Drop-in CRS Score for Latest Express Draws

Drop-in CRS Score for Latest Express Draws

Federal Government of Canada, held the latest Express draw on December 19 inviting a total of 3,200 express entry candidates to apply for a permanent residence visa. The minimum CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score required was set at 469 points, which is a decrease of three points from previous CRS score cut-offs.


Express Entry program – the main source of skilled immigrants for Canada, is a point-based program. Introduced in 2015, it manages the pool of the skilled immigrants who have applied for Canada PR Visa through three major skilled economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). All the registered profiles are submitted together into the express pool where they are ranked with the help of ranking system – CRS. CRS factors in the credentials of candidates like age, language proficiency, work experience etc.

Higher ranked profiles are then issued Invitation to Apply (ITA) through regularly held express draws. ITA allows the candidate to submit their application for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC). These express draws are generally held between the time intervals of two weeks.

CRS score cut-off is determined by the factors like the time interval between two express draws and the size of the express draw. The decrement of CRS cut-off for the latest express draw is mainly because of the less time between the draws. This shorter interval does not provide enough time for the pool to replenish from candidates with higher skill-sets.

IRCC used their tie-break rule with the time stamp used set on November 14, 2019, at 08:41:33 UTC. This means the express entry candidates with a CRS score of minimum 469 points and has created their express profiles before the used time-stamp were invited in the latest express draw.

With this express draw, total ITAs issued this year has come to 85,300 ITAs. This is 4,500 ITAs short from previous years ITAs, where a total of 89,800 ITAs were issued – making it a record year for the most number of invitations issued in a single year.

For express entry candidates who are not able to meet the minimum CRS score requirement, getting a provincial nomination certificate is a viable option. 600 CRS points are awarded to the express entry for a provincial nomination. Canada’s PNPs target is also set to increase from 61,000 to 67,800 in 2020.
