Express Entry is the most popular pathway to apply and obtain Canadian permanent residence visa. Since, it’s a point based immigration program, the point you score in the EE system decides whether you will get the invitation to apply for the PR visa from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada or not.
This is the reason that aspirants of permanent residency keep an eye on the Canada express entry next draw prediction. The applicants also keep track of the cut off trend or the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score requirement from IRCC in each draw.
So, what does the trend say for the year 2020? How low one can expect the CRS to fall? We will try to find the answer of these entire questions in this article.
This is one of the most common and prominent questions asked by the applicants of Canadian PR registered in Express Entry system. However, express entry next draw prediction is not straightforward by any means.
Only IRCC knows what it has in its bank and it only becomes known, once the draw is open. In the first half of the year 2020, the CRS score requirement has been exceedingly volatile.
The above zigzag trend clearly indicate the volatility of the cut off marks for receiving the ITA (Invitation to Apply). This happened as most draws held since March 2020 were for the PEP and CEC category candidates, in view of Covid-19 pandemic.
The last FSW category draw held on 4th March 2020, wherein the CRS score requirement was 472 points. It was around this mark in the first quarter of the year.
In the 25th June-Express Entry draw for CEC (Canadian Experience Class), the CRS score requirement dropped to the record low 431 points. Hence, the express entry applicants are expecting this drop in the cut off to reflect in the next express entry draw for regular FSW category as well.
However, the expecting the reduction of the cut off from 470 points mark to 431 points will be exaggeration. However, one can expect a significant drop in the qualifying marks, considering the fact that most candidates with CEC and provincial nominee class have already received ITA.
In addition, the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) needs to meet its annual immigration target for 2020, which is 91,800 for Federal High Skilled Category (FSW+FST+CEC). The Express entry is the half way mark right now with nearly 46,000 invites issued this year for the Federal High skilled category.
There are still more than 45,000 invites yet to be issued this year, hence, considering this, we may see the fall in the cut off marks in the upcoming EE draws for the regular FSW category.
With easing out containment measures in Canada as well as across the world, it is the best time to apply for Canadian permanent residency.
If you apply for the Canada PR now, you can avoid possible delay in processing of the application, when number Canada PR applications will increase drastically upon lifting of the global travel restrictions.
In case your CRS score is low in Express Entry, you can also choose to apply in a Provincial Nominee Program and increase your CRS point score by 600 CRS points.

"First of all I would like to thank Tabby K who initially guided me in detail through the Australian PR process, even though I had already conveyed that I will not be signing up for any Professional Services and will be filing it on my own. Still she detailed out every step and answered all my queries then and there itself. Secondly and most importantly a big thanks to our case officer Kirti Chauhan whose impeccable professionalism and patience in hearing and responding to our thousand queries helped us achieving the Visa. We used to be extra cautious and pessimistic with every step, but she always kept us motivated and was a great support during the whole process. I will definitely recommend Visas Avenue to all Visa aspirants."
