IRCC Updated the CRS Score on the Website

Peter Fey




Latest reports have emerged that Canada issued invitations to Express Entry applicants on September 14, with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score of 510 instead of 511 as it was posted on the website earlier. The difference in the score explains that the applicants who scored at least 510 points received an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residency. However, it is essential to understand that the score is still relatively higher as compared to the other all-program Express Entry draws, it is the lowest score since the start of draws on July 6, 2022.

This past Wednesday, it has been noted that Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) changed their ministerial instructions at around 3 p.m Eastern Time. Interestingly, the website mentioned the minimum CRS cut-off was 511, however, some online reports highlighted that the applicants received an ITA with a score of 510.

In the meantime, Canada Immigration Minister Sean Fraser has addressed the country and said that Canada is on track to increase its immigration goal of issuing permanent residency to more than 430,000 immigrants by the end of this year. On September 14, the country recently organized a sixth all-program express entry draw issuing 3,250 invitations to apply for an Express Entry visa. IRCC also resume their all-program draws for immigration on July 6.

During the pandemic, IRCC put a hold on all-program Express Entry draws for over 1.5 years, starting in December 2020. During this phase, applicants eligible for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) were invited to apply. However, CEC draws were also paused in September 2021.

The key highlights of the latest express entry draw include, in this draw invitations issued to the applicants from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).


Immigration Minister mentioned, “currently what we’re experiencing is a record number of cases come in for applications and record productivity. Although, the demand is exceeding our processing capacity for the time being.” Until the last draw held on August 31, the number of applicants receiving ITAs increased by 250 with each draw. Last week experienced an increase of 500 invitations to apply (ITAs).
