Express Entry draw selects 529 applicants with a provincial nomination
On May 13, 529 Express Entry (EE) applicants with a provincial nomination received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in Canada.
In the latest EE draw, only applicants with a nomination were selected to apply for a Canada PR. Further, the applicants needed a CRS score of 718 to qualify in this draw. If you too received an invite in this draw then it means:
- Firstly, you have a valid express entry profile
- Secondly have a minimum CRS score of 718 or more
Express Entry (EE) system is one of Canada’s main immigration pathways. It helps the country hire and retain skilled workers. This system offers applicants permanent residence in Canada. Also, it handles applications from 3 economic immigration streams such as:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- Canadian Experience Class
To apply for a Canada PR through this program all applicants must:
- Create an EE profile
- Meet the terms of Human Capital Factors such as:
- Language Skills
- Education Level
- Work Experience
After that applicants get a ranking as per the information they submit to the program. Who so ever has a higher CRS score receives an ITA. Besides, if an EE applicant has a provincial nomination then they receive an extra 600 CRS score. As a result, their chances of receiving an invite in an EE draw increase majorly.
In the May 13 EE draw the tie break rule date and time used was March 19, 2020, at 12:53:21 UTC. It means that applicants who have a CRS score of 718 or more as well as applicants with CRS 718 score, who submitted their EE profile on this date and time, was selected in this draw.
IRCC recently is focusing more on PNP specific draws. As is evident from the last EE draw targeting 3,311 CEC applicants on April 30.
