CANADIAN EXPRESS ENTRY REVIEW 2018
The half yearly draw of the Canadian Express Entry selections that ended in June 2018 stand out in the number of Invitation To Apply (ITA’s) issued. This is the substantially high when we compare the data of the Federal Program since its inception in 2015. In the running second quarter of the year, two rounds of Express Entry draws were conducted and 7,500 Invitation To Apply (ITA’s) were issued to candidates for the Canadian permanent residence application in the month of June. The figure of June 2018 has crumbled all the records of the preceding years.
The Express Entry system allows economic immigrants to get settled in Canada. An Express Entry is the application system that manages the pool of eligible candidates for the three main economic immigration classes namely the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class. The highest-ranked candidates in the Express Entry pool are issued “Invitation To Apply” (ITA’s) in regular invitation rounds.
The frequency and as well as the larger rounds of invitation draws has positively lowered the Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS), thereby increasing the number of invitations send in June. More importantly, the recent draw on June 25th saw a CRS cut-off score of 442.
The number of Invitation To Apply (ITA’s) issued in each program draw of 2018 has gradually increased over the course of the year. If IRCC maintains this invitation round schedule with large rounds of draws every two weeks heading through the summer, it could result in a further reduction of the Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS).
60 CALENDAR DAY APPLICATION DEADLINE
The highlight in the month of June was IRCC’s announcement on reducing the application deadline to 60-calender days post receiving an Invitation To Apply (ITA’s) for permanent residence. This change is effective from June 26, 2018. If a candidate misses the 60-day timeframe, the Invitation to Apply for permanent residence that was issued remains invalid. The candidate would be required to re-enter the Express Entry pool.
