New Express Entry Draw has marked Lowest CRS for CEC Candidates

New Express Entry Draw has marked Lowest CRS for CEC Candidates

In the latest Canada's Express Entry draw cut-off scores see yet another drop in CRS scores. The new Express Entry round issued 3,559 invitations to CEC candidates on June 11. This was lowest CRS for CEC Candidates since 2017.

Lowest CRS for CEC

Latest cut-off score of 437  is a decrease of three points from the previous CEC draw on May 28, which had a minimum score of 440 and was the lowest CRS requirement of 2020. That draw was also the largest CEC-specific Express Entry draw since May 1st, and the second-largest since Canada introduced special coronavirus measures in the middle of March.

On June 11th, This draw was the second invitation round this week to issue Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence.

This Express Entry Draw meant that this Lowest CRS for CEC can further fall to lowest as this has been a trend in upcoming express entry draws.

Another 341 ITAs were issued to Express Entry candidates nominated through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Similarily on June 10. The minimum CRS score for these candidates was 743. In which 600 points were gifted due to Invitation for provincial Nomination Program.

Express Entry draw cut-offs continue to plummet as Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invites a larger number of CEC-specific candidates.

We have already witness that time between draws is an important factor that can have an effect on the CRS cut-off score. Shorter intervals between draws mean fewer candidates have time to enter a profile in the Express Entry pool.

June 11th draw continued a trend that has seen the cut-off CRS score decrease in each of the last seven CEC draws held since the last all-program draw on March 4, 2020.

Canada’s Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic-class immigration programs — the 

Candidates are ranked based on a score awarded under Express Entry’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) that considers factors such as

  • Age,
  • Education,
  • Skilled work experience and
  • Language ability in English or French.

A set number of the highest-ranked candidates receive an ITA through regular draws from the pool and IRCC typically aims to process applications for permanent residence within six months.

IRCC applied its tie-break rule in this draw and the date and time used was May 25, 2020, at 00:31:43  UTC. This means that all CEC candidates with a CRS score of at least 437 who submitted their profile before this date and time, received an ITA in this invitation round.

June 11th draw brings the total ITAs issued in 2020 to 46,000. Still ahead of the number of ITAs issued at this time last year and the year before.

Despite the fact that Canada’s immigration policies and procedures have undergone major changes since March 18 due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the Express Entry system has remained operational and candidates can still submit a profile.

IRCC has held a total of thirteen

draws  over the past two months.

Both categories of applicants are more likely to already be in Canada than those arriving through other Express entry-linked programs, which means they will not be impacted by the current travel restrictions.

Canada Family Visa

Canada Family Visa

Canada Prime Minister on Canada Family Visa – Justin Trudeau said in its recent interaction that Canada is looking to ease travel for families. 

Canada’s prime minister has said the country is exploring easing restrictions currently preventing some close family members from entering so we can assume that in some time we can see some changes in Canada family Visa process.

Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has stated that Canada is exploring easing travel restrictions that currently prevent some individuals from crossing the U.S. border to enter Canada to reunite with their family.

Trudeau made the remarks during his daily coronavirus briefing to the Canadian public on Friday May 29.

The Canada-U.S. border was first closed to non-essential travel effective Saturday March 20th by mutual agreement as both countries sought to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The travel restrictions were initially put in place for 30 days, but have since been extended on two occasions, including most recently on May 20th. 

Among those exempt from the travel restrictions include essential workers, and immediate family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents, as long as said family members are travelling to Canada for non-discretionary purposes.

Immediate family members have been defined as spouses, common-law partners, dependent children, grandchildren, parents, step-parents, guardians, and tutors.

Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has been provided guidelines on how to define non-discretionary travel.

CBSA is turning away immediate family from entering Canada if it deems the purpose of the trip to be non-essential.

During his remarks, Trudeau recognized the challenging nature of the restrictions for families and said he was hoping to seek a resolution.

However, he noted that easing travel restrictions is cause for concern among Canada’s provinces, who he has been consulting with on this matter.

In fact, Trudeau noted that this issue was brought up as recently as the evening of Thursday May 28 when he spoke with provincial premiers.

According to the Prime Minister, some premiers expressed openness to easing travel rules for families on grounds of compassion, while other premiers felt that doing so could make efforts to contain COVID-19 more challenging.

Trudeau concluded by saying that the federal and provincial governments will continue to explore this topic while keeping the safety and security of Canadians at the forefront of the ultimate decision that is taken.

Canada has had special immigration, visa, and travel measures in place since the middle of March.
