Express Entry draw

In the April 29 Express Entry draw, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC) invited 589 provincial nominees to apply for permanent residence in Canada. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking Score(CRS) of the candidates invited in the draw was 692. This is the lowest CRS score requirement in any Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)-specific Express Entry draw held so far this year.
The candidates who have a provincial nomination receive 600 additional CRS score points. So the provincial nominees who could score at least 92 points under the human capital factors have received invitations in the draw.

Despite the COVID-19 crisis, Canada has been conducting Express Entry draws and inviting eligible candidates to apply for permanent residence in the country. The number Express Entry invitations issued by Canada in the first quarter of 2020 was higher than that of the same period in the last two years. However, Canada has not conducted any all-program draw after special preventive measures against the spread of COVID-19 came into place on March 18. All the seven Express Entry draws held after that targeted either provincial nominees or Canadian Experience Class candidates.
In the April 16 Express Entry draw, the minimum CRS score dropped to 455, the lowest this year. With the latest draw, the total number of Express Entry invitations issued in the month of April has reached   8,389. The total number of Express Entry ITAs issued so far this year is 30,989.
As in the previous draws, tie-break rule was applied in the April 29 draw too and the time stamp applied was March 11, 2020 at 13:46:21. It means all candidates who scored at least 692 and had submitted their Express Entry profiles before the said date and time received invitations in the draw.
