Canada held two Express Entry Draws in single day

Canada Express Entry Draw Rounds of invitations 10th June 2020

Canada has invited Express Entry Provincial Nomination & Canadian Experience Class candidates in two different draws held on 09th April, 2020.

The Express Entry manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main skilled labour immigration categories – the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for an Express Entry invitation to apply (ITA), though additional CRS points are awarded if a candidate has one.

Candidates follow Canadian Immigration points and are ranked in the pool based on a score awarded under the CRS that considers factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French and then picked up in subsequent Canada Express Entry Invitations draw.

Details of two different Canada Express Entry draws are below:

For Provincial Nomination Program

Invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence were issued to provincial nomination program candidates with Comprehensive Ranking Scores (CRS) as low as 698.
