The Government of Canada has invited 3,900 Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a new draw held October 3. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score for this draw was 445.
Today’s invitation round was the third draw from the Express Entry pool in three weeks and marks a return to 3,900 Invitations to apply or ITAs, for all-program invitation rounds — the largest number drawn in 2018.
*The May 30 and September 24 draws were program-specific.
This year has seen IRCC introduce large, standardized draw sizes that have increased gradually over the course of the year up to the current high of 3,900 ITAs.
IRCC established a base of 2,750 ITAs over the first two draws of 2018 and then ramped up steadily by increments of 250 or 500 roughly every eight weeks, reaching 3,900 ITAs on September 5. The only all-program invitation round to deviate from this pattern was the Express Entry draw on September 19, when the draw size was reduced to 3,500.
IRCC has now issued a total of 66,400 ITAs over 21 draws in 2018.FIND OUT ABOUT PNP PROGRAMS
