Posted On: Thu, Dec 24 2020
2020 ends with a big bang, as the CRS cut-off drops to 468 in the latest express entry draw conducted on December 23, 2020. In the latest express entry draw, a total of 5,000 candidates were issued an invitation from the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) to apply for Canada’s permanent residence (Canada PR).
The CRS cut-off released today is one point less than the previous CRS cut-off released on December 9, 2020. The IRCC has brought the number of invitations to 107,350 as far as this year is concerned despite the corona outbreak. It is the fourth time that IRCC has issued 5,000 invitations to the aspiring candidates who are really interested in settling permanently in Canada. Since the month of September, IRCC has been issuing 5,000 invitations consecutively amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic.
The recent express entry draw is a positive indication that the Canadian Government is taking huge steps in the right direction to facilitate immigration for most of the programs and select the skilled workers to apply for Canada’s permanent residence.
Express Entry is Canada’s speedy pathway for the skilled workers that work as per the three economic immigration streams such as Federal skilled workers program, Federal skilled trades program and Canadian experience class. Now, the candidates with a CRS cut off of 468 or more can apply for Canada’s permanent residence without any fuss. In order to submit the PR application, the candidates have 60 days-times, which starts from the day an ITA is received from the IRCC.
A tie-breaking rule was applied in the latest express entry draw which reflects that the candidates who have a CRS score of 468 or more needed to have submitted their express entry profiles prior to June 4, 2020 at 13:39:44 in order to receive an Invitation to apply from the IRCC. The express entry candidates who received a provincial nomination from any province will be awarded with 600 additional points towards their CRS score.
