Canada issued 3,600 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence to Express Entry candidates in November 27 draw (WWICS: 28201911Ga1154)

Express Entry Draw #131:   27-November-2019

In the latest Express Entry draw held on November 27, the Government of Canada issued 3,600 invitations to apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 471.

In the previous invitation round, which was held on November 13, the CRS score cut-off threshold was 472 points.

Designed to project a candidate’s likelihood of being economically successful in Canada, the Comprehensive Ranking System is a score out of 1,200 and is used to rank federal economic applicants against one another.

The CRS score cut-off increased in October following a gap in all-program draws. In the October 30th invitation round, the CRS cut-off threshold hit a record high for the last year at 475 points.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied a tie break rule in the November 27 draw; and the time stamp used was November 11, 2019, at 6:29:10 UTC. This means that all candidates with a minimum CRS scores of 471 and above, who submitted their profile in the Express Entry pool before this date and time received an ITA.

With the 3600 invites sent in November 27 draw; IRCC has now issued a total of 78,900 invitations to apply to Express Entry candidates so far in 2019.

As of November 23, there were a total of 133,848 candidates in the Express Entry pool. A majority of these candidates (26,644) have CRS scores between 301 to 350.

The candidates, who received invitations in the November 27th draw, now have 60 days to submit their complete application for Canadian permanent residence to IRCC.
