By Express Entry Draw, News No Comments

Canada’s Latest Express Entry Draw Round #229 will be held on August 17, 2022. In this all-program draw, a total of 2,250 candidates will get invitations to apply for permanent residence. Canada is most likely to maintain the trend followed in the last three draws. The cut-off score for the latest all-program Express Entry draw could be 524, 9 points lesser than the previous draw.

The Latest Express Entry Draw Results August 17, 2022:

  • Express Entry Round: #229
  • Draw date: August 17, 2022
  • CRS score cut-off:  Not out yet
  • No. of candidates invited:  Not out yet
  • Tie-breaking rule: Not out yet

Why cut-off score is still so high?

The answer to that question is the long pause on draws. The last CEC Draw was 10 months ago and the last FSW Draw was 18 months ago. Since there were no draws the pool got bigger and bigger and now it is taking time to drop down the CRS score to the pre-Covid ranges.

For Canadian Express Entry, the most recent CRS cut-off scores are very high. The draw held on August 3, 2022, disappointed many widely expected applicants with a high cut-off score of 533. Even so, the cut-off score only dropped by 9 points from the previous draw. The same can be expected in the upcoming draws.

The recent all-program Express Entry Draw’s scarcely changing cut-off score was the most worrying development (9 points only). This makes getting an ITA for candidates with CRS scores below 500 much more difficult.

In order to decrease the CRS Cut-off score in the upcoming draws, Canada will need to send out more than 2000 invitations. If subsequent draws follow the current pattern of invites (+250) and cut-off (-9), it will resemble this:
