5000 Invitations Issued During Latest Express Entry Draw

Canadian immigration has suffered significantly because of the pandemic. The country is trying its best to make up for the losses and issue more invitations in the near future. 

On December 9, Canada hosted another Express Entry draw to invite candidates who are eligible to apply for permanent residence. Express Entry is the main backbone of Canadian immigration and is the ideal application management system.

It is responsible for the applicants belonging to the Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Worker Program. 

Details of the draw

During the December 9 draw, 5000 immigration candidates received invitations. They were required to have a CRS score of 469 at the very least. Applicants in Express Entry programs and PNPs are assigned ranks on the basis of human capital factors like education, age, professional experience, and language proficiency.

The tie-breaking rule was used during this draw. This means that the candidates who were chosen to receive invitations had to have a minimum CRS score of 469 and submitted their profile prior to 22:06:05 UTC, June 4, 2020, via Express Entry.

Since Canada wants to invite more candidates in the next two years, they are already getting a step ahead.
