Why CRS Score is Still High in the Latest Express Entry Draw?

There must have been a massive number of new additions to the pool, resulting in the latest cut-off score dropping to 2 points. The Express Entry Pool Breakdown above shows the profiles in the 0-601+ and 501-600 range have increased significantly, which is why the cut-off score is still high.

Express Entry Targets: New Immigration Levels Plan 2023-2025

IRCC will grant permanent residency status to 82,880 immigrants in 2023. The Express Entry Targets are 109,020 for 2024 and 114,000 for 2025, which is about one-fifth of Canada’s overall immigration targets. These goals demonstrate how crucial economic immigration is to Canada in light of the country’s persistent labour shortage. Up to 90% of Canada’s labour force growth and about 75% of population growth are attributed to immigration.

Here is the New Canada Immigration Levels Plan 2023-2025

The Next Express Entry Draw Prediction: November 9, 2022

The Next Express Entry Draw will be held on November 9, 2022. This will be the last Express Entry draw based on NOC 2016 version 1.3. After November 16, 2022, the new NOC 2021 version 1.0 system will be implemented.

We can predict the next Express Entry Draw with some simple calculations. Firstly, we need some important metrics:

  1. No. of candidates in the pool after the last draw
  2. No. of new candidates that may get added
  3. The total no. of candidates expected before the draw
  4. The expected draw size

No. of candidates in the pool after the last draw

The number of candidates added to the pool between October 26, 2022, and November 9, 2022. As there is no way to predict it exactly, let’s take the average number of candidates added to the pool in the last three draws.

In today’s Express Entry Latest Draw, a total of 4,250 invitations were issued, out of which 466 straight away went to the 601-Above CRS range. The rest of the 2,784 invitations were issued to the 501-600 range.

If your CRS Score is below 490, you can increase it using the following ways:
