IRCC Invites Express Entry Candidates With CRS Scores As Low as 241
Express Entry candidates eligible under the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC), as well as candidates with an enhanced provincial nomination, were the big winners in the November 1 draws, which mirrored similar draws that took place on May 26. In the latest draws, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited FSTC candidates with 241 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points to apply for permanent residence. The CRS cut-off threshold for provincial nominee candidates was 673 points.
In total, 795 candidates were issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) following the November 1 draws, 505 of whom were FSTC candidates, with the remaining 290 being candidates who have obtained a provincial nomination through one of the Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams.
Today’s draw marks the second time this year IRCC has conducted program-specific draws for FSTC candidates and those with a provincial nomination. The first draw following the May 26 program-specific draws reverted to the norm, which is to say that all candidates in the pool, including Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates, were eligible for selection. That draw, which took place on May 31, saw a CRS cut-off threshold of 413 — the lowest threshold ever since Express Entry was first launched in January, 2015.
