Express Entry CEC draw issues invitations to candidates with scores of 431

The coronavirus pandemic led Canada to impose temporary travel restrictions. However, that has not stopped the country from continuing its immigration process. Canada has issued more than 30,000 ITAs and distributed them among Express Entry candidates despite the border restrictions.

Details about the draw:

The Express Entry draw on 25th June saw 3,508 immigration candidates and their families receiving invitations. They will now be able to apply for permanent residence in Canada. Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence were assigned to candidates belonging to the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program. The least Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score to qualify for the invitation was 431. It marked the lowest CRS score for CEC candidates since a May 31, 2017 draw that recorded a minimum CRS of 413.

The draw used the tie-breaking rule that was implemented on April 3, 2020, at 12:56:32 UTC. Candidates with the required Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score were considered in the invitation round as long as they submitted their profile before the specified date and time. The last CEC Express Entry draw had a minimum score of 437.

Approach of the IRCC:


Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has been focusing on CEC and PNP candidates in the last three months since they have the highest likelihood of already being in Canada. They will not feel the effects of the current border restrictions. The cut-off scores for CEC candidates have been readily falling with each new CEC draw ever since the restrictions were imposed. The draws have been scheduled erratically as well.

IRCC is yet to provide updates about the next FSW draw, but prospective immigration candidates will be able to submit their profiles to the Express Entry pool.

Till now, Canada has distributed 49,900 ITAs in 2020.
