129th Express Entry Draw: 3,900 Invitations Announced for Canadian PR -31st October, 2019

129th Express Entry Draw
In the recent Canadian Express Entry draw that took place on 30 October 2019, the Refugees, Immigration, and Citizenship Canada (I.R.C.C) issued 3900 invitations to appeal for Canada PR. The cut-off Comprehensive Ranking System (C.R.S) score was 475 points.

Unlike the former Express Entry draw which is program-specific, the 30 October 2019 draw was an all-program Federal Express Entry draw. The minimum cut-off CRS score in the former all-program draw took place on 2 October was 464 points. At the corresponding time, the 16 October program-specific draw brought only 500 applicants belonging to Program Federal Skilled Trades (FSTP).

Tie-break rule was practiced in the recent Express Entry draw, the time-stamp provided being 29 August 2019 at 03:50 UTC. It intends the Express Entry draw preferred applicants with a minimum CRS score of 475 points, who had provided their profiles into the Express Entry Pool prior to the announced time and date.

Reasons for Increasing CRS Cut-off Score

The CRS cut-off score of the 30 October 2019 Express Entry draw was 475 which is the biggest in 3 years. You might be staring at why there is a notable increase in CRS cut-off score at this time. The principal reason is the lengthy gap within the recent draw and the former all-program draw. As the draw of Express Entry held on 16 October was limited to Federal Skilled Trades applicants, four weeks have crossed since the previous all-program draw, which was held on 2 Oct.

The long period within two all-program draws indicates a greater number of applicants accessing the Express Entry pool. As a consequence, the number of competing profiles will be greater in number and so the CRS cut-off score raises.

It is common for the CRS cut-off score to rise if the gap between the two all-program Federal Express Entry draws is higher. Most apparently, the CRS cut-off score would be dropping in the upcoming draws.
