The Canadian Government kicked off the first new Express Entry draw on January 10, 2019 in an impressive way by issuing 3,900 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence with CRS 449 and above.
The highest numbers of invitations are issued in the first draw of the year making way for the large number of invitations in the coming draw cycle. It is expected to see Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) break last year’s Express Entry record of 89,800 Invitation to Apply (ITAs).
The Canada’s new multi-year immigration levels plan, the federal government will welcome more Federal High Skilled Applicants in 2019 than it did last year. The government of Canada has set a target of 81,400 through the programs compared to 74,900 last year.
The latest draw conducted by IRCC applied tie-break rule for inviting migrants under Express Entry. The break even date and time were January 2, 2019 at 11:40:53 UTC. This means that all the candidates who have submitted their profile before the said date and time with CRS 449 and above were invited in this current invitation draw.
To meet the new targets of 2019 and 2020, it is expected that IRCC will issue more ITAs over the course of this year. The previous draw size was increased from 2750 ITAs to 3,900.
If the similar pattern continues, the draw size 3900 ITAs could remain constant or grow larger that might affect the minimum score if the draws are conducted on regular basis.
The current draw CRS cut off 449 was 10 points higher than the December 19 draw with CRS 439.
The Express Entry System manages the pool of candidates under three Federal Skilled Immigration Program- Federal Skilled Worker Program, The Federal Skilled Trade Program and The Canadian Experience Class.
The eligible candidates are assigned a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) for the factors namely age, educational qualification, work experience, language ability etc. The highest ranking applicants are then issued Invitation to Apply for Canadian Permanent Residence through regular conducted CIC draws.
