Increase of ITAs issued in the recent Express Entry Draws.

Express Entry draw has been paused for almost 18 months from December 2020 and the draw resumed recently on July 6. It was the fifth all-program Express Entry draw that held with no specific program. Both Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) were eligible to be invited.

During the pause of the Express Entry draw in 2020, CEC and other Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) conducted their draws. On September 2021, CEC draws were also paused. The covid spread around the globe was ferocious during the time and it’s why the IRCC planned to pause the immigration programs and imposed strict travel regulations.

There was a notable increase of ITAs on the recent draws issued by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). 2750 ITAs were issued with the minimum CRS cut-off of 516.

It is noticed that since all-program draws resumed, the number of invitations issued has been growing rapidly. Exactly 250 invitations are being increased every draw. For instance, the first July draw invited 1500 candidates, and on the second draw, it was 1750.


Express Entry

Express Entry is one of Canada’s main immigration pathways for experienced, skilled newcomers. It’s the main managing system for other immigration programs like Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Provincial, Nominee Program (PNP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).  Candidates eligible in the Express Entry pool will be issued invitations to apply for any one program.


What is the Invitation to Apply (ITA)

The ITA is an automatically generated letter sent to Express Entry applicants via their online account. ITAs are given to applicants who place first in a round of invitations based on their Comprehensive Ranking System score (CRS).

Once they receive the invitation, the candidate can apply for permanent residency. IRCC officer will decide on the approval of permanent residence after conducting all the necessary procedures.

IRCC is expecting to make a change in 2023 to give Express Entry the authority to issue invitations to the individuals that target with specific work experience, language ability, or education believing that it gives major labor force and economic support. So, in the future, the CRS score could become less vital. Also, Canadian immigration minister Sean Fraser proposed a statement at the collision during a technology conference, “If we can project skills that are needed over the next 20 to 30 years, we can bring people who can hit the ground running and make a major economic impact.” This proves that Canada is open to a huge number of immigrants.
