70,000 Express Entry Candidates Invited for Canada PR Visa in the Year 2019 with Latest Express Entry Draw

70,000 Express Entry Candidates Invited for Canada PR Visa in the Year 2019 with Latest Express Entry Draw
3,900 Express Entry candidates invited in the latest express draw for Canada PR Visa held on October 30th. With 3,900 ITAs in the latest express draw, Canada has invited a total of 71,700 Express entry candidates to this point in the year 2019.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement was set at 475 points.

Express Entry Program, a point-based immigration program, manages the profile of the candidates who have applied for Canada PR Visa through Canada’s three major skilled economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trade Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

The profile of the candidates is submitted into the express pool based on the CRS score. This CRS score is awarded based on factors like age, education, language proficiency, skilled work experience, etc.

Higher ranked profiles are then issued ITA (Invitation to Apply) to apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) through regularly held express draws.

Having a job offer from an eligible Canadian employer is not a mandatory requirement to apply for Canada PR Visa through Express Entry Program.

One of the major reasons for the increment in CRS score requirements is that fact a total of 28 days has passed between all-program express draw. Longer periods allow the high scoring candidates enough time to enter the express pool.

The CRS cut-off of 475 points is an increment of 11 points over the previous express draw that held on October 2nd.

IRCC used their tie break rule with the time stamp used was August 29, 2019, at 03:50:24 UTC. This means the immigrants who were able to get into the express pool before the used time stamp and had the CRS score of 475 points or more were issued the ITAs in this latest draw.

With 71,700 ITAs issued to this point in the year 2019, it allows the IRCC to be in line with Canada’s three-year immigration plan for higher admission rates for skilled immigrants.

For express entry candidates who were not able to meet the CRS cut-off, there are other ways to get the Canada PR Visa.

One of the major ones of them is to get the provincial nomination certificate. Having a provincial nomination awards the express entry candidate with 600 CRS points. Thus, effectively ensuring ITA is issued to the candidate. Some of the major PNPs that were active in recent weeks are as follows:

  • Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP): Saskatchewan held a record draw with nearly inviting 1,000 express entry candidates through SINP’s express entry linked immigration stream – Labour Market Priorities Stream.
  • Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP): Nova Scotia invited 430 Express entry candidates with work experience as registered nurses or registered psychiatric nurses via its Labour Market Priorities Stream. There was no minimum CRS score requirement.
  • Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP): Express entry candidates with CRS scores as low as 350 were invited by the province of Alberta.
