When Will the Next Express Entry Draw for 2022 Be?
The Canadian government and IRCC will typically have Express Entry draws every 2 weeks on a Wednesday. However, on Wednesday, December 7, there was no draw. This is thought to be due to glitches/technical errors in the Express Entry system. Based on this, we predict the next Express Entry draw may not take place until next year, January 11th, 2023.
The frequency of every two weeks might change but a minimum of two express entry draws occur in a month. There are some occurrences when a PNP draw has been done on a Wednesday, the next day there is a CEC draw on Thursday. The latest Express Entry Draw was #236 on November 23rd, 2022. The 236th draw offered 4,750 ITA to those with a cut-off CRS score of 491. This draw was not targeted toward a specific program.
Due to the coronavirus/COVID-19, many things in immigration can be unpredictable but we assume that the next date will be two weeks from the previous one.
What Time of Day is the Express Entry Draw Announced?
There is no exact set time of day Express Entry draws happen, but we typically see that they are announced every other Wednesday afternoon, sometime after 3pm EST.
Will the Next Draw Be a CEC Draw? Is There Going to Be a CEC Draw in 2022?
The next draw will most likely be another all programs draw, as that is what we have been seeing since July 2022. The last CEC only draw occurred on September 14, 2021, and there have been a total of 17 CEC draws in the year of 2021, and none so far in 2022.
Because Canadian experience is a crucial qualifying element, the majority of CEC applicants in the Express Entry pool apply from within the country. Candidates for the CEC must have one year of full-time Canadian work experience in a skilled field.
