Canada: 3,753 Invitations Issued. Record Low CRS Score of 431

And yet once again the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have set a new record. The Canada’s latest Express Entry Draw opened with the lowest Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points on 5th April. Applicants having 431 or more CRS points have received Invitation to Apply for the Permanent Residency. 

3,753 candidates received Invitation to Apply in the 8th Express Entry Draw this year. A total of 28,385 invitations have been issued this year through Express Entry Draw. Prior to this draw the previous record low was observed on 1st March draw when the applicants with a score of 434 or more CRS points were issued with an invitation to apply for Permanent Residency.

There were major changes announced in the month of November 2016 in the CRS point calculation when the points for the arranged employment were reduced to 50 – 200 instead of 600. IRCC has also announced to implement some changes to the Comprehensive Ranking System in the month of June this year. As per the announcement additional points will be awarded for French speaking candidates and to those who have a sibling residing in Canada on PR or Citizenship.

A couple of days ago, Attorney David Cohen had commented in regards to decreasing number of CRS points that “if draw sizes remain relatively large... we may see lower CRS thresholds deeper into 2017.” Later after yesterday’s draw, he has added that “it is clear that large draw sizes and decreasing CRS cut-off thresholds are linked. We can look forward to more invitations being issued through the second quarter of this year and beyond.”
