4200 ITAs issued in September 30 all-program Express Entry draw

Express Entry draw

In the federal Express Entry draw held on September 30, Canada invited 4200 immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence in the country. Among those invited in the draw were Federal Skilled Worker Program candidates, which means unlike several previous draws, the draw did not exclusively target any particular immigration program like Canadian Experience Class(CEC) or Provincial Nominee Program(PNP). The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score required for candidates to be invited in the draw was 471, one point lower than the previous all-program draw held on September 16. With the latest draw, the total number of Express Entry Invitations to Apply issued so far this year has reached 78350.

The high number of ITAs issued in the latest draw proves that Canada remains committed to maintaining high level of immigration in 2020. The latest draw is the 164th Express Entry draw being conducted by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Canada (IRCC) and the 31st draw of the year. The September 30 draw is also the fifth all-program draw to be held after Canada introduced border restrictions on March 18 in the wake of the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.
Tie-break rule was applied in the draw and the time-stamp given was March 2, 2020 at 12:37:25 UTC. It means the draw prioritized those who submitted their profiles before the said date and time.
