3,350 Express Entry candidates invited to apply for permanent residence as cut-off score drops

Canada has issued 3,350 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence to Express Entry candidates with scores as low as 451 in a new draw held April 3.
The minimum score in today’s draw is one point lower than the cut-off score in the previous Express Entry invitation round on March 20, which was 452.
This was the third consecutive draw in which the cut-off score has gone down, a trend that may be attributed to the consistent two-week interval between draws.Time-between-draws-Express-Entry-drawThe tie-break used in the April 3 draw was set at January 9, 2019, at 07:35:09 UTC. This means that all candidates with a CRS score above 451, as well as those candidates with scores of 451 who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before this date and time, received an ITA in this invitation round.
The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main federal economic immigration programs — Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
Eligible candidates for each class are assigned a score under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and are entered into the Express Entry pool, where they are ranked accordingly.
A set number of the highest-ranked candidates are then issued an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residence (ITA) through regular draws from the pool.
The 3,350 ITAs issued in the April 3 draw bring the total issued in 2019 to 24,550.
Canada is currently ahead of the pace it had set in 2018, which finished with a record 89,800 ITAs issued. A look at ITA results by April 3 for both years shows 2019 ahead of 2018 by 7,050 ITAs.ITAs-issued-as-of-April-3-Express-EntryThis was the fifth consecutive draw in which Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued 3,350 ITAs. Draw sizes, however, may increase in the coming weeks and months given Canada’s higher admissions targets for 2019 and 2020 for the three economic immigration classes managed by the Express Entry system.
