In the latest Express Entry draw held on 16th October 2019, the Canadian Government has invited 500 candidates from the Federal Skilled Trades category. Surprisingly, the minimum cut off score in the latest draw was 357 points and is considered to be on the lower side. But, all those candidates who have scored 357 or above points are invited to apply for a PR visa of Canada.
Like every other Express Entry draw, a tie-break rule was used for this program-specific Express Entry draw as well. The IRCC, also known as Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has used the 4th March 2019 results as a tiebreaker, which was declared at 20:36:42 UTC. Well, this is quite obvious that all those candidates under the Federal Skilled Trades category who have submitted their EE profile pool before the said date and time and have scored 357 CRS points or above, will get their Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency of Canada.
Now, if we come back to the low score requirements, then it is evident that for most of the Express Entry-aligned PNP streams too come up with low score requirements in comparison to federal all-program draws. Similar is the case with today s cut-off score of 357 points, which was 81 points lower than the cutoff score of 438 points in the last Express Entry draw (all-program).
This Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) of Canada is a permanent residence pathway designed for all those foreign nationals who wish to immigrate to Canada and possess relevant skilled trade experience.

Please note, any FSTC candidate who wishes to settle down and work in the province of Quebec has to apply for a separate immigration program in Quebec. The province selects its own set of skilled workers via its unique program.
