The minimum CRS score has been changed to 510 on the IRCC website
Although IRCC initially announced a minimum CRS score of 511 for the September 14 draw, it was changed to 510 shortly thereafter.
On September 14, Canada invited Express Entry candidates with a minimum score of 510 on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), rather than the 511 originally released.
The difference means that people with at least 510 points have received their Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in Canada. While this is still a relatively high score compared to other draws in the program, it is the lowest score since these types of drawings resumed on July 6.
Canadian Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC) updated their Ministerial Guidelines around 3pm. Last Wednesday Eastern Time.
At the time, the page said that the minimum threshold for CRS was 511, but some online said that he got an ITA with a score of 510.
As this is a magnet for all programs, applicants with the highest scores from all Express Entry-operated programs were given the opportunity to obtain an ITA. Programs run by Express Entry include the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
The IRCC previously suspended all Express Entry draws for all programs based on December 2020. During this time, I was invited to support only CEC or Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) qualified candidates. In September 2021, CEC mining was also suspended.
The CRS score threshold has been in the 500 range since IRCC resumed drawing for all programs on July 6. As the CRS threshold decreased, the lottery volume increased.
So far this year, Canada has welcomed about 40,785 immigrants through express entry. IRCC expects to welcome approximately 55,900 express entry immigrants under its 2022-2024 Immigration Level Plan.
