The last express entry draw launched by the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) on October 15, 2019 was for the Federal Skilled Trades (FST) Category and not for the regular FSW (Federal Skilled Trades) category. Now, the launch of FST draw has delayed the regular FSW draw, which was scheduled around the same date (as per the trend).

So, what will be the impact of this delay on the regular Express Entry draw timing and CRS score requirement as well from IRCC. Let's find out.

Predictions about the Next Express Entry Draw

The first curiosity among the applicants as well as the expert is about the timing of the next draw. Some of the experts are predicting one more express entry draw in the month of October, while others have different opinion about the same.

Well, considering the high immigration target of Express Entry for this year, and only one regular draw held in October month so far, we may expect one more draw this month from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

What will be the cut off in next Express entry draw?

The cut off or CRS score requirement reduced drastically in the last EE draw, which was 357 points. However, this fall in the qualifying marks has nothing to do with the CRS score requirement of Federal Skilled Worker category.

In the last regular draw of Federal Express Entry system, the CRS score requirement was 464 points.Now, since no regular draw happened for quite some time (i.e. some 21 days), the number of candidates (with high CRS points) in the express entry system will surely increase. As a result, we may not see any noticeable fall in the cut off in the next draw, in fact, there won't be a surprise if it raises on the contrary.

What are the options to get Canada PR with low CRS score?

If your CRS score is not high enough to obtain Express entry invitation, it is advised to apply in a PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) to obtain provincial nomination, which in turn will make you eligible to get 600 extra CRS points. Needless to mention that these points will make certain you get Invitation to Apply for Canada PR from IRCC.
