Express Entry: CRS drops to 397 in surprise draw

On May 20, Canada held an unusual Express Entry draw. Not only did it come out of the blue, eligible candidates only needed a score of 397.

We have not seen an Express Entry draw with a score requirement this low since the historic February 13 draw where the cutoff score was just 75.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 1,842 candidates who may be eligible for permanent residence through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

IRCC published the cutoff time for the tie-break rule, as per administrative requirements. It does not necessarily mean there was an actual tie. Candidates who had the minimum score of 397 were only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before April 24, 2021 at 12:09:24 UTC.
