On November 25, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held another immigration draw to issue 5,000 invitations to the Express Entry candidates. The highlight of this draw is that selected candidates needed to score 469 to get an invitation to apply. For the first time in 2020, the CRS has slipped below 470 in an all-program draw, allowing thousands of Canadian immigration aspirants to fulfill their dream of permanently moving to Canada.
The recent draw is excellent news as it highlights Canada’s commitment to bring more newcomers as permanent residents.
The latest draw brings the total number of ITAs issued in the year 2020 to 97,350. Considering the speed of the draws and Canada’s promise to invite more foreign workers, it won’t be wrong to say that this year turned out to be a record-breaking year despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The previous Express Entry draw saw 5,000 ITAs that almost touched the target set by the Canadian government.
A comprehensive ranking score is one of the most critical components in the Express Entry system. The points are allocated to the applicants based on human capital skills, transferability, and other factors.
The IRCC has applied the tie-breaking rule for this draw to rank candidates with the same CRS score. So, applicants who have submitted their application in the express entry pool before October 15, 2020, at 08:50:10 UTC, received invitations to apply in this draw.
What is the Express Entry System?
Express Entry is the most popular online system that manages applications for Canadian permanent residency. The system works applications submitted under three economic migration categories and some provincial nominee programs. These categories are:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
- Federal Skilled Trade
- Canadian Experience Class
Applicants receive points based on multiple factors, such as age, work experience, education, language proficiency, and other adaptability factors. Applicants matching or above the declared draw score are invited to submit a complete application for permanent residency.
With the CRS score moving down, this is the right time to apply for Canadian immigration and take a chance to live and work in one of the world’s strongest economies.
