The Government of Canada, in a new Express Entry draw, is providing a chance for 500 Federal Skilled Trades Class candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence. The draw is held on October 16 and the candidates invited in this category must have comprehensive Ranking Scores as low as 357.
This is the second draw in 2019 targeting the FSTC candidates through a program-specific one. The draw is open to foreign nationals and the candidates under this category should have a certificate of qualification stating that they are eligible to work in Canadian skilled trade. Also the candidates with eligibility criteria of employment in Canada can apply.
The Express Entry System manages the three Federal High Skilled immigration programs as listed below:
- The Federal Skilled Trades Class
- The Federal Skilled Worker Class
- The Canadian Experience Class
Most Express Entry draws involves candidates from all the above three classes. But this draw is a rare exception to the policy. Canada Immigration Consultants
The Express Entry’s previous draw was held on October 2. It was an all-program draw and issued 3,900 invitations to apply (ITAs). The expectation is that the IRCC in the coming weeks will resume larger draws along with given Canada’s higher admission targets for its three Federal High Skilled Immigration programs in 2019 and 2020.
The scores under the CRS were given to the eligible candidates considering the factors including age, English or French proficiency, education, skilled work experience.
This specific Express Entry pool unlike its other program invitation rounds, tend to result in higher cut-off scores. The niche draws for specified cohort states that they are targeting only a small pool of candidates.
Today’s cut-off score is 357 was 81 points, which is lower than the lowest cut-off score this year in an all-program Express Entry draw, which was 438. Click Here for Free Canada PR Eligibility Check
