- Express Entry draw figures for the October 30 draw are below.
Today’s draw brings the total number of invitations to apply (ITAs) to 71,700 issued so far this year through Canada’s Express Entry system.
In the October 30, 2019 Express Entry draw for immigration to Canada, 3,900 candidates will be issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Unlike the previous draw, this draw is open to candidates in all Express Entry-aligned programs. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off threshold was 475 points.
In the previous all-program draw, which occurred on October 2, the CRS score cut-off threshold was 464 points. However, a draw also occurred on October 16 which was limited to candidates in the Federal Skilled Trades program and issued only 500 invitations.
Why is the CRS score cut-off so high?
In the October 30 draw the CRS score cut-off has increased to 475.This is the highest cut-off in nearly three years, since a draw in December, 2016, when the cut-off was also 475.Express Entry candidates might be wondering why the CRS score cut-off has increased so substantially.
The main reason for the increase is that the most recent draw was restricted exclusively to Federal Skilled Trades candidates and issued only 500 invitations. This means that four weeks have passed between the most recent all-program draw and the all-program draw that took place on October 30.
With a longer period of time passing between draws, more candidates have the opportunity to enter the Express Entry pool and to increase their CRS scores. This results in a higher number of competitive profiles, therefore driving the CRS score cut-off upward.

When is the next draw?
Will the CRS score cut-off decrease in future draws?
Typically, the CRS score cut-off spikes immediately following a gap between all-program draws, so it is likely that cut-off will decrease in future draws. However, there are a range of factors that may influence the CRS cut-off score, including:
- The number of candidates invited;
- The frequency of draws;
- The number of new candidates entering the pool; and
- Changes in the CRS scores of existing candidates, whose scores may increase or decrease depending on their circumstances.
As of October 25, there were a total of 131,399 candidates in the Express Entry pool. The graph below shows their distribution according to their CRS score at that time.
What’s an Invitation to Apply (ITA)?
How to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA)?
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) ranks immigration in the Express Entry pool following some profile criteria:
- Human capital factors such as age, level of education, language ability in French and English,
- Spouse or common-law partner human capital factors, if applicable,
- Skill transferability factors, such as foreign work experience and language ability, and
- Additional factors, such as a provincial nomination, a valid job offer, studies in Canada, French language abilities, having a sibling as a permanent resident in Canada or Canadian citizen.
The maximum score in the Comprehensive Ranking System is of 1,200 points, but it’s impossible and there’s no need to get a CRS score of 1,200 points. However, if your CRS score is below the cutoff score, we strongly advise to apply with us Provincial Nominee Program.
