IMPACT – MEDIUM
Canada conducted its 11th Express Entry draw of the year Wednesday, but limited it to two of the skilled migration programs. The government issued 500 invitations to apply for permanent residency to candidates under the Federal Skilled Trades program with the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score of 288 to qualify, and 200 invitations to apply under the Provincial Nominee Program with the lowest qualifying score of 902.
The following table lists all Express Entry draws thus far in 2018.
902 (Provincial Nominees )
BAL Analysis: Canada continues to invite a high number of individuals to apply for permanent residency. The increased number of invitations in previous draws and the low minimum scores are good news for applicants.
