The Canadian Government held the third Express Entry Draw of the year 2019 and created records along with it. IRCC has issued 11,500 Invitations to Apply this January which is by far the highest since the introduction of the Express Entry System.
The Canadian Government held the 110th Express Entry Draw on the 30th of January and issued 3,350 Invitations to Apply to the Express Entry Candidates. It should be noted that the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System Score during this particular draw was 438 which is a significant reduction when compared to the previous Express Entry Draw (the CRS Score during the previous Express Entry Draw is 443). This is also the lowest CRS Score since the 4th of October 2017.
The Express Entry System introduced in 2015 is responsible for managing Canada’s three most important economic immigration programs which are the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Canadian Experience Class and the Federal Skilled Trades Class respectively. Individuals who create an Express Entry Profile will be assessed on several factors like age, education, work experience and given CRS points accordingly. Candidates who have the highest CRS scores will be issued an Invitation to Apply in the Express Entry Draws.
The tie-breaker rule applied for the draw held on the 30th of January was that of April 26, 2018, at 05:00:46 UTC. This actually means that candidates who have secured a CRS Score of 438 and above and who have entered the Express Entry Pool before the specified date & time will have received an invitation to apply in this round.
The 3,350 Invitations issued makes it up to a total of 11,150 Invitations issued this January making it the largest start ever since the introduction of the Express Entry System. This effectively brings out how serious the Canadian Government is about meeting its immigration goals for the years 2019 & 2020. In an effort to meet the set immigration goals, it is expected that the IRCC will be issuing more Invitations to Apply this year than the previous year.
