Express Entry draw figures for July 12, 2017 are below.
A fresh Express Entry draw for permanent residency candidates will see invitations to apply sent to candidates with 440 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points or higher.
Invitations to Apply for permanent residence will now be sent to 3,202 candidates of all participating programs following today’s draw.
It’s the second draw to take place since the changes to the CRS on June 6, affecting scores for those who either have siblings in Canada, or an ability to speak French.
It represents a fall in the number of points required by candidates in order to receive an Invitation to Apply since the previous Express Entry draw on June 28. On that occasion, 3,409 candidates with a score of 449 CRS points or higher received an invitation 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.
The July 12 Express Entry draw is the 67th since the Express Entry system came into operation, and the 17th so far this year.
