Express Entry New Draw: 4500 ITA issued with minimum CRS 478
On November 5, Canada held its latest Express Entry draw which is the third time Canada has issued the largest number of invitations. This year Canada has issued 87,350 ITAs so far. A total of 4500 Express Entry candidates received their invitation to apply. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking Score(CRS) requirement for this draw is 478, which is higher than the last draw held on October 15.
In the recent announcement by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada(IRCC), they mentioned that the French-speaking candidates can earn additional 25 points for their language skills and bilingual candidates will get 50, which was previously set to 30. Typically, IRCC holds Express Entry draws every two weeks, but this draw was delayed in order to make the update on all of the affected profiles in the Express Entry pool.
