Second Express Entry Draw in a Week Sees Reduction in Minimum CRS Score Requirement

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has invited 2,991 candidates in the Express Entry pool to apply for permanent residence in the second draw to take place so far this August.

Candidates with 433 or more Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) as a result of the August 9 draw. This is the lowest CRS cut-off threshold since May, and therefore the lowest since changes to the CRS — including the introduction of additional points for French speakers and candidates with a sibling in Canada — were implemented in early June.

The three previous draws that took place since those changes came into effect all had a CRS cut-off threshold in the 440’s. The fact that the latest draw followed quickly after the previous draw, which took place exactly a week ago on August 2, would have been a contributing factor to the decrease in the threshold this time around, as longer gaps between draws allow more candidates to enter the pool.

 

*Note: Draws of May 26 invited provincial nominees with a minimum CRS score of 775, and candidates in the Federal Skilled Trades Class with a minimum score of 199.

Getting a precious Invitation to Apply

The following hypothetical scenarios showcase how a diverse range of candidates in the pool can obtain an ITA, allowing them to submit an application for permanent residence. Accompanying family members, including spouses or common-law partners, as well as dependent children, may also come to Canada along with the principal applicant. IRCC aims to process applications within six months.
