3,600 Candidates Invited For Canada Permanent Residence In The Latest Express Draw

Latest Express Entry Score - 12th Aug 2019

Latest express draw held on August 12th invited a total 3,600 candidates who have applied for Canada Permanent residence visa through Express entry program.

In the latest draw, Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off was set at 466 points which is seven points more than the previous express draw (July 24th) CRS cut-off which was 459 points.

Express entry is the main immigration pathway for skilled immigrants to apply for Canada PR Visa. It is a point-based immigration program that manages the profiles of the candidates who have registered under Canada’s three major skilled immigration economic programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

With the use of a ranking system – Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), profiles of the candidates are awarded points in the express pool based on the factors like age, education, skilled work experience, and language proficiency in English or French, and other major factors. Based on these CRS points candidates are ranked in the express pool and the highest-ranked profiles are then issued the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR Visa.

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) used their tie-break in the draw held on August 12th, with time stamp used – August 6th, 2019 at 12:14:53 UTC. This means that the candidates who have entered the express pool before the used time stamp and is able to clear the CRS cut-off of 466 points were issued the ITA.

The latest round of invitation has brought the total number of invitations issued till this point in this year 2019 to 52,600 invitations. These large sizes of express draws are in line with Canada’s three-year immigration plan for higher admission rate for skilled immigrants. This will allow breaking the record of most number of invitations issued in a single year which was made the last year 2018 for 89,800 invitations.

Increase in CRS cut-off can be attributed to the fact that a total of three weeks has been elapsed between the two consecutive express draws. Generally, consecutive express draws are held between two weeks that allows less time to replenish the express pool with skilled immigrants with higher qualifications.

For the immigrants who are not able to clear the CRS cut-off, there are ways to improve their CRS score. One of the major ways is to get the provincial nomination certificate. For an express entry candidate to land the provincial nomination, it gives a boost of 600 CRS points. These many points make sure that is able to get the ITA. Some of the major PNPs that were active in recent weeks are as follows:

  • Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP): Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream has issued a total 1,773 invitations for express entry candidates with work experience in six tech occupations and CRS score as low as 435 points, among other major criteria/qualifications.
  • Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP): SINP invited 104 express entry candidates with work experience in one of the 19 in-demand occupations and other major criteria.
  • Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP): Alberta has invited express draw candidates with CRS score as low as 300 Points through its express entry linked stream – Alberta Express Entry Stream on four occasions in 2019. Three draws has minimum CRS score requirement of 301 and other had CRS cut-off at 302 points.
