Canada has held the 7th Federal Skilled Trades Program Draw since the introduction of the Express Entry Program in January 2015. In the latest Express Entry Draw held on August 6, 2020, a total of 250 invitations were issued to the candidates who applied for Federal Skilled Trades Program under the Canada Express Entry Program.
A total of 250 Federal Skilled Trades Program candidates received an ITA (Invitation to apply) to apply for the Canada’s Permanent Residence. The CRS score of the lowest ranked candidates who was invited under the FSTP is 415 which means the candidate needs to score 415 or more than that in order to receive an ITA from the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
On August 5, 2020, the IRCC held an all-program Express Entry Draw under which 3900 invitations were issued to the candidates who were having the CRS score of at least 476.
If you have a look at the draws conducted on both the days, a total of 4150 candidates were issued invitations. It is no surprise that Canada is still open to issuing invitations despite the wreaking havoc created by the corona virus. As far as 2020 is concerned, a total of 61,850 ITA’s were issued by the IRCC.
A tie-breaking rule was applied as per this draw which says that the candidates who applied under the FSTP program prior to June 2, 2020 at 09:35:31 UTC received the ITA’s in the latest Express Entry Draw.
