IRCC Invites Express Entry Candidates With CRS Scores As Low as 241
The big winners in the November 1 draw were the applicants who were eligible under the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) and the candidates with an enhanced provincial nomination. In the draws which have been done recently immigration, refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited the candidates who have 241 CRS points to apply for the permanent residence. Furthermore, 673 was the threshold cut off for provincial nominee candidates.
In the November 1, draws about 795 candidates were given Invitation to Apply ITA, from which around 505 candidates were of FTSC and the remaining ones belonged from the provincial nominee program. The first draw on May 26, said that all the candidates in the pool of Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) were eligible for the selection. The draw which happened on May 31 showed a threshold of 413 CRS which was the lowest threshold ever seen since Express Entry launched in January 2015.
The 10 draws which taken place since May 26 and November 1 have been a fair game and it is to say that they would benefit almost all the candidates as IRCC has removed a specific group of candidates from the pool. All the candidates of the provincial nomination who had a 674 CRS score or above were invited. The FST candidates were also invited and all the applicants of FST and CEC would move up the ranking as the result of these draws.
Along with the CRS cut-off thresholds and program-specific draws, it has become easier to evaluate and review that candidates from different backgrounds have been invited to apply for the permanent residence.
These are some hypothetical scenarios.
Ali, who is a 42 year old individual and is also an industrial electrician, he has a two-year post-secondary education credential although he has never worked or studied in the country. He has just recently received a two-year post-secondary education credential from an employer based in Canada. He has six years of working experience outside the country which gives him a total score of 282 CRS points, also an FTSC candidate who recently obtained an ITA.
Monica, who is a 34 year old woman, she has a six years working experience outside the country and adequate language ability. Her spouse also has an intermediate language ability and hold a Bachelor’s degree. She entered the pool as a FSW candidate with 69 points then after some time she got a provincial nomination under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) International Skilled Worker: Express Entry sub-category. This made her CRS points to double up from 303 to 909 and now she along with her family can apply for Canadian Immigration.
The ITAs issued due to the draws since January to 2017 are 140,619 and most of these having been issued in the year 2017 only i.e. 75,775.
He further added, “The federal government, as well as provincial counterparts, is taking the approach that the Express Entry pool is a rich source of talent, and anyone in the pool can benefit from a federal or provincial strategy to welcome particular newcomers and their families to Canada. The upshot is that to optimize one’s chances of success, candidates first need to get in the pool.”
