Apply Now: Canada Issued 3,400 Invitations in First Express Entry of 2020

Canada has issued 3,400 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for the Canadian permanent residence in the first Express Entry draw of 2020. Invitations were made to the candidates with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 473. Canada immigration authorities held this program on January 8, 2020.

The Express Entry system is an immigration system implemented by Canadian immigration authorities. It is Canada’s primary source of skilled foreign workers. It manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s federal high-skilled immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Now, this express entry system is different than previous invitation round held December 19, which issued 3,200 ITAs. The minimum CRS in the last draw was 469, which was four points lower than the latest draw.

The federal government has stated its intention of welcoming more than one million newcomers over the next three years. Although the CRS cut-off has increased four points since the last draw, it is no reason to be discouraged.
