New Express Entry Draw 529 PNP Candidates Invited With CRS Cut Off 718
Canada invited 529 Express Entry candidates to apply for PR who had received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program CRS cut off as 718.. Canada has now invited 34,829 immigration candidates so far this year.
The score seems high because with the provincial nomination these candidates received an additional 600 CRS points. In other words, a candidate with a CRS of 718 who recieved an Invitation to Apply ITA this round would have had a CRS of only 118 without the nomination. The previous Express Entry draw selected only CEC candidates and had a CRS cut off of 452, which is the lowest of the year so far.
The frequency of Express Entry draws has also changed since special coronavirus measures were implemented. At the start of the year, it seemed Express Entry draws were happening like clockwork every two weeks on Wednesday. CRS scores hovered around the 470s without much change.
Canadian immigration is managed by the federal government. Express Entry is the government’s system for managing immigration applications for three economic-class programs: Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, and Canadian Experience Class.
Canada remains on pace to achieve its Express Entry target of 85,800 ITAs in 2020, with 34,829 ITAs so far, compared with 31,250 at this time in 2019.
