The year 2020 has been unique year so far in view of many reasons. Apart from affecting the health sector in most advanced nations, it has had impact on other key industries as well including immigration sector.
Canada, however, the applicants and aspirants of Canadian Permanent residence visa are eagerly waiting for the EE draws and minimum CRS to get Canada PR visa this year.
The IRCC has been smartly mixing and opening the Express Entry All program draw and PNP class draw in tended.
Well, guessing the winning Comprehensive Ranking System score is a herculean task for sure. The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) always surprise the applicants with their unexpected draw results and CRS cut-off.
However, based on the latest EE draw results and ongoing the trend of the qualifying marks; you can try to get an idea about the same.
The cut off was hovering around in 470s in the first quarter of the year. Then came the Covid-19 caused disruption and Immigration Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) started opening the program specific draws for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) class candidates.
The Zigzag trend in the below graph indicates the program specific draws.
Now, once again, Canadian government has begun opening the all-program draws and this time around, in addition, the qualifying marks are hovering around the 470s.
In the last all-program express entry draw, the Comprehensive Ranking System score requirement was 476 points.
Therefore, as per the trend, if your CRS score is anywhere near the 475 mark, you are good to get the ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian permanent residence visa.
On the contrary, if your score is not up to the mark, it is better to explore the alternate options.
Applying in a relevant Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), obtaining the provincial nomination and getting the 600 CRS points based on the same is the best way to make a strong claim for the ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canada PR visa from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

The unexpected Express Entry rounds in 2020 continue to surprise the Canadian PR applicants in 2020. Being one of the most popular immigration pathways to apply for Canada Permanent Residency, Express Entry manages to fetch everyone’s attention with every passing draw.
This year as well, the IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) has kept the draw results optimistic to ensure that more and more applicants obtain their ITAs (Invitations to Apply) and the country can meet its target set by Canada immigration level plan 2020-2022.
The last two draws surprised all the applicants as both were opened in a week’s time. The IRCC issued a humongous number of Invitations, i.e. total of 3900 ITAs in the last two consecutive Express Entry draws held on 18th March and 23rd March, respectively.
Usually, IRCC announces draws every fortnightly to EE applicants with top CRS scores to apply for a Canadian PR visa.
The IRCC also announces a minimum CRS score requirement for each draw and candidates profiles that are able to meet the qualifying scores get an ITA. However, as mentioned, the last two draws were launched within a week.
With the last two draws, the total number of ITAs issued to Express Entry candidates so far in 2020 has reached up to 22,600.
|#Draw||Date||No. of ITAs Issued||Minimum CRS Score Requirement|
|#140||23-March-2020||3,232 (Exclusively for Canadian Experience Class candidates)||467|
Apart from the latest draws, prevalent COVID-19 outbreak is a key concern for aspiring immigrants who wish to apply or have already applied for Canada PR. People are coming up with a lot of questions about how COVID-19 may impact the Express Entry.
If we go by the latest draws held on March 18 and 23, it is clear that Canada is still issuing invitations to EE candidates.
Yes. Canada is still processing PR visa applications under Express Entry and PNP, but applicants may expect a short span of delays.
In this case, you don’t need to worry as the federal government has announced a few exemptions and IRCC will not refuse any application due to incompleteness. In fact, the IRCC is providing an additional 30 days to complete and submit an application along with documents, i.e. now you have a total 90 days time.
Amidst this public health crisis, the main concern of Canada is to provide factual information. There is no statement issued by the government regarding any possible impact of the COVID-19 on the CRS score cut-off.
The below table can better display the score distribution of EE candidates in past draws held in 2020:
|Date||Minimum CRS Score Requirement|

The increased CRS score requirement in the last couple of draws has made the most express entry applicants concerned about their invites. The candidates who have their CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score around 450 marks desperately waiting for the cut off to fall down, which is placed beyond 470 at the moment.
The qualifying marks were 472 and 475 points in the last two express entry draw opened on November 12 and October 30, 2019, respectively.
Express Entry draws started off moderately at the start of the year and hovered around 450 marks till May 2019. During this period the lowest mark the cut-off score touched was 438 points (30th January draw).
However, with the start of June month it rocketed up to 470 points and since then it never came down to 450 marks again for the Federal Skilled Worker Category. It reduced once to 357 points once, but that draw was for the Federal Skilled Trades category and not regular FSW category of Express Entry system.
This year, we now have three draws left, considering the fortnightly draw pattern being followed by IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada). Now keeping in mind the trend of the maximum number of invitations per draw, i.e. 3,900 in next three draws (3,900 x 3) IRCC will invite nearly 11,700 candidates to apply for Canada PR.
Now, let’s take a look at the Express Entry pool. As per the express entry pool status on November 8, 2019, the pool has a total of 14,937 candidates with a CRS score ranging from 451 to 1200. Even if we subtract the number of candidates invited in the last EE draw, there will be still over 11,000 candidates remaining in the pool with CRS score more than 451 points. It clearly indicates that in the next three draws of this year, the CRS Point score is unlikely to come down below 450 marks.
If you want to get Canada PR visa invitation from IRCC with a low CRS score, the best option is to apply in the most appropriate provincial nominee program, obtain the provincial nomination and increase your point score by 600 CRS points based on the same.
If you want to apply and obtain Canada PR through provincial nomination, you may coordinate with qualified Visa Advisors at Visas Avenue to choose and apply in the right PNP based on your profile.
