New Express Entry draw invites 3,600 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence
A new Express Entry draw took place Monday, August 12, in which a total of 3,600 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence were issued to candidates with scores of 466 and above.
The cut-off score of 466 in today’s draw is seven points above the minimum score of 459 in the previous invitation round on July 24.
The Express Entry system is Canada’s main source of skilled foreign workers. Candidates in the Express Entry pool are issued a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score based on their age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.
A set number of the highest-ranked candidates are issued invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence (ITAs) through regular draws from the pool.
