The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of the candidates invited in the latest draw ranged between 439 and 459. With the CRS cut-off scores in recent federal Express Entry draws hovering around 450, an invitation through Ontario Tech Draw gives more possibility for an Express Entry candidate to obtain permanent residence in Canada.
The invited candidates can submit the complete application for provincial nomination from Ontario.  If they are successful in obtaining provincial nomination, they will receive an additional 600 CRS score points that would guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
