In the last Express Entry draw that took place on May 1, 2019, 3,350 candidates were invited to submit their applications for permanent residence in Canada.

The Comprehensive Ranking System cut-off score this time was 450 point, which is only slightly lower than the previous draw on April 17, 2019. Since the beginning of 2019, the score has been slowly dropping from 457 to 450.

So far in 2019, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has issued a total of 31,250 Invitations to Apply for permanent residence in Canada. The month of May has not been very high on draws. So far, we have only had this single draw on May 1, 2019 (as of May 27, 2019).

Work on your language tests, educational credential assessments, experience and job offers to up your score. Don’t forget to do the same for spouse, as it will ramp up your numbers too. Look into Provincial Nominee Programs to receive additional 600 points towards your score.

About Express Entry

Express Entry is an incredibly fast and efficient system of managing applications for Canadian permanent residence put in place by the Canadian Government in 2015. It is used to manage three programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class, as well as some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Under the terms of Express Entry, applicants provide information about their skills, education, language ability, work experience and some details online through a very user-friendly interface.

Once you complete your Express Entry profile, the system automatically assesses your rank in the Express Entry pool, using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System, and tells you how many points you have.

The points are awarded for skills, education, language ability, work experience and other factors. Additional points can be awarded for Canadian degrees, diplomas and certificates, a valid job offer and a nomination from a province or a territory. You immediately see how many points you have.
