The 135th Express Entry draw witnessed the issuance of 3,400 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to aspiring candidates. Although recent draws have witnessed a relatively high minimum CRS cut-offs, this draw brings a two-point drop to 471 compared to the last draw at 473, a trend which we hope to see continue. The Government of Canada issued 3,400 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence to Express Entry candidates in a draw held January 22.

Indeed we are certain that the federal government continues to work toward its goal of welcoming more than one million newcomers over the next three years. Therefore we are optimistic that the cut-off score will DROP as invitations to apply are issued to more eligible candidates in the upcoming weeks.


The Express Entry system is Canada’s primary source of skilled foreign workers. Since its inception in 2015, it has managed the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s three federal high-skilled immigration programs. 

Eligible candidates for each program are issued a score under Express Entry’s CRS, which awards points for factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.

While a job offer is not required in order to be eligible under the Express Entry system, the CRS does award additional points to candidates who have one.

A set number of the highest-scoring candidates are issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws from the pool, which typically take place every two weeks.

Canada has higher admissions targets for 2020 and 2021 for the various programs managed by the Express Entry system.

The target for new permanent resident admissions through the three federal high-skilled programs is slated to rise to 85,800 this year and 88,800 in 2021
