There was a long indefinite pause in Express Entry draws since October 2023, after that all these draws in December took place. IRCC provided no rigid confirmation for the reason for the pause. On November 14, as per the tweet of IRCC, an IT issue happened with the Express Entry profile builder for candidates who had received an ITA and were trying to upload their final application on the website of IRCC but it was fixed soon on November 16. Even after that, the draws did not resume immediately as expected.
There is a delay in the Express Entry draws for many possible reasons, such as IT issues, updates to the Comprehensive Ranking System, staffing changes, etc.
