On November 18, Canada’s biggest draw sent 5,000 invitations to Express Entry applicants with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off of 472.
In total Canada has issued 92,350 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) this year.
Since few months, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have been announcing draws of 4,200 every two weeks which has created a history as the immigration department have never had such big draws from February.
The immigration application management system of Canada for three federal economic-class programs is known as Express Entry. The federal economic-class programs are the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
CRS scores get evaluated from applicant’s human capital factors such as age, education, work experience, and language ability in English or French. CRS score is given to the federal economic-class programs as well as Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).
An applicant with the highest-ranks in the EE pool receives ITAs in regular invitation rounds.
Tie-break rule was applied in the draw and the timestamp applied was October 27 at 06:18:11 UTC by IRCC. This refers that applicants with a 472 CRS score or above who submitted their profile in the Express Entry pool prior to the decided timestamp receive ITA in the invitation round.
The tie-breaking rule is introduced to manage applications that have the same CRS score. If more than one applicant has the same score, the selection of profile depends on the tie-breaking rule and the first come first serve pattern gets applied.
This year the number of ITAs issued has created a record in the immigration system of Canada as it is the fastest target achieving approach of IRCC. In the history of IRCC’s Express Entry draw announcements, the year ‘2020’ will be noted as an economy shaping year.
The large number of ITAs is in line with Canada’s commitment to welcome over 400,000 new immigrants in 2021, most of them coming through the Express Entry system.
Had fantastic experience. My case officer was Dhara, she was very prompt and dedicated towards it. She was also thorough in the documents and resolve any queries within a day. Wish to have same support in future also.
I would like to thank you to the team and specially Ms. Norin for continuous attention on the file preparation. I am very satisfied with all services. I look forward to seeing great support from winny as always for further processes.
I have started with processing for Canadian PR with the Winny Immigrations. So as far my experience is quite good. My first meeting was set up with Amit Goswami. He is explained me the entire process in detail and answered to my each question. Call back and email feedback to resolve the issues is quite effective with him. I appreciate his support and I looking for the same support till the end of the process. Thank you so much.
I have had a wonderful career-changing experience with Winny. They have really good knowledge, experience and the right people to do the job. Ofcourse, there are many products and may/may not fit all people. But Winny does guide you very well with all information that is required to make the best call for yourself. Remember Winny is to guide you, help you for a career path. A Profile’s success & failure is on the Embassy and Candidate solely. There were a few hiccups in my profile from the embassy side, but it was handled PERFECTLY by the team Winny. That’s what makes it outstanding than all other immigration consultants. I have referred many of my friends and shall continue doing the same. Keep up the good work 💪 Winny!
My experience at Winny is nice. They are very cooperative and giving their client proper suggestions and guidance. Even in pandemic, staff was making all the efforts to function normally. They provide professional service and really extremely great advice. I appreciate the Winny team for their services. They are focusing on accuracy which is good part. Still my process is not completed but till now I am satisfied with the services. Definitely going to recommend to everyone.
