3,900 Express Entry candidates invited to apply for permanent residence in new draw

The Government of Canada has invited 3,900 Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a new draw held October 3. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score for this draw was 445.
Today’s invitation round was the third draw from the Express Entry pool in three weeks and marks a return to 3,900 Invitations to Apply, or ITAs, for all-program invitation rounds — the largest number drawn in 2018.
The Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates in Canada’s three main federal economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates are ranked according to their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which awards points based on factors including work experience, education, age and proficiency in English or French, Canada’s two official languages.
The highest-ranked candidates are issued an Invitation to Apply , or ITA, through regular invitation rounds. ITAs-issued-2018-4*The May 30 and September 24 draws were program-specific.
This year has seen IRCC introduce large, standardized draw sizes that have increased gradually over the course of the year up to the current high of 3,900 ITAs.
IRCC established a base of 2,750 ITAs over the first two draws of 2018 and then ramped up steadily by increments of 250 or 500 roughly every eight weeks, reaching 3,900 ITAs on September 5. The only all-program invitation round to deviate from this pattern was the Express Entry draw on September 19, when the draw size was reduced to 3,500.
IRCC has now issued a total of 66,400 ITAs over 21 draws in 2018.
Under itsMulti-Year Immigration Levels Plan, the Government of Canada has a target of 74,900 new admissions for 2018 and 81,400 for 2019 through the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class. ITAs-draw-101-Targets
Today’s CRS minimum of 445 is an increase of four points over the September 19 draw, which had a minimum CRS score of 441.
The tie-break date and time used in this draw was October 2, 2018, at 04:02:11 UTC, meaning all candidates with a CRS score above 445, as well as those candidates with scores of 445 who submitted their profile before this specified date and time, received an ITA in this invitation round.
Express Entry candidates can improve their ranking in a number of ways, including a provincial nomination that results in 600 additional CRS points.
Express Entry-linked Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) have been very active in 2018, and new streams were introduced in Nova Scotia and Alberta over the summer.
Every Canadian province and territory with a PNP now has at least one Express Entry-linked nomination stream.
