CRS Score Drop to 443 Points with the Latest Express Draws

Express Entry Latest Draw 23rd Jan 19

Federal Government of Canada has issued a total of 3,900 Invitation to Apply (ITA) with the latest round of express draw held on January 23, with the candidate with the lowest CRS score of 443 points was also issued the invitation.

With the second express draw of the month the total number of invitations issued sums up to 7,800 invitations. With this number of invitation issued, it’s the maximum number of invitations (ITAs) ever issued since the introduction of express entry (introduced in 2015) as of January 23. Express entry is a point. Express entry program is a point-based program which manages the profile of the candidates who have applied under the economic skilled immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Candidate’s profiles are ranked in the express entry pool with the use of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) with the help of points that are awarded to them based on factors such as age, educational qualifications, and work experience and language proficiency in English or French.

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has targeted to issue more invitations with the upcoming years 2019 and 2020 in comparison to 2018 which was also a record-breaking year with the most number of invitations issued in a single year. This start to the year keeps in line with the IRCC target for the number of invitations issued to the candidates who have applied under express entry program for permanent residence visa in Canada.

Last express draw was held on January 10 which gives time period of two weeks elapsed between the two consecutive express draws giving less time for the candidates to enter the express pool, which in turn helps in decrement in CRS score. Score of 443 points was the lowest ever for month of January since the introduction of express entry program. IRCC used their tie-break rule for the issuance of the invitations with the time stamp used was January 2, 2019 at 03:55:26 UTC. This means the candidate who have applied for the permanent residence visa before January 2, 2019 at 03:55:26 UTC and have minimum CRS score of 443 points were issued the Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Candidates, who were not able to meet the CRS requirement of express entry program, have another option to get their hands on Canadian PR Visa via the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP). Via PNP, provinces/territories are able to nominate the skilled and capable immigrants for permanent residence in their own province. If a candidate applied for provincial nomination via the express entry linked stream, and are able to get a provincial nomination, they are awarded 600 CRS points. These many points are more than enough to land an ITA to apply for a permanent residence visa to the IRCC.

Some of the provinces who were active for provincial nomination via express entry linked stream this month were Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, British Columbia and Prince Edward Island.
