The New Express Entry draw was conducted on 3rd April 2019 inviting 3,350 applicants with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 451 and above to apply for Canada permanent residence. The minimum CRS score in this draw was one-point lower than the cut-off score of previous Express Entry invitation round that was CRS 452.
In this current invitation draw, a tie-break up rule was applied where the applicants who had their Express Entry profile before January 9, 2019, at 07:35:09 UTC were given ITAs. This means that applicants who have submitted their profile before the said date and time were given invitations in this current draw.
This was the third consecutive draw in which the cut-off score has gone down. As per the trend, the minimum CRS score keeps on decreasing if the invitation rounds are conducted on regular intervals in small time-gap. The below graph clearly shows the minimum CRS and time gap from December 19, 2018, when the CRS score was 439 after 10 days January 10 draw was conducted at CRS 449 and so on.
A total of 3,350 ITAs were issued bringing the total of Invitation to Apply to 24,550. A below-mentioned graph of ITA results by April 3 for both the years shows 2019 ahead of 2018 by 7,050 ITAs.
This was the fifth consecutive draw in which Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued 3,350 ITAs. Draw sizes, however, may increase in the coming weeks as the immigration levels for 2019 and 2020 is higher.
