Canada issues another 4,200 ITA's in Latest Express Entry draw
Canada holds second all-program draw in two weeks
Canada held its 163rd Express Entry draw, inviting immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence on September 16.
The new Express Entry round issued invitations to candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of 472. This is three points less than the past all-program draw, the biggest drop since all-program draws resumed in July.
A total of 4,200 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence were issued that attraction, which is the second all-program draw Canada has held within a couple of weeks. This routine is more congruent with pre-coronavirus invitation rounds in which all-program draws were held every 2 weeks.
This draw matches the 4,200 ITAs issued at an Express Entry around on September two , which ties it for the second-biggest draw ever. The large number of invitations being issued by Canada is a strong indication that it remains committed to welcoming elevated levels of immigrants in 2021 and beyond.
Express Entry is your program system that manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three main economic immigration courses — the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) along with the Canadian Expertise Course (CEC).
The highest-ranked candidates in the Express Entry pool have been issued ITAs in regular invitation rounds.
IRCC utilized its tie-break rule in the current draw. The timestamp used was March 9, 2020, at 13:03:40 UTC. It follows that all applicants with a CRS score above 472, in addition to those applicants with scores of 472 who entered their profile at the Express Entry pool prior to the chosen time and date, obtained an ITA inside this invitation round.
The tie-break rule is utilized to rank candidates who possess the exact same CRS score. A candidate’s CRS score stays the primary factor in choosing candidates to be encouraged to make an application for permanent residence.
Factors which may affect the cut-off CRS score include the dimensions of the draw (bigger draws can produce a decrease minimal CRS score) and the period between draws (shorter intervals between draws can help to lower the CRS score).
Eligible applicants for each program have been issued a score under Express Entry’s CRS, which awards points for factors such as age, education, proficient work experience and proficiency in both English or French.
Though a job offer isn’t required in order to be eligible under the Express Entry system, the CRS does award additional points to applicants who have one.
The Government of Canada has a processing benchmark of six months for permanent residence applications filed through the Express Entry system.
