Canada Invites 3,350 Candidates as the Biweekly Pace Resumes

3,350 candidates were invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence in June 12 round of Express Entry draw, with minimum Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) score lower than the last draw.

The government of Canada seems to have returned to bi-weekly draw as another Express Entry draw was held on Wednesday, June 12 - two weeks after May 29 draw - inviting 3,350 candidates for permanent residence with 465 cut-off score. This was five points lower than last draw at 470.

The latest draw brings the number of Invitation to Apply (ITAs) issued to Express Entry candidates by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in 2019 to 38,450. This is 6,250 higher than the figure of the same time in the record breaking last year.

Express Entry System

Three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs are managed by Express Entry system. The programs give candidates the opportunity of becoming permanent residents in Canada based on their ranking in the pool.

Each candidate is issued a score on the basis of language (English or French) proficiency, education, age as well as skilled work experience after which the highest ranking candidates are issued ITAs for permanent residence via the draws held regularly, usually every two weeks, by the government.

465 minimum score in this draw was as a result of the gap between two draws. Usually, the bigger the gap, the higher the score, which explains why May 29's draw had 470 cut-off . It  came four weeks after the previous Draw, giving candidates with higher scores to join the stream. June 6, 2019, at 13:51:59 UTC was the tie break used in the latest draw.

A record high of 89,800 candidates were invited for permanent residence in Canada through Express Entry in 2018, and the country has even higher targets for 2019 and 2020.
