Express Entry 2023 updates and who are the targeted candidates? In the 2023 first quarter and beyond, Canada will change the way of selecting Express Entry candidates. New authorities will come forward to hold the Express Entry draw now on the basis of specific attributes other than only their overall CRS score.
Bill C-19 was passed in both houses of parliament and Express Entry changes were made possible on June 23. Besides, the immigration minister holds the authority to invite immigrants with different abilities, or in-demand skills who can help in the growth of Canada’s economy under Bill C-19.IRCC mentions that now with the help of the new Bill, Canada can take steps to invite immigrants who would support the economic goals of the country.
Express Entry 2023 updates regarding ITAs
As per the Express Entry 2023 updates- The immigration minister says that he shall discuss the best way to evaluate and target new immigrants with stakeholders and provinces and till now no date is confirmed for the issuing of ITAs.
The new authority with the minister indicates that Canada can now invite immigrants based on the country’s economic needs and labour shortages.
For instance, Canada has a job vacancy of 6% in the healthcare sector and the government is taking measures to fill the vacancy by removing barriers to trained physicians already in the country.
According to the news, only candidates with healthcare professional backgrounds will receive ITAs in the Express Entry draws so that Canada can fill the vacancies at a faster rate.
Express Entry 2023 updates
The main reason for the change in the system is that Canada is facing a shortage of labour because of the country’s lower birth rate and aging population. According to the current estimations around 9 million Canadian citizens will reach their retirement age by the year 2030.
According to the Express Entry 2023 updates, to fill this gap Canada needs more youngsters to maintain the workforce and boost the economy.
Therefore, Canada targets to invite 500,000 new immigrants every year by 2025 and out of these around 110,000 through Express Entry programs.

How does Canada Express Entry function?
The Canada Express Entry streamlines the skilled workers processing who apply under the three immigration programs which are: The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
In January 2015, when the Express Entry came into action the candidates received ITAs as per their CRS Comprehensive Ranking System scores.
Immigrants received ITAs on the basis of their education, work experience, language ability, age, and many other human capital factors under the CRS. The candidates with the highest CRS score have the highest chances to get an ITA in the Express Entry draw.
According to the IRCC, the candidates still need to meet the Express Entry eligibility. However, the CRS score of a candidate is not the deciding factor to receive ITA, candidates also need to have specific work experience, language abilities, and experience to receive an ITA in the Express Entry 2023 updates.
