Canada held the Express Entry selection with a record low score
However, the draws have become much less frequent than before.
The minimum passing score on the Comprehensive Ranking System was 685, 59 points lower than it was in the previous selection, which took place on October 27. The points requirement may seem high, but that's because all the invited entrants had previously received provincial nominations. Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination are automatically awarded 600 points on top of their original score for age, education, language skills and other factors.
The passing score in the previous selection was the second lowest in 2021 for this category of candidates. Excluding the provincial nomination, applicants scored from 85 points in the Express Entry system.
Express Entry is Canada's system for selecting immigrants through three federal economic class programs:
- Highly skilled professionals;
- specialists in the working professions;
- specialists with experience in Canada.
Under a new immigration plan for 2021-2023, Canada aims to admit about 110,000 immigrants annually through Express Entry. For 2021, more than 112,000 invitations have already been issued.
Express Entry selections have become much rarer since Canada met its annual target for the number of invitations through the system. Already, several consecutive selections have been held only for provincial program participants, although previously they were also held for professionals with Canadian experience. And there have been no draws under the program for skilled professionals since 2020.
To increase your chances of receiving an invitation to apply for Express Entry selection, we recommend keeping an eye on history of passing scores and number of invitations.
