On 3rd April, Canada has issued 3,350 invitations to Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence to with scores as low as 451.
The Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) in today’s draw is one point lower than the cut-off score in the previous Express Entry invitation round on March 20, which was 452.
This was the third consecutive draw in which the cut-off score has gone down, a trend that may be attributed to the consistent two-week interval between draws.
The tie-break used in the April 3 draw was set at January 9, 2019, at 07:35:09 UTC. This means that all candidates with a CRS score above 451, as well as those candidates with scores of 451 who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before this date and time, received an ITA in this invitation round.
The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main federal economic immigration programs — Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
Eligible candidates for each class are assigned a score under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and are entered into the Express Entry pool, where they are ranked accordingly.
A set number of the highest-ranked candidates are then issued an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residence (ITA) through regular draws from the pool.
This recent draw brings the total ITAs issued in 2019 to 24,550.
A look at ITA results by April 3 for the current and last year shows that 2019 is 7,050 ITAs ahead of 2018.
