The May 15 Express Entry draw has the lowest CRS requirement for Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates since January 2019
Canada’s Express Entry draws are seeing a downward trend in score requirements for Canadian Experience Class (CEC)-specific draws, as the May 15 draw had the lowest points cut off for this cohort since January 2019.
The new Express Entry round issued 3,371 invitations to CEC candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of 447 or higher.
The cut-off score of 447 is a decrease of five points from the previous CEC draw on May 1, which had a minimum score of 452 and was previously the lowest CRS requirement of 2020.
The May 15 draw was the second invitation round in 24 hours to issue Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence.
Another 529 ITAs were issued to Express Entry candidates nominated through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) yesterday, May 14. The minimum CRS score for these candidates was 718.
