What will be the minimum qualifying marks to get ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian PR from IRCC in the year 2020? This is the question being asked big time by most of the express entry candidates seeking permanent residency in Canada in 2020. Will the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) consider dropping the minimum CRS requirement in 2020 or it will keep it the same way as it has been all through last year? Let’s find out.
An applicant can apply Canada PR through Express Entry system as well as through the Provincial Nominee Programs and QSWP. For Federal Express Entry System, Canada basically has two point based criterion for selecting the suitable skilled workers through express entry system. The first criteria is checking the eligibility of an applicant for Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP).
The FSWP is the one of the three main categories of Federal Express Entry System along with FSTP (Federal Skilled Trade Program) and CEC (Canadian Experience Class). As an applicant you need to score minimum 67 points out of 100 based on age, education, work experience, language skills, etc. to become eligible to apply under Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) of Express Entry. There is no change in FSW point’s criteria of 67 points in 2020.
After crossing the FSWP threshold, once you have entered the Express Entry pool, you will have to compete with the fellow applicants to receive ITA (Invitation to Apply) from Express Entry System. The IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) every fortnight launch a draw and announce the cut off marks or CRS score requirement for that particular draw.
Let’s take a look at CRS score requirement from IRCC in the last one year:
Although, the minimum qualifying marks last year went down to 438 points in first quarter itself, however, this year, IRCC has kept the qualifying marks or CRS Score requirement around 470 markin first quarter of the year. Check here your eligibility
In the last draw launched on 19th December 2018, IRCC reduced the cut off marks to 439 CRS points, which is the lowest of the year. So, you can understand the level IRCC maintained all through last year.
As already discussed to get invitation to apply for Canadian PR, your immigration points based on age, education, work experience, and language skills, etc. need to be good enough. Now, considering the high annual immigration target of Canada as well as express entry system, i.e. 3,41,000 and 85,800 respectively, we may see some reduction in the minimum CRS score requirement from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) in the New Year.
However, still it’s very tough to predict anything as far as Express Entry Draw results are concerned. Safe score can only be considered which is closest to the last draw cut off and that too if any drastic hike doesn’t take place in the same from IRCC.
If you want to increase your CRS score up to 600 points, you must apply in a Provincial Nominee Program and get the provincial nomination. The PNPs accept the applicants even with low point score and nominate them for Canadian permanent residency. If you apply and get selected in Express Entry aligned stream of any PNP, you become eligible to get extra 600 points in your express entry account.
In fact, few PNPs, such as Alberta PNP invite the applicants with CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score as low as just 300 points. A few popular Provincial programs to apply are as follows:

Visas Avenue proven to be good consultant when it's regarding processing my Canadian pr. To me they were professional and I’m completely satisfied with the accountability they have shown in my case and follow ups they did for me. Rajeshwari.V is my Case Manager for Canada and she did an excellent job in explaining me the whole process/ documents needed and how/where to get them. Finally i got my pr exactly on/before the expected processing time. I knew the whole process and yet I took help of visas avenue as I wanted professionals to fail-proof my application and make sure it cause no extra unnecessary delays and that’s exactly what I got for them.

Mr. Lenin Reddy
Highly recommend them. This is not my first experience with them, but in fact have got my brother s, bhabhi s and two friend s applications already processed through them. The fees is quite reasonable and transparent and even for a straightforward case, I would recommend going with VA. Special shout out to Vaibhav and Samiksha for standing with me throughout the process. Thanks a ton, guys!""The best thing about Visa Avenues is that when they take up your application, they really get invested in the process. I started off with a 189/190 application but when the application conditions changed, VA advised me to go for 489. This is significant as they normally dont lodge 489 applications, but did it on my behalf as I was already a client. This willingness to go beyond what is strictly required is what I appreciate the most. Further, they are very diligent in going through the requirements and in dotting every i and ticking every t.
"Visa Avenues is a superb professional services available for immigration related consulting. They are super prompt, reliable, thorough and provide alternatives if required. My experience is based on working with Samiksha Lal, Vaibhav Saini and Shivangi Arora."
