Consistent Fall in CRS Scores
This all-program followed the previous trends of a gradually decreasing cut-off score requirement and a rise in the number of invitations to apply (ITAs) issued. The number of backlogged PR applications is being processed, resulting in gradual fall in the CRS score requirement with each draw. Since all-program Express Entry draws have resumed, the cut-off score has decreased to 53 points as a whole and a total of 17,250 ITAs have been issued.
Record Number of Immigration
Express Entry is undoubtedly one of the most popular and fastest pathways to Canada PR. Every year Canada invites more than 100,000 skilled workers via the Express Entry System.
So far in 2022, Canada has welcomed a record number of newcomers via Express Entry and if the same trend continues, it is possible that Canada might exceed its 2022 targets of inviting 430,000 newcomers.
