On 10th July 2019, IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) conducted its first Federal Express Entry draw of the month. In the process, 3,600 ITAs (invitations to apply) were issued to the permanent residence candidates.
The CRS (Comprehensive Ranking Score) score for this draw was 460, two points drop from the previous round score. Like always, the tie-break rule was implemented. And the preferred time and date for the July draw was 11th June 2019, at 12:27:18 UTC.
Largest Draw of the Year 2019 (So far)
Finally, a draw in which the total number of invitations has exceeded 3500 and the CRS cut-off has dropped as well. We can expect more positive changes to happen in the future draws.
As we have mentioned before, Canada started the year with a low cut-off range. But it increased on the February draws. Again, the CRS seemed to drop down by a point in each invitation rounds of April and May. We also saw a score of 470, which probably the highest increase in the current year (so far). But now the scores are again coming down, good news for you!
We hope the cut-off will drop down to 440- 50s in the coming months, most expectedly before the October election, considering the change in the ruling government may bring new rules and policy changes.
