The government of Canada has issued 3750 invitations to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence in the latest Express Entry draw conducted on 11th July, 2018. The comprehensive ranking system score was 442.
The draw was conducted with a tie-break rule. The tie-break time was June 26, 2018 at 13:18:55 UTC; all applicants with a CRS score of 442 and above who submitted their profile before the specified time and date will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in this draw.
The CRS score of July 11, 2018 draw is same as that of previous round on June 25 and the 3750 ITAs issued is the same of the last two draws, held on June 13 and June 25.
The reason of constant CRS score from two times despite the large draw size can be the time difference between June 25 and July 11 draw. More time between the Express Entry draws allow more time to reload the effect of elevating cut-off score.
The draw sizes began at 2,750 ITAs this year and have consistently increased to 3,000 then 3,500 and now 3,750.
With the latest draw, Immigration, Refugees Canada Citizenship (IRCC) has issued a total of 43,450 ITAs in 2018 over 14 draws.
Given the set target by Canada to invite more number of immigrants in 2018 and 2019, draws may continue to be both large in size and frequent in the coming months.
