The November 13th draw experienced a tie-breaking rule that means every candidate with 472 points will not able to get ITA. With a large number of people having a score of 472, candidates applied before Oct. 8, 2019, at 10:46:01 UTC will be on the priority to get an invitation.
The entire Express Entry system directs a pool of eligible candidates that comprises of Canada’s main three categories for federal high skilled immigration programs.
A candidate must score well as per their points for eligibility criteria such as age, skilled work experience, education, and language proficiency. All the eligible candidates are ranked in the pool of the Express Entry system and awarded with a particular score to contest with other candidates. Candidates with a valid job offer get additional points but this job offer is not a mandatory requirement.
These draws are issued every two weeks in order to issue an invitation to the candidates who hold the highest ranks as per the CRS system and able to apply for Canadian PR. With this latest draw, it is evident that IRCC manages to invite more candidates. With few more draws to go for this year, it is evident that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) may exceed the records of last year as the present records are 1,100 ITAs ahead of the last year. IRCC is mainly focussing on economic categories managed through express entry including Provincial Nominee Program for the year 2019-20
It was expected that IRCC could exceed its 2018 ITA record this year given its higher admissions targets for the three Express Entry-managed economic immigration categories and Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program for both 2019 and 2020.
