In the latest express entry draw#111, the Canadian Government issued invitations to 3,350 candidates to apply for Canadian PR.
The draw was held on 20th February 2019.
So far, in 2019, the IRCC has issued a total of 14,500 ITAs in 2019, this proves to be the biggest start to a year since 2015 (Express Entry system introduced).
If you remember the total number of invitations issued in the year 2018, which was 89,800, you would be able to notice an increase of 70 percent this year.
The Canadian Express Entry system administers the pool of candidates for the 3 Federal High Skilled economic immigration programs- The Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Federal Skilled Trades Class and is structured to promote the immigration process for the candidates with ITAs for Canadian PR.
The invitations are issued as per the candidate’s CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score. This score highly depends upon the factors including education, age, proficiency in French or English and skilled work experience.
The IRCC gives ITAs for Canadian PR to a set of candidates with the highest rank through periodical draws from the express entry pool. The draw usually takes place every two weeks.
The minimum CRS score in the latest draw (#111) held on 20th Feb’19 was 457, a rise of 19 points when compared to the previous draw that took place on 30th Jan’19.
This increase in the latest draw could be due to the three weeks gap from the previous draw.
In our previous blog, you would have noticed that for a rise in the cut-off score more time between the draws is required.
All the candidates holding CRS score above 457, along with those with scores of 457 who entered their profile in the pool before selected date & time are issued an ITA in this invitation round.
It is not that your CRS score can’t be improved. And one of the best approaches is to obtain a nomination via Canada’s PNP.
