Express Entry Draw 110 - Lowest CRS score cutoff in past year

During the Canada Express Entry Latest Draw (110th Draw), which was conducted on January 30, 2019, about 3350 applicants received ITA.
express-entry-draw The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score in today’s draw was 438, which is a five-point reduction over the previous invitation round on January 23 and the lowest minimum score for an all-program draw through Canada’s Express Entry system since October 4, 2017.
The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three Federal High Skilled economic immigration categories - the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates who meet the eligibility requirements for these categories are entered into the Express Entry pool and are givena ranking score that is based on factors such as their age, education, work experience and proficiency in English or French.
The highest-scoring candidates are then issued invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular invitation rounds, which are typically held every two weeks.
The one-week interval between last week and this week’s draw helps explain today’s low score - less time between draws means the pool of candidates has less time to replenish with higher-scoring candidates. CRS-AND-TIME-DRAWIRCC applied its tie-break rule in the January 30 draw. The time stamp used was April 26, 2018, at 05:00:46 UTC. This means that all candidates with a CRS score above 438, as well as those candidates with scores of 438, who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before the selected date and time, received anInvitation to Apply (ITA) in this invitation round.
The 3,350 ITAs issued in today’s draw brings this month’s ITA total to 11,150 - the most invitations issued in January since the Express Entry system’s introduction in 2015.Largest-Draw-of-ITAs-in-JanuaryThis quick start reflects Canada’s higher admissions targets for 2019 and 2020 for candidates in its three Federal High Skilled economic immigration categories, most of whom have their applications for permanent resident status processed through the Express Entry system.
In order to meet its admissions targets for 2019 and 2020, it is expected that IRCCwill have to issue more ITAs over the course of this year than it did in 2018 - a year that saw IRCCset a new ITA record.
The following are hypothetical examples of candidates who would have obtained an ITA in the January 30 draw:
Jade is 29-years-old and holds a bachelor’s degree. She has been working for three years outside Canada as an administrative assistant. She has never studied or worked in Canada. Jade took the IELTS exam, and obtained a score of 8 in each category. Her CRS score of 438 would have been sufficient to obtain an ITA in today’s draw.
Melanie and Christian are 33 and 35-years-old, respectively. Melanie holds a bachelor’s degree as well as a two-year certificate and has been working for three years as a human resources consultant. Christian holds a bachelor’s degree and has been working for five years as a rental agent. Neither has studied or worked in Canada.
Melanie took the IELTS exam and obtained a score of 8 in listening and reading and a score of 7 in speaking and writing. Christian also took the IELTS, and obtained a score of 6 under all categories. Melanie applied as the principal applicant and her CRS score of 438 would have been sufficient to obtain an ITA in today’s draw.
