Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 3,350 applicants with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 465 or higher to apply for permanent residence, a five-point decrease from the previous draw.
The number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) has remained steady at 3,350 for most of 2019 and the CRS score is expected to remain quite high for the foreseeable future. The 3,350 ITAs brings 2019's total to 38,450,
and after today's draw, the
IRCC has released an additional 6,250 ITAs compared to this time last year.
Today’s draw marks the 118th
round of invitations since Express Entry came into force and with that, IRCC has applied its tie-breaking rule with the time stamp of June 6th, 2019, at 13:51:59 UTC
. This simply means that all candidates with a CRS score of 465
or above, and previous candidates with a score of 465
or above who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before the selected tie-breaking date and time, will receive an invitation in this round.
