Canada Express Entry

Thursday, April 9, saw two Express Entry draws taking place consecutively. A sum total of 3,294 invitations were issued to candidates belonging to the Canadian Experience Class who will now be able to apply for permanent residence in Canada. Candidates who had ranking scores of 464 and above were selected during the draw. This is a rare event because two draws usually do not take place on the same day. Moreover, the second draw of the day also witnessed the lowest minimum CRS score requirement ever since October 2019.

The April 9 draw was the fourth program-specific Express Entry draw to be organized consecutively. It was the second one to be held in less than a month that specifically targeted candidates belonging to the Canadian Experience Class. This stream is available for foreign nationals who have at least a year of work experience in Canada. However, they have to satisfy additional criteria if they want to be eligible.

The candidates who had CRS scores more than 464 were given an ITA. Moreover, the candidates with scores of 464 who had registered profiles in the Express Entry pool prior to the specified date and time also got an ITA.


With the 3,294 ITAs issued during this draw, the total number of invitations has come to 26,500 in 2020. The IRCC is holding scheduled Express Entry invitation rounds regularly in spite of the coronavirus measures.
