IRCC held the latest program-specific express entry draw targeting Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates inviting a total of 3,559 immigrants to apply for Canada PR Visa on June 11.
The minimum CRS score cut-off is set at 437 points which is the lowest requirement of 2020. This draw is the largest CEC-specific Express entry draw since May 1st, and the second-largest since Canada implemented their travel restrictions.
Today’s draw was the second round of invitations this week to issue invitations to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Yesterday June 10, 341 ITAs were issued to Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination. The minimum CRS score required for these candidates was 743 points.
Express entry draw cut-off continues to drop-down as IRCC continues to target a larger number of CEC candidates.
The time between express entry draws is an important factor that can have an effect on the CRS cut score. Shorter intervals between draws mean that fewer candidates have time to enter a profile in the Express Entry pool.
Today’s draw continued a trend that saw the CRS cutoff score decrease in each of the last seven CEC draws since the last draw for all programs on March 4, 2020.
Canada’s Express Entry system manages applicant profiles for three of Canada’s major economy class immigration programs – the federal skilled worker category, the skilled trades category, and the Canadian experience category.
Applicants are ranked based on a score assigned under the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) that takes into account factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and language proficiency in English or French language, etc.
A number of the highest-ranked applicants receive an ITA through regular pool draws and IRCC generally aims to process applications for permanent residence within six months.
IRCC applied its tiebreaker rule in this draw and the date and time used were May 25, 2020, at 12:31:43 UTC. This means that all CEC candidates with a CRS score of at least 437 who submitted their profile before this date and time, received an ITA during this round of invitation.
Today’s draw brings the total number of ATIs issued in 2020 to 46,000. Always ahead of the number of ITAs issued in the same period last year and the previous year.
Despite the fact that Canada’s immigration policies and procedures have undergone major changes since March 18 due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the Express Entry system has remained operational and applicants can still submit a profile.
IRCC has organized a total of thirteen draws for Canadian experience categories and provincial nominee programs in the past two months.
Both categories of applicants are more likely to be already in Canada than those arriving through other express entry programs, which means that they will not be affected by current travel restrictions.
