3,500 Express Entry applicants have been invited to apply for Canada PR in the 99th Express Entry draw that took place on September 19, 2018. The least score required in this draw for Comprehensive Ranking System is 441.
The tie-break time and date utilized in this draw was at 10:28:45 UTC and on September 6, 2018, indicating all applicants with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (C.R.S) score of 441 and higher than 441 points who presented their profile prior to this specified time and date, got an Invitation to Apply (I.T.A) in this round of invitation.
While current draw size was lesser than the earlier Express Entry draw held on September 5, 2018, which announced a high of 3,900 I.T.A’s, it is still higher than the I.T.A’s number that the Canadian Government was issuing in draws approximately this equivalent point in 2017, when sizes of draw dropped under 3,000.
The Express Entry system maintains the candidate’s profiles in Canada’s three major economic federal immigration categories:
- Federal Skilled Trades Class
- Federal Skilled Worker Class
- Canadian Experience Class
Applicants are ranked as per their C.R.S score, and regular invitation rounds issue the highest-ranked applicants with an I.T.A.
Chances for Express Entry Applicants to Increase CRS Score
Express Entry applicants can increase their ranking in many ways, along with a provincial nomination that issues in 600 further C.R.S points. Express Entry associated Provincial Nominee Programs (P.N.P’s) have been extraordinarily active and innovative in 2018. One of the most dynamic and innovative Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream newly altered its CRS least requirement from 400 to the least score that will now be decided by the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program director.
I.R.C.C has now announced a sum of 62,100 I.T.A’s above 19 draws in 2018, which puts it somewhat ahead of the 60,742 I.T.A’s that was announced above the first 19 draws of 2017.
