A new Express Entry draw held August 22 has issued a total of 3,750 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score in this draw was 440.
IRCC has now issued a total of 54,700 ITAs over 17 draws in 2018, which puts it slightly ahead of the 54,487 ITAs that were issued over the first 17 draws of 2017. However, IRCC had issued 60,742 ITAs in 2017 by this same point in August, which in that sense puts IRCC 6,042 ITAs behind last year’s pace.
A total of 86,023 ITAs were issued in 2017, which more than doubled the ITA totals of 2015 and 2016 combined. Given Canada’s increased admission targets for 2018 and 2019, it remains possible that this year’s total could surpass the number of ITAs issued in 2017.
