Latest Express Draw invites 3,600 Express Entry Candidate to Apply for Canada PR Visa

Latest Express Draw invites 3,600 Express Entry Candidate to Apply for Canada PR Visa

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held their latest Express draw on November 27th that issued a total of 3,600 ITAs (Invitation to Apply) to candidate who has applied for Canada PR Visa through Express Entry program.

Express Entry program, Canada’s principal source of skilled foreign labour, manages the pool of the candidates registered under three major skilled economic immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Express Entry candidates are awarded points through Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) based on factors such as education, age, proficiency in English and/or French and skilled work experience.

Higher ranked profiles are then issued the ITAs through frequently held express draws. With an ITA, the candidate has 60 days to submit their application to IRCC for Canada PR Visa.

The minimum CRS score required in latest express draw was set at 471 points, which is a decrement of one point from the previous CRS score cut-off which was 472 points for express draws held on November 13.

IRCC applied their tie-break rule to issue ITAs with the time stamp used set on November 11, 2019 at 6:29:10 UTC. This means the candidates who have entered express pool before the used the time-stamp and have minimum CRS score of 471 points, were issued the ITAs.

One of the major factors that influence the CRS score cut-off is the time interval between two consecutive express draws with shorter periods can help in lowering the CRS score and the other factor is the size of the draw where larger express draws can also lower the minimum CRS score requirement.

With this latest round of invitations, the total ITAs issued for this year have come to 78,900. This means the IRCC is just 11,000 ITAs shy of 2018’s record of 89,800 ITAs – most number of ITAs issued in a single year.

For the express entry candidates who are not able to meet the minimum CRS score requirement, the major option for them to clear the CRS score cut-off is to get a provincial nomination.

With an express entry candidate who is able to get a provincial nomination, they are given a boost of 600 CRS points.

Canada’s PNP admission rate for skilled immigrants is also slated to increase from 61,000 to 67,800 in 2020.

Out of total provinces, nine provinces have a stream that is in-line with express entry programs through their respective PNPs.  This way province is able to search for skilled immigrants in the federal government’s express pool. Some of these express entry linked streams do not require CRS score with some of them needs low CRS scores.

Some of the active PNPs in recent weeks are as follows:
