Another Express Entry draw was held on October 16, issuing 500 new invitations to apply for permanent residence under Canadas Express Entry system.

The CRS score of the lowest-ranked candidate was 357 this round, 107 points lower than the previous draw on October 2. The drastic drop in the CRS score was due to the fact that this was a program-specific draw only inviting Federal Skilled Trades Programcandidates, while the previous round on October 2 applied to three programs. The tie-breaking rule invited the lowest-ranking candidates who submitted profiles before March 4, 2019.

Express Entry draws are a way for skilled foreign nationals to fast-track their citizenship application. Candidates profiles are given a score based on credentials such as work experience, language skills, and education, in addition to factors such as having family in Canada. Top-scoring candidates then receive invitations via the Express Entry draw, held approximately every two weeks. As of October 11, there were 125,881 candidates in the Express Entry pool.
