Latest Express Draw Invites Trade Candidates with CRS Score as Low as 357 for Canada PR Visa

Latest Express Draw Invites Trade Candidates with CRS Score as Low as 357 for Canada PR Visa
Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited a total of 500 Federal Skilled Trades Class candidates to apply for Canada PR Visa in the express draw held on October 16th. Candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score as low as 357 points were invited in the latest express draw.

This is the second time in the year 2019 that a program-specific express draw was held that targeted Federal Skilled Trades Class. This program is for the immigrants with a certificate of qualification that prove that they are qualified to work in an eligible skilled trade in Canada OR have an eligible offer of employment in Canada, and among other major criteria.

As we know, Express Entry program is a point-based immigration program that manages the pool of the immigrants that have applied under Canada’s three major skilled immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Once a candidate is able to create their express profile, they are awarded CRS points based on factors like age, language proficiency, work experience, skilled work experience.

Previous all program express draw was held on October 2nd that invited a total of 3,900 Invitation to Apply (ITA). An increase in admission rate is in-line with Canada’s three-year immigration plan to invite more skilled candidates in order to help in the economic development of the country.

In contrast to all program express draws, these program-specific express draws (Federal Skilled Trades Class) tend to have lower CRS cut-offs given they target a smaller pool of express entry candidates. Looking at the CRS score cut-off of October 16th program-specific express draw, which is set at 357 points is 81 points lower than the latest all program express draw which was 438 points.

IRCC used their tie-break rule with the time stamp used was March 4, 2019, at 20:36:42 UTC. This means the Federal Skilled Trades program candidates with CRS score of 357 points or more and entered the express pool before the used time-stamp was invited in the express draw.

This program-specific express draw shows that there are ways for the immigrants with low CRS scores to apply for Canada PR Visa. Other than the express entry program, there are also Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) that are also having low CRS requirements in comparison to express draws.

If an express entry candidate is able to get a provincial nomination they are awarded 600 CRS points thus effectively making sure that candidate is able to get an ITA to apply for Canada PR Visa to IRCC.

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) – Provincial nomination program of Alberta province has invited express entry candidates with the CRS score as low as 400 points. Previous provincial draw via Alberta Express Entry stream has invited express entry candidates with CRS score with 300 points.

There are also PNP’s that have their own point assessment grid. They do not require the CRS score to invite eligible candidates. Manitoba and British Columbia are the provinces that were active and held draws in recent weeks.
