The CRS cut-off score falls by three points for the new Express Entry draw

Robert Cannon



Express Entry Program and Permanent citizenship

The Express Entry program is one of the most popular choices for potential immigrants to get a shot at permanent citizenship. The Government of Canada distributed 3,350 invitations among Express Entry candidates for the draw. They were able to apply for Canadian permanent residence during the new draw that was held on 26th June.

Surprisingly, the cut-off score for this draw was three points lower as compared to the previous draw that was conducted on 12th June. The cut-off score was marked at 462, while the previous draw’s cutoff was 465. It is important to note that this draw was the second consecutive draw to have witnessed a fall in the cut-off score decrease since 29th May when the score was marked at 470.

The Express Entry system is largely responsible for Canada’s smooth immigration program. It provides the provinces with a pool of skilled foreign workers from where they are chosen for nominations. The candidates are classified under the three main economic-class immigration categories in Canada, which are the Federal Skilled Trades Class, the Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Worker Class.

All the candidates who are deemed eligible in these categories are put into the Express Entry pool so they can be ranked. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score acts as the key indicator of a candidate’s suitability for permanent citizenship.

The CRS score is calculated based on a variety of factors like age, proficiency in English or French, education, and work experience. It is not mandatory for the prospective candidates to have a job offer in order to qualify for the Express Entry pool. The candidates who receive the highest ranks are given invitations, also called ITA-s, via which they can apply for Canadian permanent residence.
