On July 20, 2022 an Express Entry draw #227 was held. In the second all-program EE draw of the year, Canadian immigration department has invited 1,750 candidates to apply for PR (Permanent Residence) Visa with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score requirement of 542 CRS points only.
Here are the details of the draw:
Draw Number: 227
Date of Draw: July 20, 2022
Number of Invitations Issued:
Minimum CRS: 542
Program Specified: Non-specified
Tie-breaking rule: December 30, 2021
An all-program draw considers every candidate in the Express Entry pool, rather than program-specific, and invites these candidates to apply for permanent residence based on their CRS score. Candidates at or above the minimum CRS score in the pool will be invited to apply for permanent residence.
IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of December 30, 2021 at 15:29:35 UTC, meaning candidates with a score of 542 were invited to apply if they had submitted their Express Entry profile before the timestamp.
When is the next Express Entry draw expected?
According to an internal IRCC memo, all-program Express Entry draws can be expected every two weeks. Following this schedule, the next anticipated all-program Express Entry draw will be August 3, 2022.
CRS is likely to fall further in upcoming EE draws
With all-program EE draws opening regularly, the CUT OFF is likely to fall further inviting more and more Express Entry candidates with low point score to apply for PR (Permanent Residence) visa. Therefore, if you have not received ITA due to high CUT OFF in first two all-program draws, you must stay positive about your chances in upcoming draws.
You can also increase your CRS score by obtaining provincial nomination from a suitable Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) of Canada.
