The Government of Canada held its largest Express Entry draw of 2018 on September 5, issuing 3,900 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
This is the fourth all-program draw in 2018 with a minimum score of 440, which is the lowest Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score drawn in 2018 to date.
The tie-break date and time used in this draw was April 29, 2018, at 14:28:34 UTC. This means that all candidates with a CRS score above 440, as well as those candidates with scores of 440 who submitted their profile before this specified date and time, received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in this invitation round.
The Express Entry system manages the profiles of candidates in Canada’s three main federal economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates are ranked according to their CRS score and the highest-ranked candidates are issued an ITA through regular invitation rounds.
