Latest Express Entry Draw: 469 CRS, 5,000 ITAs
In today's Express Entry Draw, IRCC issued 5,000 invitations to individuals with a cut-off score of 469+.
To be a good candidate to obtain PR
In order to be a good candidate to apply for PR, individuals currently need to come to Canada as a student or obtain a work permit to gain the additional points necessary to score 465+ points. In most cases, a foreign worker must be sponsored by a Canadian company to obtain a work permit which is challenging. However, there are a couple work permits that do not require sponsorship, such as a working holiday visa or an individual buying a business in Canada and obtaining an Owner Operator Work Permit to manage their own business.
Individuals who study or work in Canada earn between 55 and 125 additional points more than an individual from outside Canada. It has now reached a point where no individual can apply for PR from outside Canada without having Canadian schooling or Canadian work experience. However, as discussed above, this may change in future draws. This has yet to be determined.
IRCC will invite 85,000 individuals to apply for Permanent Residence via Express Entry in 2021. The ideal candidate under Express Entry has a score of at least 465+. To calculate your Express Entry score, use our Express Entry CRS Calculator.
