February 5th, 2020 – Express Entry Draw 

February 5th, 2020 – Express Entry Draw 

Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 3,500 applicants with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 472 or higher to apply for permanent residence. The CRS score increased 1 point from the previous draw held on January 22nd, 2020.

Today’s draw also marks the 136th round of invitations since Express Entry came into force and with that, IRCC has applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of January 30th, 2020, at 07:36:26 UTC. This simply means that all candidates with a CRS score of 472 or above, and previous candidates with a score of 472 or above who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before the selected tie-breaking date and time will receive an invitation in this round. 

Please note that on January 1st, 2020, IRCC revised how much money you need to settle in Canada. You may need to update your settlement funds in your Express Entry profile. 

If you have any questions about express entry, permanent residence or the revision of required settlement finds please contact us directly.
