On October 12th, 2022, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held its eighth all-program draw of 2022 through the Express Entry system. In today’s draw, 4,250 invitations to apply (ITAs) were issued to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 500 or higher.
An all-program draw considers every candidate in the Express Entry pool, rather than the program-specific rounds, and invites these candidates to apply for permanent residence based on their CRS score. Candidates at or above the minimum CRS score in the pool will be invited to apply for permanent residence.
IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of October 10, 2022, 17:10:53 UTC, meaning candidates with a score of 500 were invited to apply if they had submitted their Express Entry profile before the timestamp.
