What is the Express Entry Program 2023?
The main source for skilled immigrants in Canada – Express entry program was introduced in 2015 to manage the profiles of the immigrants who have applied for Canada PR through Canada’s three major skilled economic immigration programs:
What is CRS ?
Implemented by Express Entry Program, CRS is a ranking system that ranks express profiles in the express entry pool. Higher ranked profiles are issued ITAs (Invitation to Apply) through frequently held express entry draws. ITA allows the express entry candidate to submit their application with the proper set of documents for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) within 60 days of getting the ITA.
Express Entry 2023 Vs Canada PNP
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is another immigration program for skilled immigrants to apply for Canada PR Visa. Every province in Canada (except Quebec) has these PNPs that allows them to nominate skilled immigrants for permanent resident status in respective province, who are able to meet the requirements of the local labour market.
When compared to the Federal government’s Express Entry program, PNPs have much lower requirements for immigrants to meet. Every PNP has different requirements that are based on the demand of labour market of the province, and if an immigrant is able to meet those requirements (Job-offer, Connection to the province, Occupation in-demand) they are given the provincial nomination certificate. There are some PNPs that even do not require the candidate to have a CRS score.
IRCC held express draws in approximately two weeks to issue ITAs to the higher-ranked profiles in the express pool. Each express draw has a minimum CRS score requirement (CRS score cut-off). Express profiles that are able to meet the required minimum CRS score are issued the ITA. In the latest express draw, the CRS score cut-off was set at 472 points. This means that the express entry profile in the express pool with the CRS score of 472 or more points was issued the ITAs.

CRS score History for 2019
Following is a table that shows the express draws that were held in the year 2019 and the corresponding CRS score cut-off.
|Draw Number||Date||Number of ITAs issued||Minimum CRS score required|
|127||Oct 16||500 (Federal Skilled Trades Only)||357 (Federal Skilled Trades Only)|
|116||May 25||500 (Federal Skilled Trades Only)||332 (Federal Skilled Trades Only)|
Next Express Draw Prediction – The CRS score cut-off is mainly affected by two factors:
- Size of Draw
