3350 candidates issued invitations in June 12 Express Entry draw

In the latest Express Entry draw held on June 12, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC) issued 3350 Invitations to Apply(ITAs) for permanent residence in Canada. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut-off threshold for the latest draw was 465, five points lower than the score required in the previous draw. The CRS cut-off threshold for the draw held on May 29 was 470.

As in the previous draws, tie-break rule was applied in the latest draw too, the time stamp given being June 6, 2019 at 13:51:59 UTC. It means not all candidates with a CRS score of above 465 received invitations. Priority was given to those candidates who submitted their profiles before the said date and time.

This is the 12th Express Entry draw to be held in 2019 and the 119th since the Express Entry system came into existence in 2015. With 38,450 invitations issued so far, it appears that 2019 will be yet another great year as far as Express Entry is concerned. The number is 6,250 more than the total number of ITAs issued during the same period of time in 2018, the year which saw a record 89,800 ITAs being issued. Canada has set an even higher target for 2019 and it means the CRS cut-off threshold is likely to come down in the upcoming draws.

The Government of Canada aims to process applications for permanent residence from Express Entry candidates within six months or less.
