Express Entry Draw- March 14, 2018: 456 CRS score

On March 14, 2018, the IRCC invited 3,000 candidates to apply for permanent residence who were in the Express Entry pool and had a CRS score of 456+. This is now the 3rd draw in a row the IRCC has issued 3,000 invitations. It appears IRCC has changed their strategy around invitation numbers. Last year, all draw sizes varied and were odd numbers. This year, we have seen 5 draws of 2,750 and more recently, 3 draws of 3,000.

Our firm anticipates more candidates to be selected in the coming draws which should result in lower CRS scores, possibly in the 420 - 430 range. Last year saw a new CRS low of 413.

In 2018, 85,000 people are expected to be selected in Express Entry system, under the Federal Skilled Worker program.

The ideal candidate under Express Entry has a score of 415+. To calculate your Express Entry score, use our Express Entry CRS Calculator.
