Express Entry Next Draw Prediction 2019

The result of Express Entry Draw always remains a reason for huge curiosity and excitement among the applicants. Every year tens of thousands of skilled professionals from all over the world register on Canada Express entry immigration system to submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) for the Canadian Permanent Residency.

The IRCC allocate a point score to each applicant, which is also known as Comprehensive ranking system (CRS) of the applicant. This CRS score is drawn from the six profile factors for an applicant, i.e.

  • Age
  • Education
  • Work Experience
  • Language Skills
  • Adaptability
  • Arranged Employment

When you reach in Express Entry pool stage of federal EE System, the cumulative of the points obtained based on above factors (i.e. your CRS score) must be close enough to the ongoing CRS score requirement from IRCC. The IRCC launch a draw every fortnight and announce the cut off marks or qualifying marks for each draw. The applicants who match or exceed the required CRS score, receive the invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian PR from IRCC.


How to get an Invitation to apply with low CRS score?

With a low CRS score of below 400, it becomes a bit difficult to get ITA for PR visa. But, there are two ways via which you can still obtain some additional points and get your hands on the much-awaited Canada PR visa. Below are the two factors mentioned for your reference?

A Valid Canadian Job Offer

Since 2016, a Canadian job offer has been awarded an additional 200 points, only if it is falling under National Occupation Category or NOC 00, which includes:

    • 0011 Legislators
    • 0012 Senior government managers and officials
    • 0013 Senior managers - financial, communications and other business services
    • 0014 Senior managers - health, education, social and community services and membership organizations
    • 0015 Senior managers - trade, broadcasting, and other services note elsewhere classified
    • 0016 Senior managers - construction, transportation, production, and utilities

Provincial Nomination

If a candidate gets a nomination from any province of Canada, then he/she will get an additional 600 points.

So, if you get any of the above-stated things, then your Invitation to Apply is almost confirmed.

What was the Express Entry Draw Trend in 2018?

In 2018, the CRS score requirement from IRCC hovered around 440-450 mark. It remained around this mark most of the time in the year. It’s only in the last draw of the year, i.e. December 19, 2018 draw, qualifying marks dropped below 440 marks and announced as 439 CRS points.

Predictions for Next Express Entry Draw 2019

Making predictions express entry draws in 2019 is not easy by any means. If you look at the express entry draws this year so far, you will find that the CRS score requirement or cut off the trend by IRCC has remained volatile and not stable.

Express Entry cut off marks in 2019

However, considering the high annual immigration target of Express Entry for the year 2019 and the significant number of candidates in EE pool, with relatively low CRS score, we may expect some reduction in the CRS score requirement from IRCC in the forthcoming EE draws. This year, IRCC will invite as many as 81,400 candidates through an express entry system.


What will be the Cut off Marks in the next Express Entry Draw?

If IRCC decides to maintain this in the forthcoming draws of 2019, the qualifying marks are likely to remain around 439-450 mark. However, if you are an applicant of the Canadian PR via express Entry, it would be wise if you don’t just depend on the draw results and find out the alternate ways to obtain permanent residency in Canada, i.e. by increasing your CRS score or by applying in the provincial nominee programs, etc. Provincial Nominee Programs accept and nominate the applicants even with the low point score.

How the Express Entry System Works?

Upon issuance of an ITA, the candidate is supposed to submit completed application for PR under any of the programs within 60 days time. If they fail to do so, then their ITAs will become invalid.
