Let’s see the last three year’s Express entry pattern for Federal Skilled Trades Candidates and analyze…

The following table will explain to you the FST draw’s number of invitations received, frequency, and especially the lowest cut-off score invited on each draw.

Findings and Recommendations:

Based on the above pattern, soon we may expect a draw for Federal Skilled Trades candidates. So, my recommendations to the FST candidates are:

  • Create your Express Entry profile as soon as possible
  • Data accuracy is important while creating the profile
  • Look for ways to improve the score.

Create an Express Entry profile to grab the opportunity.
