The draws conducted in this period encompassed various categories and occupations, highlighting the diversity of skills and expertise desired in Canada. On July 6, IRCC issued 1,500 invitations to healthcare professionals with a cut-off CRS score of 463, which was expected given the demand in the healthcare sector.

Another significant draw occurred on July 5, targeting candidates with work experience in select science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) occupations. IRCC invited 500 candidates with a minimum CRS score of 486. This draw was anticipated and announced by IRCC a week in advance, reflecting their transparent approach.

Recap of Previous Weeks’ Invitations: In the preceding week, IRCC conducted two rounds of invitations. On June 27, an all-program draw took place, inviting 4,300 candidates from various Express Entry managed programs, including the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades Program.
