134th Express Entry Draw Conducted In Canada With 3,400 PR Invitations

Canadian Express Entry held the first draw for the year 2020 on January 8th and issued 3,400 invitations to the aspirants to look for the Canadian permanent residence. The smallest score in CRS obligatory to obtain the invitation in this draw was 473. Through the Express Entry system which was introduced in 2015, Canada primarily attracts many categories of top-skilled foreign workers.  

Management Of The Pool

Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three skilled immigration programs in the country as mentioned below:

  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Federal Skilled Worker Class,
  • Federal Skilled Trades Class

The candidates having the required Eligibility get a Comprehensive Ranking score in Express Entry based on education, work experience, age, and language proficiency in French/English. Also, the job offer is not an eligibility norm in the system, but there are further CRS points for candidates who acquire it.

In addition, the specific number of candidates having a top-score, successfully get the invitation and can apply for permanent residence in the pool draws held regularly once in two weeks.

The Government has set the processing standard of six months for all PR applications filed in the Express Entry system.

Promising Admissions Targets In 2020

As the last point, the admissions targets in Canada set for 2020 are 85,800 as well as for 2021 stand at 88,800 for all programs managed through the Express Entry.

The target for its Provincial Programs, some of which are a part of Express Entry is set at 67,800 for the present year and 71,300 for 2021. Canada has nine provinces and two territories that manage enhanced PNP streams linked with Express Entry. The CRS score requirement, in these streams, is low or nil, allowing these provinces and territories in choosing Express Entry candidates and inviting them to avail the provincial nomination for permanent residence.

Furthermore, Express Entry Candidates obtaining the provincial nomination also get further 600 points in the CRS score and are assured to get an ITA.

This draw was superior, to the previous round of December 19 which had issued 3,200 Invitations. The least CRS score touched 473, but earlier it was 469.

Associated Facts

The reason for this increase in score today is the lapsing of 20 days between two rounds. Additionally, IRCC applied the tie-break mechanism and the time and date was Dec 27th, 2019, 13:35:09 UTC. Candidates who had a score of 473 and had submitted their profile prior to this specific date or time were successful in receiving the ITA.
