CRS score drops to the lowest at 437 in Express Entry draw

Express Entry draw

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut-off score dropped to 437 in the June 11 Express Entry draw that exclusively targeted Canada Experience Class(CEC) candidates. This is the lowest CRS requirement in any CEC-specific Express Entry draw held since 2017. It also marked a decrease by three points compared to the previous CEC-specific draw held on May 28.  A total of 3559 candidates received Invitations to Apply for permanent residence in the latest draw, which makes the second largest draw to have held after Canada introduced certain restrictive measures in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak.

In the PNP-specific Express Entry draw held the previous day on June 10, a total of 341 provincial nominees with a CRS score of 743 had received Invitations to Apply for permanent residence from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC). The tie-break date and time applied in the draw were May 25, 2020, at 00:31:43 UTC. It means not all candidates who have a minimum CRS score of 437 received invitations in the draw, but only those who had submitted their profiles before the said date and time.

With the latest draw, the total number of ITAs issued so far this year 46000. This number is higher compared to the number of ITAs issued during the same period last year and the year before. It shows that the Express Entry system of Canada remains active despite the restrictions introduced in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country. In the past two months alone, the IRCC conducted 13 Express Entry draws, though they alternately targeted provincial nominees and CEC candidates.

This is mainly because a vast majority of CEC candidates are already there in Canada and they do not have to travel from abroad. Similarly, PNPs are also allowed to meet their annual allocations.

Canada has also given some relaxations regarding the documents that have to be submitted along with the application for permanent residence. The candidates may submit the application along with missing documents, provided they include a letter of explanation as to why they could not submit all the documents. These candidates will be given a relaxation of 90 days to submit all the required documents.
