The Government of Canada invited 3,350 Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a draw held May 1.
The cut-off score in today’s draw was 450, which is one point lower than the minimum score in the previous draw on April 17, which was 451. This is the fourth time that the cut-off Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score has decreased since February 20.
Today’s draw brings the number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) issued to Express Entry candidates in 2019 to 31,250.
This puts 2019 6,750 ITAs ahead of the number issued at this same point in 2018, a year that saw Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) establish a new Express Entry ITA record of 89,800 invitations issued in a single year.
