For years, the authorities of the CRS have held draw sessions on Wednesdays, after every two weeks. But recently, they have deviated from the Wednesday pattern, and the next draw is still unclear. According to previous reports, the latest CRS draw will be conducted on Monday or Tuesday. This will be the first time that the new cut-off for the CRS is being used. However, the authorities have not confirmed any changes to the schedule, so it is best to check the latest news and updates about the latest CRS draw.
The latest draw will be held on September 14th, 2021. It will be held for candidates who are part of the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program. In this round, 2,000 ITAs will be awarded to applicants with an Express Entry score of 462 or higher. Those with a CRS score below this number will be left out. The next CRS draw is expected to be held on September 15th, 2021.
The CRS draws will be held monthly, and the process is free and easy. There are no application fees or medical tests to fill out. You don't need to pay an application fee. You can submit your profile on the CRS website. This way, you won't have to wait long for your results. The draw is expected to happen on the fifteenth of each month. Once you've submitted your Express Entry profile, you'll be able to start preparing for it.
In the past, there were a few draws every month, with around fourteen days between them. On May 15, for example, the Federal Skilled Trades program invited almost 6,000 candidates. This created a one-month gap between invites. Moreover, the backlog of applications had pushed the CRS score up to high levels. The next draw could bring the score down to normal levels. The Canadian government has stated that it will continue to conduct draw sessions on a regular basis in order to ensure that there are no serious delays in the process.
This year's draw was held on May 16 and released on June 14. The CRS score was at a high point for the first two draws, and then it fell below it again in the last one. There were no candidates with higher scores. The number of invites issued in the Draw (204) was over a thousand, almost double that of the draw in June. Despite the backlog of applications, the CRS score may fall below this level once again.
The time between CRS draws has increased over time, and it is important to stay tuned to the latest draw date to increase your chances of receiving an invitation. The numbers of ITAs in the Express Entry program are increasing each month, and only the highest-scoring candidates will receive an invite. A low-score candidate will receive an invite, but the minimum score for the first draw is 450. The CRS trend curve indicates that the minimum score for an ITA is over 450.
Despite the increasing time between draws, the CRS trend curve indicates that the average score between ITAs is over one month. During the most recent draw (204), only 4% of candidates received an ITA. The highest-score range received invitations from ITAs. This means the minimum score for an ITA is over 450. If you're interested in applying for a position in Australia, there's no need to wait until November. The next CRS draw will be held on January 21.
The time between draws has been increasing steadily. For example, the current CRS draw is a week before the next one. It is important to keep this in mind. It's not uncommon for the cut-off to be higher than the minimum. The ITA is an invitation to apply for a permanent residency, and you should take it. So, be sure to keep an eye on the CRS draws. The number of ITAs in each month varies from two to eight.
In November, the Canadian government held the last draw of the Express Entry. The Draw #210 was aimed at candidates nominated through the Provincial Nominee Program. On December 8, 2021, the next one will target individuals who had attained the lowest score in the priority skills stream. So, it's important to follow the latest CRS draws closely. You'll be surprised to see how many candidates will get invited. It can be difficult to know if you'll be chosen.
