EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW TO APPLY FOR PERMANENT RESIDENCE #152.

On June 11, 2020, The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration issued 3,559 Invitations to Apply (“ITA”) for Permanent Residence under the Express Entry system.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking Score (“CRS”) is currently 437 or higher. This draw only included candidates who adjusted their Canadian Experience Class with Express Entry. Tie-breaking rule in place.

Express Entry is Canada’s flagship application management system for the following economic immigration categories: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class, and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program.

Individuals who meet the eligibility criteria for at least one of these programs are placed in the Express Entry pool and are assigned a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score based upon the information in their profile compared to a transparent scoring criterion, including factors such as education, language ability, and work experience.

Candidates in the pool are ranked against one another based on their CRS score. Every few weeks, a Ministerial Instruction is published specifying the number of invitations to apply (ITA) for permanent residence that will be sent to candidates in the Express Entry pool on a specific date.
