The latest federal draw for Express Entry was held on November 15, 2018.

A total of 3,900 Invitations to Apply (ITA) were issued in this draw. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for this draw was 449.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) used the ‘tie-break’ method to select candidates.

The ‘tie-break’ is a method of choosing candidates with the same CRS score. It ranks candidates based on the time their profile was submitted. The candidate whose profile has been in the pool longer gets priority.

This draw was one of the largest ones held this year.

Candidates, who wish to apply, have to be eligible in one of the following categories:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Class,
  • Federal Skilled Trades Class and
  • Canadian Experience Class.

Eligible candidates receive a score (Comprehensive Ranking System or CRS) and are ranked accordingly. ITAs are issued to higher-ranking applicants in the draws.

This draw left the IRCC less than 8,000 invitations away from defeating the 2017 Express Entry record. Last year, ICCRC issued a total of 86,023 invitations last year.
