2019-10-02 – Canada immigration authorities have conducted the largest Express Entry draw in nine months, issuing Invitations to Apply to 3,900 candidates.

The October 2 draw equals the largest of 2019, ending the recent trend for the last six draws of issuing 3,600 ITAs.

The draw saw a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score of 464 points, two points higher than the previous Express Entry draw.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has now invited 67,300 candidates in 2019, against a high-skilled immigration admission target of 81,400.

IRCC broke the record for annual Express Entry ITAs in 2018 with 89,800.

The draw saw the tie-breaking rule implemented on September 20, 2019, at 11.05 am EST. If more than one candidate had the minimum CRS score, only those who submitted their Express Entry profiles before this date and time received invitations.

This was the 20th round of invitations under Express Entry in 2019 and 127th overall.
