Ever since the Express Entry was launched, the 13th draw has witnessed the lowest Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut off score of 451 points. Held on July 17, the draw saw issuance of 1,581 invitations to apply (ITA) to the applicants who had filed their case under the Express Entry Pool.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada has conducted 13 draws till date and 15,000 ITAs have been issued so far. As the cut off score has been dropping considerably since the last two to three draws and this has come as a breather for the applicants. Another major observation of the 13th draw is that it has seen issuance of ITAs to applicants who have no job offer or provincial nomination as well. The applicants who have scored less points for age education and language fluency have also been invited.
So the applicants who have not recieved an ITA till now can be hopeful of being considered even if they do not fulfill the eligibility criteria for qualifying. Citing the short time gap between the 12th and 13th draw, the 14th draw is also expected to be done in the next few days. Express Entry is an excellent prospect for reaching Canada for all the skilled workers and professionals.
