The Government of Canada invited 3,350 Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence in the June 26 Express Entry draw #120. The draw brings the number of invitations issued in 2019 to 41,800, on pace to surpass the record 89,800 invitations issued in 2018.
Eligible candidates under these categories are entered into the Express Entry pool, where they are ranked based on their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores. A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for placement in the Express Entry pool.
A candidate’s CRS score is based on factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French. The cut-off score in the latest draw was 462, three points lower than the previous draw held June 12 and marking the second consecutive cut-off score decrease since May 29, when it reached 470. The highest-ranked candidates are issued invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence, known as ITAs, through regular draws from the pool, which typically happen every two weeks.
IRCC ranks candidates in the pool using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). We select the highest-ranking candidates from the pool and invite them to apply for permanent residence.
IRCC has updated the table that shows how much money you need to settle in Canada. You may need to update your settlement fund numbers in your Express Entry profile. Making updates to your profile doesn’t change the date and time that we received it, so you’ll keep your rank if you’re in a tie-breaker situation.
