In the fresh Express Entry draw that was held on July 25th, the Canadian Government chose to issue 3,750 invitations to apply, for the candidates seeking permanent residence. The CRS cut-off score in this round was 441, which is just one point lesser than the round of July 11th. There was a 14 days gap between the two draws of July 2018.
The authorities used the tie-break date and time for this draw also and it was December 31, 2017, at 12:14:21 UTC.
This was the fourth draw which has issued 3,750 ITAs consecutively. During June it issued a record 7,500 ITAs. Additionally accounting this draw, during the present year, IRCC has totally issued 47,200 ITAs. The admission target for the entire year (2018) is 74,900.
Some of experts are keen to watch whether the draw size can increase above 3,750. In case IRCC has larger or frequent draws, this will lead to reduction in the cut-off CRS score.
Also during the present year there were two draws in January, of 2,750 ITAs. Furthermore there were four draws of 3,000 ITAs each in February, as well as in March. Moreover, there were four draws of 3,500 ITAs each, in April/May. The draw held on June 13 invited 3,750 candidates.
The Express Entry application system of Canada manages the pool of candidates for its three economic immigration categories. These are the Federal Skilled Trades Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Class, and the Canadian Experience Class.
The candidates, who score top ranks in the pool, receive the ITAs, in the invitation rounds.
Such candidates, who are passionate and hard working for migrating and have English language proficiency to adjust in a modern society, can obtain an ITA. IRCC is presently working with great efforts to meet large admissions targets, during the year.
