IRCC begins 2018 with record low profile off score for a first draw of the year

Cut-off CRS score of 446 is 22 focuses lower than first Express Entry draw of 2017

Canada has welcomed 2,750 Express Entry possibilities to apply for permanent residence in Canada in a draw that occurred January 10, 2018. The cut-off Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for this draw was 446.

The present score of 446 is a similar cut-off CRS score as the past draw that occurred on December 20. It speaks to the most minimal CRS cut-off for a first draw of the year since the Express Entry framework became effective in January 2015.

Not exclusively did it post the most minimal slice off CRS scores to date, yet the 2017 saw 30 draws happen and a record aggregate of 86,023 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) issued. That number speaks to 56 for every penny of the 153,618 ITAs issued since Canada’s Express Entry framework happened in January 2015.

With IRCC’s higher ITA focuses for 2018, it’s normal that this will convert into bigger or more continuous draws from Express Entry pool in the coming year, or potentially even both. That could mean even lower cut-off CRS scores in the many months to come.
