Latest Express Entry Draw Held on Sep 4, 2019

In a draw held this Wednesday, total 3,600 invitations to apply (ITAs) have been issued by the government of Canada to Express Entry candidates. The minimum CRS score in the latest Express Entry draw was 463, which marks a rise of overall 6 points in comparison to the previous draw held on 20th August 2019.

Introspecting the Reasons Behind the Rise in the Minimum CRS Score Requirement

This variation in the minimum score requirement in 2019 is a result of the time gap between each draw. It has deviated on a number of cases from the usual draw pace of IRCC, where draws are announced in every two weeks.

The increased time gap between two draws results in piling up of higher-scoring applicants, which in turn results in a rise in the minimum CRS score requirement. Whereas, if there is a less time gap between two draws, then there would be lesser entries of new candidates, which in turn would help in lowering down the minimum score cap.

This was the scenario in a 20th August draw as well, which took place over eight days after the previous draw held on 12th August. This reduction in the time gap between 2 draws automatically resulted in a decrease by nine points, from 466 to 457. While today s draw came after 15 days since the last draw held on 20th August and resulted in a rise of total 6 points.


Latest Draw Brings in More Numbers

With this latest Express Entry draw held on 4th September, the total number of invitations issued to Express Entry candidates in 2019 has reached up to 59,800 ITAs.

About the Tie-Break Used in Latest Draw

In the latest draw held on September 4, the tie-break used was of 23rd August 2019, at 13:33:34 UTC. It clearly shows that all the candidates who have scored 463 or above and have entered their EE profile into the pool before the said time and date will receive an ITA.

Those candidates who have scored below the announced cut off, they can improve their overall CRS score via provincial nomination. With a provincial nomination, they get an additional 600 CRS points, which ensures them an invitation to apply for permanent residency of Canada.
