Canada Express Entry : 4200 Applicants Invited


Express Entry: Canada Invites 4,200 Immigration Candidates

There were 69,950 invitations sent to the Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residency. The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) candidates were included in the draw held on 2nd September 2020.    

The FSWP candidates were among the successful candidates in this draw. Since 18th March, this draw was the third all program and it marked the 162nd draw that has been held by the IRCC overall.

There was a decrease in the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score by 1 point over the previous all-program draw since August 5. The minimum CRS score required in this draw was 475.

The invitations sent to apply for permanent residency which was around 4200 was the most since the last 4500 invitations sent on February 19, 2020, before the coronavirus pandemic. This massive number of invitations is an indication that the Canadian government is far more inclined and reluctant in having high levels of immigrants for the year 2021 and beyond.

In this draw, the FSWP applicants were the most successful ones to get an invitation. The highest-ranking candidates are given the ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian Permanent Residency through these express entry draws. These draws take place every two weeks and the majority of the candidates included in this draw are from all three Express Entry categories.

The total number of ITA’s went up to 69950 which itself is a new record up to this date and making this draw the 29th draw of the year 2020. 

A tiebreaker rule was also used by IRCC in this draw. The timeslot for this draw was 2nd September at 14:17:32 UTC. The meaning for that is the applicants with the CRS score of 475 and who have submitted their profile in the pool before this date and time will be selected for an invitation round.

This tie-breaker rule is used by the Canadian government to segregate candidates with the same CRS score in this draw it was 475. The selected candidates then get an invitation to apply for a Permanent Residency visa to Canada.

CRS score cut-off depends on many factors like the size of the draw and the time duration between consecutive draws. The larger the size of the draw, the more is the possibility of producing a lower CRS score cut-off. The same happens with the time duration, the shorter the duration between two draws, the more are the chances of getting a low CRS score cut-off.

The most eligible and competent candidates are given a score under the Express Entry CRS system. This system evaluates applicants based on factors like education, age, working experience, and language proficiency. Based on these factors they all are given a score corresponding to different parameters and programs. 

Even though a job is not mandatory to be eligible for the Express Entry program, but still it offers the applicant to have a cutting edge over other applicants and also gives you additional points as well.

The standard processing time taken by the Canadian government is around 6 months if the application is filed through the Express Entry program.
