

The annual report of the IRCC has been released on express entry, and it has found that there were 24 Express Entry draws in 2022 as per, which  46,539 ITAs were issued. This is 59% fewer ITAs than in 2021 (114,431).

This could be because of the break in the Express Entry draws for Federal High Skilled programs between September 2021 and July 2022.

A large number of invites were issued to applicants in the  Provincial Nominee Program (19,258) and the Canadian Experience Class (18,895) in 2022.   It was only 8,386 ITAs for the Federal Skilled Worker Program and no ITAs for the Federal Skilled Trades Program in 2022.
The most common occupations that received the ITAs were information systems and Food service supervisors and cooks.

What is  Express Entry category-based selection?

To meet the expected labor market demand, the Canadian Government has started the categorical selection of applicants under the express entry program, and it will include the occupations that are in high demand in Canada. In 2023 there are six such occupations, and they are -

• Healthcare;
• STEM professions;
• Trades;
• Transport;
• Agriculture and agri-food; and
• Strong French abilities
