According to the 2022-2023 Allocation of ACT Nomination Pages:
As of December 22nd Canberra Matrix Invitation Round:&
Total Approvals: 1266 approvals | Subclass 190 – 411 approvals | Subclass 491 – 855 approvals.

Remaining Allocation: 2,784 nomination places (464 per month) | Subclass 190 – 1,614 (pro rata 269 per month) | Subclass 491 – 1,170 (pro rata 195 per month).
The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has a fixed number of nomination places available each month – pro-rata against the annual allocation. The highest ranked Matrix in each occupation in demand in Australia is invited to apply for ACT nomination.
The cut-off for the nomination depends on the date & time of the Matrix submission, occupation cap & demand, and the remaining monthly allocation. The more the demand for an occupation in Australia – the higher the rank of the Matrix score invited.
Take note! The cut-off Matrix score is an indication only. It does not guarantee that an invitation will be issued. Also, invitations will not be issued if the candidate has an active application in the system or has previously received an ACT nomination.
Don't wait. The time will never be just right.
