The cut-off of The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) has decreased 7 points since February this year. In addition to this, the draw brought a wonderful opportunity for the candidates who want to settle in Canada as the government of Canada invited 3,350 Express Entry aspirants for permanent residency (PR).
The selection of the Candidates depends upon the express entry score. Various factors such as age, skills, experience, and language proficiency influence the selection procedure. Candidates with the highest points get the priority for permanent residency in Canada.
The government of Canada uses the “Express Entry” system to manage the applications of the candidates looking for permanent residency in Canada. There are three immigration programs under which candidates can apply for Express Entry.

This program is for skilled persons with Canadian skilled work experience who want to settle permanently in Canada. The minimum requirements are English language proficiency and legal job experience in Canada of at least 1 year.

The Government of Canada is increasingly offering “Invitations to Apply” (ITAs) and if the trend continues then it can easily break the last year’s record of 89,800 ITAs which is the highest record so far. Furthermore, the minimum points required for express entry could fall more if IRCC conducts more frequent draws this year.
