Canada’s Latest Express Entry Draw Round #228 results were announced on August 3, 2022. In this draw, IRCC invited 2,000 candidates to apply for permanent residence, continuing the trend followed by previous Express¬† Entry Draws that happened on July 6, 2022, and July 20, 2022. The cut-off score for the latest all-program Express Entry draw was 533.

The draw invited more high-scoring candidates (250+ as compared to the last draw). Although, the cut-off score was pretty disappointing, only 9 points fewer than the last draw. The details for the latest Express Entry Draw, August 2022 below:

When Will CRS Cut-Off Go Down?

The latest CRS cut-off scores for Canadian Express Entry are extremely high. With a large cut-off score of 557, the draw held on July 6, 2022, let many eagerly anticipated candidates down. Even in the subsequent draw on July 20, 2022, the cut-off score only decreased by 15 points (542).

The most concerning thing in the latest all- program Express Entry Draw was the cut-off score barely went down (9 points only). This makes it even more challenging for below 500 CRS candidates to get an ITA.

So, when will the CRS cut-off score decrease? The number of profiles in the Express Entry pool as well as the current trend the IRCC is following determine the future cut-off scores. The number of invitations needs to be gradually increased with each draw to make the cut-off go below 500 CRS. We need at least 3 more draws to get to the 510-520 range.

The size of the Express Entry pool is also increasing with the addition of new candidates. Thus, the latest Express Entry draws with low ITAs are not affecting the CRS scores much. Canada will need to send out more than 2000 invites in the forthcoming draws in order to lower the CRS Cut-off score. It will resemble this if future draws continue the current pattern of invitations (+250) and cut-off (-15):
