On June 25, 2018 the IRCC invited 3,750 candidates to apply for permanent residence who were in the Express Entry pool with a CRS score of 442 and higher.
As expected, the CRS score declined from the previous draw. As we move into July / August, we anticipate the CRS score to decrease into the 430 - 440 range. The IRCC is likely to keep the draw size at 3,750 for a few more draws and perhaps increase to 4,000 for another 3 or 4 draws. Should this occur, it will support lower CRS scores into the 430 range.
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 at least 415+. To calculate your Express Entry score, use our Express Entry CRS Calculator.
