Express entry closer to break the ITA record via the latest draw

Express Entry Latest Draw 12th Dec 18

New draw that was held on Wednesday makes the total number of invitations sent in this year to the total of 85,900 ITAs, just 123 less than the total invitations that were sent in the last year – 86,023. Last year at the same time the total number of invitations that were issued was 83,273 with the last draw held on December 20.

A total of 3,900 invitations were issued in the latest draw. With a couple of weeks left in this year, and the express draws being held by Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in the interval of the same duration, it is possible to break the record of most ITAs in a single year.

CRS score cut-off in this draw was same as the previous one which was around 445 points.

IRCC has used tie-break rule in the 23 December draw. Candidates who have scored 445 points or more and have applied for the permanent residence visa before November 28, 2018 at 09:51:43 UTC were issued Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Express entry program manages the profile of candidates who have applied under Canada’s Federal High Skilled economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Workers Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class. Candidates profiles are ranked in express entry program based on some eligibility factors like age, educational qualifications, work experience, language proficiency etc via the help of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Higher ranked profiles are then given an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for a permanent residence visa.

Extra points are awarded to the candidates who are able to land a provincial nomination, have a sibling living in Canada or an arranged employment in the CRS. A provincial nomination awards the candidates with 600 CRS points, with the CRS cut-off set at 445 these many points effectively guaranteed that candidates are able to get an ITA.

Latest data from IRCC for the year 2018 shows that 12 percent of ITAs were given to the express entry candidates who were nominated by the provinces for permanent residence. Last year the percentage for provincial nomination candidates under express entry program was around 7 percent. This increase shows that IRCC’s new multi-year immigration levels plan; to increase provincial nomination is on the right path. By 2021, they have targeted to reach 71,300 that is an increase of nearly 30 percent over this year’s Federal High Skilled Target of 55,000.

IRCCs target for 2019 is also set to rise to 81,400 which is an increase of 6,500 over 2018’s target of 74,900. Reference is taken from CIC News.
