In the latest Canada Express Entry draw held on December 11, a total of 3200 candidates were issued invitations to apply for permanent residence. The Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) cut-off score for candidates to be selected in the draw was 472. Compared to the previous draw held on November 27, the score is one point higher.

Tie-break rule was applied in the draw, which means not all candidates with a CRS score of 472 received invitations. The time stamp given for the tie-break was December 6, 2019 at 03:03:49 UTC. The draw prioritised those who had submitted their Express Entry profiles before the said date and time.

Usually the time gap between two Express Entry draws is two weeks. So the next draw was supposed to take place on December 25, which is highly unlikely, as it is a public holiday in Canada. It is expected that next draw would be taking place at a later date.

The total number of ITAs issued in the December 11 draw was 3200. The number is 400 lower compared to the November 27 draw, when the number of ITAs issued was 3600. The lesser number of ITAs might be the reason for the increase in CRS cut-off score by one point.

According to the Immigration Levels Plan of Canada for the year 2019-2021, the country is planning to admit 256000 candidates through Express Entry alone. Another 200000 newcomers would be admitted through Provincial Nominee Programs during the plan period.
