November 27, 2019 – In the new draw held on November 27th, the immigration minister of Canada has issued 3,600 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
In the new draw, the Minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) required is 471 which is one point less from the last express entry draw held on November 13.
The candidates who fall under the eligibility criteria are allotted a score under CRS which is based on factors such as age, education, proficiency in English or French and skilled work experience.
A job offer is not mandatory to fall under the eligibility criteria for an Express Entry invitation to apply (ITA). However, additional points are allotted if candidates hold any opportunity offer.
The Express Entry is Canada’s major source of skilled foreign labour. It manages a pool of candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trade Class, and Canadian Experience class which are the immigration program.
In the draw held, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have applied a tie-break time and date of November 11, 2019, at 6:29 UTC. This means that the applicant with a score of 471 who has submitted their profile before this date and time has received an invitation to apply (ITA).
