Announcement of Latest Cut off Brings In A Swarm Of 3,600 Candidates Issued With An ITA With Cut Off Of 457 Or Above As On 20th August 2019

In a span of 8 days the latest released cut off of 457 as on 20th August 2019 brings in a horde of 3,600 skilled professionals receiving an ITA to apply for Canada PR. Since 1st May 2019 this has been the lowest cut off announced by IRCC, 10 points drop in one go raises the expectations and hopes of all the aspiring applicants waiting to start their process or else in the initial stage of Canada PR process. This is the first time since 8th December 2015 that a decreased draw has been released on Tuesday.

Express Entry System is Canada’s major resource through which the country fills in the labour market gaps, therefore, all suitable candidates enter the Express Entry Pool where they are issued scores towards their Comprehensive Ranking System scores based on six major factors that are Age, Education, Work Experience, Language proficiency, Arranged Employment and relatives in Canada. The candidate who scores the maximum in these six criteria’s are issued with an ITA ensuring 90%guarantee of visa approval. To be able to enter the Express Entry pool, candidates should meet the eligibility requirements of any of the three economic-class immigration categories —the Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.

IRCC applied a tie break rule in the August 20 draw; candidates had to have proposed their profiles before March 24, 2019, at 15:32:42 UTC. 3,600 invitations have been issued in the latest draw calculating the total no. of invitations in 2019 to 56,200. “With Canada’s high immigration targets for 2019 and 2020, it is invigorating to observe Express Entry draw happening so soon after another,” said David Cohen, senior partner with the Campbell, Cohen Canadian immigration law firm in Montreal. “Larger or more frequent draws can have the effect of lowering the CRS score cut off.”
