Second Express Entry draw in 24 hours – CRS score drops to 447

The Express Entry draws of Canada indicate a downward tendency in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) score requirements since the May 15 draw recorded the lowest CRS score since January 2019.

In the latest Express Entry round, 3,371CEC candidates with a CRS of 447 or more received invitations. The cut-off score of 447 is a five-point drop from the previous May 1 CEC draw which recorded a minimum score of 452 being the previously lowest CRS requirement of 2020.

The Draw of 15 May represents the second round of invitations to apply for permanent residency in Canada, within 24 hours. Another 529 ITAs were sent to the Express Entry candidates nominated on 14 May by the PNP. For these candidates, the minimum CRS score was 718.

The Canada Express Entry Program handles candidate profiles for three of the most important economic-class immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates are ranked on the basis of a CRS that takes into account factors such as age, education, work experience and English or French language abilities. Candidates are awarded a specific CRS Score. Most of those top-ranking candidates are invited to apply for a permanent residency in Canada through frequent drawing out from the pool, with the typical goal of processing their applications for a permanent residence within 6 months.

The latest draw has continued, with the cut-off CRS score decrease in all of the last four CEC drawings. The relatively frequent period and duration of draws maintained by IRCC over the last 2 months can somewhat explain this trend. The time between draws is an important factor which can influence the CRS cut-off. Shorter draws mean that fewer candidates have time to enter a profile in Express Entry pool.

In this draw the rule on tie-break used by immigrants, refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) was implemented on 23 December 2019 at 10:01:06 UTC. This implies that, before this date and time all CEC candidates with a CRS score of above 447 and above earned an ITA throughout this invitation Process. Today’s draw brings the total ITAs issued in 2020 to 38,200.

The Express Entry system remains operational, and candidates also have the opportunity to submit a profile, although Canada immigration policies and procedures have been subject to substantial changes since March 18 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Over the last nine weeks, IRCC has held ten Canadian Experience Class and Provincial Nominee draws inviting almost 19 500 Express Entry candidates. Candidates in both these categories are more likely to be in Canada already than others who arrive by other programs linked to Express Entry, meaning that the current travel restrictions do not impact these two categories.

Furthermore, the provinces tend to follow the Provincial Nominee Program. Provincial candidates can make the Express Entry pool extremely competitive. Those selected by a provincial Express Entry stream would be awarded an additional 600 points.
