A new invitation round held on September 18 invited 3,600 federal Express Entry (EE) candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score has marginally dropped by 1 point in the latest Express Entry draw as the previous draw had a cut-off score of 463. The drop in the CRS score must have made some applicants eligible for the ITA, however, applicants expecting a bigger fall in the CRS score might be disappointed with just 1 point reduction in the cut-off.
The latest draw also brings the total number of invitations to apply (ITAs) issued this year to 63,400. The September 18 draw saw a tie break which was applied by IRCC and the time stamp used as August 29, 2019, at 07:57:13 UTC, which means all the candidates with a CRS score of and above 462, and who had submitted their profile in the Express Entry pool before the above mentioned date and time, received invitations in this draw.
If you’re someone with low CRS score, then don’t be disheartened, you can still increase your points through a variety of options and most valuable of which is to obtain a provincial nomination, which will award you with an additional 600 points and increases your chances to get an ITA for Canadian permanent residence.
The candidates who received invitations in the latest Express Entry draw will get 60 days to submit their complete application for Canadian permanent residence.
