Express Entry Issues 92,350 ITAs for Canada PR

The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) are spearheading to reach 100,000 milestones in issuing Express Entry invitations for Canada PR. In a week-span, IRCC held its 168th Express Entry draw earlier last week issuing 5,000 invitations to apply (ITAs) for permanent residence.

All the registered profiles in the federal Express Entry pool are evaluated based on a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This system takes into account: Age, Education, Work Experience & Language Proficiency in English or French. (A recent update in CRS calculation gives more preference to candidates with french-speaking ability. Click here to read more)

A candidate is assessed out of a maximum of 1200 points. November 25 draw saw a decrease in qualifying CRS to 469 from the previous high at 472 for selection.

Why do we think IRCC will continue to increase Express Entry draw sizes in near future? 


  • The exuberant target of welcoming over 200,000 new immigrants every year until 2023 through economic-class programs
  • Those who receive invitations now will be able to enter Canada only in 2021. It takes upto six months or beyond to process the application 
  • The reduced refugees intake temporarily is replaced with more number of immigrants intakes under the economic class immigration
