The First Express Draw of 2020| CRS score; 473.

The very first Express Entry draw was successfully conducted on the 8th of January 2020, which witnessed the invitation of over 3,400 candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 473. This draw witnessed a four-point increase in the Comprehensive Ranking score from 469-473 and it is also slightly larger than the previous invitation round held December 19, which issued 3,200 ITAs.  



The Express Entry stream since inception in 2015 has remained Canada’s primary source of skilled foreign workers and has proven to be an amazing platform to manage the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s three federal high-skilled immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Workers Class, Federal Skilled Trade Class, and Canadian Experience Class. 

Eligible candidates for each of the programs were issued comprehensive scores based on the four core major factors such as age, level of education, work experience and language proficiency In French or English languages. Whereas, the set number of high-scoring candidates are issued an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence through the periodic Express Entry draws. 

 The government of Canada has shed more light on its target for Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), a portion of which is also managed by the Express Entry system, which is set to rise to 67,800 in 2020 and 71,300 in 2021. There are about nine Canadian provinces and two territories have what is known as “enhanced” PNP streams that are linked to the Express Entry system which would be used to achieve these future goals. 

These streams — many of which have lower or even no CRS score requirement — automatically allows participating provinces and territories to select Express Entry candidates and issues invite which in turn qualifies them to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. 

We are well aware that Express Entry candidates who obtain a provincial nomination automatically receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score which places them at a higher advantage stance above other candidates in the pool and also effectively guarantees an ITA. The higher minimum score in just concluded draw could be explained by the fact that a total of 20 days elapsed between these invitation rounds. When more than two weeks pass between draws, the minimum score has a tendency to rise. 

 Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied a tie-break time and date of December 27, 2019, at 13:35:09 UTC in this draw. This means that all candidates with a score of 473 who submitted their profile before this date and time received an ITA. 

With both Justin Trudeau (Prime Minister) and Marco Mendicino (Immigration Minister)  of the Liberal party in charge, aspiring immigrants can expect that immigration targets would be increased sparingly to take in a whole lot of foreign skilled workers.
