In the Express Entry draw held on November 27, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC) invited 3600 candidates to apply for permanent residence. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) for the invited candidates was 471 points. This is one point lower compared to the previous Express Entry draw held on November 13.

Tie-break rule was applied in the November 27 draw and the time stamp given was November 11, 2019 at 6:29:10 UTC. It means the draw prioritised eligible candidates who had submitted their Express Entry profiles before the said date and time.

Though the minimum CRS cut off score touched a record high in the October 30 Express Entry draw, it has been showing a decreasing trend in the subsequent draws. The CRS cut-off score in the October 30 draw was 475 points.

The cut-off score in the latest draw is still comparatively high at 472 and the longer gap occurred between two all-program Express Entry draws occurred in October is assumed to be the reason. When the gap between two all-program Express Entry draws is longer, more eligible profiles enter the Express Entry pool. As a result, the CRS cut-off score is set high by the IRCC to select the most eligible candidates. However, as Canada plans to admit a high number of immigrants through Express Entry, the CRS cut-off score is expected to come down further in the near future.

The Immigration Levels Plan of Canada for 2019-2021 envisages to admit around 25600 candidates through Express Entry during the three-year plan period. Another 200000 candidates will be admitted through Provincial Nominee Programs during this period.
