129th Express Entry Draw: 3,900 Applicants with 475 CRS Received ITAs


3,900 Express Entry applicants obtained invitations to appeal for Canadian PR in the 129th Federal Express Entry draw held on 30 October 2019. The minimum required Comprehensive Ranking System cut-off score for this draw has risen to 475 points. However, as the preceding draw was a federal skilled trades-specific draw, today’s increase in the score is not shocking.

Increased CRS Score Later Federal Skilled Trades Specific Draw

The 129th Express Entry draw noticed a raise in minimum CRS cut-off score to 475. Even though this CRS score is greater than that we have observed in prior weeks, it is necessary to note that the 128th Express Entry Draw was particular to applicants who had an effective profile by the Federal Skilled Trades Class. The trade-specific draw announced 500 Invitations to Appeal with a least C.R.S score of 357. If future draws proceed to include all 3 programs of the Federal Express Entry then we can assume that the cut-off will lower to what we have observed in prior rounds that were not program-specific.

Today’s draw issued 3,900 ITAs to applicants to apply for Canada PR, producing the entire number of ITAs declared in 2019 to 71,700. Canada resumed push towards higher than 1 million immigrants to be welcomed in the subsequent years, we can assume that the number of ITAs announced each draw will remain to be high.
