The cut-off score in the latest EE draw held on 26th June was 462 which is 3 points lesser than the previous draw. The last draw was held on 12th June with 3,350 invitations being issued with a cut-off of 465.
The latest draw also saw 3,350 invitations for Canadian Permanent Residence. This was the second consecutive draw which saw a reduction in the cut-off score after the 29th May draw with 470 points.
The 29th May draw had a cut-off which was higher than the usual. This was because there was a 1-month gap between the draws that included all the main immigration streams. The June draws were held within a gap of 2 weeks.
Canada has so far issued a total of 41,800 invitations in 2019. It is ahead by 2,100 as compared to 2018 during the same period, as per CIC News.
The immigration intake of Canada in 2018 was 89,800. However, the immigration targets for 2019 and 2020 have seen a significant increase. Thus, it is expected that the immigration intake would be higher in 2019.
Canada’s Express Entry program manages candidates under 3 economic migration programs. These are the :
- Federal Skilled Worker Program
- Federal Skilled Trades Program
- Canadian Experience Class
Eligible candidates enter the Express Entry pool where they are ranked based on their CRS score. The CRS score is based on multiple factors like age, education, work experience, language skills etc.
It is not mandatory to have a job offer to enter the Express Entry pool.
The highest ranked candidates are given Invitations to Apply in regular draws. Once they receive an ITA, candidates have 60 days time to submit an application for Permanent Residence of Canada.
