What to do if you do not get ITA for Canada PR in Express Entry draw?

Express Entry is undoubtedly the most popular Canada PR pathway. With a target of approving 485,000 PR applications, Canada is the top destination to settle in 2024. In such a case, there is one common question that every permanent residency aspirant faces. What to do if you do not get ITA for Canada PR in Express Entry draw?

Before answering the question, it is better to know about the EE system to better understand the answer.


Getting to know the Express Entry (EE) System

The Express Entry (EE) System is a PR visa application management system. Under this, you can apply via 1 of the 3 EE sub-streams such as:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)


Each category has its eligibility criteria that you must meet to apply. After applying your profile enters an EE pool, where you get a CRS rank out of 1200 based on information you share in your online profile. The rank you get under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is calculated under 4 factors such as:

  • Core / Human Capital Factors.
  • Spouse / Common-law Partner Factors.
  • Skill Transferability Factors.
  • Additional Points.


Now, IRCC holds periodic Express Entry draw types, to issue invitations to applicants who match or exceed the CRS cut-off. If you match the cut-off, you get an ITA to apply for a Canada PR visa. 


However, there are 6 types of Express Entry (EE) draws under which you can get an ITA for Canada PR such as:

  1. General draw.
  2. FSW draw.
  3. FST draw.
  4. CEC draw.
