Express Entry draw #245 was a significant draw in Canadian immigration history, with 7,000 candidates being invited to apply for permanent residency with a CRS score of 481 or above.

Express Entry draw no #245 was held on March 29, 2023, at 13:44:01 UTC. This draw was an all-program draw, which means candidates from all three federal immigration programs - Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) were considered. The total number of invitations issued was 7,000, and the minimum CRS score required to be invited was 7,000 or above.

The CRS score of the lowest-ranked candidate who received an invitation to apply in this draw was 481. This score is a significant drop from the previous draw, which required a CRS score of 490. In fact, this draw had the lowest CRS score requirement for an all-program draw since the December 23, 2020 Express Entry draw, which had a minimum CRS score of 468.

The tie-breaking rule used for this draw was February 14, 2023, at 07:35:00 UTC. This means that candidates who had a CRS score of 481 or higher and submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule timestamp received an invitation.

It is worth noting that this is the third draw in a row with 7,000 invitations issued in each. Additionally, to reach a CRS score of 481, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited a total of 21,000 candidates over the past two weeks, demonstrating the Canadian government's commitment to welcoming immigrants to the country.
