Express Entry Update

Today, December 19th 2019, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued another round of invitations to apply for permanent residence under the Express Entry system. IRCC issued a total of 3,200 invitations. The minimum score selected in today’s draw was 469, a decrease of three points from last week’s draw.

This week’s draw issued 3,200 invitations to apply for permanent residence, the same as the most recent draw held last Wednesday, December 11th. IRCC indicates there are 16,226 candidates in the Express Entry pool with scores between 451 and 600 as of December 16th 2019, an increase from when this data was last released. We therefore anticipate that the minimum scores selected in January 2020 will remain high.
