5 point drop in the new Express Entry CRS score

Canada’s express entry draw recently invited 3350 individuals to apply for permanent residence. While the draw was conducted on June 12, 2019, a cut-off score of 465 was observed. This score was a bit less than the score, which was 470. 

The express entry system of the country helps in managing a list of applicants for various classes. These classes include the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and the Federal Skilled Worker Class. Way ahead, these classes are known to be the ones for the immigration programs. 

Candidates who qualify for Canada’s express entry draw are issued a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. Once the applicant gets the score, he or she can check out the rank. 

The score that’s set for each applicant is based on the education, work experience and the age. English or French language proficiency is also one of the factors that the officials consider. 

Moreover, the candidates who have achieved the highest rank are invited to apply for ITAs. The invitation is granted through draws conducted every two weeks. 

Ways beyond, the Canadian government aims at processing the applications within six months for the Canada’s express entry draw . 

This year, IRCC has issued 38, 450 Invitation to Apply (ITAs). This figure was 6250 more than it was observed in the year 2018. But, now, the total numbers of invitations were found out to be 89,800.

As the year passes by, Canada would aim at taking more individuals for the programs. The admission target may increase in 2020 as the Express Entry System manages the programs. 

As per the statistics, the admission target was more or less consistent from 2017 to 2018. But, after 2018, the target rose from 74,900 to 81,400. 

The time passed away between Canada’s express entry draws something that influences the CRS score. 

While the cut-off score at the end of May was 470, many candidates could apply to the programs. But, with just a lapse of two weeks, only a few candidates were a part of the list. The situation seemed to change when five points reduced the cut-off score.

 If such a kind of trend is observed, then the CSR cut-off is likely to decrease in the coming weeks. This is what David Cohen, the Senior Partner of Campbell, perceived when IRCC became active. 

As per an update, the scenario was quite different due to the tie break. Those with a score equal to 465 or more could enter the profile in the pool. However, the ITAs were issued only for those who had entered the pool before June 6, 2019, and 13:51:59 UTC. 

For the Express Entry Programs, the government always selects skilled workers. These workers should be capable of contributing to the economy.

 When the work experience is considered, the person should have worked in one of the NOC job groups.

For the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the person should have worked with skill Type 0, A or B. Officials would not consider unpaid internships or voluntary work. 

Also, the person should have seven as the minimum score for language proficiency tests. The test results are valid only two years after they have been announced. 

For the Federal Skilled Trades Program, the person is eligible only if he has at least two years of work experience

The worker must also have worked as per the profiles under Group 72, 73, 82, 92, 632 or 633. He may not be well educated, but to increase the rank he may have to show a few documents. 

The minimum score for language proficiency should either be 5 or more. Most importantly, the applications must be based on the current version of the NOC.

To apply for the Canadian Experience Class, the person should have at least one year of work experience. This work experience should be as per the jobs under skill level 0, A or B.

A person need not be educated to apply for the Canadian Experience Class. But, to improve the rank, the person should have completed his studies in Canada. 

In case the person is on a part-time job, then the total number of hours should be 1560 hours. 

For all the above programs, the person should have got a high school certificate. He or she may also qualify if he has received a post-secondary school certificate. 

An Educational Credential Assessment Report would be required for studies outside Canada. The certificates, in this case, should be equivalent to the ones of secondary or post-secondary school.

An individual needs to present a proof of funds for the Federal Skilled Trades Program. He may also have to show this document when he is applying for the Federal Skilled Workers Program. 

The proof of funds shows that you are capable of settling in Canada with your family. You should either be allowed to work legally or have a job offer from a Canadian employer. 

Finally, you need to check whether you are allowed to enter Canada. In case you have a reason to come to the country, then you must have a temporary residence permit. 

If you have committed a crime, then it might be tough to enter the country. In that case, you may try to convince the officer according to the legal terms. 

An online form would help to check the eligibility for the Express Entry pool. You have to fill personal details, language skills and enter more about your work experience.

 You also have to confirm if you have already submitted an Express Entry Profile earlier. Way ahead, you need to click ‘Yes’ if you have a job offer from an employer in Canada. The educational background would be considered to increase the possibilities. 

Before you submit the online assessment form, you can think about receiving current updates. You can always stay notified with the news as you get the newsletters through emails.
