Canada Has Now Issued 82100 ITAs Through Express Entry In 2019
A new draw from the federal Express Entry pool on December 11 produced 3,200 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence with a minimum CRS score 472.
A set number of the highest-ranked candidates are invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws from the pool. These invitation rounds typically take place every two weeks and the vast majority involve candidates from all three Express Entry-managed categories.
The cut-off CRS score is determined by factors including the number of candidates in the Express Entry pool, the time between draws and the number of ITAs issued.
Express Entry candidates who obtain a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score and are effectively guaranteed an ITA.
The past two weeks have seen enhanced nomination streams in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, British Columbia and Nova Scotia issue invitations to Express Entry candidates.
