New Express Entry draw sees cut-off score drop by 3 points
A new Express Entry draw held June 26 invited 3,350 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
The cut-off score in this draw was 462, a three-point decrease from the previous draw’s minimum score of 465.
It was the second consecutive draw to see the cut-off score drop since May 29, when it reached 470.
The time between draws is a crucial variable that influences the cut-off CRS score. The lower cut-off score in the last two Express Entry (EE) draw may be because Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) returned to draw biweekly.
When more time passes between draws, a greater number of candidates with higher scores were able to enter the pool, which can have the effect of driving up the cut-off score.
The gap of early a month between all-programs draws explains the unusual high cut-off score in the draw held on May 29.
IRCC has now issued 41,800 ITAs to EE candidates in 2019, which is 2100 ahead of IRCC’s 2018 pace.
Express Entry is an online registration system used to apply for permanent resident in Canada, which manages applications for three economic immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for the EE pool.
