Express Entry: ITAs up CRS down in new all-program draw
IRCC holds second all-program draw since July 6 after 18-month hiatus, during which Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) only invited candidates eligible for immigration through either the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Canada invited 1,750 Express Entry Candidates to apply for permanent residence on July 20. Candidates were invited if they had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 542. There was no program specified for this draw, meaning candidates from the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) had the potential to be invited.
The CRS requirement for the new draw is 15 points lower than the previous all-program on July 6, when the minimum cut-off score was 577. Also, Canada issued 250 more invitations in this draw compared to the previous round of 1,500 invitations.
