As of Monday October 15, 2018, 3900 invitations for Permanent Residency have been issued with an overall minimum score of 440 as a requirement.
IRCC implemented a “tie-break” rule, which was originally introduced on June 6, 2017 that allows the Officials to better manage Invitation Rounds.In this case, IRCC wished to issue 3900 ITAs (Invitations to Apply), therefore the CRS score and submission time of the 3900thcandidate in the pool will establish the minimum Requirement and most recent submission time of this particular draw.Previous to June 2017, any and all Candidates that met the minimum CRS score requirement in one draw were issued an ITA, but it made it hard for the Department to manage invitation rounds. Any applicants who received a score of 440 or higher and submitted applications before or on September 18, 2018 by 11:06 UTC were invited.
IRCC has now issued over 70,000 ITAs this year so far nearing their target of 74,900 new admissions for 2018 through Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trade, and Canadian Experience Class.
