June 19th Express Entry Draw Sees Lower CRS Score, 1,499 Invitations Sent

Now Lower CRS Score for Express Entry Draw

On June 19, 2024, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) conducted the latest round of invitations under the Express Entry system, issuing 1,499 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence. This draw marks a significant development as the lowest-ranked candidate invited had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 663 – a notable decrease from the previous draw on May 30, 2024, where the minimum score was 676.

The Express Entry system is Canada’s primary source of skilled foreign workers, managing the pool of candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. The latest draw targeted candidates from the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) category, underscoring the vital role provinces and territories play in addressing regional labor market needs.

Key Details of the June 19th Express Entry Draw:

  • Number of Invitations Issued: 1,499
  • Rank Required to be Invited: 1,499 or above
  • Date and Time of Round: June 19, 2024, at 14:37:26 UTC
  • CRS Score of Lowest-Ranked Candidate Invited: 663

Previous Draw (May 30, 2024):

  • Number of Invitations Issued: 2,985
  • Rank Required to be Invited: Provincial Nominee Program
  • CRS Score of Lowest-Ranked Candidate Invited: 676

The decrease in the minimum CRS score required for the June 19th draw is a positive development for Express Entry candidates, as it potentially opens doors for individuals with lower scores to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA). This trend could be attributed to various factors, including the IRCC’s efforts to clear backlogs and expedite processing times, as well as the impact of recent policy changes and adjustments to the CRS score system.

Express Entry candidates who receive an ITA have 60 days to submit their complete applications for permanent residence, providing the required documentation and supporting evidence. Successful applicants can then begin the process of settling in Canada as permanent residents, with the opportunity to pursue employment opportunities and contribute to the nation’s economic growth.

As Canada continues to grapple with labor shortages across various sectors, the Express Entry system remains a crucial avenue for attracting and retaining skilled foreign talent. By leveraging the Provincial Nominee Program and collaborating with provinces and territories, the IRCC aims to address regional workforce needs and support economic development across the country.

Prospective Express Entry candidates are encouraged to closely monitor future draw details, including any potential changes to program requirements or scoring criteria. With the continuous evolution of immigration policies and the dynamic nature of the labor market, staying informed and prepared can significantly improve one’s chances of receiving an ITA and realizing the dream of permanent residency in Canada.

The latest Express Entry draws underscore Canada’s commitment to attracting global talent and fostering a diverse and skilled workforce capable of driving innovation, productivity, and economic prosperity. As the nation continues to navigate the challenges of labor shortages and demographic shifts, the Express Entry system will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in shaping Canada’s future prosperity.
