2019-10-30 – Canada immigration authorities have passed 71,000 Invitations to Apply for Express Entry in 2019 with a new draw issuing ITAs to 3,900 candidates.

The October 30 draw saw a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score of 475, 11 points higher than the previous all-program draw.

The increased CRS score is a result of it being four weeks since the previous all-program draw, which took place on October 2.

The program-specific Federal Skilled Trades draw that took place on October 16 saw lower-scoring profiles drawn from the pool.

Higher-scoring profiles have therefore built up over four weeks, resulting in a higher minimum score.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has now invited 71,700 candidates in 2019, against a high-skilled immigration admission target of 81,400.
