Lowest score during 2018 in Express entry draws

Canada set a new Express Entry invitation record Wednesday in a draw featuring the lowest minimum score of 2018.

The December 19 draw issued 3,900 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence to Express Entry candidates with scores as low as 439.


A shorter time between draws means fewer candidates have an opportunity to enter a profile in the Express Entry pool. When this is combined with a large draw size, the effect can be a reduced minimum score.
