CIC Draws for 2020

UPDATE: For the first time since March 4th, IRCC held an open Express Entry draw on 8th July 2020. Hopefully this is an indication that things are slowly returning to normal. Please keep checking the IRCC website and this blog for updates, and stay safe!

 

The latest round of invitations for the Express Entry for 2020 was held on 6th August 2020 and was for the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FST). This is the 24th draw for 2020, and the 159th draw held since the introduction of the Express Entry program in 2015.

The cut-off CRS score for this round was 415 and the number of invitations issued was 250.

The next draw is expected to be held in another 2 weeks.
