Express Entry CEC Draw Invites Candidates With Scores As Low As 431
Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence were issued to Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program candidates with CRS as low as 431.Today’s draw cut-off score of 431 was 6 points lower than the cut-off score in the last CEC Express Entry draw, which was 437.
This draw follows the 392 ITAs issued to Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates of before draw, bringing the total of ITAs issued over the past two days to 3,900.
Canada’s Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FST) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
CRS cut-off scores for CEC candidates have declined in every single CEC draw since the introduction of travel restrictions.There has been a significant downward trend in CRS cut-offs since the start of the pandemic, and given they have declined in every single CEC draw in recent months, it seems like there is potential for scores to continue to drop.
Although IRCC has not yet provided information as to when the next FSW draw would happen, prospective Canadian immigration candidates are encouraged to continue to submit profiles to the Express Entry pool.This was the 21st round of invitations under Express Entry in 2020 and the 154th overall.
Canada has now issued over 30,000 ITAs to Express Entry candidates despite mid-March coronavirus border restrictions.So far in 2020, Canada has issued 49,900 ITAs.
