Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 3,600
applicants with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 463
or higher to apply for permanent residence. The CRS score increased 6
points from the previous draw held on August 20th, 2019.
The 3,600 Invitations to Apply (ITA) issued in today's draw brings the total number issued in 2019 to 59,800
. As of July 10th, IRCC has been issuing expanded draw sizes of 3,600 ITAs, an increase of 250 ITAs per draw compared to most of the rounds held this year.
Today’s draw marks the 125th
round of invitations since Express Entry came into force and with that, IRCC has applied its tie-breaking rule with the time stamp of August 23rd, 2019, at 13:33:34 UTC
. This simply means that all candidates with a CRS score of 463
or above, and previous candidates with a score of 463
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.
