In the latest Express Entry Draw released on 15th October, 2018, the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score asked from the candidates settled at 440 points.

It is the fifth time this year a low that Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 440 was set as the cut-off. Just like all the other times, this time as well the tie-break rule was applied w.e.f 18th September, 2018 at 11.06.29 UTC. This means that all the applications who had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 440 or above and submitted their applications on or before 18th September, 2018 are eligible to receive an ITA (Invitation to Apply).
