Express Entry CRS score requirement in 2019
The Express Entry CRS score remained above 440 throughout the year 2018. Now, we need to understand the factors that influenced the draw results to get an idea what it will be like in the year 2019. Let’s take a look at the factors affecting CRS score or cut off marks in EE system
The provincial nominee programs have played a huge role in EE draw results in the year 2018 and it is going to be vital in 2019 as well. The share of the Provincial nomination in the total Express Entry Invitations to Apply (ITAs) is rising significantly year on year.As a result more and more applicants are securing the PNP acquiring the Canada PR invitations from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) based on the same.
The provincial nomination allocate massive 600 additional CRS points to the applicants, which raises the total CRS points of the applicants drastically and win the ITA for the applicant in the very next draw of federal express entry system.
Canadian government made some vital changes in the express entry rules in June 6, 2017. These changes have made key impact on the express entry draw results in 2017 and 2018. As per these changes, IRCC will now allocate additional points for following factors, i.e.
|Change||New system||Previous system|
|Points awarded for principal applicant or spouse/common-law partner having a sibling in Canada||15 CRS points||No additional points awarded|
|French CLB 7 or better + English CLB 4 or below (or no proven English ability)||15 CRS points||No additional points awarded|
|French CLB 7 or better + English CLB 5 or better||30 CRS points||No additional points awarded|
The applicants are now able to get additional points based on above factors and hence, able to enhance their CRS Score. It also had key impact on the cut off marks announced by IRCC in every express entry draw.
What will be CRS score requirement in 2019?
One thing is sure that above factors will continue to affect draw results and cut off marks in the year 2019 as well. Hence, going by this theory, we will not see major or drastic drop in the CRS score requirement next year. However, considering the huge annual immigration target of Canada, we may expect the some sort of reduction in the cut off from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). We may possibly see the lock in 430s this time around as it was in 440s last time.
Having said this, as an express entry applicant, you must not keep yourself busy in guessing game, rather you must explore the alternate options to obtain Canada PR in coordination of the trusted and registered Immigration expert. Few of the alternates could be applying in Provincial Nominee Programs and finding ways to enhance your current CRS points.
