The Government of Canada has invited 2,750 candidates to apply for permanent residence in a new Express Entry draw that took place on Dec. 20, 2017. The cut-off Comprehensive Ranking System score for this draw was 446. This latest draw was the 30th draw to take place in 2017 and brings the total number of ITAs issued so far this year to 86,023. This total represents 57 per cent of the 150,868 ITAs issued since January 2015, when Canada’s EE came into effect.
Wednesday’s draw follows last month that saw four draws over its first three weeks. Those draws followed the Government of Canada’s November announcement of its new focused immigration plan, which is expected to raise the number of candidates granted permanent residence through the federal Express Entry system by nearly 20 per cent between 2018 and 2020.
Since the announcement, six draws have seen a total of 11,045 ITAs issued.
With higher ITA targets announced for the Express Entry system’s three economic categories in 2018, it’s expected that IRCC will have to perform either larger or more frequent draws from Express Entry pool in the New Year, or both. Any of those scenarios could serve to lower the cut-off CRS score.
