On March 4, 2020, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the fifth Express Entry invitation round in 2020. In round #138, Canada issued 3,900 Invitations to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence, 600 ITAs less than in the previous round. The Comprehensive Ranking System cut-off score in this draw was 471 points, one point more than two weeks ago. The tie-breaking rule for this round was February 24, 2020, at 06:02:57 UTC. As of March 3, 2020, there are 145,436 profiles registered in the pool, 1,394 more compared to the previous round. The number of candidates with the CRS score in the range 451-600 is 21,905. At this point, IRCC does not provide a detailed breakdown of the scores within the range, thus we cannot find out if the number of candidates with very high points has reduced. This means we cannot predict a reduction of the cut-off score in the next rounds. To date, Canada issued ITAs to 18,700 candidates in 2020.
