Express Entry Candidates With Low CRS Score As 332 Invited To Apply For Canada PR Visa

Low CRS Score As 332 Invited To Apply For Canada PR Visa

Federal Government of Canada with the help of Express entry draw held on May 15 invited a total of 500 skilled immigrants, who have registered under Federal Skilled Trades Class with Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) as low as 332 points to apply for permanent residency in Canada.

Federal Skilled Trades Class is one of Canada’s three skilled immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). The profiles of the immigrants registered under these programs are managed by the Express Entry Program which is a point-based program.

These points – CRS score, are awarded to the candidate’s profile based on the factors like age, educational qualification, work experience, language proficiency, etc. and based on these points there profiles are ranked in the express pool.

Program specific draw was the first one since September 24, 2018, that targets the immigrants applied under Federal Skilled Trades Class. This program allows the skilled and capable immigrants with the certification of qualification that shows that they are qualified to work in the particular occupation in the country OR a job-offer from an eligible employer of the country to apply for Canada PR visa.

Work experiences for Federal Skilled Trades Class in the following occupation were invited that are categorized under National Occupational Classification (NOC):

  • Major Group 72: Industrial, electrical and construction trades
  • Major Group 73: Maintenance and equipment operation trades
  • Major Group 82: Supervisors and technical jobs in natural resources, agriculture, and related production
  • Major Group 92: Processing, manufacturing and utility supervisors and central control operators
  • Major Group 632: Chefs and cooks
  • Major Group 633: Butchers and Bakers

Talking about the major pattern followed by the express draw whenever they target the express pool with a large number of candidate it leads to the increase in CRS score requirement but in this case when they targeted a specific group of the candidates with particular work experience, it leads to the decrement in the CRS cut-off to apply for Canada PR visa.

Seeing the express draw of May 15, the minimum CRS score requirement was of 332 points which were 106 points lower than the lowest CRS score requirement this year in all-program Express Entry draw, which was set at 438 points.

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) used their tie-break rule with time stamp set on August 29, 2018, at 8:32:03 UTC. These imply that the candidates registered under Federal Skilled Trades Class with CRS score above 332 points and have entered the express pool before August 29, 2018, at 8:32:03 UTC has issued the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for the Canada PR visa to the IRCC.

Talking about the other immigration pathway for Canada PR visa except for the Express Entry program, Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) is also very much active in the year 2019. Taking the example of the province of Alberta which via Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) invited the skilled immigrants for permanent residency with CRS score as low as 300 in three occasions this year.

Even the Atlantic province of Canada especially – Nova Scotia with the help of its Labour Market Priorities Stream targeted the express entry candidate with work experience as accountants and financial auditors. Lowest CRS requirement was of 400 points.

Another province active was of Ontario which via it’s Human Capital Priorities Stream targeted express entry registered candidates with specific credentials and on two occasions even drop their CRS score requirement to 350 points.
