How Canada Express Entry Works?

Express Entry System- an Overview of the most popular and fast Canadian Immigration Program 2019-20

The Express Entry is an electronic system designed to allow the quality migrants in the country. launched in January, 2015, the Express Entry System at one end won many appreciations for being the most organized system of immigration, on the other end received few criticisms as well for having certain strict regulations that indeed funnelled the candidates so narrowly that resulted in the low migration in Canada, i.e. below the proposed target.

 How does it work?

The Express Entry System can be divided into a few basic steps:

  • The candidates interested in Canadian immigration and permanent residency, create an online profile on Express Entry system and submit an EOI (Expression of Interest).
  • The IRCC (Immigration Refugee Citizenship Canada) will review the each profile submitted in EE system and accordingly allocate the marks to the candidates based on the parameters, i.e. Education, Language proficiency, skills, work experience, etc.
  • Now the IRCC will launch the Express Entry draw, usually on fortnight basis and set the qualifying marks (CRS Score) for that draw.
  • The Candidates with points equal to or above the qualifying marks for a particular draw will be eligible to receive an ITA (invitation to apply) for the permanent residency visa in Canada.

Do I qualify for Canada Express Entry

Let’s take an overview as to how the Express Entry Draws resulted this year.

Review & Analysis of Express Entry Draws in 2019

This year, the first Express Entry Draw was launched on January 10, 2019 in which staggering 3,900 invitations were issued by the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) with CRS score requirement 449 points. Although, the invitations to apply remained high throughout, the year, the qualifying marks shown a little flexibility. In last EE draw, the invites remained to 3,300 while CRS score requirement increased to 457 points.

  • The CRS Score requirement reduced to lowest of past one year: The CRS score requirement from IRCC in 2019 touched the lowest mark (i.e. 438 points) of past one and half year. It was steady in the all three draws of January 2019, however, in February draw of express entry the cut off marks increased considerably to 457 CRS points.
  • Significant Number of Invitations till date: Well, the number of Invitation issued by Federal Express Entry system for Canadian permanent residency have been quite high in all EE draws this date.

What is lowest CRS score prediction in 2019?

Well, considering the above trend of EE draws this year, and high annual immigration target of Express entry in 2019, i.e. 81,400,the significant drop is expected in the CRS score requirement, however, it won’t be a drastic one for sure. Looking at the huge number of candidates in Express Entry pool with CRS score 431-440, the cut off or qualifying marks are expected to come down in the future express entry draws. It will most likely remain around the above mentioned CRS range only, as most of pool candidates has the similar CRS point score at present.

However, there are two scenarios of increasing ofthe cut offmarks, i.e. more candidates with high CRS score register in EE system in months to come, or applicants with low CRS score get the provincial nomination on frequent basis draw over draw, which will increase their CRS score and force the IRCC to raise the cut off in upcoming EE draws.

Well, in that case, best thing is to apply in PNP and enhance your points score in Federal EE system. A nomination from a Canadian province can increase your CRS score by 600 CRS points. Hence, you may coordinate with a trusted immigration and visa expert to apply in the most appropriate PNP and increase you CRS score and subsequently, get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian PR visas from IRCC.
