Analysis of 19th February Express Entry draw

In the draw opened on 19th of this month, IRCC dropped the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score requirement marginally by just 2 points. However, even with this minor deduction, the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) was able to issue massive 4,500 invitations to apply for Canadian PR, making it the largest express entry draw ever. Incidentally, it is the lowest CRS Score requirement as well this year, announced by the Canadian immigration department in the current draw of federal EE system.

The increasing number of invites and falling trend of cut off marks in last few draws of EE system is a good sign for the applicants.

If you didn't get the ITA since long, you can enhance your CRS score by applying in the right PNP (Provincial nominee program). Though a PNP, you can obtain provincial nomination and subsequently, add 600 points to your express entry CRS score.

To choose and apply in right PNP, you may coordinate with a trusted Canadian immigration advisor and consultant.
