Decrease in CRS Points Requirement in October 18 Express Entry Draw

The latest Express Entry draw for immigration to Canada has taken place, with 2,757 candidates in the pool invited to apply on October 18. The number of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points required in order for a candidate to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) on this occasion was 436, down from the 438 required in the previous draw, which took place on October 4.

Decrease in CRS Points Requirement in October 18 Express Entry Draw

Invited candidates now have 90 days to submit a complete application for Canadian permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Accompanying family members, including a spouse or common-law partner, as well as dependent children, may also come to Canada along with the principal applicant.

The CRS cut-off threshold has been around the mid-430’s for the past six draws, though over this time there has been a slight dip in the number of ITAs issued per draw, compared to the size of draws that took place earlier in the year. The record low threshold of any draw so far was 413 on May 31 of this year, right before IRCC made improvements to the CRS that took effect on June 6. These changes introduced new additional points factors for candidates with a sibling in Canada, while candidates with French ability also benefited from additional points.
