Towards the end of 2020, the Canadian government is breaking records with high ITAs being issued. In the latest 18th November draw, there were 5000 ITAs issued to the express entry candidates. It has been a record-breaking year, and there is a new category added to the list.

On 18th November 2020, its largest Express Entry draw was announced by the Canadian government. There were 5000 ITAs issued to aspiring candidates. The applicants selected required the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 472 points. It means the applicants who achieved 472 points or above were shortlisted for the ITA by the IRCC.

The Key Highlights of the Draw - 18th November 2020

  • ITAs sent – 5000
  • CRS score - 472

The  CRS score required was set at 472 points for express entry applicants. The express entry program has three streams to apply to - Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. The applicants are selected on the basis of meeting the point score, along with a few other eligibility requirements. The points are calculated based on age, education, work experience, and language ability in English or French. The highest scoring applicants received the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence.

The Tiebreak rule for the latest draw was set on 27th October at 06:18:11 UTC. It helps rank the candidates who have received the same CRS score of 472 points. The invitations submitted on or before the stipulated date and time will be considered in the latest draw.

This year the CRs score requirement has been around 470 points.  On 6th August 2020, the Federal Skilled Trades Program-only draw required trades workers with a CRS of 415. The applicants selected in the Canada PNP are eligible for 600 bonus points in the Express entry system.

With the latest draw, the total number of ITAs issued so far are 92350.  A large number of ITAs issued towards the end of the year are in line with Canada's commitment to invite over 400,000 new immigrants in 2021.
