Express Entry Draw August 19, 2020 #156

The latest round of invitation for Express Entry Draw took place on August 19, 2020, which was the 160th Express Entry Draw. The draw offered 600 ITA to those with a cut-off score of 771. This draw was specifically towards candidates who qualify for Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Candidates who have been invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence. Keep in mind the reason this cut off CRS score is so high is because when you apply for PNP then you can gain 600 points to add to your CRS score. This was the third draw conducted in August. Canada is inviting thousands of immigrants to apply for Permanent Residency every month.

The next express entry draw is expected to occur on August 20, 2020. We expect there to be another Express Entry draw tomorrow that will be targeted towards Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates.
