Canada issued 3350 invitations to Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence
In the draw held on June 12, 3350 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence, with the cut-off score of 465.
It’s only been two weeks since the last round of invitation held on May 29, which means fewer candidates were able to enter the pool between the two draws, resulting in a five-point drop in the CRS score.
The time gap between draws influences the cut-off CRS score. The EE draws are usually held every two weeks. The cut-off CRS score was 470 in the last draw held on May 29, which was four weeks elapsed from the former draw. It allows a greater number of candidates with higher scores to enter the pool when the time gap is longer than two weeks.
So far, in 2019, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued a total of 38,450 Invitation to apply (ITAs) to Express Entry candidates, which is 6,250 more than it had issued at the same point in 2018.
The Express Entry system manages applications for three economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Each program has its requirements. Eligible candidates are issued a score in the Comprehensive Ranking System, known as CRS score, which determines their rank in the pool.
The highest-ranked candidates are awarded an ITA for Canadian permanent residence.
