Latest Express Entry Draw Issued a Total of 3,350 Invitations to the Candidates – 20th March 2019

Express Entry Latest Draw 20th Mar 19

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the latest express draw on March 20, issuing the invitations to the candidates who have registered under the federal government’s express entry program for Canada PR visa.

Candidate with the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 452 points has issued the Invitation to Apply (ITA), which is a drop of two points from the previous express draw.

With the latest express draw, it sees the IRCC issued a total 21,200 ITAs this year via the express entry system in 2019. Last year at the same time period in 2018 only 14,500 ITAs were issued. The difference between the ITAs of the two years is of 14,500 ITAs which is in route to breaking the previous record of issuing the most invitations in a single year as it is planned by the IRCC for the year 2019 and 2020. IRCC want to set higher admission record for year 2019 and 2020 for the candidates who have applied under the three Canada’s skilled economic immigration program – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

In order to be eligible for express entry program, candidates have to meet the minimum requirements. Once they are able to meet the requirements, their profile is then submitted into the express pool where it is issued a score that is awarded based on factors like age, educational qualifications, work experience and language proficiency in either English or French language. Candidates with the highest score have then issued the ITA via which the candidates can apply for Canada PR visa.

IRCC used their tie-break rule for the latest express draw with the tamp stamp used was February 7, 2019, at 9:59:25 UTC. This means the candidates who have entered the express pool before the used time stamp and have the CRS equal or more than 452 points were issued the ITAs to apply for Canada PR visa.

The two previous express draws has seen consecutive decrement of the CRS cut-off, this is mainly because of the fact that IRCC only allowed two weeks between the draws. With IRCC looking to increase the admission rate, we can see the upcoming draws with bigger size especially in the second quarter of the year. The second quarter of both 2017 and 2018 has seen bigger express draws with low CRS cut-offs.
