EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW (PNP) #149: May 27, 2020

Canada issued a total of 385 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence to Express Entry candidates in the latest invitation round held on May 27.

Express Entry candidates, who had previously obtained a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) received invites to apply for permanent residence in this draw.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement for this draw was 757.

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) used its tie-break rule in this draw. All candidates with a CRS score of at least 757, who submitted their profile before April 27, 2020 at 10:19:01 UTC, received an ITA in this invitation round.

Express Entry system is Canada’s main source of skilled foreign workers. It manages immigration applications for three Federal High Skilled economic class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades (FST), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

In order to be considered for these programs, a candidate needs to first submit an Express Entry profile.

 All eligible candidates are entered into the Express Entry pool and are ranked against one another based on a CRS score, which assigns each candidate a score out of 1200 points on the basis of factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.

The highest-ranked candidates from the pool received invites to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws.

IRCC has been regularly holding PNP and CEC specific Express Entry rounds since special coronavirus measures went into place on March 18. This was the sixth PNP-specific draw from the federal Express Entry system since March 18.

Canada has now invited a total of 38,585 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence so far in 2020!
