With the new draw, the total number of ITAs issued in Express Entry draws this year is 97350. It means the Express Entry is setting a record in terms of the number of ITAs issued, having already exceeded the target Canada had set for Express Entry immigration this year in the previous draw. The high number of ITAs in these draws aligns with Canada’s goal to welcome more than 400,000 new immigrants in 2021.
A tie-break rule was applied, the time-stamp given being October 15, 2020, at 08:50:10 UTC. It means the latest Express Entry draw prioritized those candidates who had a minimum CRS score of 469 and submitted their Express Entry profiles before the said date and time.

Canada Express Entry

The Express Entry system of Canada manages applications for immigration under the three major federal economic immigration programs of Canada, which are Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. Under the Express Entry, each immigration candidate is assessed on the basis of various eligibility factors such as age, education, work experience, English and French language proficiency and awarded a score out of 1200 under the Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS). The candidates with the highest scores receive Invitations to Apply for permanent residence in Canada. This year, the CRS cut-off score in all-program Express Entry draws has been hovering above 470 for most of the all-program draws. The lowest CRS score required in any draw this year was 415 in the August 8 draw that exclusively targeted Skilled Trades candidates.
