Express Entry Draw 106

The 106th Express Entry draw took place this December 12th. For the second time in a row the CRS score of the lowest ranked candidate remained at 445, and for the sixth time in a row, the total intake remained high at 3900.

In the 105th Express Entry draw, the CRS score of the lowest ranked candidate invited saw a drop of 4 points. That is, from 449 to 445. However, this time the CRS score remained at 445 itself though the total intake was 3,900. This is encouraging, especially when we consider the fact that not many high-ranking profiles (above 445) entered the pool since the last round of invitation. By now, aspirants who are closely following the Express Entry draw news are familiar with the current intake trend of 3,900. This means that the CRS score of the lowest ranked candidate could not be hiked more than 445 so that a total of 3,900 candidates could be issued with Invitations To Apply (ITA).

Below are the draw statistics of this 106th Express Entry draw:

Number of Invitations issued: 3,900

Express Entry is a selection system, through which the Federal government of Canada (IRCC) selects candidates for economic immigration to Canada through three programs – Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) – as well as a portion of Provincial Nominations (enhanced nominations)
