To apply for new Express Entry draw 2,750 candidates have been invited by Canada

The Government of Canada has welcomed 2,750 competitors in the federal Express Entry pool to apply for Canadian lasting habitation in a draw that occurred Dec. 6. The cut-off Comprehensive Ranking System score for this draw was 452.

The draw indeed influenced utilization of the attach to break system that Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) presented in June. While a few applicants with a score of 452 got Invitations To Apply (ITAs), the tie-break implies that exclusive those candidates with a CRS score of 452 who entered their profiles in the Express Entry pool before a predetermined date and time got an ITA. For this situation, that time and date were November 16, 2017, at 04:20:20 UTC.

The present cut-off score of 452 is up 13 points over the past draw, which occurred on Nov. 15. This is likely because of the time that passed between the two draws, which enabled more contender to enter the Express Entry pool and the extent of the draw.

A cut-off CRS score of 452 is excellent given the scope of CRS scores in 2017, with CRS cut-off scores in the 430s happening regularly. On very rare events, scores extended into the low 400s and high 450s.

Given the Government of Canada’s expanded ITA focuses on the three Express Entry economic immigration classes for 2018, it is trusted the CRS scores will keep on dropping. IRCC should perform either bigger or more successive draw from Express Entry pool in the new year, or both. Each of those situations could have the impact of bringing down the cut-off CRS score
