Launched on January 1, 2015, candidates eligible to immigrate to Canada under a federal economic immigration program may enter the Express Entry pool. The government of Canada selects the top-ranked candidates on a priority basis when it performs one of its frequent draws from the pool.

On February 10, 2016, 1,505 invitations were sent with the cut-off score of 459 points to those skilled candidates who had submitted a profile into the Express Entry pool.

This latest draw is the fourth draw that has taken place over the first six weeks of 2016. Recent Express Entry draws have seen an increase in frequency and number of invitations.
