Nearly 300 Express Entry system candidates wanting to settle in Alberta received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in the latest Alberta Express Entry selection draw.
The 294 candidates selected needed a minimum 400 points under Express Entry’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) in order to receive an invitation.
This minimum score was 38 points lower than the lowest score drawn through a federal Express Entry invitation round in 2019, which was 438 on January 30.
The Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates are ranked in the pool based on their CRS score, which considers factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.
