Express Entry: First all-program draw since start of COVID-19

A return to draws for Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) candidates

July 8, 2020

Latest CRS Cutoff Score

Express Entry Latest Draw 155:

Date of Draw: JULY 8, 2020

Total Invitations Issued: 3900

Lowest Qualifying Score: 478

Next express entry draw is expected to occur on July 22nd, 2020.

The 155th draw for Express Entry permanent residence candidates happened on July 8, 2020, and was an all-program draw.

It has resulted in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points requirement for receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) to increase as compared to the previous all-program draw on March 4, 2020.

The CRS score of the lowest-ranked invited candidate was 478, with 3,900 ITAs issued in total.

As with the previous draws, a tie-break rule was used. As a bunch of candidates have the same 478 score, only those who have created their profile before February 11, 2020 at 03:17:13 UTC will get an ITA.

Canada is inviting thousands of immigrants to apply for Permanent Residency every month.

Since COVID-19 became a public health crisis in Canada, IRCC had been restricting draws to candidates from either Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) or Canadian Experience Class (CEC). However, on July 8, Express Entry returned to all-program draws for the first time in more than four months.

As expected, the CRS score cut-off was higher than before the restricted draws, at 478 points. Although, this is only a few points higher than it was prior to COVID-19, so FSW candidates still in the pool have reasons to be cautiously optimistic that the cut-off score may come down over upcoming draws.

Is Canada still issuing Express Entry invitations despite COVID-19?

Canada is still issuing Express Entry invitations. Since March, most Express Entry draws were restricted to candidates in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or those with provincial nominations. However, in July, Express Entry resumed all-program draws.

Is Canada still processing Express Entry applications during COVID-19?

Yes. Canada is still processing immigration applications for Express Entry.
