Canada issues 4,200 invitations during Express Entry draw

Canada organized a new Express Entry draw recently to invite more eligible candidates. The minimum required Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score during the invitation round was 471, which marks a decrease of 1 point since the last all-program draw that was held on September 16.

Details of the draw

Candidates belonging to the Federal Skilled Worker Program category were the most successful for the third consecutive draw.

The tie-breaking rule used March 2, 2020, at 12:37:25 UTC as the cut-off. Canada has invited more than 78,350 Express Entry candidates in 2020 by now. This is more than the 69,420 invitations that were distributed at this same time back in 2017. Candidates with a CRS score of 471 or more could receive an ITA in this invitation round if they submitted their profiles prior to this time and date.

Canada issued a large number of invitations during this draw, which is an indication that the pandemic will not affect the country’s plan to be immigrant-friendly. Canada has made it clear time and again that they want to welcome high levels of immigration in 2021, and even after that.

Why Express Entry?

The Express Entry system in Canada is in charge of the profiles of candidates belonging to economic-class immigration programs like the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FST), the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSW), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Under the Express Entry system, eligible candidates in these programs and the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) are assigned a score on the basis of the Comprehensive Ranking System or CRS. Several factors are taken into account when evaluating candidates. These include age, education, work experience, and language proficiency. The candidates with the highest ranks are invited to receive an ITA, after which they can apply for permanent residence in Canada.
