What is an ALL-PROGRAM DRAW of Express Entry?

Express Entry is a computerized method for handling applications from skilled professionals seeking to immigrate to Canada permanently. Managed by Express Entry are three programs:

Federal Skilled Worker Program FSWP

Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) 

Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

Express Entry has two main steps and is very easy to use. Candidates who qualify for communication Entry communicate their desire in becoming Canadian permanent residents to the Canadian government in the first significant stage. The second main stage involves rounds of invitations (sometimes referred to as “draws”) in which the Canadian government extends invitations to immigrate to Canada to the candidates who scored the highest.

There are three distinct draw types for Express Entry:

 General rounds of invitation: IRCC extends invitations to applicants for permanent residency to individuals with the highest CRS scores.

2. Program-specific rounds of invitation: IRCC extends invitations to people who qualify for a particular Express Entry program and have the highest CRS scores.

3. Invitation rounds based on categories: The IRCC selects applicants who are qualified for particular categories it has defined to advance particular economic objectives and who have the best ranking CRS scores.

In the All Program Draw, IRCC sends invitations to all candidates of the Express Entry Pool. In this type of draw, candidates from FSWP, FSTP, and CEC may submit their application if they fulfill all requirements, and meet the CRS Cutoff.
