Express Entry draw figures for April 19, 2017 are below.

The number of ranking points needed by Express Entry candidates before they can apply for permanent residency in Canada has fallen once again to yet another all-time low, in today’s Express Entry draw.

The April 19 draw will see 3,665 Express Entry candidates receive an invitation to submit their application. They will need to have at least 415 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.

It’s the highest number of candidates ever to receive an invite in an Express Entry draw. Just a month ago, candidates would have needed 441 points to apply for residency, so today’s draw continues the significant downward trend.

It’s good news for applicants, who have been watching developments closely since a series of Express Entry changes were implemented. These changes are impacting the number of points awarded to candidates with a qualifying job offer, and benefits those with Canadian educational credentials.

It was announced this past week that more changes would follow in June, affecting scores for those who either have siblings in Canada, or an ability to speak French.

It’s the tenth Express Entry draw of 2017. This most recent draw represents a fall in the number of points being required from the previous draw on April 12. On that occasion, 3,923 candidates with 423 CRS points or more received invitations to apply.

The CRS is a score out of 1,200 used to benchmark federal economic applicants against one another.

It’s a part of the Express Entry mechanism, which was established in January 2015 to process residency applications.

The score is used as a cut-off point in Express Entry draws. It is designed to project a candidate’s likelihood of being economically successful in Canada.

Invitations are being issued to 3,665 candidates following today’s Express Entry draw. It’s the 60th since the Express Entry system came into operation.
