Canada Invites 3,350 Candidates in Latest Express Entry Draw3,350 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply for permanent residency on May 29's draw as Canada edges closer to the midway of its 2019 Invitation to  Apply (ITA) target. The government of Canada is well on the right track in achieving its immigration goals for 2019 to 2021 as many of the indices are flying high. The Express Entry draw held yesterday with 3,350 candidates issued ITAs brings the total number of ITAs already issued in 2019 to 35,100, almost halfway through the target of 81,400 permanent residents set for 2019 by Ottawa. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score in the draw was 470, north of the lowest of 438 seen in the first quarter of the year. For candidates who scored the same minimum score, date, and time of submission were used for ranking. The tie-breaking rule applied was May 23, 2019, at 10:18:56 UTC. Candidates who received ITAs are required to complete and submit an application for permanent residency within a 60-day window. This is the first step towards becoming a permanent resident after receiving ITA.

Express Entry System

Typically, Canada holds Express Entry draws every two weeks, and each draw has its CRS score based on education level, language proficiency, occupation, age of candidates as well as family ties in the country. The first two draws this year issued 3,900 ITAs each, and every other draw has been set at 3,350 ITAs. Candidates who are not invited at their first attempt remain in the selection pool for a whole year during which they can get ITA in subsequent draws. While in the pool, candidates can improve their CRS score by raising their language proficiency, attaining the higher educational qualification, getting a job offer in Canada, or gaining relevant work experience.
