New Express Entry Draw Invites Trades Candidates With Scores as Low as 357
The Government of Canada invited 500 Federal Skilled Trades Class candidates with Comprehensive Ranking Scores as low as 357 to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a new Express Entry draw held October 16.
The program-specific draw was the second of 2019 to target candidates in the Federal Skilled Trades Class, which is open to foreign nationals with a certificate of qualification that proves they are qualified to work in an eligible skilled trade in Canada OR have an eligible offer of employment in Canada, among other criteria.
The Federal Skilled Trades Class is one of three Federal High Skilled immigration programs managed by the Express Entry system. The other two are the Federal Skilled Worker Class and the Canadian Experience Class.
The vast majority of Express Entry draws involve candidates from all three classes and today’s draw was one of the rare exceptions to this rule.
