The Canada EE draw held on April 25th has offered 3500 PR Invites with the CRS cut-off reaching a new low of 441. This Express entry draw continues the trend of large draws for the second consecutive draw. These invited candidates can now submit their Canada PR Application to the Canadian government.
The Canada EE draw CRS score threshold is 3 points lower than the draw held previously on 11 April. The minimum CRS score for this round was 444, as quoted by the CIC News. The latest draw is also the second successive round in which 3,500 ITAs for Canada PR have been offered by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. This also brings the total number of ITAs offered so far in this year by IRCC to 24, 500.
Larger Canada EE draws similar to the latest round and the one held 2 weeks ago can also have an impact of decreasing the threshold CRS scores as witnessed in the last 2 draws.
The rule of breaking a tie was employed by the IRCC even in the latest round. The time and date for this round were 10:25: 33 UTC and 8 December 2017. It implies that all candidates with scores above 441 in CRS received an ITA. Also, all those with 441 scores and who submitted their profiles prior to this time also received an ITA.
Let’s consider a hypothetical situation of a candidate who received an ITA in the latest round:
Sharanya is aged 29 years and has a Bachelor’s degree. She has been working as a Programme for 3 years. Her profile does not reflect having studied or worked in Canada. She also possesses proficiency in the English language at the advanced level. Her 441 CRS score would have been adequate to obtain an ITA in the latest Canada EE draw.
