Latest Express Entry pool draw sees minimum CRS score drop
Since February 20th, the minimum Express Entry (EE) Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score has dropped four times.
On May 1st, another draw for permanent residence was held. The lowest score in this draw was 450.
The minimum CRS score in the two previous draws was 451.
Scores are based on factors such as age, experience, language proficiency in English or French, and education.
3,350 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada for the May 1st draw.
So far, for 2019, the number of invitations given to EE candidates has risen to 31,250. The total goal for invitations given through Express Entry pools by the end of 2019 is 81,400.
The Express Entry system includes the candidate pools from the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class. These three pools draw in the greatest number of economic class newcomers each year.
All prior candidates who have profiles in the EE pool with a score of or above 450, and did not receive an invitation to apply (ITA) previously have since received an ITA.
The minimum CRS score has the potential to drop in future draws throughout the year. If draw sizes increase, it is likely that the minimum score will continue to go down even further.
