Latest Express Entry Draw Invited Total 3,350 Candidates For Canada PR Visa

Latest Express Entry Draw - 29th May 2019

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the latest express draw on May 29, to issue Invitation to Apply (ITA) to the candidates registered under Express entry program to apply for Canada PR visa.

The latest express draw invited a total of 3,350 express entry registered candidates which also marks the return of the express draws to larger number of invitations. Last express draw held on May 15, issued only 500 ITAs as it was limited to Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).

As we know express entry is a point based program that manages the profiles of the candidates who have registered under Canada’s express entry program – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). It uses a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to ranks the profiles of the registered candidate based on the points (CRS points) awarded to their express profiles for factors like age, language proficiency, educational qualification etc. Highest ranked profiles are then issued the ITAs via regularly held express draw.

The CRS cut-off for the latest express draw was 470 points. This much increase in CRS score cut-off is because of the gap of nearly a month between the two express draws. Mainly, the express draws are held on interval of two weeks. With this much gap in the express draws, it allows the express pool to replenish with more skilled and capable immigrants affecting the CRS score cut-off.

With the latest number of ITAs issued, it brings the total for ITAs issued until now for year 2019 to 35,100. Government of Canada has increased their admission rate for the skilled immigration program in accordance for their three year immigration Plan. This plan focuses to increase the number of ITAs issued for years: 2019, 2020 & 2021. Admission target for this year 2019 is 81,400 new permanent residents that is an increase of 6,500 admissions over the last year 2018 admission of 74,900.

Time stamp used for the latest express draw by IRCC was May 23, 2019 at 10:18:56 UTC. This means the candidates who have entered the express pool before the used time stamp and are able to score the minimum 470 points were issued the ITAs to apply for Canada PR visa.

There are ways for candidates to increase their CRS score in order to meet the CRS score cut-offs the express draws. One of the major ways is to get a provincial nomination. For an express entry candidate to get a provincial nomination means they will be awarded with 600 CRS points. These many points make sure that the candidate is able to get the ITA and apply for Canada PR visa.

Some of the major provincial nomination program (PNP) active in this year are as follows:
