Why is the CRS score cut-off too high?

It was already suggested by the IRCC that the score cut-off is going to be high whenever the Express Entry draws 2022 resumes. The trend is going to be the same for a couple of months as per recent predictions. This is mainly due to the presence of competitive candidates in the Express Entry pool. There were about 220,000 candidates waiting for the draw in the pool, which is the highest on record.

Why does IRCC aim to invite only 1,750 candidates?

Earlier Express Entry draws used to invite 3,000 to 5,000 applicants in each round. However, only 1,750 are invited this time in the All-Program Express Entry Draw 2022 for 20 July, 2022. The possible reasons for this could be:

  • A huge backlog of immigration applications
  • Reduced immigration targets for Express Entry 2022
  • Introduction of new immigration programs
