Federal express entry program is one of the most popular immigration programs to manage the applications of skilled workers of different nationalities. It has three sub-categories which include Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class. It is a point-based immigration system which evaluates profiles on credentials like age, education, work experience and language proficiency. Moreover, the job offer is not mandatory for an applicant to become eligible for the Express entry system.
Generally, draws occur every two weeks and this draw was not an exception. The increase or decrease of a minimum cut-off depends on the time gap between two consecutive draws. On increasing the time-gap between the draws, the Express Entry pool receives more number of applications from higher-scoring candidates which ultimately leads to the higher cut-off score in the coming draws. In past, scores have gone up due to long time gap between gaps; however, on-time draws leads to decrease in cut-off.
In the last draw held on September 18, 2019, the minimum cut-off was 462; however, in this draw, the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score required for selection in today’s draw was 464.
The tie-break used in today’s draw by IRCC was September 20, 2019, at 15:05:04 UTC. It means that all those candidates who received at least CRS score of 464 and entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before the tie-break date and time are eligible to receive an ITA through the draw.
This larger draw size reflects the higher admissions targets for both 2019 and 2020. So this is the right time to apply for PR through the Express entry system. If you want to consider your profile for Express Entry pool, you need to first check your eligibility. On being eligible, create your profile for Express Entry pool.
