2nd Express Entry Draw of 2019

The second Express Entry draw of the year was made on January 23, 2019.  This round, 3,900 were invited to apply to become permanent residents in Canada.

The lowest invitation score was 443.  The minimum Comprehensive Ranking Score was six point lower than the previous draw.    This score is the lowest score yet for a January draw through the Express Entry stream.

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) assigns points for various criteria used to assess your skills, education, language ability, work experience, among other factors.

If your points are below 443 you may qualify for Express Entry using a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) via one of Canada’s Provinces or Territories.  If your PNP Application is successful, you will receive an additional 600 points which will ensure your success in being selected for Express Entry.

The Express Entry program was designed to manage the pool of candidates for the Federal High Skilled economic class categories:

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Class;
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Class;
  3. Canadian Experience Class.
