The 170th Express Entry draw December 23, 2020

The 170th Express Entry draw December 23, 2020

The minimum CRS score invited by IRCC was 468, one point lower than the previous Express Entry draw held on December 09, 2020.  A total of 5,000 candidates were invited to the Express Entry 170th draw held on December 23, 2020. Candidates are ranked using a point-based system known as the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Human capital factors such as age, education, work experience, and language ability in English or French are used to calculate the CRS score. The highest-ranking candidates are then selected from the pool and invited to apply for permanent residence.

Usually, PNP draws have higher requirements. Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points towards their CRS score, which explains the higher cut-off score.

In case of a tie between candidates, a tie-breaking rule is applied. For the 170th draw those candidates who submitted their profile before June 04, 2020 at 13:39:44 UTC received their Invitation To Apply (ITA) letter. If more than one candidate has the lowest score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their Express Entry profiles.
