The cut-off score of 442 is the same as the past draw, which occurred on February 7. Likewise with the six past draws, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) utilized a tie-break rule. For this situation, the time and date of the tie-break were May 29, 2017, at 07:01:15 UTC. This implies all applicants with a CRS score over 442, and also those candidates with scores of 442 who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before this time, will get an ITA. As has been the situation for every current draw, IRCC is proceeding with the pattern of issuing 3,000 ITAs each round.
With this high number of ITAs issued in each draw, if there are more successive draws, there is a solid probability that the CRS score would drop. Provincial Nomination Programs, connected to the Express Entry had an active couple of weeks. Since the January 24 draw, Express Entry-aligned PNP streams in the regions of Ontario, New Brunswick have opened and Manitoba likewise held a draw for Express Entry candidates. So students will get an extra 600 points if they have a provincial nomination, which leaves them well-positioned for an ITA.

Canada has set higher admission targets for 2018 through Express Entry and its PNPs.

IRCC still has far to go toward achieving its 2018 and 2019 targets. Counting the March 14 draw, Canada has now issued a sum of 14,500 ITAs in 2018. It stays to be perceived how the Government of Canada will meet its objectives. It could mean bigger draws or more continuous draws, or some other approach. “This outcome is a decent case of the change between draws from the Express Entry pool,” said Attorney David Cohen, immigration law firm in Montreal. Canada still has far to go toward achieving its affirmations focuses for coming years and How it will achieve these objectives is the central issue. They are anxious to perceive what’s in store.
