9th express entry draw 2018

Latest Express Draw Invited 3,600 Express Entry Candidates for Canada PR Visa

Latest Express Draw Invited 3,600 Express Entry Candidates for Canada PR Visa

A total of 3,600 Immigrants were invited in the latest express draw held on November 13th who have applied for Canada PR Visa through federal government’s Express Entry program.

The minimum required Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score was 472 points. This is a decrement of 3 points from the previous CRS score cut-off of 475 points. With the express draw of November 13th, the total number of Invitations to Apply (ITA) issued so far this year has reached 75,300 ITAs.  This brings – Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) within 14,500 ITAs of previous records making year of 2018 which sees a total 89,800 ITAs issued in a single year.  This progress is in line with Canada’s three-year immigration plan for a higher admission rate for skilled immigrants.

Express entry program, a point-based immigration program, manages the pool of the registered candidates under Canada’s three major skilled economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Canadian Experience Class.  Express profiles are ranked in the pool based on a score awarded under CRS, which assigns points for credentials like age, language proficiency, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French, among other major criteria.

Higher ranked profiles are then issued ITAs through regularly held express draws so that the candidate can apply for Canada PR Visa to the IRCC. Once a candidate gets an ITA, they have 60 days to submit their application with the proper set of documents to the IRCC.

The decrement in CRS score cut-offs is because of less time elapsed between two consecutive all program express draws. This gives less time to replenish the express pool with higher-skilled candidates thus decreasing the minimum required CRS score.

IRCC used their tie-break rule with the time stamp used was October 8, 2019 at 10:46:01 UTC. This means the candidates who have entered the express pool before the used time stamp and have the minimum CRS score of 472 points or more were issued the ITAs in the latest express draw.

For candidates who are not able to meet the high CRS score requirement of the Express Entry Program, they can improve their CRS score. One of the most valuable options for this is to get a provincial nomination.

For an Express entry candidate to land a provincial nomination certificate, it awards them with 600 CRS points. These many points effectively make sure that the candidate gets the ITA to apply for Canada PR Visa.  Every PNP has a stream that is in-line with express entry program; this allows the express entry candidates to apply for provincial nomination.

In the last few weeks, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, and British Columbia were some of the provinces that issued invitations through their express entry linked streams.

Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP)’s International Skilled Worker: Express Entry Sub-Category allows the province to search for the skilled candidates in the federal express pool. On November 12th, SINP invited a total of 303 Express Entry candidates for provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa.

Province of Alberta invited a total 401 Express Entry candidates in their last two provincial draws through Alberta Express Entry Stream. October 24th draw invited Express Entry candidates with CRS score as low as 300.

Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NS NP) invited 430 Express Entry candidates with work experience as registered nurses or registered psychiatric nurses through its Labour Market Priorities Stream on October 28th.  There was no minimum CRS score requirement under NSNP.

British Columbia was also inviting Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa through its express entry linked stream – Express Entry BC.
