Canada issues 3,600 invitations to apply for permanent residence in new Express Entry draw
Invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence have been issued to 3,600 Express Entry candidates in a new draw held by the Government of Canada on September 4.
The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score in today’s invitation round was 463, an increase of six points over the previous draw on August 20.
The Express Entry system is Canada’s principal source of skilled foreign workers. It manages the profiles of candidates for Canada’s three Federal High Skilled economic class immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.
Eligible candidates are entered into the Express Entry pool and are ranked based on a CRS score that considers factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.
