Canada Immigration Express Entry candidates

Recommended Posts

A new Express Entry draw has issued 3,600 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence — the most invitations issued in a single draw since January 23. 

The cut-off score in the July 10 draw was 460, a decrease of two points over the minimum score of 462 in the previous Express Entry draw held June 26.

The larger draw size reflects the higher admissions targets that have been set for both 2019 and 2020 for the three Federal High Skilled immigration programs that are managed by the Express Entry system. These programs are the Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry also manages a portion of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program, which also has higher admissions targets for 2019 and 2020.

Candidates in the Express Entry pool are ranked based on scores awarded for factors that include age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French. The highest-ranked candidates are issued an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence, or ITA.

Express Entry candidates invited in today’s draw have 60 days to apply for Canadian permanent residence. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has a processing standard of six months for Express Entry applications.

IRCC has now issued 45,400 ITAs this year. This puts the department just over the half-way mark to surpassing the Express Entry record 89,800 ITAs that were issued in 2018.
